SEC is Dirtiest Football Conference -- by a wide margin

by Herkie

No football conference has been more successful than the Southeastern Conference -- or as dirty.

While the SEC's run of five consecutive BCS titles and seven national championships in the past 13 seasons is unprecedented in college football, so is the number of major NCAA infractions the league has accumulated.

S-E-C! S-E-C!

As part of this five-part series on cheating in college football, we look at which conferences and schools have cheated the most. Beginning in 1987 -- to coincide with SMU receiving the Death Penalty -- the SEC leads all conferences in major infractions with 13.

Since 1987, 10 of the SEC's 12 football programs have committed major infractions, according to the NCAA. The league's only football programs without a major infraction since 1987 are LSU (its last major infraction came in 1986) and Vanderbilt (which has never had a major infraction).

Alabama and Texas Tech, a former Southwest Conference school and current Big 12 member, have committed the most major infractions since 1987 with three each.

I totally agree that the SEC is the dirtiest conference that mistreats school who does not have a winning tradition. The way they punished a player from South Carolina was stupid, but they did nothing to a player of Alabama that picked up a football player from Missouri and through him down on his neck.
