Is the SEC is over rated?

SEC (2)

NOTE: On NNR Samantha Bunten of NBC Sports and I discussed the news of the day and previewed the Browns/Jets game.

For years the SEC has been riding on the coattails of the University of Alabama. But if you haven’t noticed the SEC has failed to win the last two national championships. In fact the lowly ACC and Big 10 (sorry that the colleges can’t count) have won the titles recently.

Going into the 2015 season the SEC had 7 teams in the AP top 25. How much of those rankings are based on talent vs. reputation? My answer is a lot on reputation and a little on talent. The Coaches Poll is not votes of the coaches at all. The people usually voting are from the communications department of most schools. The problem is that once a team is ranked it is easier to stay there.

But so far some of the teams have been struggling playing the Sisters of the Perpetually Miserable. But because the teams are part of the SEC, they tend to stay in the top 25. Other conferences that lose tend to fall out of the ranking. Maybe the voters will pay more attention next year. No, they won’t.

That is what I think. Tell us what you think by commenting here or tweeting me @NNRonDSN.
