SEC presidents take official stance

By Chris Low

As expected, the SEC presidents are firmly behind their coaches, athletic directors and their commissioner.

They favor a national playoff that includes the best four teams and one that doesn't give preferential treatment to conference champions.

That announcement came Friday as the SEC spring meetings wrapped up in Destin, Fla.

And at least one of the SEC presidents, Florida's Bernie Machen, is pretty confident that the SEC will get its wish when everything is finalized this month.

Check out this quote from Machen: "I think that’s what the public wants (the best four teams). So I think everyone is going to have to come to us on that."
