Well the Pac-12 may not be that great either. Oregon won, but what an ugly game! I really hope Washington plays well against Ohio State, but I'm not holding my breath. It also appears that Utah is going down to Northwestern. Who is worse, Big-10, or Pac-12?

The SEC is far and away the best. Second is a tie between the Big 12 and Big 10. Third is ACC. Last, and far and away the absolute worst, is the Pac 12.

As far as the Big 10 not having the athletes.....wrong, they don't have the quarterbacks with the exception of Ohio State and lesser extent Penn State.

I see this as a down year for the SEC. I think next year will be better since so many teams are very young and are starting a lot of underclassman.

If this is prompted by bowl game records, the only P5 conference with a winning record in bowl games so far this season is the ACC, at 5-4. The other P5 conferences are 3-3. Most of the G5 conferences have a winning record. It's a weird year.

Records in bowl games really isn't a good indicator because a low ranked team in one conference might lose to a highly ranked team from another conference. There are other reasons why this isn't a good measure of conference power. Better, although still flawerd, is the number of teams each confernece has in the top 25.

How is that better? The whole idea is that certain teams are only in the Top 25 because they play in weak conferences.

Take the South Carolina vs Virginia bowl game, for example. The logic is that SC plays in a much more competitive conference than Virginia and would likely be competing for conference titles year in year out if it played the likes of Duke, BC, Syracuse, etc. Yet they couldn't muster a single point against the Cavaliers. A basketball school. How tough can the SEC really be?

No conference, including the vaunted SEC, is good top to bottom. You can’t measure until the season is over.

And Top 25 is just a popularity contest.
