Didn't see this posted, but thepostgame.com (never really heard of it) put up this article that attempts to explain the SEC's somewhat mythical dominance of CFB. Some highlights:
Witness the record since the start of the BCS era in 1998:
SEC vs. PAC-12 regular season: 10-12 SEC vs. PAC-12 bowl games: 1-0
SEC vs. Big 12 regular season: 6-10 SEC vs. Big 12 bowl games: 21-8
SEC vs. ACC regular season: 42-36 SEC vs. ACC bowl games: 16-9
SEC vs. Big 10 regular season: 7-4 SEC vs. Big 10 bowl games: 19-19
SEC vs. Big East regular season: 16-15 SEC vs. Big East bowl game: 3-8
3-8 vs Big East? Is that real?
Despite being approximately equal to other conferences in most quantifiable categories, the SEC and other southern schools are unfairly presented with championship opportunities and favors on what is far from a level playing field.
The SEC is better than other conferences at media manipulation and pretending that fiction is fact and fact is fiction. But as a top-to-bottom conference it is not better at football. The numbers bear that out.
Not much new here that hasn't already been said on these boards, but it's nice to see that the media is starting to recognize that the SEC is much over-hyped. I don't think there's any question that the SEC hasn't been the best football conference for a few years now, but the gap isn't nearly as big as the Worldwide Leader would like you to believe.
