Penn St is so slow and white. Same with Washington. Neither have had half the players drafted last decade as LSU.

Every year Kmart pads his ranking with Big 10 teams, only to watch the SEC teams dominate. His affiliation with the Big 10 is evident and makes his Poll laughable. He doesn’t seem to understand, it affects his credibility? He has now become a joke….

I think it’s reasonable but maybe slightly bias which is fine since that’s the area he covers and knows, is confident in. Those teams have proven they are stable programs over the years with exception of maybe Michigan being the least of them besides last year. Anyone from the SEC footprint would probably do the same for the SEC.

Klatt has been very favorable toward SEC and LSU when interviewed on tv.

He does not hate the SEC. When asked, he has said it’s the strongest conference, top to bottom

I thought they were the same, they’ve made a career of puffing up other conferences with moral victories to only whittle away in January when the SEC runs away with the crystal ball

I always just laugh at these polls. If you truly want your top 4 every year, just pick the best 4 teams from the SEC, and then the also ran.

This is why I can’t wait for the expanded playoff format. When the final four are always sec teams that blew out the teams from other conf, these polls will change.
