Re: Great Day for College Football
The SEC still has games with Wake Forrest, Georgia Tech, Clemson and Florida State. Not world beaters but very resectable out of confernce opponents.
I'm not from the south nor do I have a horse the race. I'm not a member of the SEC. I'm a college football fan who enjoys OSU vs. Michigan just as much as I enjoy LSU-Auburn.
I don't know where this whole thing started. This thread or as a whole. Personally I have never made the starting comment in one of these conference debates. I usually jump in when I see someone slicing up the SEC while ignoring the same polls, computers and rankings that they use to defend their own team. I have no intention to go around promoting the SEC. But I do enjoy debates about the whole thing. At the same time I'm not sure why you have to go and announce that the SEC should just leave the BCS because of comments from some guy from Maine who has no affiliations with the SEC. You act like half the South is here on the board shoving it down your throat.
I don't cheer for SEC teams in bowl games either. Other than one bowl game each year I could care less. And I agree with your data that shows the Big Ten is right up there. And like I said I really don't see that much critism of the Big Ten other than people stating what the computers state. Are those people really that far off? Maybe it is close enough that nobody should be worrying about it. But enough people like to talk about it so I don't see the problem.
