Listing every SEC title, postseason appearance for Alabama athletics since 1970

This took forever to compile and organize, believe me. But it’s about the only way to quantify success for a given athletics season. So we looked at every one since 1970 at it related to Alabama to go with today’s print story.

First, a few rules. Bowl games and NCAA tournament invitations count for postseason appearances for most sports. For sports like swimming and track that don’t get team invites to the NCAAs, top-10 finishes were counted.

SEC regular reason and tournament titles were counted the same in this listing. A brief key: PS = postseason, NC = national championship. Here’s the 2011-12 season as a an example with all the others found by clicking to read more below.
