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).
