So, who is the best team in the SEC? I don't know that I can answer that for you. Let's just say, no matter what, I do and will always support #DAWGNATION. What I've learned from being a devoted fan to an SEC team: no matter the numbers, the statistics or the standings, SEC fans are loyal to their team. Although I am very proud of Georgia, as they honestly aren't a bad team, I don't know who is the greatest team. It would kill me to praise Florida, but I have to give it to them. They've played in the most championship games and have had the most named MVPs. Bama came in hot with 10 championship games, seven named MVPs, and an almost perfect 2015 season. Bama also had seven drafted and three prospects, tying Georgia with five drafted and five prospects.

SEC teams, for the most part, are so comparable; it's hard to say who's the best. As stated above, I'm a die-hard Georgia fan, but I may root for Bama from time to time.

Who do you think is the best SEC team?

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.
