Best College Football Conference: ACC vs. SEC
Aight look, I normally would say that the BEST college fooltball conference, without exception, is the SEC. However, with the additions to the ACC of Miami, Virginia Tech, Boston College, etc., the ACC is at least second if not tied for first place.
P.S. There's not question that the ACC dominates in basketball.

what the heck are you talking about? The addition of FSU, Miami, and VA Tech doesn't all of a sudden make the ACC the best football conference. They've got years to prove that, as a conference, they can roll with the big boys of the Big 10, SEC, and Big 12.
and the SEC and Big 10 are tied for best football conference.
The Big 10 are you serious? Really? Ok, I'll grant you that the ACC has to established itself but the Big Ten tied for first? What?
And the Big 12 is just one step up from something like the Big East. The Big 12 only has 3 good football programs Texas, Nebraska, and Texas A&M.
The ACC has FIVE schools in the AP top 25 right now.
Guess what the SEC has 5 teams as well. What does that tell you SEC fans?
Anthony, I am serious, and alot of people would agree. The Big 10 has 4 top 25 teams, 2 of them in the top 6. All of them are ranked on average higher than the ACC teams and are more or less on par with the average SEC team.
Yeah no one gives any love to the Big Ten these days. The dark horse everyone is forgetting this year is Penn State. They won't win the conference, but will make a few nice upsets, considering they'll have one of the best defenses in the nation, and nabbed two top 10 recruits this year to help out that terrible offense. If the offense can even muster a mediocre year, watch out. By the way, SI ranked them 30th to start the season, giving the Big Ten another legit team.
Penn State will do better than last year but, they are no "dark horse" or anything. A One game over 500 season is not a good yr. But i actually do hope for their aging coaches sake they beat at least 1 good team
The Big ten is good, real good. I don't know, Take the top 5 ACC vs the Top 5 Big 10 and lets go from there. I mean NW vs. GT can not be a legitimate scenerio.
ANTHONY you forgot OKlahoma in your discussion about the Big 12. Plus Nebraska does not belong in the "good team" category, not yet at least. I would even put OK St in before NEB. (as far as the past 5 years go).
Ohh I cannot wait for this season to start, this board will light up like a firecracker!
Big 10??? Ok, are we talking historically, or this year. Historically, I would agree that the big 10 has been one of the best three. This year they are REALLY in the middle of the pack, and last year they were probably weaker than the WAC. (I think that stands for womens athletic conference.) Uh, think about what Florida did to Ohio State, but don't forget what USC did to Michigan. It was embarrasing for the Big 10. (which should be called the Mediocre 2. Look at conference vs. conference win loss and you will see SEC is the best. It would be baseless to argue. ACC, FSU? Miami? they're the fourth and fifth best teams in FLORIDA.
