Here’s the year-by-year breakdown for those schools:

2013: Alabama 3, Auburn 1, Clemson 1, Florida 4, Florida State 3, Georgia 3, LSU 11, Ohio State 1, Oklahoma 3, Tennessee 4, USC 2

2014: Alabama 5, Auburn 2, Clemson 3, Florida 4, Florida State 4, Georgia 0, LSU 7, Ohio State 2, Oklahoma 0, Tennessee 1, USC 5

2015: Alabama 3, Auburn 1, Clemson 1, Florida 4, Florida State 5, Georgia 1, LSU 3, Ohio State 0, Oklahoma 2, Tennessee 0, USC 4

2016: Alabama 2, Auburn 2, Clemson 5, Florida 5, Florida State 1, Georgia 1, LSU 2, Ohio State 7, Oklahoma 2, Tennessee 1, USC 1

2017: Alabama 3, Auburn 1, Clemson 0, Florida 4, Florida State 2, Georgia 2, LSU 4, Ohio State 5, Oklahoma 3, Tennessee 3, USC 3

There’s no point in blaming future stars such as Beckham, Fournette and likely first-rounders Guice and Key for heading to the NFL, where their first contracts can be life-changing. But for Tigers fans, it’s still tempting to imagine the kind of teams LSU could have built if just a few more of their top players had decided to stick around for one more season at Tiger Stadium.
