The SEC preseason was picked to be a power. In addition to UK...Vanderbilt, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi State were all Top 25 teams. But at the mid-point of the season, things aren't looking so hot.
Vandy has suffered losses to Cleveland State and Indiana State while beating Marquette. Bama hasn't done anything. The Gators lost at Rutgers and Tennessee (who is awful this season). Add in a Bulldogs squad that lost to Akron and Arkansas and things are looking grim for the conference yet again.
