Matt Hayes is flummoxed about many things. Evidently one of those is understanding the cyclical nature of college football. Two seasons ago, the SEC was flooded with talented quarterbacks. Poor ol’ Matt can’t figure out what happened last year.
Welcome to the story of SEC regression: the league doesn’t have it where it matters most. In this era of college football where elite quarterbacks win championships, the 14-team monster conference has one quarterback of significance.
It’s not like they sign long-term contracts, dude. And even you seem to have glommed on to the existence of a source to replenish talent called recruiting. It’ll cycle around.
Of course, when it does, all the great running backs now in the conference will probably have moved on to the NFL. I guess that’ll give you the next inspiration for a column.
