BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: How We Win the SEC East With 2 Losses (Including Georgia)

Can we actually win the SEC East?  Well, the answer is absolutely yes but we have a long way to go.  Let’s not forget that UK is underdogs this weekend and as it stands now will be underdogs against Mississippi State and Georgia and potential even spreads against Vanderbilt and Tennessee.  Only Missouri and Ole Miss appear to be clear favorites.  Point being, lots of games still in the air even if UK was to beat Florida.  But when I look at the entire SEC schedule, I see a few legitimate keys to making this dream come true:

  1. Beating Florida
  2. Georgia losing 3 games out of Mississippi State, at Tennessee, at Vanderbilt, at Auburn, Florida (neutral).
  3. If Florida beats Georgia, they will need to lose 1 additional game (LSU, at South Carolina)

If those 3 things happen, UK could lose 2 conference games and would likely still win the East division.  Below is the layout for each remaining week and how games COULD fall for this to happen.

    The East is so balanced this year, any team that manages only two losses will easily win it. I think three losses will likely win the East this year. Six of the seven teams could beat any of the others on any given Saturday.
