So let’s recap what has to happen here:

Tennessee beats South Carolina, Missouri, Kentucky and Vanderbilt.
Missouri loses to either Kentucky this weekend or Arkansas on Nov. 29
Georgia beats Florida on Nov. 2
Vanderbilt beats Florida on Nov. 9
Missouri beats Georgia on Nov. 9
Missouri beats Florida on Nov. 16
Auburn beats Georgia on Nov. 16
Texas A&M beats Georgia on Nov. 23
Here’s what everybody’s SEC record would be at best for them if those things happened:

Tennessee: 5-3
Missouri: 5-3
Georgia: 4-4
Florida: 4-4
South Carolina: 4-4
Vanderbilt: 4-4
Kentucky: 3-5

This is what could happen right? Still hope here!!

Wow. You have a lot of time on your hands. I was following your logic until I got to “Vanderbilt beats Florida”.

Well heck, we might as well finish the thought by upsetting LSU in the Championship Game to pay them back for 2001 and in the process insure that no SEC team is part of the NC picture.

After being on this website for a number of years, I am saddened that no one has attempted to figure out how the Vols can still win the East after they have been mathematically eliminated.
Mathematically eliminated is one thing. But then there's being philosophically eliminated. And you'd still need to be tangentially eliminated after that. So you see, we still have a shot. Right? 🤔

There was a convo back in 2016 or so where some were making the case that a 3-loss Tennessee could still make the playoff.
