10-2 this weekend. Home teams went 9-3. Totally did not see FSU taking Duke to the wire in Cameron. Teams like FSU have always had the athletes to play with the best, but never the execution. Miami is another team that is really coming along this year. After playing even in the first half, they pulled away in the second half. Next year and the Top 10 recruiting class that comes with it can’t get here soon enough for Paul Hewitt. Tennessee just keeps on rolling in the SEC.
The biggest surprise for me was Georgia upsetting Vanderbilt. If the Bulldogs get on a run here, the NCAA Tournament is not out of reach. Dennis Felton has done a magnificent job only one season after winning a total of 8 games and only 2 in the SEC.
I didn’t expect Kentucky to fade in the second half like they did. I was not surprised one bit how they remained even in the first half, but I thought it would remain that way until the very end.
LSU is the best team in the SEC West, but they are going to lose 2-3 more games in conference. Alabama has played much better since starting the SEC is now only one game back of the Tigers.
Rivalry Week is this week as Duke travels to Chapel Hill, Tennessee hits the road against Kentucky, and Arkansas meets LSU in Baton Rouge.
