In other SEC News...

Missouri loses at home Eastern Illinois who has an RPI of 258.

These are the kind of losses that keep the SEC with only 3-4 teams getting bids. Seems like we have them every year. Can’t have power 5 teams coming into conference with a 250+ RPI, lowering everybody else’s RPI.

Misery is not good. Their RPI is in the 240s anyway. I can’t imagine they’ll be too patient with Kim Anderson, even with the mess Frank Haith left him.

He’s toast. I saw the Post Dispatch Mizzou writer calling for his head a few weeks ago. They didn’t draw a very good crowd when AZ came to Columbia.

They are getting what they deserve for hiring Haith, (who was left with a 30-win roster) and trashing MA.

I get many of them being mad that MA left but they didn’t handle it at all and Haith is a scumbag.

Yup. On both counts.

Misery is even worse than Moo U and Moo U is pretty bad. Put it this way: UCA is 1-10 and its RPI is better than Misery. Five of the 14 SEC teams are outside the top 100 RPI at the moment, and we’re getting far enough into the schedule that RPI is starting to have some validity.

Right now Florida has the best RPI in the SEC; nice way to start the league schedule. At least we’re not in the Swamp this year.

What really annoys me is that Tulsa took the scumbag to be their coach. I’ve long been a TU fan, starting when I moved to Tulsa and Nolan was the coach – but not now.

In other news Malik scores 47 hits buzzer beater to down NC.

Speaking of SEC News, since most teams are at least 10 games in. What is everyone’s thoughts on the SEC this year? And what are you predictions for conference since it’s starting in less than 2 weeks.

Here’s my SEC “Power Rankings”

  1. Kentucky
  2. South Carolina (If Thornwell returns)
  3. Florida
  4. Arkansas
  5. Texas A&M
  6. Auburn
  7. LSU
  8. Georgia
  9. Ole Miss
  10. Alabama
  11. Mississippi State
  12. Vanderbilt
  13. Tennessee
  14. Missouri

I was kinda torn on Arkansas. We’ve looked really good, I could see us being the second best team. But, up to this point I just think South Carolina and Florida have had bigger wins. We’ll learn more about us when we play Florida here in about a week and a half.
