Agreed! It ain't like the old days when OLs on the top ten teams all dominated their opponent. Just about every SEC team seems to send one DL to the pros every year. The line play in the SEC is at a very high level on both sides of the ball. You don't see many pancake blocks in the SEC because there are no pancakes on the defenses to block.
