Alabama - 29

Georgia - 26
Oklahoma - 24
Florida - 23
USC - 23
4 of 6 from SEC
And this is not counting free agent signings!
At least the top 4 of those figure to have a lot of draftees in this year's draft as w...

| Tiger Rant|| IMO a big key to the success of LSU in 2014 will be - MetryTyger on 1/8/14 at 3:11 pm|
the offensive line, not necessarily who plays QB.
If we have a dominant O-line next year, we should have a monster running game.
Hill and Magee are proven commodities. Then you throw in the best prep player in the nation in Fournette and the 2nd best running back in Louisiana in Williams.

Ten CFB programs have at least 2 BCSNCG appearances, and 4 of them are SEC: Bama, Auburn, LSU and Florida.
(USC, Miami, FSU, Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio State).
3 programs have 3 appearances (2 SEC) : Ohio State (1-2), LSU (2-1), and Alabama (3-0).
Only 2 CFB programs have 4 BCSNCG appearances ...
| SEC Rant|| The funny thing is, if Bama had won...... - MetryTyger on 1/3/14 at 12:02 pm|
the SEC would be 6-1 right now and the board would have had more of an SEC chest-bumping feel to it today.
Actually I wouldn't have been upset if that had happened. Everyone expected it too, to be honest.
Except, OU fans of course....

Alabama should be named 2013 Associated Press National Champions if Fla. State ekes out a non-impressive 13-10 win over Auburn in a sloppy national championship game.
