So, in the west, possibles would seem to be Bama LSU Auburn MSU.  Odds of anyone else are tiny.

In the east, UGA UF .... (MO is out)...  Tennessee???
i don't see msu with much of a shot. they lost a ton on the d side fo ball to nfl, and they aren't typically ones to replace talent like that. plus, even with that talent, they were 8-5 (4-4). i don't see them improving on that enough to make seccg.

I agree, trying to include anyone with a slight glimmer.  I'd guess it's really Bama and LSU.  I should have included A&M instead of MSU, but the A&M schedule is intense.

If A&M wins the SEC this year, they will have earned it.

I have aTm at 5-3 and MSU at 4-4 with aTm winning HTH at home. Have both 8-4 overall.

If A&M goes 8-4, they will be the best 8-4 team in the country.  I concur that looks about right.  Most of the time we can predict where teams will end the season within a game I think.  On occasion someone like UK last year does 2-3 games better than expected.  That occasion may be nearly every year.  It's tough to predict for obvious reasons.

My Dawgs still have that propensity to play really poorly in at least one game (LSU last season).

Missouri gets it together and runs off 8 straight and then upsets UGA in Athens, loses to Florida the next week, but wins out.



I don't know what happened yesterday beyond the score, but I presume Mizzou is "out" as a threat.  Bryant had 443 yards passing at least.

UT is a 7-5/8-4 team this season and it should be the first bowl all but a few on the team have seen. 

that said, they will both upset someone they have no business upsetting, and... i fear they'll drop a game they're favored... likely UK, Vandy, or perhaps USCe or Mizzou, who i believe to be more evenly matched to UT than a lot of folks will admit so IF UT is favored it likely won't be by much- so... not so much of an upset to drop???  ... As i've said on the UT team board, I'm thinking the MSU game is the game we'll know what UT is about, and where they're headed under Pruitt and Chaney.

We might have learned something a lot earlier than expected.

One very strange possibility is that Jalen Hurts, Jacob Eason, and Justin Fields...one transfer from Alabama and two transfers from Georgia...might end up going 1-2-3 (you pick the order) in the Heisman race this year.  Probably not, but so far they all three look awfully good.
