SEC Football 2011: SEC on Its Way to Worst Season in Six Years
The SEC is the cream of the crop in the college football world. A bad season for them is still a pedestrian season for most other conferences but that is exactly what the SEC is facing this season.
That means that they might not win the BCS national championship or have half of the conference ranked at the end of the season.
The world may really end in 2012.
The teams in the top five, Alabama and LSU, both have quarterback issues and the Tigers, while impressive, were helped considerably by Oregon’s fumbles and lack of size and experience on the defensive front seven.
Arkansas is without its best rusher Knile Davis, Auburn looked hapless against Utah State, Ole Miss lost to BYU and Mississippi State has yet to put together back-to-back seasons of nine wins.
In the East, the favorites’, South Carolina, defense did not look great against East Carolina. Georgia didn’t look like it could handle a tough defensive line and the rest of the division is still in rebuilding mode.
Expect these teams to beat up on each other during the regular season for the SEC champion to have at least one loss, possibly two. That could be enough to keep the SEC out of the national championship depending on how the rest of the country performs.
And if everyone has multiple losses, teams like Auburn, Georgia and Florida could all drop out of the Top 25, leaving the league with only five ranked teams.
That still seems like a great year but it would be the worst one the SEC’s had in a very long time.
