Arkansas Coach Bret Bielema Trashes Ohio State's Schedule During SEC Conference Call

No one can argue against the top-to-bottom strength of the SEC. 10 conference teams finished in the Top 25 of the AP poll, which is incredibly impressive. However, the No. 1 team, Ohio State, resides in the Big Ten, and clearly that digs at some. Arkansas coach Bret Bielema, who has long had a trying relationship with the Buckeyes from his days as Wisconsin head coach, took a shot at the defending national champs and their fairly light schedule during an SEC conference call today.

Bielema is right. As of now, the only ranked team remaining on Ohio State's schedule is No. 5 Michigan State. However, there's nothing Ohio State can really do about the strength of the Big Ten, especially when college football schedules are set years in advance. Also, when the SEC teams constantly brag about the strength of the conference, and rightfully so, it comes off as a bit disingenuous when coaches then complain about the weakness of other leagues.
