This week in the SEC

I'll try to make this a regular thing. It all depends on how much time I have. I'm keeping it to the SEC vs "name teams."

LSU wins at Oregon State 60-53. The Beavers stink, but it's a road win.

- UGA upset Gonzaga 96-83... big win for the SEC. The Dawgs are 7-1.
- Arkansas gets manhandled by Texas Tech in Little Rock 71-56. That's 2 bad losses (the other was an asskicking by Missouri). I firmly believe that Stan Heath will be fired at the end of the season. It's one year too late.
- Kentucky continues their recent dominance over Louisville 61-49. Louisville isn't very good... Pitino should've kept the basketball program in C-USA (g). Regardless, Kentucky seems to be improving... although I still think they're the 4th best team in their division.
- Ole Miss beats South Alabama (this is the exception to the "name school" but worth mentioning) in the 1st game of the Coors Classic 82-72. Rebels are 9-2 (losses to UConn and Memphis).

Mississippi State wins at Miami 70-52. Any road win is a good one.

Upcoming big games in the SEC:
12/18 (tonight)- Tennessee faces undefeated Oklahoma State in Nashville.
12/20- Arkansas plays Texas, LSU goes to Washington, and we go to Raleigh to play NC State.
12/22- Auburn plays Texas A&M, Kentucky has UMass, and UGA goes to GA Tech.
12/23- Texas plays Tennessee (did we invite the Longhorns to the SEC?) and Ohio State comes to Florida.
This week will tell us how good the SEC as a conference is. So far it's been disappointing.

Is Eddie Sutton back coaching Oklahoma State? He is one of the best coaches in the country IMO.

Negative... his son Sean took over.
Eddie is similar to Lou Holtz... a good coach that leaves a trail of NCAA inquiries.
