Kentucky Climbs in the SEC Standings

How time changes things.

Only a few days ago, Kentucky was facing a worst-case scenario: Wednesday night at the SEC Tournament.  After two straight wins, a best-case scenario double-bye to Friday is within reach.

Kentucky is now just 3.5 games back from the top of the SEC.  If Florida falls at Tennessee tomorrow, the Cats will move into the the top four of the SEC standings if they can split the season series with a victory over Mizzou ar Rupp this Saturday.

    Does overall record trump head to head if teams have same conference record? Is that why Miss St is ahead of us? & Mizzou behind?

    Tie breaker – per SEC website – is head to head (so we own tie breaker over MSU, Arkansas and ‘Bama) then record v number one seed (Auburn) then 2 seed etc. that’s the tourney seeding methodology. We need to beat Mizzou bc we split but they beat Auburn.

      That would be really impressive if this was football

      Correction: Missouri beat UT, not Auburn. In any event we need to hv better record than they do even if we split, which we should.

    Brad, if it was football, our win over Alabama would’ve been an even bigger deal would it not? Sadly if ands and buts were candy and nuts, we’d all have a merry Xmas as Dandy Don used to say, and oh yea, the ‘Ville would have one more banner. Sorry.
