Why? Many of them aren't playing tough OOC schedules (there's no real incentive to anyways). Some of them ran their records up with weak schedules early and then lost against tougher competition or split. Georgia and Alabama could end the reg season with just 1 top 25 win a piece (the CCG would add another if either was to win). You have to take it on a case-by-case basis and not just generalize a conference. Outside of their win over Florida, Georgia's wins are a whole lot of 'so what'.
