The SEC generates a lot of buzz nationally, from haters attempting to troll the best conference in college football to lovers praising everyone from Commissioner Mike Slive to Nick Saban and the league’s cast of characters.
Between the play on the field, the press conferences of Les Miles and Steve Spurrier and the offseason shirtless antics of Bret Bielema, it’s a very media-friendly conference when you think about it.
Each week, we’ll make the rounds nationally to see what fans, analysts and other experts are saying about the SEC. Let’s go.
SEC football fans are absolutely insane. If you ain’t in the SEC, you ain’t even D1 apparently. Good lord. Oh well 23 and counting.

4 of the top 5 teams in this week’s AP college football poll are in the SEC West. This equates to national quarterfinals? #secfootball
