Spare me the Florida and UK talk. Yes the national champ has come out of the SEC quite a bit the last decade or so, but lets be honest, this is not an indicator of the relative strength of the overall conference. The SEC is behind and I really have no explanation for it. The South has plenty of talent but yet they flock to other conferences. Sure, winning breeds winning and better recruiting....but I see a parallel to football: put your money where your mouth is and good will follow. Hire good coaching, upgrade facilities and get people into the arena. Is the SEC just not doing enough in this regard? Like student recruiting, I have to think that big household names like LSU or Bama has to be a nice draw for a basketball recruit. Maybe not?
