I'm just glad Ohio State was on probation or we would have had either them or ND as national champions today. Certainly wouldn't have been a true representation of the best team in the nation.
    I'd say the top 4-5 in the SEC, and everyone else. There are some bad football teams in the SEC as well.

    The SEC has been good, but Alabama has been the dominant one. With the exception of Alabama, I think the other top tier teams in college can play with the likes of LSU, Florida, and Georgia.

    I never thought ND had a chance in beating Alabama, and as the bowl season wore done it became apparent that the teams that ND beat showed that they weren't up to snuff in their bowl games. With the exception of Stanford (who ND got by because of an awful call) all the teams that ND beat were overrated. Its kinda ironic because the team that I thought could have played with Alabama is Stanford.
    When can the SEC claim the Aggies?

    Depending on your definition, I suppose every conference has bad teams but from top to bottom the SEC leaves all the other conferences in the dust. It's really incredible the run they're on

    Bad teams in every conference. I know one well, Kentucky. They must not be dragging down the SEC much though. They still keep winning championships year after year after year.

    I don't know, after a couple of recruiting years?

    I know as a B1G fan I won't be claiming Maryland or Rutgers any time soon!

    IMO it takes a little time for conference affiliation to take hold. IMO Texas A&M is a Big 12 team transition into a SEC team.

    I'd argue that A&M has been taking advantage of its move to the SEC for several years now

    According to Vegas, six SEC teams would have been favored over ND last night. That doesn't include Vandy, who I think would give them a run also. So basically, according to the experts without bias, ND would have been a middle-of-the-pack team in the SEC. That's what they looked like too. It wasn't just about Saban's preparation; ND was overmatched at almost every position on the field.

    OK.

    But in reality, they played an SEC schedule and the other SEC teams have to play them. That makes them 100% an SEC school now. This might be the silliest realignment argument I've seen yet.

    Aside from his religious priorities, I wonder if he was worried about being good enough to get playing time at UT? The Vols are returning most of their O-line and they have four recruits so far on the line as of now

    By my count Bama has 97 players on the roster..... looks like there is going to be a spate of 12 medical emergencies in Tuscaloosa very shortly... oh the humanity!

    The UA playing careers of Eddie Williams, D.J. Pettway, and Tyler Hayes are over, and for Brent Calloway it will probably take a camel-through-the-eye-of-a-needle scenario for him to return. Wasted scholarships.

    Nick only needs 8 mysterious injuries now.
