In a sport filled with traditions and history, no other conference in college football carries as much historical significance as the Southeastern Conference in its first 75 years. The SEC was formed in the 1930s on the heels of the depression and quickly took College Football by storm. By the 1940s the SEC flourished in "The New South" with Heisman Trophy winners and National Championship teams. The 1950s brought legendary coaches like Bear Bryant at Alabama to the league while the 1960s saw desegregation turn the league into the dominant national conference that it is today. The 1990s brought innovative systems like Steve Spurrier's fun'n gun passing offense to Florida.
