Until the SEC beats a quality team on the road (or even at home), we won't know how good those defenses are.

Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.
I'm not saying that UofL should be top five or anything like that. They blew their chance on that one. I'm just saying they don't get respect because they're not a traditional power.
If your team had to play an SEC schedule, they'd make their nonconference fairly easy too.
When all is said and done more is said than done.
We'll just have to see what happens. If things work out the way they should, UofL should get the Big East's BCS bid. We'll see how they fare in that situation.
I agree that it is difficult for "unheralded" teams to gain respect in college football. There's really no question about that, and it's one of my largest criticisms of the game. But I don't agree that Louisville is necessarily being overlooked. They're a good--but not great--team.
We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.
