Plus it ain't december yet.
Oh please. The faulty BCS has nothing to do with the SECs dominance. I don't see any other team, especially in the Big 12, that can beat them, with the exception of Arkansas.

Who said they're overrated, they need a reality check. They are easily the second best team in the country. And if Auburn doesn't answer Trent Richardson, it'll be a blowout.

I won't doubt the strength of the SEC toppers. But Bama had some trouble against an 1-AA team there for a while.

The fact is NO one knows the answer to these questions. It's all SPECULATIVE. Everyone knows the true way to settle these arguments.

They didn't struggle, they paced themselves and got an easy W. Afterall, a W is still a W. No one is doubting LSU because they barely beat Bama. Now Stanfords win against USC should be put against them, as well as Oregons.

SEC is definately the best at one thing...making excuses. Alabama, Florida, South Carolina, Auburn all were unimpressive against FCS teams, and Georgia had plenty of trouble with Kentucky, who may as well be an FCS team. The question is what is the SEC doing by playing a bunch of 1-AA teams at this point in the season, right in the middle of conference play? SEC may have the strongest teams, but the strength of schedule argument goes out the window when you schedule a de facto bye week every 3 weeks.

Alabama and Auburn are simply not very impressive this year, but of course last year, they were impressive enough to...beat Oregon in the national championship game. Just like Alabama was impressive enough to beat Texas in the national championship game the year before. And Florida was impressive enough to beat OU the year before that. And LSU was impressive enough to beat Ohio St. the year before that. And Florida was impressive enough to beat Ohio St. the year before that second drubbing at the hands of LSU. A down year in 2005, maybe, but an Auburn team went undefeated without a chance to prove their true strength against USC thanks to an overrated OU team at a time when many were doubting the strength of the SEC. Doubters are few these days, though. Winning five titles in a row tends to silence doubters.

Please. It's not like the teams are loading their schedules with those 1-AA teams. They need a break from beating up on each other. When you have a murderer's row schedule, you need a scrimmage game.

SEC making excuses...lol. The SEC doesn't make excuses; they go out and win the biggest game year after year. When another school scores an upset against an SEC team in the BCS title game, then we should rethink the rankings of the SEC teams. But that hasn't happened yet...probably won't happen this year either. Always next year, or next decade maybe. lol!

Oh, we SEC fans know the answer already.

For the 500th time, the game was never in doubt.

The Big 10, Big 12, PAC 12, ACC, MWC, etc do not take breaks from beating up on each other to schedule scrimmage games.

45-21 over an FCS school is unimpressive, especially for a #2 team.

Whatever, if the score was 45-7, people like you would still cry and moan. I wonder if you so call fans actually watch or attend games, or just look at the score and assume what happened.
