Kentucky is bad so the SEC is bad, right?

I do a news search several times a day to see what articles mention or discuss Ole Miss. This morning all the talk is about how the SEC is down. (See a list at the bottom of the blog)
The SEC hasn't performed as well in non-conference play as it has in the past but it also hasn't been terrible. It's 121-41 in non-conference play. Yes, the league is 1-9 against ranked opponents. Also, the RPI of the entire conference is low. However, if we replace Vandy with Florida and Ole Miss with Kentucky this year, I doubt the SEC would appear to be "as" down.
Just my opinion, but I am unanimous in it!
