    In America there are two seasons: football season and waiting for football season.

    Even though it is only February, it is never too early to start looking at college football predictions.

    Earlier, I wrote one about the top 25, which you can read here, but this one puts a focus on all of the teams in the SEC.

    The SEC has won five national championships in a row, and shows no sign of letting up on its competition.

    Spring practice and spring games are only a couple weeks away, so we will get a brief glimpse of what to expect in the fall. However, even that won't fill the void that we all feel.

    Following spring practice I will do a follow-up slideshow with updated odds. There are many position battles that will take place in the spring that could affect these odds.

    For this slideshow I list the teams' schedules and an early prediction of wins, losses and tossups. Later, I will provide a more in-depth look at all of the SEC teams.

    Let it be clear that these are my opinions, and they are just that. I know that people will disagree with me, and you have that right to have your own opinions. I expect that.

    This is the best conference there is, filled with the most passionate fans in the country.

    Here it is, the over-under win total for every SEC team. Let the debate begin.
