Is SEC Championship Game THE National Championship Game?

by Mo Johnson
(SEC Country)

Seems like it to me. I don't think we've ever had two undefeated teams playing in the SEC Football Championship Game. Much less the teams ranked #1 and #2 in the nation.


It's really amazing. Not sure any conference has ever had a game as huge as this one.

And this is not just any conference. The SEC has won the past 3 National Championships and 4 of the past 6. The SEC dominates modern college football. And these are two of the best SEC football teams ever. The winner will be considered perhaps the best SEC football team ever.

Effectively the winner will be recognized as the best team in the country -- probably even if they were to lose the BCS Championship Game.

The other amazing thing is that 2 of the top contenders for the Heisman Trophy are also facing off in this game. Tim Tebow, Florida QB and Mark Ingram, Alabama RB.

So, this game could well decide college football's national champion as well as the Heisman Trophy.

Personally, I think Alabama is a stronger team top to bottom. But, I think Florida has a slightly better defense and of course has Tim Tebow. It's hard to picture TT walking off the field having lost the last SEC game he played in.

So, the biggest game of the college football year is December 5th at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. I wouldn't bet against either Florida or Alabama.

I think you should read jeff p comments he has a point sec teams do not play other good teams out side of the sec if they played teams like USC, TEXAS,OKLA,OHIO ST,EVEN TEAMS LIKE WEST VIRGINIA, PITTSBURG,CINCINNATI BEARCATS DURING THE YEAR AND NOT JUST ONE OF THEM IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

I believe it would be better games through out the year then we could tell each year what teams are tough , plus all the teams in the sec are not that good so know this game you speak about is a important game but it is not the national championship game it is only the sec championship game and one more thing while we are talking about it what other teams have been in the championship game from the sec, ala, florida, LSU that is it thats not a conference just three teams.

8 teams have played in SEC Championship Game
by: Mo Johnson

Actually 8 of the 12 teams in the SEC have played in the SEC Championship Game. All but Ole Miss, Vandy, Kentucky and South Carolina.

I also would love to see more non-conference games between the BCS conferences. But, I think the SEC plays as many of those games as any other conference.

check out ohio state's non-conference schedule some time. you'll see what i mean. although i know OSU and Tenn. recently signed for a home and home series. i think maybe in 2015 or so.

can't wait :)
