The scores of the games the SEC played outside the conference do not lie. If Ole Miss is so weak then why haven't any SEC teams put up numbers against them like Texas did? (A&M beat them by 3). No one in the SEC has come close to doing what Texas did. Texas lost to W. Virginia in the Big 12 and was blown out by Oklahoma. They have yet to lose to Kansas State. So many SEC teams are currently ranked so high because of the past, not what they've shown this year. Come on, Florida? Show some objectivity. I'm not saying the SEC isn't as good as the Pac 12 and Big 12. There just is no evidence this year that they are better and lots of game evidence the conference is slipping. It is not as if the lesser SEC teams have been beaten by powers from the other conferences. Those lesser and medium teams have lost to and been played competively by medium and lesser teams from other conferences. W. Kentucky, Monroe, Louisville, Rutgers, Northwestern. I won't blame them for losing to Texas and Clemson. If the top 6 teams in the SEC are really deserving of their high national rankings them they should be clobbering the lesser teams in the conference. Georgia shouldn't struggle with Kentucky. LSU shouldn't slip by Auburn by 2. South Carolina shouldn't struggle with Vandy and have to be helped by the officials at the end. Georgia and S. Carolina should beat Tennessee by more than 7 and 3. Maybe the league will show its stuff this weekend when they beat up on Georgia Southern, Wolford, Jacksonville St., Sam Houston, Alabama A&M, and Western Carolina. What is up with the scheduling of all the patsies late in the season, anyway? Why is the SEC the only conference that does that? Other conferences (not the PAC 12) schedule the weak sisters as training games early, but not into the season. What is the theory down there? This is not about Julio Jones or Tim Tebow. This is about this year. If you have something from this year I'd like to read it. I just hope K-State and Oregon don't both lose so that the SEC can luck out again and play a lucky but overrated Notre Dame. The Irish may have beaten Oklahoma but are clearly just a hollow team waiting to get hammered.I would actually like to see Texas upset K-State and USC beat Notre Dame so Oregon could play Georgia or Alabama. That would make you and me both happy. Instead, the SEC will probably arrange some patsy games with the big 10 and pad those bowl records.
