CBS says UK has shot at SEC East

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.

    I hate how people always make it out to be someone else’s fault that we are winning at what point are people going to credit the team for playing well, not just act like the other team blew it. Every season the team is different, it has different strengths and faces different challenges and should only be judged based on the body of work from that season.

      OMG, agreed! Seems like no one ever gives credit to UK, god forbid we actually play well and deserve a win. No, if we win, it’s cause the other team sucked and blew it. Ugh.

    That was just a chance for cbs to give a condescending, backhanded compliment.

    Good lord, this is condescending. Wow.
    1. Maybe, just maybe, we’re winning games and in 2nd because we’re (gasp) playing well.
    2. Does CBS forget that Bama was seriously impressed with UK when we went down there to T-Town?! Jonathan Allen said it was one of the most physical games he’s played in college, and he’s a senior who’s played in every game for 4 years. So say we make the SEC Champ. It’s a second shot at a team we already faced, with a QB with a ton more experience under his belt, and in a neutral location instead of at Bama. Would we lose? Yeah. Would it be a decent game? Yeah. It would be better than the piece of crap Florida laid against them last year, anyway.
