Ranking the best SEC coaches of the past decade is a tough task with many factors to consider, but Nick Saban is an easy choice for the top spot.
No surprise here: Nick Saban and Urban Meyer, who have combined for six national championships in the past 10 seasons while in the SEC, top this list.
Some will have playoff implications. Some feature a team that needs to finally shut up its rival. Others might save a coach's job. Here are the games that have a little extra meaning in 2016.
The SEC is usually known for its elite front-sevens on defense and while the defensive line is where it all starts, linebackers are almost as equally important.
While many aren't sold on Florida's offense, coach Jim McElwain seems pretty pleased with where things stand now.
We will see two storied programs competing with playoff implications already on the table when Alabama and USC face off in Week 1.

Grady Jarrett (97) sat out Falcons' OTAs while Adrian Clayborn (99) held helmet most the day. Nickel pass rush group was Vic Beasley, Brooks Reed on edges with Derrick Shelby, Jonathan Babineaux on interior. Rookies Keanu Neal, Deion Jones ran with 2nd team all day.
From QBs to linemen to a linebacker and running back, these are the guys who are keys to their teams' success in 2016.
The usual suspects make an appearance, but so do sleepers like Tennessee and Oklahoma State. Sorry, Iowa, don't expect a 2015 repeat.
While cases can be made for Vernon Hargreaves III, Johnthan Banks and a host of Bama players, there's no one you can knock off the list of top SEC DBs.
Any top-five list will generate controversy, but Ole Miss' Patrick Willis was a big omission from our rundown of the best SEC LBs of the past decade.
Who will be QB for Florida?
It sure looks like Luke Del Rio especially after an impressive spring game performance. Kyle Trask may have the arm talent, but he's still not likely to make a worthy run at the job this offseason. Ranking QB battles (Insider)
Notre Dame and Alabama lead the nation's top post-springcollege football quarterback battles.
The coaching carousel looks to have finally stopped in the SEC. So now is a good time to look back at all the new hires since the end of last season.
Alabama has built a defensive dynasty, so it's no surprise that the Tide lead the ESPN Football Power Index's top 10 projected defenses for 2016. They have SEC company at the top, though.
The five-star tackle is sticking by his Alabama commitment but likes Florida and will take official visits.
A peek at the biggest games on the schedule in 2016 includes what should be another great Alabama-LSU matchup.
Not every team named a starting quarterback coming out of spring, and that's because it's about winning the locker room and not the QB job.
Playmakers on offense are a huge key for Jim McElwain's recruitings efforts this spring.
