When they refuse to bow to the media, I’ve bragged on faculty gridiron coaches. For example, I did not head former Georgia Tech skipper Paul Johnson’s devilish sideline opinions after assisting his Yellow Jackets whip Mississippi State in the Orange Bowl a few years back. “For once,” he chuckled,”we do not need to listen about the SEC.”
But take away the attitude, and that quote isn’t among the phrases of ol’ CPJ.
National pundits will constantly talk SEC football. As we should. The conference boasts 1 out of two of the leading annual College Football Playoff contenders, along with the SEC’s University of Georgia is arguably as difficult to conquer in a CFP match as Alabama as the decade winds to a close.
The SEC is simply a small number of decades’ eliminated from absolute dominance of the FBS. Southeastern Conference schools won 7 national titles from 2006-2012.
An individual could argue that because then, the ACC and Big Ten have simply grown stronger, as opposed to SEC football growing weaker. In fact it’s no longer really a grand idea to think of elite FBS programs (or FCS programs for that matter) as”representing” a seminar. Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State and a couple of select other teams may as well belong in another branch. They each have to play at a conference — but they would all look like a million dollars against just about any P5 program.
Alabama has won two titles in the CFP age, like the Clemson Tigers have.
The only problem is that the SEC isn’t sending as many teams to that upper stratosphere nowadays. UGA is obviously a powerhouse, but short lived runs in the grail from other Southeastern colleges have seemed to be built on quicksand.
Nick Fitzgerald won games with his legs at Mississippi State, but he could not win them all that way. Drew Lock could zing an NFL chunk but he has moved on since last year. LSU knows how to let a fan base, and Texas A&M knows how to come close-but-no-cigar versus the aristocrats of this game.
Can the duopoly be contested? Can a sleeper surprise Kirby Smart or even Nick Saban in 2019 in division of the SEC?
