IMO, the sec is just another conference. They have the luxury of playing in ideal conditions year round and having the "world wide leader" as their mouth piece which helps immensely in recruiting. But if you look top to bottom they are just another good conference: Alabama, LSU and Florida at the top. Tenn., Georgia, South Carolina are the second tier teams. Then you have teams like Miss. St., Ole Miss, Vandy, AM, Kentucky, Arkansas, Auburn that just suck. Just like every other major conference they have some great teams, some good teams, and some teams that suck. Again, they have the luxury of espin blowing their horn daily and they have the luxury of playing in ideal conditions all year long.
