Prior to the start of the current Bowl Season I would have said the SEC was the strongest conference in the nation. Even if they do not eventually end up with the number one team in the nation I reasoned at the time that they were still "top to bottom" the best conference in the nation.
But things change. The SEC has yet to win a bowl game and after their number two team South Carolina got shellacked by FSU I am now having to reassess my opinion. Even if the SEC wins all of its remaining games (starting with today's games) I would have to rate this season's conference below the ACC.
Since I work for ESPN and recently wrote that the Mountain West Conference was superior to the ACC based on Air Force's win over Tech I am now compelled to go one step further and state that the MWC is also better than the SEC given the logic of my position. If anyone cares to dispute the facts please go to the ESPN blog site and address your concerns to my pseudonym Heather Dinich. Thank you.
