Jon Solomon over for that little ol’ company called CBS thinks Kentucky has a legit shot at winning the SEC East. I know, I know–the last eleventy billion times it seemed like we’d come close ended modestly–but his case… Well, the logic isn’t bad:
“5. Kentucky could win the SEC East. Every year, the SEC East seems to reach a new low. The pinnacle would be if Kentucky — yes, that Kentucky — somehow reaches the SEC Championship Game for a brutal mismatch against Alabama. Might Nick Saban rest some starters if he played Kentucky for the SEC title? After Tennessee lost to South Carolina, Kentucky now sits alone in second place in the SEC East despite a Week 1 loss to Southern Miss and a 45-7 loss first-place Florida a week later.
If the Wildcats win their last two SEC games (vs. Georgia, at Tennessee) and Florida loses two of their last three (at Arkansas, vs. South Carolina, at LSU), Kentucky would go to Atlanta. Is that likely to happen? Perhaps not. But it’s not as far-fetched as it may sound. The decision to move Florida-LSU from Gainesville to Baton Rouge could have major SEC East implications that no one could have imagined: Kentucky in Atlanta.”
Don’t see Florida dropping to Muschamp/South Carolina, though that would be funny. But, if we can somehow pull off wins against Georgia and at Tennessee, BBN will be Hogs and Tigers fans for 3 hours.
