Massey has the Lady Vols at 19, with TAMU at 18. Both play on Monday, Dec. 28. LVs against 3-2 Lipscomb (288) and A&M against 0-4 Northwestern LA (353). Presently Massey has the Lady Vols as a 2 point underdog in College Station in their matchup on Dec. 31.
The current ranking of the SEC according to Massey's metric has South Carolina as the clear leader with the next 6 teams fairly evenly matched.
Massey uses a computer program. Right now it includes data from the last games of the previous year. Massey's predictive accuracy will be much better by late January of next year. I usually ignore Massey until around mid-January, when it becomes a really good analytical tool.
The start of SEC this year is critical..... At TA&M and then KY and Arkansas at home ! If we can get two ????? We are on our way .... One and we are working to stay in the top 4 or 5 ! And if we lose all three..... back in the middle! And as always JMO
