Joel Klatt thinks highly of Alabama. The SEC on the other hand? Meh.

The Fox Sports analyst sounded off on what has been a rough start to 2021 for the SEC, hailed universally as the best conference in college football. Georgia was down 21-10 late in the third quarter to Cincinnati and Northwestern was up 14-6 over Auburn at halftime.

And while the Auburn score wasn’t a surprise, especially since Northwestern is a quality team and ranked No. 14 in the nation, the manner in which Georgia was looking to a ‘Group-of-5’ program in the Bearcats obviously led to Klatt’s tweet. Auburn is admittedly average this year. Georgia, however, is No. 9 in the nation.
