COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - In the powerhouse Southeastern Conference,
not all members measure up with the game's best.
See, there's good and then there's SEC good.
Alabama, Florida and LSU have combined for six even national
championships and 13 SEC titles since 1992. Others, like South
Carolina or Mississippi State, do well against nonconference
opponents, but go decades - and several coaching changes - trying
to creep to the top.
Since 1977 only six schools have won the conference title, and
its unlikely any of the have-nots will break through this year.
With several SEC teams opening league play this weekend, No. 1
Alabama and No. 8 Florida are heavy favorites to face off for at
third straight season in the league's title game.
