Is the SEC the best conference in college football? The Big Ten was 7-1 in bowl games this bowl season, yet the SEC still had two teams in the college football playoff and those two teams played each other for the championship. Is the SEC really is just that good or did the Big Ten got left out?

The SEC has been deemed the "big boys" conference of college football. This has happened only because in the past and the beginning of football, many NFL players were born and raised down south. It just so happened to push this conference to be bigger and better. In the 80's many graduates from SEC schools and current players dominated the bowl games like the Rose, and Cotton bowls. This just sealed the south as a powerhouse. Now the Big10 has started to push back and try to take a bigger role in football. The colleges like Alabama and Ohio State consistently push their athletes to compete for a national championship. They have to cause if the sport would die. IT will take more time but eventually it will mellow out and the best schools in the nation will change.

I understand that the SEC started as the conference to beat. The problem I have is that, even today, everyone acts like the SEC is unbeatable and no other conference can compete. Just look at the numbers of this last bowl season. The Big Ten killed every conference overall. Yes, the SEC had two teams playing for a National Championship, but I also feel that the playoff comity is a little bias. Georgia and Alabama were great teams this year and Alabama has had a great team for years, but is every team in every conference really getting a fare chance? The Big Ten didn't even have a team in the playoff this year.
