It's not the best measure, and certainly not the only one, but the SEC has done really well in bowl games during the BCS era. I think 2013 is a down year for the conference, but Alabama is still exceptionally good, and I expect to see them play Oregon for the MNC game. The mid-tier teams have a lot of issues this year, but it's not much different than any other conference. This year, sure the SEC is over-rated. The last 6 years though? No, not really. They have been dominating.
