This dude is LUCKY his team had one of the easiest schedules in the SEC. And/or the SEC just plain sucked this year compared to most seasons which everyone except SEC homers can see.

Heck, I'm a SEC homer and I saw it. Things drop off like a rock after Bama, LUS and Arky. The East definitely sucked, and I dunno how long it'll be before the sides balance again.

Top-heavy is more the word I would consider correct, but I won't argue that the conf, looked at on the whole, was not as good as usual.

As an LSU fan, I have always thought of Richt as a first class guy and a good coach. The SEC is tough. Georgia has some pretty petty fans.....They have a wonderful school and a good football team. Maybe they could fire the fans....

Given how youthful UGA was this year I bet they have another bit of luck coming thier way in 2012.
