I live in SEC Country. I am a fan of Texas and Michigan. I have to sit and listen to SEC supremacists everyday. I hate the SEC. However, I am not so stupid as to not see facts before me. If you want to take the window of the last 5 years, or even the entire BCS era and ask, who is the best conference?, then it is the SEC.
I don't whine and complain that the SEC isn't the best conference in the recent era. I see about 4 SEC teams in the top 10 in recruiting going back at least 5 years. I know that 4 different coaches in the SEC have won titles in the past 15 years and 3 of them in the BCS era.
If you notice I said about 4 SEC teams are in the top 10 in recruiting every year. That means that on average there's at least 1 team from every conference that recruits as well as a SEC champ.
I show that 4 different coaches in the SEC have one championships in the past 15 years. That means, doing a quick look at the other MNC winners there are 7 winners not in the not in the SEC from 5 different conferences that aren't the SEC.
If I had to rank them over the past 10-15 years i'd say: #1 SEC, #2 Big 12, #3 Big 10, #4 PAC-10, #5 ACC, #6 Big East. Every conference has had a team win a BCS Title (if i'm seeing it right Miami won their's while they were in the Big East).
What I can't stand is the SEC bottom feeders. I can't stand the Mississpi State, Ole Miss, Kentucky fans or any other bottom feeder teams fans talking about SEC DOMINANCE.
I watched the BCS title game. I watch Alabama beat Texas 37-21. Alabama tacked on 2 touchdowns in the last two minutes. Texas played with their four year starter, multiple quarterback-of-the-year award winner on the bench. With a freshman, Texas scored 21 points.
I kind of remember the SEC Title game. Alabama beat Florida 32-13. Florida had a three year starter, heisman trophy winning quarterback play the whole game. They scored 13.
Does this prove SEC DOMINANCE?! No, it shows that the #1 team played a really good team to get to the BCS title game to play what most people believe is the #2 team.
If you read all of this, I'm sorry for the length. My team losing coupled with having to listen to the people around me spout ignorance has brought me to a point where I have to vent my thoughts. I chose to vent them on the internet, because as retarded as the internet is, it still has a few iq points on the average SEC fan. Thank you, that is all.
P.S. I posted this in another sports forum I read and thought I'd air it out here also. BECAUSE I'M ANGRY DAMNIT!
