Odd title, I know, but it is rooted in a question I had. If a bunch of teams inside one conference all beat-up on each other does that really mean that the conference is weak? Or does it mean that the conference is so strong that they can't even get past each other?
For example. So far, Alabama is that one team that is clearly better than everyone else in the SEC. Now Florida, LSU, South Carolina, Georgia, and Miss State have all lost to each other but are clearly better than the rest of the conference.
Another example. The Big East. When Louisville beats Cinci who beats Rutgers who beat Louisville (last season) does that mean that Big East sucks, or that it is so strong that they can't even get past each other?
Dumb question, I know, but things like this come to me in the middle of the night when I can't sleep.
