Is the general consensus the SEC should be a better league this year? It seems like I have heard that from a few posters. If that is the case and with a lot of younger players I will go with 19-10 for the regular season. This is not a knock on Rick Barnes but I think we found ways to win tight games last year with experienced players we might not win with these new guys.
I'm going to go 20-11 (10-8), around 4th-5th in the SEC and get a 6 or 7 seed. Would be pretty excited about a return to the Sweet 16. I think that's the ceiling for this year's team unless JJJ and Plavsic both turn out to be huge additions (which they may).
Good grief that is a tough schedule. I’m going to trust Barnes and say we find a way to 19-12 and then get to 20 or 21 in the SEC tournament. My initial reaction was 17-14 but Barnes is a good coach and our effort and guard play are hopefully worth a couple more wins. 20+ wins with that schedule will get us in the tournament.
How do we always end the season with such a back loaded schedule?? Those last 5 games are brutal. @AU,, @Ark UF, @UK, AU. It's weird seeing us play at Rupp in March. It seems like it's always early on in the start of SEC play?
