Kirk Herbstreit, When Asked How Ohio State Would Fare vs. SEC: "Ask Alabama"

The SEC, which currently boasts a whopping 10 teams in the AP Poll, is universally regarded as the best college football conference in the country. But the league's difficulty isn't necessarily a good thing for all of its programs. Two head coaches in the conference - Mississippi State's Dan Mullen and Arkansas' Bret Bielema - have recently made comments regarding the difficulty of their slates when compared to that of Ohio State. 

As a result, we now have a national debate regarding strength of schedule. And it seems like everyone is chiming in.

Friday, a Twitter user asked ESPN College GameDay personality Kirk Herbstreit how he thinks Ohio State would fare against teams from the SEC. His answer was pretty succinct.

Luckily, we now have the College Football Playoff to settle these debates. Unfortunately, that's around four months away.
