It didnt have anything to do with Manning... They actually got better when he first left.

You do realize that the Vols won the National Title in '98 AFTER Manning... and had they won the SEC Championship game in 2000 would have played in 2 in 3 years AFTER Manning...

I think Dooley will do pretty good at Tennessee,He's a darn good recruiter already(a number 10 recruiting class for 2011)

1. Florida
2. Tennessee
3. Auburn
4. South Carolina

My favorite "neutral" SEC rivalry these days is Alabama/LSU.

Alabama-Auburn is no doubt the best rivalry. I'm not just saying that because I'm a Bama fan.

Why do Alabama fans call Tennessee fans convicts? Is it a joke or something related to history on Tennessee's part?
Because of their colors. Prison outfits are orange. Tenn's colors are that ugly creamsicle orange.

To me the rivalry with Tennessee doesnt mean as much as it use to, now days the game with LSU usually has alot more on the line. (SEC and BCS title)

The best rivalry is whoever has the best teams at the time... 15 years ago Alabama vs Auburn was completely irrelevant. Actually the entire West conference was completely irrelevant. That includes LSU... and GA was irrelevant during that period as well. Now Tennessee is irrelevant. Florida and GA are in danger of being irrelevant too.

the best rivalry is all relative to who is good at the time...

Hooray for college football season! Here are my top SEC rivalries:

1. Auburn-Alabama: The Iron Bowl. The most intense rivalry in college football. And very relevant these days with the last two BCS champions.

2. Georgia-Florida: The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. Often decides the SEC East. This one is really streaky. Georgia has won more overall, but Florida has owned Georgia recently, winning like16 of the last 19. It is kind of cool that it is played in Jacksonville.

3. Alabama-Tennessee: The Third Saturday in October. These fan bases really dislike each other.

4. Auburn-Georgia: The Deep South's Oldest Rivalry. I think of this as a fairly classy rivalry with less hate than most of the big ones.

5. Ole Miss-Miss State: Egg Bowl. The biggest game of the year for each of the teams, but both of them are usually not highly ranked, so it isn't a big deal nationally.

6. Florida-Tennessee: This often decided the SEC East in the late 90's when Fulmer and Spurrier where in charge, but has cooled off a bit in recent years.

7. South Carolina-Georgia: Border Bash, this seems like an up and coming rivalry, especially with SC making its first appearance in the SECCG last year.

8. Auburn-LSU: Not a long rivalry, but this has produced some classics in the last twenty-five years and often decides the SEC West. The game I look forward to most each year.

9. LSU-Ole Miss: An old rivalry that has lost a lot of punch b/c Ole Miss isn't very competitive these days.


10. Alabama-LSU: Saban Bowl: Same division, traditional powers, but somehow I just never really thought much of this one until Saban bolted on LSU and later ended up at Bama.
