Bobbyjack usually handles the predictions, but I thought it would be fun to post my SEC tournament bracket and see how it does. I think the tournament is wide open this year, and nothing would surprise me. A lot of these games could easily go either way. All things being equal, I'm a homer, so here it goes...
(E4) Kentucky vs. (W5) Ole Miss [Raycom] 1:00 p.m. ET
Kentucky over Ole Piss. I know UK is playing awful right now, but they always bring it in March. They are playing for their NCAA life, and haven't missed the tourney since they were on probation. Jodie Meeks is good enough to carry them all the way to the championship if he gets hot.
Game 2 (W3) Miss. State vs. (E6) Georgia [Raycom] 3:15 p.m. ET
m$u over UGA, unfortunately.
Game 3 (W4) Alabama vs. (E5) Vanderbilt [Raycom] 7:30 p.m. ET
Two hot teams, we should have beat them in Nashville for the first time in 20 years, I think we get them back in Tampa. Bama
Game 4 (E3) Florida vs. (W6) Arkansas [Raycom] 9:45 p.m. ET
SECOND ROUND - March 13 (Friday)
Game 5 Game 1 Kentucky vs. (W1) LSU [Raycom] 1:00 p.m. ET
Kentucky. LSU has slipped a little as of late, and they've already got their NCAA bid wrapped up.
Game 6 m$u vs. (E2) South Carolina [Raycom] 3:15 p.m. ET
South Carolina. This could go either way, but I'm going to be optimistic and hope $tate gets sent home early.
Game 7 Alabama vs. (E1) Tennessee [Raycom] 7:30 p.m. ET
They will be out for revenge, but if we can beat them in Knoxville, we can beat them in Tampa. Tide rolls into the semis. Alabama.
Game 8 Florida vs. (W2) Auburn [Raycom] 9:45 p.m. ET
Florida. auburn will give them a game, but the home court advantage will be too much.
SEMIFINALS - March 14 (Saturday)
Game 9 Kentucky vs. South Carolina[Raycom] 1:00 p.m. ETA friend of mine who is a USC fan is convinced they will flop in Tampa. He knows his team better than I do. By this point Tampa will be Lexington South. The Cats advance to the championship game. Kentucky
Game 10 Alabama vs. Florida [Raycom] 3:15 p.m. ET
This will be tough. If we can contain Calathes, we get it done. Gee hits a shot at the buzzer to eliminate his home state team in front of all his friends and family. Alabama
FINALS - Kentucky v. Alabama.
We've come this far, may as well win it. We become this year's version of Georgia. Then it's off to Boise as a 10 sede in the big dance! SEC Tournament Champion: Alabama
