If every big-time national college football program could be personified, the SEC would most certainly be the biggest kid on the block.
Not only is the conference enjoying a historically dominant run at the collegiate level, but the players the SEC has graduated to the NFL continue to dominate once on the world’s biggest sporting stages.
The 2013 Pro Bowl roster was announced early in the week, and SEC players made up a solid quarter of the 84 players on the NFL’s all-star team.
Fansided took the liberty of tallying how many players hail from each of the nation’s big-time conferences:
Big 12: 11
Big Ten: 8
Conference USA: 4
No, that does not add up to 84, but not every player on the list went to a school in the aforementioned conferences, now did they?
