    From today's Washington Post:

    Sunday, October 14, 2007; Page D15


    Louisiana State's triple-overtime loss at Kentucky blurred the national title picture but added some clarity to an argument that has gained traction in recent years: The Southeastern Conference has become too strong for its own good.

    That has never been clearer than this season, which has left all SEC teams battered and beaten midway through the schedule. The image of LSU running back Jacob Hester limping from the field before the definitive fourth-down play in the third overtime was a perfect advertisement for the country's most brutal conference.
