Congratulations to UGA for capturing 4 NCAA titles!

The SEC had 10 schools finish in the top 50 of the annual Sears Directors' Cup rankings, which recognizes the top athletics programs each year.

But this site is mostly about football... The SEC sent an NCAA-record eight teams to postseason bowls each of the last two years. The SEC also ended the 1999 season with another NCAA-leading statistic, 7 ranked teams in the final poll (sorry Big-10).

If you’re thinking about trying to get cute and manipulate the numbers so the Big-12 looks like a stronger conference, you best spend your time elsewhere...

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. We’d like to thank the Big-12, the WAC, and the Mountain West Conferences for making us feel great about our conference title game. Don’t forget who started the trend... The same conference that headlines "Championship Saturday" by holding the coveted night-spot on ABC...
