Except it's not the same concept at all.  Miss St and Alabama didn't lose to Indiana, Missouri did.  We, on the other hand, did lose to Va Tech.

As FunZone mentioned, common opponents is one criteria.  However, they are not supposed to factor in margin of victory.  But, they are also human and certainly will factor that in.

I think that is a very good list.  I might reorder a few but overall very good.  So by your own admission, the SEC West has 2 of the top 5 and 4 of the top 10 best wins.  No other conference, let alone division, has 4 of your top 10 wins.

Comment 24 Oct 2014

That's nice and all but it still didn't answer my question.  I was being sincere.  If you could please let me know what you honestly think are the 10 best OOC wins, it would help me.

I don't believe the SEC West has 4 of the top 5 teams and I do believe the media, mostly ESPN, has an SEC bias.  I also believe their scheduling is suspect most of the time.  But to claim the teams are only ranked high because they beat each other I think is incorrect.  The division does have some legit non-conference wins.

Comment 24 Oct 2014

You are obviously correct that Ole Miss and Miss St did not beat those OOC teams I listed, but Miss St did beat Auburn and LSU, which have two of those wins and Ole Miss beat Alabama, which has the other.  Downgrade them all you want, they are still some of the best non-conference wins so far this season.

Comment 24 Oct 2014

You claim the SEC West doesn't play anybody then point out that the teams have wins against Kansas St. (@ KSU), West Virginia, and Wisconsin (and Boise St., which gave that game away).  The only non-conference wins better than those are Oregon over MSU, FSU over Notre Dame, and Va Tech (somehow) over OSU.  So one division has 3/4 marque non-conference wins and the rest of college football has 3.  I think you're off on your point.

Also, as others have pointed out, you can get a pretty good idea of how good the teams are by watching them play.

I was at a bar so i couldn't hear the commentary, but did they call it a fumble on Elliott or just that he was down before he rolled over the guy's back?  Because he most certainly was down before he went over the guy's back.  His entire left forearm and elbow were on the ground.  And by looking at the play-by-play, it looks like they called him down.

Until an undefeated team from a power conference gets left out of the playoffs for 4 other teams with a loss, I just don't see the benefit of scheduling tough OOC games.  It's more important to win all your games than it is to have a tough schedule.  Only if you lose a game will SoS matter, so why increase the chances of losing a game or two?

SEC went 7-3 in bowl games last year including 3-0 against the B1G.  You say their top teams are very good but they actually went 0-2 in BCS games.  So the middle of the SEC went 7-1.  Also, with two teams in BCS games, it pushes each subsequent SEC team into a higher bowl.

aTm was able to come in and compete because they've had 4 first round draft picks in the past two years including 3 top 10 picks.  Mizzou though, i can't really explain.

So you may not like it, and it may get hyped up a little too much, but it's not a myth that the SEC is the best football conference.

Who are the employers? The argument is the athletes should be compensated for their likeness.  If ESPN was to use their likeness, ESPN isn't all of sudden their employer.  I think you are mixing issues.
