All alone in first place in the SEC. Can they keep it up?--Anchor of Gold

Arkansas Expats

Saturday's win against Vanderbilt was the Hogs' most impressive performance in at least two years. Can it be the start of something? There are reasons to think it can.--Arkansas Expats


Holy hand grenades, Batman. The other night my wife changed the channel on the television to The Biggest Loser. It took me 10 minutes to figure out that the overweight people crying uncontrollably were not the home crowd at an Auburn basketball game, and that the title of the show wasn't what Lincoln Financial is now calling the SEC West game of the week. Then the Aubbies beat South Carolina on the road by 15. I do not know how to process this. It was like watching a dachsund play Moonlight Sonata on the tuba. Do. Not. Understand. That being said, it's gonna take a lot more than that to make me forget Tony Barbee's squad losing to Campbell and Jacksonville.--Dawg Sports


Gators got a huge win at Georgia Tuesday but couldn't follow it up against Miss State.  That's been the story of Billy Donovan since the back to back titles.--ACC & SEC Blog


Can't win the close games in conference that they won in non-conference play.--Alabama Basketball Blog


The fact that a tremendously flawed Kentucky team is considered by most to be the best in the SEC says a lot about the conference.--Alabama Basketball Blog


There's losing, and then there's averaging 52 points per game in league play.--Rocky Top Talk

Mississippi St.

Beat UF and seems to be gaining steam.--Leftover Hot Dog

Ole Miss

Only one win in conference, and Kentucky coming up next.  Caught between the devil and the Big Blue Nation.--A Sea of Blue

South Carolina

Young and foolish, just see the loss to Auburn for evidence.--Leftover Hot Dog


Has the ship been righted in Knoxville?--Roll Bama Roll


RPI is really high, but two of their three SEC wins are against the state of Mississippi.--Rocky Top Talk
