Former Florida and current Illinois coach Ron Zook thinks the SEC is better than Big Ten

In case you missed it while you were out this holiday weekend:

First, Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville came out and said the Big 12 would probably not last very long because there’s just too much disparity between all the teams.
Now, Illinois coach Ron Zook has said that the SEC is a better league than the Big Ten.
The former Florida head coach was a guest on The Paul Finebaum Radio show earlier this week and when asked if the SEC was a “better conference” than the Big Ten, Zook said:
“At this time, it probably is but I think there’s teams in the Big Ten Conference just as well as there’s teams in the Southeastern Conference that can play against anybody.”
