But when people tout the SEC as the best defensive league and the stats don't back them up, they just spout BS like the bolded above.
Michigan State leads the nation in almost every defensive category. But yea sure, I'm positive Vanderbilt has a better defense. They are the 5th ranked defense in the SEC after all................
Simple explanation that Big Ten fans have difficulty understanding, SEC defenses have to face SEC offenses. Michigan St. defensive stats are built on playing anemic Big Ten offenses. It's not difficult. An open mind helps keep the reality of situation in perspective. You saw how that great Notre Dame defense handled Alabama last year didn't you?
