    I'm about 99% sure that quote is fake.

    We were in the BCS CG that year, so there was no reason for Nicky to comment on Oklahoma.
    Pete Carroll may have said something similar, but I don't remember Saban going that route.

    I was just looking at the Sagarin rankings and was surprised to see who it says the clear cut number one conference is:

    (central mean / simple average)
    1) B12 - 84.89/84.01
    2) SEC - 80.21/80.87
    3) P12 - 75.80/76.42
    4) B10 - 75.66/75.05
    5) ACC - 72.18/72.00

    3-4 points is a pretty big spread in these rankings.

    Using the "predictor", rankings by team are:
    SEC....B12
    ..1.......3
    ..2.......4
    .13......11
    .15......12
    .19......14
    .33......23
    .35......24
    .38......48
    .54......60
    .63......109
    .94
    115

    If you tossed out the top and the bottom (or the middle two) SEC teams and matched up the rest 1-10, Sagarin rankings say B12 would win 8 out of 10 on a neutral field.

    Read it as SEC/Big 10 matchups, not SEC/Big 12....but those would be

    LSU vs Oklahoma St
    Bama vs Oklahoma
    Arkansas vs Kansas St
    Georgia vs Baylor
    South Carolina vs Missouri
    Auburn vs Texas
    Florida vs Texas A&M
    Vandy vs Iowa St
    Miss St vs Texas Tech
    Kentucky vs Kansas

    Even on a neutral field, the SEC is head and shoulders ahead of the Big 12

    That Georgia v Baylor game could go either way imo. That would be one hell of a game

    Agreed.

    I'm not convinced that TA&M would bear Florida - as bad as they are - either.

    The Aggies would find a way to choke it away. It's who they are.

    When comparing a 12-team league to a 10-team league, it's convenient that Tennessee and Ole Miss don't have to play anybody.

    I think Vandy might get Iowa state in that matchup. They are much improved this year.
