Inspired by the Realignment board: what are the core schools of the SEC??
An ACC fan (UVA to be exact) said that the SEC had only two core schools: Georgia and Alabama. I disagreed with him and said that there were at least seven if not more SEC schools that could be considered "core schools." What are you guys opinion on this??

People tend to think very superficially when they discuss things like this.

They look at the TV and say "hmm, Alabama and Georgia are the best football teams right now. They must be the only schools in the conference that really matter."

At that point, you can safely ignore most anything that person says.

I assume this stems from the PAC and Big 12 being so shaky after only two schools left. I agree that we have at least half the conference that is so solid that losing a few members would not be debilitating. I think the ones that would hurt the most are LSU, Arkansas, and Missouri because they are built like many midwestern flagship schools. After them, there is a massive dropoff to the second best school option. Every other current state has either a great or pretty decent second best (in Florida's case, they go several deep). In other words, if we lost LSU, Arkansas, or Missouri, we basically lose the state.

Simple, the ten remaining founding schools, no exceptions.

From my outsider’s perspective, based on how “SEC” a school seems to me:

Core:
100% - Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Mississippi, Mississippi St, Tennessee
99% - Kentucky, Vanderbilt

Non-Core:
67% - Arkansas, South Carolina, Texas A&M
33% - Oklahoma, Texas
20% - Missouri

Alabama,Auburn, Georgia,Florida, LSU, Tennessee, Kentucky are the long term Money core of the SEC. Others have had their moments but these are the schools that have carried the SEC Banners of Championships for decades

In basketball and football, yes, but throw in baseball and you may have to add alot more! The Miss schools, Vandy, and South Carolina have all won it since 2010.

I would not base it on school sizes, revenue assets, and certain athletic W-L records. Who has the largest endowments, the most overall athletic wins, or who are the leaders in attendance and/or TV viewership, are different questions.

I’d define it as the remaining charter members.

I believe JRsec is saying similar in referencing “original”.

I'd say that SEC core schools are the 10 that have been there for 90 years now. Of those, you could argue that the strongest are schools with relatively recent SEC or National Titles, so Bama, LSU, UF, UGA, Auburn, and Tennessee. I feel like A&M is integrating well, and we're making progress on the field, but we will be viewed as interlopers for another decade or 2 most likely. OU will integrate well, but again will probably take a couple decades before they're viewed as "core". Not sure about texas, we all want them to integrate (including me), but they will always have a large block who feel they should have joined the Pac or B1G. I'm hopeful and optimistic that they will, but it might take them a bit longer than the others.

Somebody trying to say that the SEC is just UGA and Bama has an awfully short memory, it was just 2.5 yrs ago that LSU had perhaps the best team in the history of CFB, and LSU and UF have 5.5 titles between them in the past 25 yrs.
