In 2007 the world of college football changed. The Bowl Championship Series suddenly became a two horse race between the SEC Champion and the other best team in the country. For fans of every other conference not starting with the title of Southeastern, the hate ensued.
It was the same hate the Lakers, Yankees, Braves, and Cowboys feel just about all the time everywhere. People love to hate the ones on top. The SEC, before this past season, was easily on top. Even though Florida State finally broke the winning streak, the SEC is still going to be the toughest conference in sports. Period.
Here are a few alumni that experienced the love/hate of the SEC. Enjoy.
