Monday, Sports Illustrated released an interesting list of what it believes is the 10-best college football programs of all-time. In response, many around the college football world have been revealing how their rankings would look.
Peter Burns of the SEC Network was asked to rank all the programs from the Southeastern Conference on Tuesday morning. He took a shot.
Burns made sure to note that this was his “first quick pass” at the rankings. Still, it’s an interesting list to debate.
Burns has Alabama at No. 1, which isn’t really arguable. He has Tennessee at No. 2 – which is where the controversy will likely begin. The Volunteers have an incredible history, but they haven’t really been a national title contender for two decades now.
Fans of Mississippi State and Missouri might have a gripe too. Check it out:
My 1st quick pass at these rankings:
9) South Carolina
10) Ole Miss
12) Mississippi State
Which did I get wrong? https://t.co/LZJtqCHgsh

You’re never going to please every fan base when you release a list like this. That said, there isn’t too much here to get up in arms about.
SEC fans – does Burns have it right?
