Thanks to Alabama and Florida, there has been very little drama in the SEC divisional races after the third or fourth week of October the past two seasons.
That’s what happens when two teams go a combined 31-1 in SEC regular-season play.
Between them, Alabama and Florida have lost a total of three games over the last two seasons, and two of those losses were to each other in the SEC championship game.
There’s been a clear separation in the SEC. It’s been Alabama and Florida and then everybody else, and the two kingpins haven’t done anything on the recruiting trail to make anybody think they’re going to slow down any time soon.
