I do think the SEC is maybe a tad overhyped. We are the best conference in the nation, but the way it works (now) is: Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Kentucky, Tennessee, Auburn, and Vanderbilt could easily beat the worst teams in any other conference and go toe-to-toe with any mid-level team in another conference. South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida could easily beat the mid-level teams in any other conference and could probably hang with the upper level teams (they may not win, but it would be close). Arkansas would demolish the lower/mid-level teams in any other conference and would likely beat the best teams in other conferences. LSU would destroy the best teams in the other conferences. Alabama would beat LSU 9 out of 10 times.
