Clearly, the problem with this debate is you retards cannot come up with a reasonable differentiation of quality in the SEC. What are the top, middle, and bottom teams?
Long-standing problem and a losing battle.
Never ending refrain:
"In the SEC"....(insert adjectives and accolades that apply MOSTLY just to LSU and Bama.)
"If you had to play in the SEC"...(I'd pick Georgia's schedule.)
"The SEC is a gauntlet"...(reality - one year we might play LSU, Florida, Auburn the next year we might play Tennessee, South Carolina and Alabama. But I'm going to pretend in this debate that we play them all - ever year...especially the ranked ones...and never play, Vandy, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Miss. State, Georgia Southern, Savannah State, the Citadel and Western Carolina.
"The SEC is a week in/week out grind" - 2012 schedule, grind SEC style:
Buffalo - bye
Mizzou - meh
Florida International - bye
Vanderbilt - meh
Tennessee - bye
South Carolina - here's the grind
Kentucky - bye
Florida - grind back on
Ole Miss - meh
Auburn - bye
Georgia Southern - bye
Georgia Tech - woo, finish line
Those two weeks on and 8 weeks off must have really took it out of Georgia.
Every conference has top teams that are good. SEC usually has the Top two of their conference be the best in the nation.
But the myth-making of the entire conference and "making it through the conference undefeated is impossible because it's so damn hard." That shite needs to stop from the talking heads. The garbage and middle tier of the SEC shouldn't get a free ride to greatness because they all cash the same checks with SEC written on them.
