Pretty sure LSU would be above UT because of higher overall record, but below UGA because LSU lost. I could be reading the tiebreaker rules incorrectly, though.

In that 3 way tie, UGA is 2-0, UT is 0-1 and LSU is 0-1. What puts UT on top of LSU.

We'd still play each other if it ended today


If we landed the 6 seed I could see us making a deep run

Overall records do not go into the tiebreaker... Im glad too.

Both of us lost to UGA, but they beat the 2nd ranked SEC team in Bama.

It all changes after tomorrow. Im not too worried about tie breakers at this point, but if Im gonna post brackets, I might as well do it right.

That's an odd qualifier, but ok.

It really will be interesting to see how all the seeds turnout. I mean I'm pretty confident Alabama will get a top 4 seed but anything can happen. We did lose to some awful teams this year

It's best record versus the best... then 2nd best... then 3rd best... etc.

I think JOBs surge has been from practicing against john odo. Anyone else think this.

That's definitely a factor. He's also healthy now, and not so tentative (not as concerned about re-injury?).
But an often overlooked reason is Anthony Hickey. I know that Hick has been a relentless motivator for JOB, they had a pact pre-season to get in as best shape as poss, for e.g.

By running the offense consistently, getting passes to JOB, or setting others' up to pass to him, Anthony has made Johnny more confident and look for pass/get in position.

So the team is finally implementing the offense. That helps!

It's exciting to see
