the SEC has won 8 national titles. LSU, Alabama, Auburn and Florida have all won at least one. It's the most talent-rich region in America, rivaling (or perhaps surpassing) the abundance of talent out of the Midwest decades ago. In 13 years at UGA, one could argue that among all SEC teams, Richt has had more talent year to year than any other program (remember Alabama wasn't so great before Saban and Auburn, Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina, etc., have had down periods). In 13 years with all that talent, including numerous all americans and high NFL draft picks, coaching and recruiting in one of the five or so most talent rich states in the US, Mark Richt has as many titles as Kelly, Weis, Willingham, and Davie.
On the flip side, many UGA alums and fans would gladly pay his moving expenses to South Bend.
