So, who do y’all think is the worst conference academically?
I mean it’s gotta be between Big 12 and SEC there’s no question. SEC has one great school (Vanderbilt) three good schools (Florida Georgia A&M) and the rest average/bad, while the B12 has one great school (Texas) two good schools (Baylor TCU) while the rest are average/bad. However the SEC’s top is a bit heavier than big 12s, do they take the cake as the worst simply because there’s so many bad schools?

Whatever conference you're from. This is the recruiting board, you dolt.

Big 12 no question.

AAU schools:

SEC - 4
Big 12 - 3

The Big 12 is the only power 5 conference without an AAU private school.

Whatever school you attended, if there was one, is the worst. You aren’t even smart enough to know not to post this drivel on the recruiting board.

Florida is a top 10 public. Top 10 is great in my book.

SEC easily. The Big 12 has a lot of stinkers. Tech is terrible. OSU is terrible. K State is terrible. All are either the "other" school in small states or in Tech's case further down the pecking order in a large state. Iowa State is a little better but still is well behind big bro Iowa in a fairly small state. Baylor and TCU are nothing special, it's a lesser education than A&M at 4 times (or more) the price. Private schools can do a lot of things for instance to boost their USN Rankings that Public Schools can't (for instance having people retake SAT's after they are in school to boost their numbers and using their private status to only report what they want).

The SEC has several schools in the average category but most are the flagship state school in their state and thus get the majority of state support and the. This applies for Arkansas, LSU, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Bama and Auburn are pretty solidly in the "good" category. South Carolina is the flagship in their state and divides well with Clemson in terms of specialties. Vanderbilt is better than anything in the Big 12. Florida and A&M are very close to Texas academically. UGA is very strong but isn't much of a research school as that money goes to GT so that keeps them from climbing up the ladder. The Mississippi schools are really the only problem children academically, just not enough resources in that state to divide between 2 schools.

The fact you list A&M, Florida and Georgia as "good" schools and Texas as a "great" school tells us all we need to know about you and your lack of knowledge on the subject.

Truth be said, most power 5 schools are comparable save a few such as Northwestern, Vanderbilt, Stanford...

A degree from Alabama, Georgia or Florida is not going to carry anymore weight respectively than a degree from Tennessee, Oklahoma or Kentucky except in the state where the university is located.
