With conference play just around the corner, the Southeastern Conference is poised to have a great year. Four teams from the SEC started the season in the top 25; currently there are three teams in the top 25, with Vanderbilt and Alabama flirting just outside of being ranked.
The conference, like the rest of the nation, is experiencing a luxurious amount of talent. Great athletes abound across the SEC, and there should be great games.
This article will shed light on the most important players in the conference—players that are vital to their team winning games.
It should be noted that importance is not skill. Importance in the SEC is the quality of dictating whether or not your team wins on any given night. For example, the Kentucky Wildcats may have more talent than any other team in the SEC, but their roster is so balanced that any player can have an off night and they could still win.
Night in and night out, these are the players that are the most important to their team's success.
