Next time another conference gets a chance to play for the championship, let me know.

In general it is all well deserved, but my point was that individual commentators can take it to the point of hyperbole.

For example, when there is an obvious crapfest between two lower tier SEC teams and it is hailed as a "classic hard-nosed slobberknocker."

There is no doubt about the lovefest between the SEC and ESPN. ESPN will go on for hours about how it is the SEC and then all the rest. I have no problem with them talking about the SEC. They are the best conference as of now. But I do have a problem when they slap down the other conferences while doing so.
