The SEC means tailgating on a grand scale, fast running backs and big linemen. The Pac-10 means skilled quarterbacks, innovative coaches and long trips.
Defeat doesn't finish a man - quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits. - Richard Nixon
That was actually a pretty good article to read. Interesting take on someone who seems to know the lay of the land in college football so well.
He made some good points and some huge mistakes. If he thinks left coast QB's are better he needs to check NFL rosters today not 20 years ago.
Pretty good article.
For QBs, I think the west coast has traditionally been a little more well known for them than the SE. Since 1995 the Pac-10 has had 30 quarterbacks drafted...the SEC has had 26, which isn't that far behind (although the Pac 10 only has 10 teams, so it's 3 per team for the Pac 10 and 2.1 for the SEC, so really the gap is larger per-capita).
However, as noted, the SEC has has done better recently having had 19 drafted since 2001 compared to 18 for the Pac 10 (although, again, per capita, it's 1.8 per team for the Pac 10 and 1.58 for the SEC).
What PAC 10 fans should know about the SEC:
Auburn doesn't think it's better then you, we know so. That can be attributed to the fact we have beaten a million ranked teams this year and you haven't. So if we look logically at the situation, performance, and how good the opponents were, it's not even close. I am sure Tennessee was good when you scheduled them, maybe even ranked. This year however, they were the second worst SEC team out there and by some mystical god got a bowl bid. I give you credit for trying but no points there.
