2010 SEC Predictions

Posted By Adrian Fedkiw On Aug 31 2010 @ 3:10 pm In SEC | No Comments

Can the best conference in the country produce a national champion for the 5th consecutive season?  That’s the big question heading into the season as Alabama tries to repeat.  I guess you can say Florida is rebuilding after the graduation of Tim Tebow, one of the best quarterbacks in college football history.  So, let’s focus on these two.  Can either get to Atlanta for the SEC title game undefeated?  My answer is, doubtful.  Alabama plays in the SEC West, a division bombarded with top caliber competition such as Auburn, LSU, Arkansas and Ole Miss.  For Florida, I think the inexperience of Brantley will put an end to their National Title aspirations.

As for the individuals in the conference, can Mark Ingram repeat as a Heisman Trophy winner, and can Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallet challenge for the Heisman?
