Re: Food for thought - College football
A CONFERENCE having an undefeated team/teams takes nothing away from the conference itself. A bunch of factors come into play. What were the scores of the conference games? What were the scores of non conference games? To me and I've been a sports gambler for 25 plus years bowl games mean absolutely nothing unless it's the National/BCS championship. A conference like the SEC can have several teams that are dominant yet have a 6-4 record because the SEC is so strong. Now a 8-2....8-3 etc record from the SEC or any other conference can have a tendency to "screw the pooth" in a bowl game because it is a let down to play on the 26th of December in a bowl game somewhere 2,000 miles from home.
