College football is a bit different than most sports in that fans are as rabid in their support of their conference as they are in their chosen school. Each and every year, the debate rages about which conference has the best talent in the sport, and in recent years, it’s hard to argue that the SEC rules the roost. Put it this way, there are very few teams that can take 2 losses on a season and still be considered a genuine National Championship candidate. SEC teams generally have the luxury of being able to take a loss or two, simply because they have the toughest road to travel in College Football betting odds.

While there is a lot of talk about an SEC bias, you simply cannot argue with the numbers when it comes to rating the best conference in football. If you took the top 5 teams from each of the major conferences and compared their performances over the past 5 years, you would see that the SEC has been the most dominant. The Big-12 and the PAC-12 fall in behind, but they are still a good ways off the pace being set by the SEC, especially in the West, which is arguably the toughest division in all of college football.

Every year after recruiting season is over, each school is given a grade that rates how well they did in the acquiring new talent. There are plenty of 4- and 5-star recruits who may not have panned out, so it really only after the fact that you can get a real sense of how well each team and conference actually did. Once again, if you go back over the past 5 seasons, it is again the SEC that has far and away see the most success with their recruits. This is often a case of perception being the reality when colleges go after recruits. If kids believes, as everyone else does, that a particular conference is more dominant than the rest, would it not make sense for them to go there instead of another?

Is The SEC Still The Top Conference For Stars

There is some talk that the SEC is on the decline, as they have not won a National Championship for a couple of years now, but the big name SEC schools are always in the mix. I really don’t see this changing for many years to come, which is why I once again expect the SEC to be the dominant conference in 2015.
