robbyb03 Posted November 21, 2010 Share Posted November 21, 2010 As I look at the rankings every week I can't help but wonder if there is an anti-SEC bias. The SEC has won the last four BCS title games and won six of the twelve BCS title games ever. This doesn't even take into account that the SEC has never lost a BCS title game and are 14-5 combined in all BCS games. There is not a single other conference that even comes close to matching the dominance of the SEC in the BCS era. As an Oklahoma fan, I am looking at this as a neutral eye when it comes to SEC football, but lets take a look at this year's rankings...Oregon's Wins:New Mexico(1-10), @ Tennessee(5-6), Portland State(2-9), @ Arizona State(4-6), #6 Stanford(10-1), @ Washington State(2-9), UCLA(4-6), USC(7-4), Washington(4-6), @ California(5-6)Combined Opponents' Record= 46-61Auburn's Wins:Arkansas State(4-7), @ #25 Mississippi State(7-4), Clemson(6-5), #18 South Carolina(8-3), Louisiana-Monroe(5-6), @ Kentucky(6-5), #12 Arkansas(9-2), #5 LSU(10-1), @ Ole Miss(4-7), Chattanooga(6-5), Georgia(5-6)Combined Opponents' Record= 71-51LSU's Wins (lost @ #2 Auburn):UNC(6-5), @ Vanderbilt(2-9), #25 Mississippi State(7-4), West Virginia(7-3), Tennessee(5-6), @ Florida(7-4), McNeese State(6-5), #11 Alabama(9-2), Louisiana-Monroe(5-6), Ole Miss(4-7)Combined Opponents' Record= 70-51I think the voters are tired of having to recognize that the best football in the entire country is played in the SEC and are not going to credit a SEC team with the respect and position in the polls that a team like Auburn has earned this season.
