COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Paul Finebaum was in town Friday to promote his book "My Conference Can Beat Your Conference:  Why the SEC Still Rules College Football."

Paul held a book signing at Books-A-Million at Peachtree Mall.

Here's the short answer to why the SEC is crushing the competition:

"The most important thing I think was in 1992 when they started a conference championship game," Paul explained. "That separated the SEC from everyone else, and then it grew. In 2003 when Saban won a national championship at LSU, and then Auburn nearly won one the next year -- should have won one, and then Tebow, and then it was on with Saban going to Alabama, Les Miles, then Cam Newton, and it doesn't seem like it's ever going to stop."
