      IIRC, LSU was ranked 6th in preseason SEC Media Days Poll. Kentucky was first. I don’t believe either. I believe LSU has easiest schedule in the league. I like LSU to win followed by Auburn, Arkansas and Kentucky. Any of these 4 can win SEC.

      I would have Auburn, UK, and Tennessee all above LSU. They look to me like a round of 32 team, sweet sixteen at the most.

      After reviewing each team’s conference schedule Tennessee has the weakest one of all the contenders. That likely puts them in the Top 3. I’m just not impressed with any of their wins to date.

      Others have a better grasp on this than I do, and I appreciate your thoughts, but from the outside looking in, it looks like a potential bloodbath for the top spot.

      Just saw Lunardi has 8 SEC teams in the NCAA tournament in his latest bracketology.

      I think those rankings are fair right now, but I do believe Kentucky is playing like a top 5 team in the country.

      My top SEC teams:
      UK/Auburn
      Tennessee
      Alabama
      LSU
      Huge drop off

      Kentucky's last two games indicate a lot higher. We keep seeing that play, and we'll blow those numbers out of the water. I agree they seem fair right now, taking the season as a whole, though.

      I think 14-4 would win the regular season outright this year. Maybe even 13-5.

      Obviously, I want Kentucky to go 18-0 and win it. But from a competitive standpoint, it could capture our interest all year and there may be multiple teams challenging. I think you're right on your numbers, too. Will depend on how the "lesser" SEC teams compete, too.

      If we go 13-5 in the SEC, lose at Kansas and do not win the SECT, we would have 9 losses on Selection Sunday. Historically, that would put us in the 4-5 seed line. Historically, we "ain't" winning the title seeded that low.

      Conversely, if we go 14-4 in the SEC, DO win the SECT and win at Kansas, we would have 6 losses and would be no worse than a 2 seed.

      Great point(s). Re-enforces my often stated belief EVERY game matters. We are way more successful as a 1-2 seed than lower levels.

      Keep saying it that UK needs a higher seed and it will eventually sink eventually.

    Re: SUP 2022 Standings

    Like finishing with 6 wins, seems like 4 in a row to finish so good year.

    Re: SUP 2022 Standings

    Kind of makes up for how bad I was last year. One thing I did differently was to try not to pick teams with very little chance of winning, no matter
