With the decline of South Carolina, Florida not relevant, and Georgia the class of the East is the Big 12 the toughest conference? I had thought the Sec was deeper then the Big 12 but Tech may be showing different tonight.
They're really about equal. Here's the difference though...Big 12 teams play 9 conference games. And most SEC teams play squat for their 4 non-conference games.
Living in SEC country, the arrogance about the superiority of the SEC is amazing. If the SEC is ever just an average conference someday, nobody in SEC would ever admit it. They're blinded by their own arrogance.
they won 5 NTs in a row, but I doubt they would have won the one where Colt McCoy got hurt. Texas nearly won that game with freaking Garret Gilbert. The ultra conservative Texas OC tried to protect Gilbert for 2.5 quarters before he opened the play book some. Texas started rolling and darn near won it. A turnover saved Bama. Had McCoy played, it would have been a way different game. He was worlds better and had way more experience than Gilbert. So that one should have been a Big 12 NT.
