Don't misunderstand me. I'm not saying that the SEC sucks like some moronic posters on here. All I'm saying is that they aren't as dominant as they have been in previous seasons. Their rankings in the polls are enhanced by the past success of the conference.
It's not just pollsters, though. Sagarin has six SEC teams in the top 11 of his NCAAFB statistical rankings (2 B12, 2 P12, 1 ND). They're damn good.

There appear to be a few more bad teams in the SEC than usual, but at the top, their football teams are as good as anybody.
