Very few would argue that the SEC is the nation’s most domain conference. In fact, many are professing that the upcoming LSU/Alabama game might as well be the national championship game.
At the same time, the SEC has been considered a league filled with scandals and mischief, and this week has only confirmed those notions.
It started with the SEC’s horrific decision to suspend Georgia Bulldog nose tackle Kwame Geathers the same amount of time that they are suspending Vanderbilt center Logan Stewart, although video evidence shows that Stewart came dangerously close to ending Geathers; career by diving for his knees after the completion of the play.
Then news broke of three prominent LSU players being suspended for a failed drug test. The three players were Spencer Ware, Tyrann Mathieu and Tharold Simon. One could argue that Ware is LSU’s best offensive player and no one would argue that Tyrann Mathieu isn't LSU’s best defensive player.
The players will only be suspended one game.
The week, however, was not over. The following morning news broke that highly touted freshman running back Brent Calloway had been arrested for drug possession the night before.
Yes the SEC is the nation’s premier football conference, but it also has serious public image issues. However, as you can tell by this week suspensions, winning is all that matters.
