I keep hearing this term thrown around. What is this suppose to mean? The top 6 teams in the SEC would probably beat Notre Dame. The SEC also has 2-3 more very respectable teams this year. How is that top heavy?
What about Oregon and Stanford? Do they not make the Pac 12 top heavy? Or how about Oklahoma and Kansa State in the Big 12 this year? Show me a conference that isn't top heavy by your standards. Let's stop throwing around the term like it somehow discredits the SEC, because it's dumb.
No, I don't think the top 6 beat ND. Top 2 or 3 for sure (Bama, A&M, GA) but not the top 6. I hate ND but I'm also a realist. The SEC looked very average during bowl season. GA struggled vs a putrid Nebraska team that tOSU and Wisky absolutely waxed, USCe got lucky to beat 8-4 Mich (who ND beat), LSU lost to a coach named Dabo and FLA got hammered by freaking Louisville. You always claim to have this daunting SEC schedule yet you only play 2 or 3 big games a year and the top 6 don't all play each other. Plus your OOC schedules suck for the most part.
Yes, most conferences are top heavy. The bottom 6 of the SEC was awful but so was the bottom 6 of most other conferences.
Bama wins championships because they have the best coach in America. However, I agree that playoffs will bring more parity because teams will not have as much time to prepare.
