Long answer: I also think so. 'Bama might still be King, but there doesn't appear to be much separation between South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, and LSU. They are all good football teams and will spend the next few weeks beating the hell out of each other. And as Kentucky showed that they can be semi-competitive against South Carolina, the only team that doesn't look capable of winning is Arkansas. The Razorbacks aren't crap... they have a lot more talent than most bottom-dwellers, but they have no coaching/leadership. Everyone else is somewhere between. We'll see how it shakes out but I think the East has clearly added quality on their side while the West has lost some quality on theirs.
