Ok, I'll say it, if you prefer any other conference for collegiate atheltics than the SEC, you are settling for (at best) second best. There is nothing in the world that can compete with the spectical, the athletic dominance, that is the SEC
There is no tougher conference (on a consistent basis) and there is no more athletic, talented conference than the SEC.
As such, I am pumped about the return of SEC football! Gators v. Vols, Gators v. Dawgs, Gators v. Tigers (both Auburn & LSU), and not to mention Gators v. Seminloes! Oh, man, it's gonna be fun!!!
For additional insight you should check out the most recent article on ESPN.com from Gene Wojciechowski. It's a fantastic look at the hype surrounding the SEC.
