Yes, the SEC has three really good teams, but after UF, Alabama and LSU, everyone sucks. The Big 12 is legitimately terrible this year (I think Texas will get destroyed in the title game). The Big 10 has been awful for years. The Big East and ACC are always jokes except for VT occasionally. When it comes down to it, the Pac-10 is the country's most exciting, most balanced conference this season.
Not to hi-jack this thread, but let me point out: Boise State 19, Oregon, the presumptive Pac 10 champ, 8.
I don't think that anyone can really lay claim to second best this year. There's the SEC (I don't think everyone else sucks... Tennessee is better than most people thought they would be, Arkansas is alright but not amazing by any stretch of the imagination) and then there's the Big 10, Pac-10, Big 12 and then there's the (blatant MWC troll coming...) MWC, Big 10 and the ACC.
I think it is quite possible that USC has been the most overrated team for most of the season. They managed to make Notre Dame look like they were a competitor. I think the Pac 10 is good, but I just think there's too much parity across college football to claim they are superior to the other conferences around them.
