It all started last night in the chatroom, let's open it up for all to have a say so in this.
Which conference, from top to bottom, is the toughest/best conference of them all?

Here are the teams representing each conference:
ACC- Miami ; Florida State ; Virginia ; Virginia Tech ; Maryland ; Clemson ; Wake Forest ; NC State ; North Carolina ; Duke ; Georgia Tech
SEC - Tennessee ; LSU ; Georgia ; Florida ; Arkansas ; Auburn; Alabama ; Mississippi ; Mississippi State ; Vanderbilt ; Kentucky ; South Carolina
Big XIII - Oklahoma ; Nebraska ; Kansas State ; Missouri ; Texas ; Texas A&M ; Oklahoma State ; Colorado ; Kansas ; Texas Tech ; Iowa State ; Baylor
Big 10 - Ohio State ; Michigan ; Iowa ; Wisconsin ; Minnesota ; Purdue ; Penn State ; Michigan State ; Indiana ; Illinois ; Northwestern
Top to bottom, which conference is the best?

I just can't choose between the ACC/SEC/BIG 12
The ACC is bringing Miami, Florida State, Virginia Tech, and Georgia Tech. To me, the ACC is strongest at the top. In any given year I don't want to play Miami, Florida State, or Virginia Tech. The bottom part of the conference is EXTREMELY weak however.
The SEC brings a ton of solid teams, but year in and year out they have been horribly inconsistent (save Florida). LSU is up right now, but are they really a perennial contender? Tennessee, Georgia, Auburn, Alabama, even Arkansas... any given year they can make a good run. They lack the strength at the top of the conference.. but top to bottom it's a very solid conference every year.
The Big 12 is solid at the top with Oklahoma and Texas. Nebraska has been great in recent memory. In the middle K-State, Missouri, Oklahoma State, and Colorado are always pretty good. However, Kansas, Tech, Iowa State, and Baylor are generally horrible teams.
So top-to-bottom the SEC is probably the best conference.
At the top the ACC is really good.
In any given year the top 5 big 12 teams are generally better than the top 5 in any conference...

From top to bottem this year it has to be the SEC. The Big 12 has some pretty bad teams at the bottem. :)

SEC- 5 top 20 ranked teams, 3 of them in the top 10. Yes Vandy and Kentucky suck, but it's just a too tough of a conference.

SEC is best overall. They are also the most fun to watch in person. I have been to games at all of the schools except Arkansas and Vanderbilt. Great well informed fans who have a good time at all of the games regardless of how good they happen to be that year. If you ever get a chance go to some games down there.

You mean OU? As Nebraska days are over and Texas and KSU usually play 2nd fiddle to OU.
