    The SEC is a joke!

    I can't believe people still think the SEC is the top conference in college football!

    Check out the Big 12!

    Kansas 10-0
    Missouri 8-1
    Oklahoma 8-1
    Texas 8-2

    now check out the SEC,

    LSU 8-1
    Georgia 7-2
    Florida 6-3
    Tennesse 6-3

    The SEC is great because... uh, they beat each other. And lose to each other.
    Reacting is mind candy; it requires no thought. Thinking is tedious.

    What's SEC? Something about a bunch of guys chasing after a ball? That's the extent of my knowledge of the "big three" sports.

    Oh. I thought you meant the Securities Exchange Commission. They're a joke too.

    The SEC is a tough conference, but isn't as tough as their fans think it is.

    If its so tough, how can a team like South Florida (Big East), who's only been playing football for 10 years go in to Auburn and win, the same Auburn that went to Florida and won, and the same Florida that went to LSU and won (all SEC). Miss State who also beat Auburn and Kentucky (all SEC), got trounced by West Virginia (Big East).

    And its a bigger conference with 12 teams, and to compare the number of ranked teams they have to a conference like the Big East (like a lot of fans do) is hardly a fair comparison. The ACC, on the other hand, is a joke.

    Hey, they still believe they won the Civil War down there, they can believe they have the best football in the country.

    Maybe cause out of 12 schools in the SEC, only 1, has a losing record and that is Missisippi. 9 of the 12 have lost 3 games or less. 7 of the 12 schools in the Big 12 have lost 4 games or more.

    Next....

    Somebody remind me what Florida did to Ohio State.
