The Western division has a lot of contenders this year. You have the usual with Alabama and LSU being good teams, but of course this year we worry about last year's Championship game contender in Auburn. We also can't count out the great recruiting class of Texas A&M. I feel that considering each team's schedule and pure strength on returners and recruiting, that you must feel that Alabama may come back into the lead for the SEC West this year.
In the history of all things men's sports at Vanderbilt, there has never been a National Championship. They've done a lot of great things, but National Champ has never been put next to a men's sport for the Commodores. That ended this summer as the Vanderbilt Baseball Team won it's first championship. They came through in ways that probably shocked, surprised, and baffled even the players on the team.
The game between Arkansas and Texas on Dec 6, 1969 had major implication on determining who will be the National Champions of that season. Both schools have not integrated their football teams until a year later. A newly elected President of the United States, Richard Nixon was on hand to witness a piece of history. Arkansas and Texas were both in the SWC.
Few teams were struck by the injury bug worse than the 2013 Georgia Bulldogs, as a number of key players missed time with injuries throughout the year, and a year that started with a lot of promise ended with a disappointing 8-5 record. However, the Dawgs return more than enough talent to contend for the top spot in the ultra-competitive SEC East. With a little better injury luck and some quick development on the defensive side of the ball, the Bulldogs should be right in the thick of the race for College Football tickets.
With the 2014 NFL Draft starting on Thursday, we're finally going to get to find out where the top prospects will end up for this upcoming season. This includes many SEC prospects, including those you were rooting for when you were betting on SEC football. If you feel like this draft season has gone on forever, you're not alone; the draft was pushed back three weeks due to scheduling conflicts at Radio City Music Hall.It's scheduling conflicts like this that has caused the NFL to consider moving the draft out of its longtime home in New York.
Auburn Tigers tickets were a sizzling hot commodity last year as the team, led by head coach Gus Malzahn, stormed through their schedule to win the SEC and finish #2 in the nation. Not much was expected of the Tigers after a disappointing 2012 campaign, which led to the firing of Gene Chizik. Instead, Malzahn turned a team that had been 3-9 into an offensive juggernaut that finished 12-2 and was seconds away from another national title.
NFL draft coverage can be so negative. We're always talking about what teams don't have, where they're missing key players. We highlight and dwell over a team's shortcomings, all the while ignoring the strengths they have. With that in mind, and with apologies to Sports on Earth's Mike Tanier, let's try to construct a bizzaro-world, worst possible mock draft. We're giving each team players they frankly don't need—the worst pick they could make in each slot, while still taking first-round-caliber talent.
The Uconn Huskies won the NCAA Championship of Men's Basketball tonight by defeating the Kentucky Wildcats by a narrow margin. Uconn came out of the gates strong and while Kentucky made run after run, the Huskies proved to be more experienced and mentally tougher. The game really came down to the inability of Kentucky to make free-throws. It could have simply been nerves. Randle did not play his best game, but I felt that Young showed that he too, will be a major factor in the NBA in the future and I'm sure in the draft this summer.
The season has come down to it's final four, and to the shock of many, the SEC has two teams left standing. This tournament did not go the way most picked, but Kentucky may just be the shock of the tournament. Florida was the number one overall seed and most prognosticators had picked them to get the the round of four. Kentucky was given an eight seed and had to beat undefeated Wichita State and Louisville, before defeating Big Ten Power and number 2 seed Michigan to get to the semi-final round.

Because of the support of their fans,
Southeastern Conference (SEC) schools (overall) have the biggest and best stadiums, athletic facilities, coaches, athletes, sports tradition, and history.
When an SEC football or basketball team plays a home game, that game is probably the biggest thing going on in the entire state at the time.
No other conference has that kind of fan support. So, SEC sports is what it is (the best) because of its fans.
