You've got a point but we are talking about THIS year, any other year I would probaly agree with you but not this year, yes LSU and Georgia may be powerhouses but they're not 'powerhouses' this year, Texas, Texas Tech and Oklahoma are equally just as good this year as any other SEC and I think for a few more to come.

Wait a minute. Are you calling out the Big XII for playing weak teams outside their conference?

You are a SEC fan and calling out other conferences for playing a weak OOC schedule?

Pot. Kettle. Black.

As to OOC, why don't we trot out the strength of schedule...

Solecismic Software: Home of Front Office Football

Best teams now? Big 12 has it this year. SEC has been looking increasingly weaker overall, though the powerhouse teams generally don't fade too badly. And you gotsta love Florida (go, Tebow!).

I use CBS Sportsline for Strength of Schedule and they have Texas as the #1 toughest Schedule.

I know Im just saying I think the Strength of schedule changes every week, due to teams climbing or falling in the polls.

Strength of schedule really can't be seen until after the regular season, just look at Clemson or Vandy, Ouch!! I hate when people bring up SOS and they say "we beat blah blah blah top ten teams" It doesnt matter where they are ranked when you play them dummy, it is where they end up. (USC and SEC fans)

It looks like OU will have played 5 or 6 (depends if we make CCG) ranked teams, maybe more if Cincinatti wins out. Go TCU!!

I'm pretty sure no team from the SEC can say that.
I know Florida can't. And I think they have the toughest schedule in the SEC.
