I'd love to see it happen, but frankly, I doubt it will. They love their football in the South.
Ted Miller post referring to another ESPeNiS reporter's article that the PAC 12 will over take the SEC as the dominant football conference. Interesting idea. The comment section is on fire right now and worth your time.
Well this should be interesting when Bama Chuckles finds this.
There's wayyyyy more talent in the South
While maybe totally unrelated, I nominate "buffs" for username of the year.
Realistically, you have the PAC, SEC and B1G and then everybody else. ACC is in the conversation, but still a basketball conference imo.
No way, they take their football way too seriously down there.
Rather than debate this, print it and show it to our east coast recruits.
It's the money matters theory. Which is actually correct, but to say that the SEC will fall below the P12 assumes that the SEC will sit pat when it comes to money matters. Which it will not.
The SEC while always good, has not always dominated. College football goes in cycles and so to go power conferences.
The ACC puts in as many athletes as the SEC into the NFL.
This isn't about the NFL though and never has been. The quality of their non-NFL talent is pretty big compared to other conferences.
That and their fanaticism and year round football helps. Coaches that get paid boo-koo bucks also adds to it. As does the CBS deal and ESPN deal. I doubt the Pac12 could surpass the SEC, but that doesn't mean we can't step up our game and make it more competitive though top to bottom.
The SEC had 49 players selected in last month's NFL draft, the 11th time in the past 13 years that it tied or led for the most draft picks among college football conferences.
