The SEC is not the best conference. The SEC is so overrated. It's a nice mix this year between the Pac 10, Big East and SEC. It's got me watching.
No. I am a Big East fan, but please don't compare the Big East to the Sec. On any one day there are teams that can compete (rutgers, wvu, usf, lou, cincy) with the middle of the pack of the sec (auburn, ark, alabama, tenn, usc), but these teams have nothing on florida or lsu.
As far as the pac-10 it is still USC, Cal and maybe Oregon and that is it. UCLA, Washington, and Oregon State have all been destroyed already and Cal even struggled with Colorado State.
