Let me just say, that the SEC has developed itself into the best conference in all of football. Whether we're watching Tim Tebow and Percy Harvin, or Cam Newton and a Tigers defense that can get the job done, almost every team in the conference is having continued success in the NCAA.
After Auburn defeated the Oregon Ducks 22-19 in one of the best matched BCS National Championship games to date, the SEC locked up their 5th BCS title in a row.
But it's not just the champions that are making it into bowl-season, nine of the 12 teams in the SEC made it into bowl games.
Maybe this year is the year the SEC falls apart, with a great senior class for many teams moving beyond their college years, and numerous juniors joining the NFL. But this season is a chance for the SEC to prove their dominance over the rest of the league and establish themselves as the undisputed best conference.
Teams like Auburn, losing Newton and four of their top five tacklers need to show their recruiting skills, and Florida can show the nation that there is life after the loss of a tremendous coach.
This upcoming season could be incredible for the SEC, but there are plenty of factors and teams that come into play the first few weeks that could turn the SEC into a 2011 bust.
