Auburn lost last night, so that’s good

Maybe the old adage, Winning on the road in the SEC isn’t easy, is true after all.

Kentucky was reminded of that fun fact last Saturday when the Cats dropped a game at Alabama as a five-point favorite. Then last night, Auburn, another contender for the SEC crown, dropped a game as a four-point favorite at Ole Miss.

The Rebels actually whooped up on the 11th-ranked Tigers, 82-67, in a surprising upset. Ole Miss’s Terence Davis went for 27 points and 12 rebounds as his team moved to 12-2 on the season and 2-0 in conference play under new head coach Kermit Davis (no relation to Terence, as far as I know). The Rebels lost 20 games in 2017-18.

Now we just need Tennessee to drop one it’s not supposed to and the presumed top three teams in the conference are all square again. However, some other SEC teams, like Ole Miss, are making some noise of their own. It’s going to be a battle this year.

 Tennessee 2-0 13-1 9-0 2-0 2-1 W9
 Ole Miss 2-0 12-2 7-0 2-1 3-1 W9
 South Carolina 2-0 7-7 5-4 1-2 1-1 W3
 LSU 1-0 11-3 9-0 0-1 2-2 W4
 Kentucky 1-1 11-3 9-0 1-1 1-2 W1
 Alabama 1-1 10-4 6-1 1-2 3-1 L-1
 Arkansas 1-1 10-4 7-3 2-0 1-1 L-1
 Florida 1-1 9-5 5-2 1-1 3-2 W1
 Georgia 1-1 9-5 7-1 1-2 1-2 W1
 Mississippi State 0-1 12-2 8-0 1-1 3-1 L-1
 Auburn 0-1 11-3 8-0 0-2 3-1 L-1
 Missouri 0-1 9-4 6-2 0-1 3-1 L-1
 Vanderbilt 0-2 9-5 8-2 1-2 0-1 L-2
 Texas A&M 0-2 6-7 5-3 0-2 1-2 L-3

    I guess that means that Auburn sucks and is not a title contender – they should fire their coach! At least that’s the logic used by some “fans” who post on KSR.

      Unranked South Carolina knocked off #14 Miss. State in OT last night too. Guess they should fire their coach as well.

      They’ll all just come here and say rankings don’t matter…then they’ll lose their collective sh!t if we lose to an I ranked team. It’s a perfect double standard set by these folks. Whatever works to fit their “Sky is falling” narrative.

      Thanks Drew…

      I’m concerned with how well our CATS are performing, improving, and being coached!

      Heck, all the other SEC schools could lose the rest of their games and if Coach Calipari can’t get our CATS to play KENTUCKY BASKETBALL and hit the high bar…. he’ll just get our butts beat by another Kansas State in the Sweet 16 while we fail to get another NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP Banner….AGAIN!

      RUPP set the high standards, but so far Calipari has not attained them…

    The negative blowhards whether it’s Gran or Cal or the b-ball team in general just show how little they know about sport and game strategy and competition. Were it not so disgusting it’d be hilarious

      Haha! I know one thing. Cal 30+ nba draft picks = 1 title and mediocracy mostly

    That’s the first game I’ve watched of Auburn. They shoot the 3 like no team I’ve seen, they don’t even look to the post. I guess if you catch them hot they’ll kill you, but last night all those 28ft jumpers were off and they had no answer. Ole Miss must have missed 10 FTs in last 3 minutes, some front end of 1&1, and still won by 15. That was a butt kicking.

    Drew, Tennessee will lose a game or two on the road. It’s tough out there on the road in conference play.

    Everytime any team loses its an excuse for uk and Cal. You know your team stinks when you have to repeatedly have to do this.
