There is at least one thing in which the SEC is the undisputed champion of all conferences and it isn't arrests nor recruiting violations (thank God for Ohio State and FSU). For the 25th consecutive year, the SEC led all conferences in attendance this past season, bringing 5,593,699 fans through the turnstyles. Lest you blame this success on larger staduims, the SEC has led in percentage of attendance as well since the statistic began being kept in 1983 (97.43 percent last year). If only they could track liquor consumption by fans attending games, the SEC would have yet another reason to pat itself on the back.

A typical SEC home game is loud, crowded and smells of alcohol.
