  • SEC football: Which is the best team?

    The Southeastern Conference is the most confusing that it has been for many years.  
    Teams that are always better than average are not very good. Teams that generally are not very good are better than usual and some teams can be put into both categories. Of course, there are the teams that are always good and are still good.
    One team is playing with an interim coach (Mississippi) and two coaches have already been fired (Florida and Tennessee).  
    The two teams without a coach have been the biggest underachievers in the league.
