Auburn's Gus Malzahn Thinks The SEC Is At A Disadvantage When It Comes To The College Football Playoff

If you dislike the SEC, here's another thing to add to your hate list. 

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn told ESPN today that he believes his conference is at a disadvantage when it comes to the College Football Playoff.

Why? His league is so tough that even after a nearly month-long break in between the conference championship game and CFB Playoff semifinal game, the SEC teams are less fresh than their opponent. He also thinks the Big 12 should have a title game.

This is a little ridiculous. If you want to make the argument that the SEC is the toughest league to win, fine. But don't tell us that a reason your teams lose come January is because they're less fresh than their opponent.
