Re: Great Day for College Football
SEC teams ARE rewarded for playing each other. You play good teams it helps your schedule strength and nobody plays as many good teams as the SEC does. They have played some tough OOC games as well.
LSU played Virginia Tech. It is one of the best OOC wins any team has this year. Auburn played South Florida and Kansas State. Florida has FSU coming up. Tennessee played Cal. Georgia played Oklahoma State and still has Ga Tech. Alabama played FSU. Vanderbilts last game is against Wake Forrest. USC has Clemson coming up. Mississippi played Mizzou.
The Big Ten might collectively play a tougher schedule but they can't match the competition the SEC has faced at the top. Michigan played Oregon and Illinois played Mizzou. After that all that I don't see a whole lot. Washington, Washington State, Notre Dame, Syracuse and Pitt.
Maybe the weak sisters the Big Ten picks on are better than those the SEC beats up but I don't see how that is relevant. You should get credit for the good teams you beat. If your whole season is cupcakes that is one thing but I don't see any reason to break down Florida Atlantic vs. Kent or La Monroe vs. Citadel.
