I have much respect for you south i really do but have you seen some of the teams in the sec this year play?? The only teams i respect are kentucky florida and alabama. Mark my words LSU will finish in the top 5 in the SEC this year
I can definitely see where you are coming from. I agree that some teams have had some miserable performances...
Look at Vanderbilt losing to Marist 50-33 as just an easy example. I still am not sure if this team is ready to compete for the top 5 of the SEC. I could see us ahead of a few decent teams but there are more good teams than just Kentucky, Florida, and Alabama.
Ole Miss is gonna be very good this year. Missouri is not quite where they were last season, but still a quality team. I find that it will be tough to pass up Tennessee also. Pretty good team they have over there.
Besides those, its up in the air for most of the rest. That could leave us in 7th but I still think thats gonna be a few spots too high. But if we limit our turnovers and start hitting free throws, this team does have talent. Just not there yet.
