this year i'd agree. however on average i'd say the big 12 is close enough to call it a wash. the sec may usually have the best team overall, but they stackup well typically.
i think the sec has been considerably stronger this decade, from national titles & bowl wins to players in the nfl.
y'all quit playing defense in the big 12 and i don't buy that 42-35 league (however, the auburn - arkansas score does not help that arguement.)
i'd have to say the big 12 is 2nd best, there's just such a drop off after oklahoma and texas though for real contenders most years in, years out.
LSU, Florida, Alabama have all won national championships this decade, LSU 2x and florida 2X.
auburn was robbed of having a shot at it when they went undefeated and oklahoma went and got drummed by USC.
