I sure hope somebody brings this Jon Solomon article to Steve Spurrier’s attention.
SEC divisions played out remarkably balanced since expansion in 1992. The East won two more SEC titles than the West; the West won one more head-to-head game against the East per year.
“It probably tells you things are cyclical in nature,” Womack said. “If you charted it by five-year increments, you’d probably see a swing back and forth between the two divisions. What you want to see is some parity in both divisions over time.”
Of course, Spurrier isn’t working in a five-year increment these days, but for the rest of us, the SEC’s competitive balance between the divisions has been impressive.
