Urban Meyer Says The SEC Is The Best Conference In The Country, Alabama Is The Best Program

As a former coach at Florida and the current coach of Ohio State, Urban Meyer is in as good a position as anyone to judge the SEC's greatness. The 50-year-old is familiar with the conference, having coached in it, but he's now a Big Ten man, so you can't say he's biased. 

In Meyer's mind, the SEC is the best conference in America, top to bottom, and Alabama is the nation's premier program. Meyer stated this during Thursday evening's College Football Playoff press conference, during which the Buckeye coach, Alabama's Nick Saban, Oregon's Mark Helfrich and Florida State's Jimbo Fisher met with the media.

If Meyer has his way, Ohio State will begin to close that gap, too.

The No. 4-ranked Buckeyes are set to take on the No. 1-ranked Crimson Tide at the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1.
