They say you should not judge a book by it’s cover, but the SEC wants you to do just that with the 2011 SEC media guide cover.
The SEC would like to remind you that they have won five straight BCS titles and they are not ready to end that streak just yet. For some historical perspective, the last time a power conference won more than three in a row, the Big Ten won four straight from 1933-1936, which was boosted by a three-year championship reign by Minnesota. Ivy League members put together an eight year string of championships but that happened 40 years before there was an Ivy League.
We get it SEC, you’re awesome. Can you win one for the thumb now?
Of course, some folks have already made sure to alert the SEC that an alternate cover may be more suitable, given the current NCAA investigation in to Auburn’s football program.
Staying on topic with the SEC, my column on Examiner.com this morning takes a look at some of the questions I have for the conference this upcoming season. The SEC media days open up tomorrow (Wednesday) and continue throughout the week. Before they get underway be sure to see how I am predicting the SEC West and SEC East divisions this season, and be sure to be caught up on podcasts from last week. Vince Ferrara, SEC writer for Examiner.com and host of the Knoxville News Sentinel Sportspage, talked about the entire SEC, Go Vol’s Xtra‘s Wes Rucker joined us to talk a little more about Tennessee, and Stephen Prather from Coaches By The Numbers gave us his look at the coaches in the conference and what makes them so successful.
