    Play 1 = Blah Argument
    Play 2 = Legit Argument
    Play 3 = He's short
    Play 4 = Blah Argument

    Yes I want more! Go find some better videos that weren't put together by some pissed off Georgia fan.

    Prove that with links from a top site like rivals.com or athlon or SI.

    Virginia was not top 10 in 07, 08, 09.

    SEC bias clips are stupid and Florida doesn't need help from the refs to beat Georgia every year.

    ...yet they still only average .5 more NFL draftees a year than any other conference.

    Pretty much the definition of overrated.

    Let's ignore than 90% of top rated HS recruits are coming out of the south anyway, and how the southern schools get the leg-up with weather, crap academic standards, etc also.

    This is all a vicious cycle.

    Jealous fans of other conferences bash the SEC, the SEC fans gets mad and defend it, and then are called blind homers thus to spark another argument. These arguments are pointless and completely egocentric. However, when 3 different teams in the same conference win the national championship over a 4 year period that has to speak for itself. Just saying.

    IMO it is pretty obvious the top 1/3 SEC teams are the best top 1/3 of any conference in the nation. Other conferences might be close to the SEC in the bottom 2/3s. Still, playing a full SEC schedule would reveal just how tough the conference is. I'd like to see USC, Ohio State or Texas play a full SEC schedule. IMO teams like TN, Ga and Auburn would give those teams a run for their money and they would get beat by AL, LSU and FL.

    Has it never dawned on you that some coaches have coaching styles that apply better to college athletes? There are NFL coaches that go to college and don't succeed as well. Saban and Spurrier's success doesn't necessarily mean that college coaches are worse, it more likely means that they are different.

    It's ignorant to diagnose things based on made up assumptions.

    Pull up that study from last year about how many of those draftees actually have NFL careers over the long term...

    True but Florida State has had a top 10 recruiting class 5 of the last 6 years, what do they have to show for it? Nothing.

    NFL starters by college conference: (average)

    1. SEC: 11.4
    2. ACC: 10.1
    3. Big Ten: 9.5
    4. Pac-10: 7
    5. Big 12: 6
    6. Big East: 4.1

    And when you really break it down by position, it's very balanced. The SEC has more kickers than anyone in, I think. lol
