Thoughts from my sports buddy Jason Black.
Interesting comparison. The prevailing thinking this time of year to me is not so much LSU as it is SEC vs the world. Miami enjoyed powerful programs in their state to build on-field rep, but did not have the conference challenges that LSU, etc all face today. It’s unfortunate the Big 12 (and some other conferences) is changing so greatly, and it will take some time for that to bounced back. Thus it is clear now that the SEC is top to bottom difficult to challenge nationally and will be for the next decade.
