It will only weaken once these guys have won some out of conference games against other p5 teams. That should happen this year but we will see. Dave Doreen's teams always falter when they get any momentum or attention. See last year as they lost to Wake when they had the chance to clinch the division. I expect the same from them this year. We'll see about Miami and Wake.
Meanwhile SEC will have like 10-12 in there and therefore when they beat each other it just looks that much better. When the reality is for the last 10 years it is routinely alabama and one other team that happens to be good. And that one other team seems to change every year. It has been auburn, it has been lsu, it has been georgia, it's not been south carolina, ever.
