There¿s no getting around it: the Southeastern Conference is really good. Yes, it has gotten some great BCS bounces through the years, but the bottom line is that the SEC is better than all other football leagues because it cares more about being better. The SEC has dominated the BCS era, winning nine of 15 championships. The league¿s only loss in a BCS final came last year when Alabama shut out Louisiana State in New Orleans. Next year is the last BCS season before there is a four-team playoff. The last BCS game is at the Rose Bowl. The SEC will be favored to win that one, too.
