FTR, I tend to lean towards SEC being the better conference.


By most metrics, I'd say the SEC is the better conference. (Or is it...?) Actually, I might say it's just the optics, as there might be 7 matchups in a 1 vs. 1, 12 vs. 12 where the ACC could win... The Hoos just beat a favored South Carolina team that might have been a good "#5 vs. #5" match-up on a hypothetical SEC/ACC challenge weekend... So, like a team tennis match, we've won at #1, #5, and are just looking for a few more favorable match-ups to win the challenge... I thought this year that NCSU vs. TAMU would have been a favorable one, but alas...

Again, realistically, the SEC usually wins this challenge at least 8-4, if not 9-3, but like basketball, it'd give an added layer of rooting interest on a Saturday afternoon if it was tied at 5-5,with wins by a resurgent FSU over TAMU, NCSU finally beating USC, GT beating one of the Mississippi's, Duke over Vandy, and Wake in an upset at LSU, and the two games left in prime time were Clemson/Alabama, and UVa/(Kentucky/the other Mississippi/Arkansas) to settle the challenge...
