    I just noticed a tweet from Aaron Suttles—writer for Tuscaloosa News/Tidesports (Rivals.com affiliate.)

    As it currently stands, four SEC West teams in the top eight in team rankings and total of seven SEC teams in Top 10. Insane - Aaron Suttles 12:37 PM - 5 Feb 2014

    2 or 3 of the best teams in the country could come out of the SEC West, but I bet only one ever gets into the playoffs . . .

    I think 7 of the top ten 247 composite recruits went to the sec west.

    When ESPN was scrolling the recruiting top 10 rankings last night, it looked like the damn SEC rankings. Even frickin' TENNESSEE showed-up and cracked the top 10. Big. Boy. Football.

    I've got a little more faith in this committee than you, but you very well may be right.

    IF they do leave out a deserving second team, I'd bet it only happens once. As much as we hear about "SEC fatigue," I've got a suspicion they (committee members) wouldn't deal well with the backlash they'd hear for months on end.

    The sad thing is—and I see it as realistic scenario—we might see a SECW team with two losses that's arguably one of those four best teams in the country.

    According to ESPN: 7 teams in the SEC out-recruited Notre Dame, Michigan, USC, Oklahoma and Texas.

    7! That's half of our conference.

    Kevin Sumlin on recruiting: "We had a great year. The only problem is we were fourth in the country and third in our own division."

    SEC signs 115 of ESPN's top 300 players. ACC is next closest with 51.
