There are some SEC fans who know about this, many shrug it off, but when a team gets what equals an extra recruiting class every four years there is no doubt it gives them a vast advantage over teams who find this practice unethical.
That's what irkes alot of fans. I do have alot of respect for Georgia coach Mark Richt. He has been an outspoken opponent of oversigning and I feel bad for a guy who does it the right way but can't get ahead in his own conference because scumbags like Saban and Miles continue to oversign.
As an SEC apologist, I have no problem with oversigning as long as it's within NCAA guidelines. If not then they deserve to be hammered by the NCAA. If the SEC is playing within the rules then kudos to them for doing all they can to play top notch football. Having been to colleges in both the SEC and the Big Ten, I can vouch for the fact that football is more important in the south and they'll go to all lengths to get ahead. No question
