Jones loves the SEC's dominance

If Alabama beats Notre Dame on Monday, the SEC will have taken home the last seven national titles. Barrett Jones knows people are tired of the conference's dominance, but he doesn't care one bit.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.—Those who don't live or cheer for the teams in SEC country are growing tired of the conference's dominance in college football.

The Southeastern Conference boasts the last six national titles and if Alabama beats Notre Dame on Monday, the number plumps to seven. Not to mention the Tide will have won three national championships in the last four years and two in a row. The last non-SEC team to win the national title was Texas in 2005.

At Alabama's BCS Media Day at Sun Life Stadium Saturday morning, center Barrett Jones was asked what he thinks of the majority of the country rooting against the Crimson Tide because they're bored of the SEC.

"Let's be honest, people are probably getting tired of us," he said. "That's all right, we don't really mind. We enjoy being the top dog and enjoy kind of having that target on our back. We love our conference. Obviously we'd rather not be a part of any other conference."
