Let's get this out of the way right now. This is impossible to determine. There is no way to compare players from the 40s to guys who play now. The game has gone through too many drastic changes. The top 100 players in SEC history have probably all played within the last 40 years. Well, except for maybe Pete Maravich.
This list is going to be compiled by going to individual teams and taking the great players in that team's history. Of course the 10 greatest in Kentucky history are probably better than the 10 best in Ole Miss history, but it is probably fairly close. Where UK beats the other schools are players 11-1000.
So what I have done is tried to come up with the top 10 or so players from each school other than Arkansas and South Carolina because they haven't been around long enough. Some schools I had trouble coming up with 10 so I will fill in the blanks with extra UK and UF players because there were a lot of those.
I am going to do this in two parts. First I will do the SEC West and then later the SEC East. Since the East has UK the West may not quite have 50 players but there will be 100 when added together.
I'm sure many of you will call me all kinds of names over this list but here goes.
