SEC West: Worst Collection of Teams Ever?


This is what SEC West basketball is.

Say what you want about Big East and Big 10 football, or Pac-10 basketball, SEC fans will have to suffer through this statement all season: THE SEC WEST IS THE WORST COLLECTION OF BCS BASKETBALL OR FOOTBALL TEAMS IN HISTORY.  Honestly, I have not even researched this fact.  It is so obvious, there is no need to research that fact.  It is an embarrassment that a conference has half of its teams make up a division that will not only not have a team make the NCAA Tournament, probably doesn’t have a team that could beat the UCONN women. 

The division’s ONLY hope for redemption will come in Oxford at Ole Miss.  Currently, the Rebels are sitting with an RPI of 60.  Which would not get them in the tournament, but does give them the chance with a 11 or 12 win conference season to be in the discussion.  And with some of the garbage teams in the West, and the fact that Ole Miss gets to play each of them twice this season, maybe just maybe they could make a run.  But don’t let me hold them up as some “legitimate” basketball team.  Their 3 losses this season have come to Dayton, Miami (FL), and Colorado State.  They have beaten 1 BCS team this year, and that was Penn St, holders of an RPI of 74.  Their strength of schedule currently sits at 105.

But that SOS is amazingly 122 spots better than ANY OTHER SEC WEST team.  So, not only have the West members been terrible this season, they have been terrible against terrible competition.

ARKANSAS (10-2)
Losses: UAB, Texas A&M
Best Win: Seton Hall (RPI: 119)

ALABAMA (7-6)
Losses: Seton Hall, Iowa, St. Peters, Purdue, Providence, Oklahoma State
Best Win: Lipscomb (RPI: 100)

LSU (8-6)
Losses: Nicholls State, Memphis, Coastal Carolina, Wichita State, North Texas, Rice
Best Win: Mcneese State (RPI: 140)

MISSISSIPPI STATE (8-6)
Losses: Florida Atlantic, E. Tennessee State, Virginia Tech, Washington State, Hawaii, St. Mary’s
Best Win: Nicholls State (RPI: 81)

AUBURN (5-7)
Losses: UNC Asheville, Samford, Campbell, Jacksonville, Rutgers, South Florida, Presbyterian
Best Win: Middle Tennessee State (RPI: 196)

Those 5 teams above have combined for ONE WIN over a team currently in RPI Top 100.  And that win was against Nicholls State.  Those 5 teams above have combined for a record of 38-27 against an average strength of schedule of 285.  TWO HUNDERED EIGHTY FIVE!!!!!!

Kentucky SHOULD NOT lose a single game to the SEC West this season, and if they do, serious hell should be raised.  I am sure the good folks of Pipa Passas would oblidge.  But I will go so far to say that no SEC West team should get within 10 points of the Cats this season.  Folks, not much excuse for the SEC hate this season.  The West, at least, has earned it.

    Screw you, BTI. You’ve never pissed me off so bad as the Wiltjer comments below. I really do officially hate you now.

    BTI sucks, every one knew it before this blog, even before he said that we should forget the un-forgettables. Hey BTI didn’t your mom teach you that if you dont have anything good to blog then don’t blog at all?

    The SEC West in basketball may be like the SEC East in football this year. The SEC East has lost 3 of 4 bowl games with Ky. playing Sat.

    Really? Worst BCS collection of football teams? Please, further explanation is certainly necessary. Correct me if I’m wrong but Alabama and Mississippi State (Both SEC West schools) absolutely demolished their competition in their bowl games. Auburn and Arkansas are BOTH in BCS bowl games, and LSU is in a respectable bowl as well. Where is the statement about SEC West football coming from? The SEC West is the best collection of BCS football schools in the country. I usually genuinely appreciate your research, but this is incorrect and thoughtless. You are an idiot.

    Matt, Beez, or whoever is in charge of KSR these days, should take BTI’s car keys away and ground him for two weeks. That picture is entirely unacceptable and junior needs to be taught a lesson.

    He is right about the basketball teams, and other than vandy the east isn’t to tough either. We should go at least 14-2 maybe 15-1.

    15) I’m sure that he wasn’t saying that they’re the worst football schools also. He was saying that out of all the terribly BCS football and basketball conferences in the country (Big East/Big 10 football and Pac 10 basketball), the west is the worst, in basketball, out of all of them. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that one out.

    The SEC in general is the armpit of college basketball. It is a complete embarrassment. The SEC will do nothing to get us ready for the NCAAT.

    25…If Butler’s trip last year thru the Horizon Lg didn’t bother them in getting to the championship game…I don’t think the SEC would be the reason we don’t.

    BTI:

    Your comments would have been fine if you had confined them to basketball. However by including the SEC West as weak in football you have confirmed your place as a complete idiot…..

    BTI…bryan the idiot works nicely. Thanks for being there. Always good to know there is someone out there who has absolutely no clue….

    All of you all are idiots. He’s not saying that the SEC West is bad at football. He’s saying that the SEC West, in basketball, has the worst collection of teams in either basketball or football history. There has never been a worse collection of basketball teams or football teams. As you can obviously see from the stats he put up (or excluded because there are no football teams on there) he is talking about basketball only. I know it’s phrased a bit weird but if 31 and I are the only two people that can see this, that’s just ridiculous.
