    Re: Are other conferences/teams close to being good as SEC/Bama?

    Only in their dreams. ND had a great year, but they didn't face SEC teams. ND is one of the top Independent football teams... THEN there's the Pitch and catch conferences which are always better than the SEC till they play somebody.

    Re: Are other conferences/teams close to being good as SEC/Bama?

    I think that Stanford is the closest thing the west coast has to an SEC team. They are big, physical, quick, and play pretty agressive defense. They also like to run between the tackles.

    I really don't think that any conference tops the SEC. The closest conference is probably the PAC 10 or 12, whatever they are called. I think they have SEC speed all over the field. If Texas A&M stays in the Big 12, they possibly win it (would beat Bevo, Kansas St., and will beat OU).

    The B1G: Major Annoyance
    Auburn, LSU, Tenn: Major Annoyance times 1012...

    Huge difference...

    As for the lack of championships over the last decade or so - that is a part of the ebb and flow of this game. The SEC is on top right now, but that will change.



    Don't bet on it. It all boils down to athletes and there are more of them per capita in the South than in any other area of the country. Don't believe it, check the rosters and recruiting lists of other teams outside the South and you'll see. The B1G in particular recruits heavily in the South, not so much the reverse. You can bank on it that Urban Meyer will be very heavily recruiting Florida, he has seen the speed and talent down there up close and he knows he will need to get some of it to get to where he wants to be.

    Nobody can match the coaching of the SEC? Are you kidding. Every coach in America except the guy at Georgia would have spiked the ball at the 15 sec. mark at the end of the Alabama game. Biggest choke I have ever seen. And Les Miles at LSU??
    Everyone, even you guys talk about how bad he is.

    You could certainly add Derek Dooley, Joker Phillips, and John L Smith to the list of questionable coaches.

    One thing about the SEC though, you either produce, or you're out. Les Miles and Mark Richt were both on the hot seat as recently as last year.

    I agree. It seems that since 2006, B1G teams have gotten a lot faster. The bowl games aren't the blowouts that they use to be.

    Regular season games sure are though.
