Is the SEC Championship game EVER going to feature anyone but Florida, Georgia, or Tennessee from the East?

I just don't see either of those teams beating out UGA, UF, or UT for the Eastern spot in the Championship Game. This is ridiculous, ever since the SEC Championship began in 1992, only 3 teams from the east have ever played in it.

1992

FLORIDA - 21

Alabama - 28

1993

FLORIDA - 28

Alabama - 13

1994

FLORIDA - 24

Alabama - 23

1995

FLORIDA - 34

Arkansas - 3

1996

FLORIDA - 45

Alabama - 30

1997

TENNESSEE - 30

Auburn - 29

1998

TENNESSEE - 24

Miss. State - 14

1999

FLORIDA - 7

Alabama - 34

2000

FLORIDA - 28

Auburn - 6

2001

TENNESSEE - 20

LSU - 31

2002

GEORGIA - 30

Arkansas - 3

2003

GEORGIA - 13

LSU - 34

2004

TENNESSEE - 28

Auburn - 38

2005

GEORGIA - 34

LSU - 14

2006

FLORIDA - 38

Arkansas - 28

2007

TENNESSEE - 14

LSU - 21

Is it ever going to change? One would think that with the arrival of Steve Spurrier to South Carolina that it could in the near future, but I just don't ever see Kentucky or Vanderbilt winning the East.

I made a thread like this about two months ago, this thread contradicts the fact that everyone says the SEC good from top to bottom.

In the past the SEC wasn't good "from top to bottom" as is evidenced by the fact that the SEC Championship game was probably one more season away from being called the Florida-Alabama Championship Game. But definitely most recently this conference has been good "from top to bottom." It's really not hard to figure out, either.

LSU - Only 2 losses were to Kentucky and Arkansas

Florida - 3 of 4 losses came at the hands of Auburn, LSU, and Georgia

Georgia - Only two losses were to South Carolina and Tennessee

Tennessee - 3 of 4 losses came at the hands of Florida, Alabama, and LSU

That's the 4 best teams in the SEC and only 2 of them had one loss to someone NOT in the SEC.

Because your good teams lose to your bad teams does not make your conference better but worse actually.

yea umm every1 but you thinks the SEC is the best conf. either every1 is wrong or your stupid? im going with option 2. how many teams are in the big 10?? ive only heard of over hyped OSU, fighting illni( because of this season), and appy state losers Mich.

ive heard of mich state, but thats because my friend is a tard, and keeps hyping them up to me.

You make no sense of course you will not here about all the Big Ten team because you live in SEC territory.

That is like someone in the State of Michigan saying he has only heard about LSU, Florida and Georgia. Your argument makes no sense.

Read the thread all over again and than try and comment.

Possibly the fact that Kentucky, Vandy, Miss State, Arky, SC had decent-good teams? I think if you did a comparison of bottom feeders, SEC's would be the favorite to win almost all their matchups.

Seriously, the SEC is very good, the Pac 10 is solid, and the rest are terrible. UM played their hearts out yesterday, and hats of to them, but what's the big deal?

We're not claiming that our best teams are better than the top teams of other bcs conferences, just that we have more very good teams, and even the bottom feeders are solid teams....UT, UGA, UF, LSU, Bama, Au all expect to finish in the top 10-15 of recruiting every year......and the rest of the lower tier schools expect to finish in the top 50 at worst.....with that kind of talent, and the focus on offseason development and just how important college fb is in the south, there is no reason to believe that they aren't the deepest and best conference......just look at NFL players.

UM had to play three good teams all year, including the bowl games.....UGA played SC(who was pretty darn good before they starting getting all those injuries), UT(who just beat Wisconsin, and physically dominated the LOS....it was a close game, but it was clear who the better team was), Bama(again, they were good early in the year.....and outclassed the Big 12 team in their bowl. Auburn...(who just beat one the best teams from the ACC), UF(who admittedly layed an egg, but are very young, and playing against an inspired football team)

What kind of backwards logic is that? The point is is that there are not any flat out BAD teams in the SEC except for maybe Ole Miss and Vandy.

Because of the fact that all of the teams in the SEC have lost to each other most definitely means that this conference is THE BEST.

How in the blue **** did you spin that around to mean something completely different from what everyone else thinks?

Dont forget that Mississippi State had a good program during the 90's before they ran Jackie Sherrill out of town. They are still recovering from that.

South Carolina was pretty tough as an independent before they joined the SEC. I dont know what happen there.

Arkansas is wishy washy. They play outstanding ball one year and play mediocre the next. They need some consistency like they had back in the SWC days.

I believe whats hurting Ole Miss program is that they cant get away from their reputation from the past.

Kentucky and Vandy are a different story altogether.

speaking of vandy and ole miss, it won't be long til they have a very good year for each team.. bobby johnson is doing great with vandy IMO and houston nutt has a lot of talent at ole miss.  ed o may not be much of a coach, but he is a great recruiter and has done a very good job stocking up talent at ole miss.
