Hey, remember when the SEC used the cover of its 2011 media guide to oh-so-subtly remind the rest of college football which conference had won the previous five national titles? Now that that number has been bumped up one more notch, they're letting the fans officially get in on the fun--not that SEC fans have ever needed the encouragement.
That encouragement nonetheless arrived Tuesday with the appearance of this t-shirt in the SEC's official Internet store:
On the one hand, we'd wonder why Alabama fans would wear a t-shirt that also commemorates Auburn's 2010 title, LSU fans one reminding them of their crushing loss to the Tide this past January as well as their 2007 championship, Georgia fans one that reflects a pair of Florida titles, etc. And it's pretty much impossible to wear this as a fan of, say, Kentucky and not be accused of coattail-riding, isn't it?
On the other, these are SEC fans we're talking about, and you never know when you might wind up planning a trip to Columbus, Austin, or Eugene. So: expect them to sell like hot cakes.
