Posted on 02/01/2014 6:24:17 PM PST by FlJoePa
Did you know that the SEC has the most players in this seasons Super Bowl?
Yes, college footballs most dominant conference has 31 players dotted among Seattle and Denvers rosters. This gives it an eight-player advantage over the second-place finisher Pac-12, according to Jon Solomon of AL.com.
Its yet another notch in the SECs big, bad belt.
Since the Super Bowl has been going on for almost 50 yearsway longer than the SECs current reigncould it be that teams from other conferences are the real all-time leaders?
To answer this, we scoured Pro-Football References Super Bowl rosters for all 48 games in history.

The joke is the SEC and Pac12 never play each other in bowl games.
The two best conferences don’t play each other.
An ex-Wisconsin player will have a huge impact on the game.
I’d be more interested in the football programs that produces the most graduates.
The first Super Bowl was in 1967.
A much more accurate rating would be which teams or conferences have the most players in the NFL.
I know the MVP of the first three Superbowls were all QBs from Alabama.
It will be up to the schools now records now. Let the bitching begin that the SEC and PAC 12 dominate the playoffs probably at least 2 teams every year. Those conferences will also have more money to pay the players.
It’s all about the U!
The PAC 12 was good this year but they aren’t the second best league
If you add Nebraska Colorado Missouri, and Texas am the big 12 would be number 1
And don’t forget “The Snake”
That would be the PAC-12.
Stabler was maybe the most accurate passer ever. He could throw the long ball and put it right on the money just about every time.
Who spent most of his career at Maryland (?), NC State(?). Anyway he’s a really good player. Peyton wins but still b a good game.
The FCS school players would most likely have played in the SEC if they qualified academically. Seeing how bad the SEC schools are in academics, that is really a sad state of affairs.
He could run too!
They’ve played a few games in the last decade or so. SEC seems to win more than they lose.
Maybe they could drum up more games if they moved the Rose Bowl back to the Southeast. Of course, last time they did that, the game was against a Southern Conference team, not an SEC team.
This is not a hockey thread!
I always trick people when I ask them how many NFL Championships the Minnesota Vikings won.
Most will say “none”, because they know they lost all four SBs they played in.
But they actually did win the last pre-merger NFL Championship.
My favorite Vikings trivia question: When they traded Tarkington to the Giants, who did they trade him for?
That would, I believe, would be Penn State, even before they were Big 10.
If you mean the four draft picks the Vikings received for Tarkington, that’s an easy one. If you want to know who those draft picks turned out to be, that would take more research.
One of the most frustrating things about having lived for all XLVIII games is the trivia I remember that is tough to verify.
Case in point: As Max McGee crossed BEHIND the goalpost to haul in the first “Super Bowl” score, I distinctly heard the announcer mention that Max McGee had been a jet pilot. Years later, when I mentioned this on a radio call-in show, Will McDonough (the late/famous Boston Globe sportswriter) told me I was probably wrong.
It took me years of searching on the internet to verify this fact. By then, both McGee and McDonough had died.
1967 seems so long ago!
I recall it being called super bowl from jump street
I was there..10 years old....played football myself then..watching with former Giant....my father........seeing..Bart Starr....Paul Horning.....Otis ...
Packers of course won and Vince ruled....a real coach
And it was called Super Bowl by everyone
I thought I read U of Iowa was tops or near the top in graduates.
Lol, and I am not a hockey fan. Too funny!
“10 years old, huh?,”
Man, he is a kid!
Paul Hornung, always a favorite even if he did play for the mackerel snappers.
Yeah, he is a kid!
And, BTW, Paul Hornung is a faithful RC.
That’s why his mom made him attend that University!
