We are now officially in the summer doldrums for college football. Most fans want to know where their team stands going through summer seven-on-seven sessions going into fall two-a-days.
There are some interesting developments that could make a big difference in the conference and nation in 2010.
The SEC will once again be the strongest conference in the nation. If the SEC champion has less than three losses, it is likely they will once again appear in the BCS Championship Game.
It appears that some of the teams in the SEC West are poised to make a run at the championship and make life unpredictable for prognosticators across the country.
There is no single theme across the SEC Western Division for 2010.
There are no less than four solid teams that could win the conference outright. The other two teams are solid and building. They look to upset someone and get into the bowl picture at the end of the season.
There is only part of one coaching staff that seems to be on the hot seat in this division for 2010. The highest new staff is an offensive coordinator. This is a division of teams and coaches that have faced each other before and know what to expect.
Many have said that this division will be harder to win than any other entire conference in college football. Most think the winner of this division will win the SEC Championship and continue on to the BCS Championship game.
There are a couple of teams in the SEC Eastern Division that might disagree with that; of course it makes a good subject for another article.
