Fan Friday: What's With All of the SEC Hate?

I may be a little bit biased, being a Georgia girl through + through -- but I think that there is some seriously misplaced hatred for the best conference in college football. I know plenty of people will argue that it's tall talk + there's nothing to back it up -- that's incorrect. I did a quick little search -- according to SDS there are 57 former SEC players in this weekend's AFC + NFC title games. FIFTY. SEVEN.

Plus we make awesome videos like this one:

It's easy to hate a conference when they play harder than you in every game. When they recruit top athletes + have that obnoxious BCS Title Dynasty thing we had going on for so long. Even if Florida won some of those. I hate the gators -- but I will cheer for them to not lose if the other team isn't an SEC team. I did love this though:

I think the thing not SEC people hate the most is that we tend to stick together. When our team isn't in the big game -- you pick the SEC team in the big game (because let's be for real -- there usually is one). Apparently you're supposed to cheer for the other team. Which makes no sense to me -- wouldn't you want the team that beat you to end up being the best? Don't get me wrong -- I didn't want the end of the Georgia Auburn game to become legend -- but at the same time I didn't really want an ACC team to win the last BCS title.

I'm really looking forward to the whole playoff situation next season though. THAT should be interesting. Plus that whole replay in baseball thing -- 2014 is going to be an interesting year...
