Fla and Georgia have produced some pretty good talent, but not enough to fill rosters for an SEC team on any given year. You are looking through years of data to find guys who placed at the NCAA's. Top tier D1 programs have talent and depth, and none of those SEC states produce even close to enough talent to fill a roster and be competitive. The SEC focuses on sports where they are always going to be in the picture for a national championship, and most of those sports have plenty of talent in their own backyard.
My father in law was an AD at a prominent southern school (D1) that used to sponsor wrestling. He was a fan of the sport, but said the travel and lack of a built in recruiting base were the reasons for axing the program. Title IX makes it even easier to justify.
I disagree. You could with wrestlers from the 2017-2018 season fill a team full of kids from Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas, Kentucky and Alabama. A team full of multiple NCAA qualifiers and probably an All American or two.
The entire SEC, ok, you have me there. But a team? A single team. Yes, easily. No problem at all.
