For saving the Big 12 from being the most overrated conference.

The Big 10 (2-5 in bowls) was outclassed in all seven games.  In the two they won Wisconsin was out-gained almost 2-1 in yardage, but they squeaked by a superior Arkansas team.  Penn State won the turnover battle 3 - 0 or they would have lost to Tennessee.

I'm not an SEC fan myself, but they are the official rulers of 2006 NCAA football.  (Surely we have a gator fan out there!)  Congrats!

Can anyone say PLAY-OFF?   :D

btw. love the lights Jeff.  Can you help me persuade my daughter to go to TCU??
Funny... I have a story about that...

The Big East did okay, as I noted in an earlier post.  However, they beat East Carolina, Kansas State, Georgia Tech, Western Michigan and Wake Forest.  Wake was the only ranked team, and not a very goo done at that.  They deserved some better games, but give them a tougher schedule and they are not one of the top conferences.  

WAC... Boise State won an entertaining game, but put that trickery against Florida and it is Ohio State all over again.  The others have nothing to brag about beating 6-7 New Mexico, 7-6 Arizona State and losing to 7-6 Miami.

Mountain West beat no ranked teams and lost to an average SDSU squad.

SEC--class of them all this year.

Big East 5-0 gets ranked 2nd by default but put  those five teams in any other major conference and they are not better than the Big 10, Big 12, ACC or PAC-10.
Funny... I have a story about that...
