The SEC has been the epicenter of the best football in the country for the past decade. If the BCS title game doesn't have an SEC member in it, it's an abomination. The conference is just that good. The football is better than you'll see from some NFL teams and the tailgates are legendary. You've always heard that women are more gorgeous in the South and the SEC proves that statement to be 130 percent true. But who's the hottest of the SEC fanbases?
I'm excited for Vandy because they are so academically superior, but their football team's success on the field is spotty at best and their fans have not represented the fan base very well on the Interwebs.
This is the best we have for you, Commodore Nation.
The Wildcats aren't very competitive on the field, but there's no doubt that there are plenty of cuties on campus. Again, they just haven't represented on the Web like the other schools. The only reason I put them No. 11 instead of No. 12 is because I've been to a few games.
Although we must say, we were mighty impressed by the double-fisted swilling here.
It's difficult to truly pin this to football.
Is she a fan or is she a cheerleader?
I just pulled a hamstring just thinking of trying to stretch like that.
I feel heat coming on for this selection, but again, I just haven't seen the all-out representation from the Rebels crowd.
They are beautiful people, there's no doubting that.
The fervor is just not comparable on the Web.
That's one lucky Colonel, right there.
They get all gussied up before they put on the face paint and jerseys.
I'm not going to lie. I was surprised I found myself putting the Bulldogs in the top 10.
They don't have a ton of photos out there. But this beauty proves it's all about quality over quantity.
This program is on the rise after years in the cellar. The same can be said for the fan base. Friends on campus tell me that the beauty factor has risen exponentially over the last two years.
Of all the spots you could have landed in the crowd, Bulley, you have an eye for where to take the perfect photo.
Well played, my friend.
I live in the Palmetto State. I'm a regular at Williams-Brice and I have to tell you, the hotties are just not there like you think they'd be.
The crowd is rather subdued and the game scene is incredibly boring.
Some might be offended, but once you are inside state lines, the four-letter word becomes a rally cry.
Fans from around the country will tease them because they love their Gamecocks, but the southern USC just doesn't care.
There's exceptions to every rule. There's plenty of gorgeous women in Columbia, including this beauty cracking open the roasted version of the signature snack of the South, boiled peanuts.
If I had to rate the southern Tigers, I'd say Clemson, LSU, then Auburn. Then again, just as Gene Chizik has the football team on the upswing, the Tigers' fans are far from ugly. It's just very tough competition.
The costume is sweaty, especially in 90-degree fall heat.
The fans can be cruel and there's a good chance you're going to be doused with beer.
But a photo like this makes me want to be a mascot right now.
You have to hand it to the merchandisers these days.
They find very creative places to highlight their logo.
The Pig Sooie crowd is far from homely.
Bobby Petrino has the fan base re-energized.
Beauties like this bring the energy level in the stadium up significantly.
One of these things is not like the other, one of these things won't do...
The hotness factor definitely heats up as you get closer to the field with the Razorbacks.
Who knew Jessica Alba was a Vols fan?
The Tennessee crowd is especially known for their hospitality, unless you decide to take the USC head coaching job.
Some fans like to show off their Tennessee pride right down to the bikini bottoms at the tailgate.
We salute you right back, ma'am.
In the land of Bear Bryant, the plaid hats are a necessary accessory for the true fan.
Hey, how did a picture of my ex-girlfriend get in here?
Either that or "The Nanny" is a Tide fan.
With incentive like this, we have to imagine Alabama is one of the cleanest teams in the SEC, if not the entire country.
The crimson, the Indiana Jones hat. It all works here.
There's a mix of hotties in jerseys and the Churchill Downs Kentucky Derby mint julep crowd that give 'Bama a two-tiered attack.
The symmetry in this photo is like an Ansel Adams photograph. Dawgs fans have more than UGA the Bulldog to get them into the game.
From Savannah to Atlanta, the Dawgs own the state.
Sure, there's some Georgia Tech fans, but UGA is everything in the state.
Even if you're just wearing logo overalls, the ladies will flock to you.
I've been lucky enough to attend several UGA tailgates as well and can confirm that the Daisy Duke crowd parties right through to dawn after the big in-conference wins.
It's the photo that became an Internet sensation and has catapulted the Tigers up many a hot fan base ranking. But I can tell you that these lovely ladies are very representative of the talent pool in the bayou.
It's a close call between LSU and Florida, but from my point of view, the LSU crowd has the most female fans wearing the authentic replicas on game day.
And they wear them well.
Then there's the bevy of these kinds of photos.
LSU girls love to take a midriff photo with a football in hand.
Every LSU fan in the making throws a spiral by age 5.
We're thinking that the Marines recruiter who let these ladies use the Hummer for a photo backdrop was perfectly content to snap away all day.
Sorry, folks. I have hated Gators Nation since Spurrier but you can't fight physics. The Gators fans are simply stunning. If Greek nymphs went in exile, they probably went to Gainesville.
Maybe Gators fans are just the most creative in tearing up the shirts.
Whatever they're doing, it's working.
Listen, I know this slideshow has to end sometime.
But there is an incredible load of proof to back up my ranking.
The evidence just goes on...
The colors are perfect. The ladies love wearing the powder blue and the orange combo.
And it seems like every Gators t-shirt is tailored for midriffs.
Erin Dewes, I don't care if you dated Tim Tebow or not.
You got your 15 minutes of fame and we got these lovely photos.
Let the debate begin.
This is the kind of heated argument where everyone wins.
The one thing we can all agree on.
There are no ugly girls in the SEC.
We figured we'd give you one more bonus for flipping through 39 slides.
Hit me up with photographic proof that your school is better in the comments.
I'm perfectly happy to adjust the standings with solid backing for your argument, pun intended.
