    I just let the facts speak for themselves. Your attempt at trying to compare the SEC to the Big 10 or any other Conference is laughable! Those other Conferences were NEVER as dominant as the SEC is today! Answer this; In the last 50 years, how many Football NC's has the Big 10 won in a row?

    Franco my premise is that BCS title Games are BS and shouldn't count. Hey I hate the Big 10, they were our arch rivals my whole life, and they do seem to have regressed lately, but I argue that all things change, things go up and things go down, so I wouldn't count any once dominant conference out in perpetuity. I so can't wait for a true playoff system to settle this argument once and for all.

    I too am looking forward to the playoff system, just wish it were the Top 8 teams. The BCS selection was signed off by the schools and is the most comprehensive ranking system the sport has ever had. Unlike the previous systems that lacked comprehensive comparisons such as strength of schedule. But, lets face it, I can't find any back to back championships over the last 50 years by a Big 10 or Pac 10 school. Big bad Michigan 1964 & 97, Ohio St 1968 & 2002, Penn St 1982 & 86, Michigan St 1965. There aren't any two in a row much less anything resembling seven in a row!

    I can't argue with you on that history, I'm just not very impressed by the seven in a row thing.

    I think if you go back a little ways you'll find WI, IA, IL & on occasion Purdue in that mix on a regular basis.

    Marvin, don't bother "real" college football wasn't invented until the advent of the BCS, didn't you know that.
