Fact or fiction: Fans weigh in on if SEC is awesome or overrated

The Southeastern Conference kicked off play today, starting its season a couple of weeks later than some other conferences.

It presented a good time to ask the question: Is the SEC truly that much better than all other conferences, or is the league overrated?

I posed the question to Penn State and Big Ten fans on Twitter, and their responses were mixed. Many totally agreed that the SEC deserves all the hype it gets, while some others feel the league is overrated once you get past the top few teams.
