I’ve been following with interest your fisking of the SEC schedule. You bring up some good points. One of the things the SEC fans often talk about is how hard it is to go through the league undefeated. To that end, I looked at the last 15 seasons to try to figure out which conference had the most undefeated teams in conference play. Here are the results:
PAC 10–4 undefeated teams
Big Ten–7 undefeated teams
SEC–7 undefeated teams
Big 12/Big8/SWC–9 undefeated teams
Big East–8 undefeated teams
ACC–8 undefeated teams
Heismanpundit, it would stand to reason that, according to the data, the Pac-10 is actually the toughest conference to go undefeated in. What say you?
I’d say that the numbers speak for themselves. I will now open up the floor to debate. Can anyone shed light on this subject?
