Mailbag: SEC loaded with quarterbacks
Olin Buchanan is the senior college football writer for Rivals.com. He will be working all summer to get you ready for the start of Fall practice.Want to start an argument?
Start a list of the Southeastern Conference's best quarterbacks, and sit back and wait for the debate to begin.
The insults won't be far behind, either.
SEC fans are always intense, and with the 2007 season looking like a wide-open race – especially in the Eastern Division – the intensity may be ratcheted up a notch. Fans are ready to pounce if they feel their players and teams have been overlooked.
At least one of the reasons the SEC should be so competitive is because so many experienced quarterbacks return. That's ironic because most observers view LSU as the favorite to win the conference championship and the Tigers are among the very few teams that will have a new starting quarterback.
Tennessee, South Carolina, Auburn, Alabama and even Kentucky have proven quarterbacks returning, so they cannot be completely dismissed.
Oh yeah, Georgia, too. Anyone omitting Georgia should be prepared to duck. Bulldogs fans are among the first to pounce.
