[QUOTE=RubberRhib888;117422]The Ducks are a good team and they continue to make impressive strides towards becoming even better. However, you cannot fuck with the SEC…look at the titles. Read em and weep. It is what it is. As soon as the BCS is dismantled and a playoff system is installed things will get intetesting. Good teams like the Ducks need to play better more seasoned teams in order to become better themselves.[/QUOTE]
Agreed that playing better teams will always make a team better. But you can’t argue that the SEC doesn’t benefit from a large amount of bias. If both OR and Alabama had one loss, and say OR defeats a 5th ranked USC in the Pac-12 championship, and Alabama defeats a 22nd ranked SEC team, they will choose Alabama to go to the big game every time. It’s hard to play good out of conference teams when they keep canceling games (like Georgia recently did). I think this is the season where the SEC streak will broken.
