When you look at the talent returning throughout the SEC it's clear that there are many teams who could compete for the title. For the sake of this throwdown I will stick to three teams from the SEC west Alabama, Arkansas, and LSU. Arkansas returns a good experienced quarterback a decent defense along with the return of Knile Davis a very good rb who missed this year due to a knee injury. Davis was last seen leading the SEC in rushing in 2010. LSU will return most of a tea which ran through the toughest regular season schedule I have seen in quite some time granted they lose the Qb and a few key defense players, but lets face LSU simply reloads. Plus it could said that quaterback play held them back this season. Alabama returns all, but one offensive lineman a starting qb who is emerging as a star, and the best coach in the college game today. Alabama defense will be missing a lot of faces from the BCS championship game, but with that coaching staff I can't see them falling off that far.
With my teams set I will state that a undefeated are one loss team from the SEC will get a shot at the title. The only loss in a BCS title game the SEC has suffered was to another SEC team.

All you did was talk about 3 teams in the SEC instead of giving any respect at all to teams in other conferences that are also returning lots of starters.
You compared nothing, you just talked about your precious SEC. You dont change minds like that. You just make SEC supporters look very stupid.
If you have no respect for other teams out there, its pointless to say anything to somebody like you because you are stuck in a mentality. You assume reloads but dont look at some other factors. Offensive players that are 5 star recruits are gonna wanna go where they can shine and make a name for themself.
With your teams set, what does that mean?
If your team loses, you still call it a win because it is another SEC team. Get a life.
2 of the 3 teams you talked about still wont have a reliable QB.
The SEC is stacked always but so what, you said nothing.

Why would I give respect to other teams when my argument is for the SEC. True USC could be a challenge among other teams, but I have 1200 characters to make my argument so I won't waste the space talking about them.
LSU, and Alabama are currently ranked in the top five incoming recruiting classes by rivals.com so that must mean some players wanted to go to those schools. I would also like to know which 2 of my teams won't have a reliable qb Tyler Wilson, and AJ McCarron seem like solid starters to me. Also if you want to see what saying nothing is then reread your argument it is the definition of saying nothing I think I might be under your skin.
Here are some more reasons why I think the SEC gets to 7 championships in a row all three of my chosen teams are currently in the top 5 of si.com's early preseason rankings. If you know anything at all about the bcs you know that preseason ranking do play into outcome even though I can't understand why. Also the SEC's contract with ESPN grantees that the SEC tams will remain in the national spotlight which never hurts with the flawed system used to determine the national champ.
All said things are going the SEC's way right now.

You wasted 2400 characters, not 1200 characters.
Thanx for admitting u have no respect for any teams not in the SEC. It proves u are just bias and full of it, and u didn't even look at other teams for comparison purposes.
You dont even know which 2 teams that you talked about don't have a reliable quarterback, so you dont even study your teams. Thanx again for wasting everybody's time.
Go back on si.com and tell us the other 2 teams in the top 5. You think they have no chance and you admit you no respect for them, well thats ignorant.
You can't understand why the preseason rankings do come into play so dont bring it up next time.
If my team gets knocked out, I dont bandwagon jump onto the whole conference just to try and give myself a ego boost, grow up.
good luck with the voting against me in my soccer throw down. ur gonna need it.

I never said I have no respect for any other team I said I wasn't going to argue against myself why talk about teams who could win unless there in the SEC.
Now on to the qb's again: Tyler Wilson Arkansas 23rd rated passer 24td 6int 63.2 completion percentage AJ McCarron Alabama 26th rated passer 16td 5int 66.8 completion percentage. If those 2 aren't decent qb's you have very high standards.
You accepted a throwdown entitled sec will win it's seventh straight title but yet you make no argument other than i'm bias even if I am that's not a argument. Obviously i'm bias not only to my team but my region. Why not try making a point against me instead of crying about my opinion.
And you are correct I have no clue why there is a preseason ranking at all every year there are highly rated teams that don't deserve the ranking so why not letteams play a few games before making a desicion
I'l giveyou credit for making it hard on me by presenting no argument other than me being bias I would have liked to rebuke your arguments, but you refuse to make any. Instead you just make your childish comments,but I would love to hear why preseason rankings have bearing on the outcome of the seaon
