SEC schools cashed in over the past year.

According to Brett McMurphy, every SEC school got paid $43.1 million, and that doesn’t even include any money from bowl games.

Look, I’m as big of a critic of the SEC as you’re going to find on this planet, but even I can admit that business is booming down south.

There’s no doubt about that at all. The SEC might be insanely overrated as a conference, but they don’t struggle making cash. (RELATED: Clemson Beats Alabama For National Title)

That’s a fact, my friends. It also doesn’t hurt to have Nick Saban and Alabama in the conference.

Now, we’ll see if any other team other than Alabama is capable of making some news next season. It really just has been the Crimson Tide’s show the past few years, and I’m not sure that’ll be ending anytime soon.

Saban’s squad is simply on a different level, they have the most national presence and I doubt that’ll be changing anytime soon.

Life is good down south, and there’s plenty of money to go around. I’m sure the numbers will only go up in 2019.
