The SEC and the BCS: How the SEC Could Cannibalize Itself in 2012
Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE
The SEC is gunning for its seventh straight BCS Championship

Domination, six straight national champions, chants of SEC and fans throughout the south sticking their chest out proudly to proclaim their league is in fact the best on the college football landscape.

For six years straight, regardless of the competitor or the SEC representative, the results are the same. The BCS trophy has made a home in the Southeastern Conference, and as the first BCS standings were released this past weekend  six SEC teams are in the top 15 and four of the top eight teams are from the Southeastern Conference. 

With Alabama at No. 1 and Florida at No. 2 and LSU following suit with South Carolina, many feel it is a foregone conclusion that at least one SEC team will challenge for that seventh straight title, and with a little luck, may repeat last year's title game that hosted two competitors from the SEC. 

Alabama would love to win its third title in four years and other SEC contenders would love to hoist the trophy themselves, but what if no SEC teams make the title game? You think I have lost my mind? Maybe, but with the parity that is in the SEC this year, let's look at a scenario over the next six weeks where the SEC could cannibalize itself and be left totally out of the equation.
