Things are heating up at the Big Ten Media Days. This morning, Nebraska football head coach Bo Pelini decided to take a shot outside the conference by saying lots of SEC teams would like to be Nebraska.
Bo Pelini: “The whole SEC isn’t Alabama. There are a lot of teams in the SEC that would like to be Nebraska.”

Is he right? We think so, even though many SEC supporters will hate the comment. There’s no doubt the boys down south have been the nation’s best, absolutely dominating the past decade. But look at the bottom feeder SEC teams like Kentucky which only won two games last season or Mississippi State which gets beat down year after year.
Plenty of SEC programs are far, far inferior to Nebraska’s, and wouldn’t be good even if moved to the Big Ten. Props to Pelini for not backing down to the big bad SEC.
