I don't buy that the SEC is superior by far. OU was a pretty close game. Texas was also a close game until McCoy got knocked out. And I don't even know why you posted last year's game. It was 2 SEC schools. Yes, the SEC is the best conference. But they are not far superior to everyone else. Well, far superior to the Big 10. I'll give you that.

Oh.

I don't know if I would call that a goal line stand...

There was still about 2 minutes left in the game on that 4th down play. If AL would have punched it in...it would have left a couple of minutes for A&M to drive the field...hell, if not for the offsides, AL was going to get the ball back again...


If that 4th down play came with 10 seconds left in the game, I would agree with you.

Unless they have a significant number of freshman/sophomores that are contributing to their success this season, then the point is entirely relevant. A&M's team that just beat Alabama is the exact same team that would have been playing in he Big XII this season if not for conference realignment. Everyone needs to face the fact that while the SEC has been the class of college football for the past several years, they aren't as dominant this season. Are they still the best conference? Yes, but they are not head and shoulders above everybody else.

And please save me the whole "Alabama got beat by another SEC team so how does that show weakness in the SEC" crap. Major conferences top teams rarely play against other top teams from other conferences during he regular season.

I would actually agree with you, I don't think the SEC is as strong as previous years.

However, I don't think any of the other conferences are as strong as previous years. Most of the teams in the Big XII literally can't play defense. It's Greg Robinson bad. The Pac 12 has some strong teams but it also has teams like Colorado who are horrifically bad. The Big Ten is a dumpster fire.

I agree Alabama's schedule isn't as hard as it could be in the SEC. At the same time, Kansas State is probably going to the national championship game, and they have pretty much played one really good team, Oklahoma, and even that's questionable. Notre Dame punched them in the mouth. Plus they won't have to play a conference title game.

Yep. Except that aTm is basically a Big 12 team. They surely haven't turned into an SEC team over night. Somebody earlier in this thread mentioned the recruiting boost they got for moving to the SEC. Whether that's true or not, I doubt any of those recruits is making much of an impact this year. Just sayin'.

And I'm not talking trash. I'm just providing some logic in all this SEC hyperbole. MU fans, especially, have pushed this silliness. Again, yes the SEC is the best conference. They are not, however, head and shoulders above the Big 12, IMO. The Big 12 is actually pretty close.

The problem is with the Big XII defenses. Most of the teams in the Big XII are horrible, absolutely horrible at defense. West Virginia has allowed an AVERAGE of 51 pts/game over their last 6 games. Baylor, Texas, Texas Tech... they've all looked terrible on defense. Oklahoma State has had some okay efforts but they also got slaughtered and gave up about 60 points to Arizona in their one decent out of conference game.

If I had a say I'd want to see how some of the Pac 12 teams would look against the SEC. I feel like the middle chunk of the Big XII would be annihilated by good teams in other conferences. K-State is an elite team that is well coached, but aside from that, I don't see what the fuss is about.

I would say that Texas A&M turned into a SEC team when they joined the conference and starting playing an SEC schedule. Their good play strengthens the SEC conference now (just as MU's poor play, for now, hurts it). I've kind of stopped viewing these programs as a reflection of the B12 (and I don't think there's really much of a narrative to take from the combination of A&M's success and MU's struggles).


And I'm not talking trash. I'm just providing some logic in all this SEC hyperbole. MU fans, especially, have pushed this silliness. Again, yes the SEC is the best conference. They are not, however, head and shoulders above the Big 12, IMO. The Big 12 is actually pretty close.
The Big 12 is very good. 2nd best in the nation, I would grant. But the football that's played there on the whole is really nothing compared to the elite level of football played in the SEC. That's not hyperbole. It's just factual (shown in the national championships, the bowls, the cross-conference records) and very obvious (the athletes are just so, so much better).

Mississippi State was top 10 when they played. Michigan was top 10 when they played, too. A&M was top 15. All but Michigan are still ranked, and Michigan lost their QB.

I guess I don't get how an 8 team playoff where no team has more than one loss would water down the regular season. If anything, it might encourage some better early season games. Right now, for contending teams, the only goal is to schedule teams you know can't beat you. Trying to increase strength of schedule and test yourself in the non-con isn't worth the risk of potentially losing a game and ending your season in week 1.

The season is watered down under the current setup because a full third of the season (4 out of 12 games) are glorified scrimmages. 68 basketball teams making the postseason waters down the regular season as well. Football would be well served to meet in the middle, and an 8 team playoff would be nuts.

In the past 10 seasons, the SEC has won 7 of 9 national titles. In one of the two years they didn't win it, Auburn was undefeated but didn't get to play in the title game.

This single-minded obsession with winning the national title has perverted everything else. Nobody cares about conference titles, and that is a shame to me. Take for instance the mood in Tuscaloosa.

Who do you think Notre Dame is going to play that will be better than what Alabama will see in the conference championship game?

Go through the schedule. For every team ND has played, Bama has played a better team.

So far -

Alabama Notre Dame

Michigan Navy
Western Kentucky Purdue
@Arkansas @Michigan State
Florida Atlantic Michigan
Ole Miss Miami
@Missouri Stanford
@Tennessee BYU
Mississippi State @Oklahoma
@LSU Pittsburgh
Texas A&M @Boston College

I'd say that the toughest game for Bama was at LSU. The toughest game for Notre Dame was at Oklahoma. In my mind a wash, but I'll give the edge to Bama for discussion purposes.

If you look at the rest, I don't think you can say with any definitiveness that, game for game, every one of Bama's matchups were tougher than what Notre Dame has faced.

Why? Notre Dame's schedule is stronger than both Oregon's and K-State's and by seasons end will rate stronger than Alabama's. If you want to look at like opponents, compare K-State's game vs. OU against the Irish's. If all three end up undefeated, Notre Dame will have just as strong of an argument as either of the other two.
Well, except for the fact that Notre Dame essentially had two ties this year at home. They won both games in overtime, and nobody can argue that Stanford and Pitt are tough teams. Obviously a win is a win, but if you're going to talk strength of schedule, you should also talk quality of wins.

Oklahoma gets credit because they lost to the number 1 and 3 teams even though their best win (and only win against a ranked opponent) was against the #17 team in the country.

Georgia might not be any good despite their only loss being to the #8 team and having beat the #6 team.

Mississippi State shouldn't have been ranked when they were 7-0 because they have since lost three games to three top 10 teams.

Miss. St. should never have been ranked as high as they were. They had played exactly zero teams of any significance. They have since been blown out in three consecutive games. I know they were all against ranked opponents, but they weren't competitive in any of the three games. They were a fraud.

How high do you think Oregon, K-State, or Notre Dame would be ranked in the BCS if they had a 28 point loss to South Carolina on their record and on top of that only had one win against a ranked opponent? I guarantee it would be nowhere near the top five.

This has never been an argument about what the best conference in college football is. I agree it is the SEC, but the SEC is not "head and shoulders" above every other conference or as you say "in another universe." SEC teams get consistently ranked higher than their résumés suggest because they are members of the SEC. Anyone with a working set of eyeballs can see that the play in the SEC is down this year compared to previous years.

I've already covered the consistent over ranking of SEC teams.

If they played Alabama or Georgia's schedule they would play less ranked teams then they play now. And why would they have to be undefeated? That would make them clearly better than any other team in the SEC, since there aren't any undefeated teams in the SEC.

To the current #5 team at their house? Not much.

UGA, should they win out will have 2 wins against top 5 teams, both on neutral sites. Bama will have 2 as well, one on the road and one neutral.

I've not argued that any conference is better than another. To me, it is an irrelevant discussion when the object is to determine the best team.

Some, however, use the "SEC is the best conference" discussion as the basis for making a case that teams within that conference are playing superior schedules than teams outside. I don't happen to agree.

I don't think this is the SEC's strongest year... but it's like everyone's ignoring the fact that other conferences are down too.

If you look at the Big 12, the 3rd best team lost to the 2nd best team by a zillion points. They were absolutely slaughtered and dominated in all aspects of the game. Wasn't even close. They were lucky to beat Kansas, who is horrible. The 4th best team played one tough out of conference game and got slaughtered by a team who has a losing record in the Pac 12. Then you go down the the line and teams like West Virginia, Tech and Baylor are not that good, and downright horrible defensively.

I just have a hard time believing Georgia, South Carolina, LSU, Florida aren't better than all those teams. And to be honest, I'm not sure Mississippi State and Vandy wouldn't give Texas a game. When you are as terrible at defense as these teams usually you end up with close games.

You've argued that Notre Dame wouldn't be ranked as high as Alabama if they had a loss and had played Bama's schedule. History tells us that Notre Dame gets ranked above what they deserve and SEC teams, if anything, are ranked below what they deserve.

If a team is ranked correctly, they should have bowl records around .500. The SEC consistently outperforms in the postseason.

Anyone who can't honestly say that they believe the SEC is down this season from previous years is either not watching the games or they are flat out lying. I don't care about the past.

You couldn't prove my point more if you tried. The SEC is head and shoulders above other conferences because THIS is what a "down year in the SEC" looks like (MSPaint FTW):

I'm a Notre Dame alum. Am I butthurt by my team being ranked number one in the BCS? I was simply looking for an explanation for Georgia's ranking that makes sense. You obviously have nothing intelligent to say about the subject so just STFU.

Georgia would curbstomp the Irish. Alabama will treat them even worse. Can't wait to see which squad gets to pull trains on the innocent little alter boys from South Bend.

Bitch all you want, the SEC is that good.

Again, what has Georgia done this season for you to think they will "curb stomp" the Irish? I understand that you hate Notre Dame, but I'm actually looking for someone to make a good argument justifying Georgia's ranking.

Notre Dame has the number one scoring defense in college football. They could very well lose to any of the SEC top teams, but they aren't getting "curb stomped" by anybody.

How's their offense? Think they'll move the ball against a defense as good as their own? Think those overrated SEC teams have seen a defense or 3 as good as the Irish?

ND is going to do what they always do when they make the BCS....I think your D is up to it, but your offense is nowhere near.

As for UGA they started the season in the top 10, only lost one game, and should they beat Bama they'd have 2 neutral site wins over current top 4 BCS teams. Pathetic I know. Maybe ranking them 18 or so would be about right...

Why don't you first tell us who should be ranked #3?

In my mind it should still be Oregon. Oregon hasn't played the toughest schedule, but neither has Georgia and Oregon's only loss was a heartbreaker in overtime vs. a very good Stanford team.

If Florida State wins this weekend, I think they should get some consideration for #3.

So Florida State, who has played a weaker schedule than Georgia and lost to an unranked team, should get consideration for beating the same team that Georgia beat?

Also, you can look at Oregon's loss as better than Georgia's loss, but Georgia's win is much better than Oregon's best win which was over a then ranked #17 USC who now has 4 losses.

Your last paragraph assumes Georgia beats Alabama. If they do that, then they will have an argument. As their credentials stand now, they don't.

ND's offense has been improving lately and their redshirt Freshman QB has been playing well.

Alabama's defense is on the same level as the Irish's, but Georgia's is nowhere near that level. They have a great pass rusher, but they surrender a large amount of points too often to be considered elite. If they play ND, the Irish will score points. Maybe not enough to win, but it would be a close game.

A 28 point loss is almost unheard of for an elite team. ND's schedule has been tougher than Georgia's and tell me where would they be ranked if they had a 28 point loss on their record. And for arguments sake let's say that loss was against Stanford.

1. A 28pt loss to South Carolina (who has been top-15 all season and was #6 at the time) is not as bad as losing at home to a terrible NC State team.

2. Your arguing stupid things that don't matter. If Georgia loses to Alabama they're out. If Georgia beats Alabama then their resume is better than any other 1-loss team.

False. When you lose by 28 points to any team it is hard to argue that you are an elite team.
2. Your arguing stupid things that don't matter. If Georgia loses to Alabama they're out. If Georgia beats Alabama then their resume is better than any other 1-loss team.

I already said their resume would be improved. I was asking about their current ranking.

Please answer my question about where you think Notre Dame would be ranked if they had a 28 point loss on their resume.

How so? The Irish shall rape.

In what capacity? What do they have that's better than the top ranked SEC team? Besides their helmets. I'll wait.

It depends upon where the loss occurred. If it was to an unranked team they'd be down Florida St & Clemson around #10. If it was to a top-10 opponent they'd probably be ahead of K-State at #6.
