WEDNESDAY, JULY 21: Alabama, Florida, Mississippi State, Kentucky.
You gotta hand it to the SEC. They sure didn’t want to ease into this year’s media days as Alabama, the 2009 BCS national champion, and Florida, the 2008 BCS national champion, will both kick off the event next Wednesday.
Think these two teams have separated themselves from the rest of this league? They have met for the last two SEC championships and are a combined 52-4 in that span. Two of those losses are to each other while Florida lost to Ole Miss in 2008 and Alabama lost to Utah in the 2009 Sugar Bowl.
They meet again in Tuscaloosa on Oct. 2 and maybe again on Dec. 4 in Atlanta.
It’s a good thing that the schools are bringing three players this year instead of just two. If you’re Alabama, who do you leave at home?
