Nine out of the 12 SEC teams had winning seasons. That's pretty good. In conference play, there were clearly tiers of teams. Florida, Georgia, LSU, Alabama, A&M. Then, coming down to South Carolina and a suprising Vanderbilt. Then you just had some teams that did not match up at all in the SEC, like Arkansas, Kentucky, Auburn, Missouri, and Tennessee. But even those bottom tier teams were 14-6 when playing outside the conference.
