SEC To Have 25 Representative In The Super Bowl

I have been on a big West Wing kick since discovering the show for the first time a month ago, so let me begin with a President Bartlet quote (or a paraphrasing of one – I can’t find the exact wording.)  “My father always said, when deciding which football team to bet on, pick the team with more Notre Dame players.”  At least I think that’s a Bartlet quote.  To be fair it seems to be a little too concise and not condescending enough to be one.

Anyways, Notre Dame’s downfall nonwithstanding, the theory could use some amending.  Both Superbowl teams this year find themselves employing a good amount of SEC talent – and both beat a team with lesser SEC talent this past weekend.  Green Bay has 14 players/coaches from 8 SEC schools (including Tim Masthay from Kentucky,) beating out the Bears 11 (though three were from Vanderbilt, so I dunno if they should count.)  The Steelers have 11 players/coaches from 7 schools and they beat the Jets 4 (5 if you count Erik Ainge on reserve… which you shouldn’t.)

The only two SEC schools unrepresented in the Superbowl will be Vanderbilt and South Carolina.

From the SEC website:

GREEN BAY PACKERS
Chad Clifton, OT, Tennessee
Matt Flynn, QB, LSU
Brett Goode, LS, Arkansas
Howard Green, DE, LSU
Justin Harrell, DT, Tennessee
Quinn Johnson, FB, LSU
Donald Lee, TE, Mississippi State
Pat Lee, CB, Auburn
Tim Masthay, P, Kentucky
Charlie Peprah, SS, Alabama
Scott Wells, C, Tennessee
Jarius Wynn, DE, Georgia
Joe Whitt, Jr., Secondary/Cornerbacks Coach, Auburn
Kevin Greene, Outside Linebackers Coach, Auburn

PITTSBURGH STEELERS
Ryan Clark, FS, LSU
Ramon Foster, OG, Tennessee
Anthony Madison, CB, Alabama
Maurkice Pouncey, C, Florida
Chris Scott, OT, Tennessee
DeShea Townsend, CB, Alabama
Justin Vincent, RB, LSU
Mike Wallace, WR, Ole Miss
Hines Ward, WR, Georgia
John Mitchell, Assistant Head Coach/Defensive Coordinator, Alabama
Amos Johnes, Assistant Special Teams Coach, Alabama

So in short – Packers win. Good game everybody, nothing left to see here.
