On their homepage is a whole thing about SEC depth. And they say that the biggest threat to the SEC winning another title may very well be the depth of the conference.
It wasn't anyone's fault that Vandy won last week, it's just SEC depth. Florida and Georgia aren't just average teams guys, it's just that the SEC is so deep it's like playing an NFL schedule.
I propose that we just make the playoffs an all SEC thing, and all the other teams in the country can play for the "Not good enough to be in the SEC but still kind of an ok team when compared to other lesser teams" award.
