It’s always funny. Every year, it never fails.
Before the college football season, a few weeks in, a month or two, whenever … at some point, invariably, the talk will start to bubble to the surface about which conference is best, and how things are changing in the power structure on a national scope and blah, blah, blah.

Yes, the Pac-12 is potent, thanks to Oregon’s explosiveness and Southern Cal’s brand-name quality, and Oregon State is a stunning story so far – two games in. The ACC is awesome, if only for its ever-expanding and remarkable propensity to pilfer quality entities from the Big East.
But, people, c’mon, when we’re talking fall Saturdays and what circuit offers the highest level of competition, skill and ready-for-primetime performance, there is no doubt that the SEC does. Has for decades and will continue to do so.
