BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: Now Let’s Look at Who the SEC Lost to……

Yesterday you hopefully read my post breaking down the SEC non-conference wins for this season.  It’s not a pretty list.  Kentucky alone has 6 of the top 10 wins by RPI in the league.  A team making up just 7% of the league has 60% of it’s best 10 wins.  Not exactly a great statement for the SEC quality of basketball this year.  But what about the losses?  This post might even be harder to read than the wins post, but it should also give you a better sense of who the bottom dwellers might be in the league this year.  Below are all of the non-conference losses by the SEC ranked by RPI, worst to best:
