Alabama was the only contender for the SEC this past year. We have to count Auburn by default... since they spoiled Alabama's season. and what happened to them? Oh. One was slaughtered by an ACC team. The other slaughtered by a Big 10 team. Lately it's only been 3 teams: Alabama, LSU, and Florida. Most the time it's due to one player: Tebow, Cam Newton, etc.
