I know others have ranked the best bands in college football before, but I felt the need to rank the best in just the SEC.
Considering I haven't seen many bands outside of the SEC, I would be foolish to rank them. Thus, I will only rank the bands I have consistently seen...
Basis for rankings:
1. Difficulty of Formations (During Pregame or Halftime Performances, how difficult are the band formations and movements the band attempts?)
2. Loudness/Intimidation Factor (The More Brass instruments a band has, which would include trumpets or tubas, generally the louder the band is. During a 3rd down huddle, bands playing can potentially rattle opposing teams due to their volume)
3. Originality of Songs Played (Does the band only play the school's fight songs, or does the band incorporate other songs in their play list, which would include rock songs, movie themes, etc)
