SEC has an over 20 game lead head-to-head against the Big Ten. 'nuff said.
Why is "top to bottom" nonsense? A conference is better if all of the games are good. Blowouts suck, it's better when more teams are competitive.
In bowl games they're tied. And MY team kicks the crap out of the SEC, so I could care less. 25-5-1 (or something close to that).
Gunny, nice contribution.

Because nobody cares about above average teams. In any sort of comparison, people compare BEST vs BEST. You wouldn't take 8 chevy malibus and 2 corvettes over 5 porsches and 5 escorts. But for some reason, college football goes against all logic when arguing bests.
This is pointless when arguing with a bunch of Bama, UT, etc fans, I know. But there's a big reason why the SEC can't field as many NFL players as other conferences, and it's because they're less talented.
Again, you just say something you wish is true, instead of what is actually true.
The fact is there are more former SEC players in the NFL than any other conference.
The Big 10 was third, and the mighty Pac 10 fourth.
Maybe we should call it the Cupcake 10.
Gloat got served! As far as bowl games all time, of the top 20 in all time bowl victorys, the Big 10 has 2 teams, one of which, PSU is a more recent member. SEC? 7 teams in the top 20. In fact, if you count former member GA. Tech, it would be 8.
Just not as many STARTERS. I'm sure they have tons of backups and kickers in there to balance things out though.
