SEC Power Poll and the state of SEC basketball

Linky for Power Poll.

As far as SEC basketball is concerned... let's take a look at the current standing shall we?

Ole Miss 2 - 0 1.000 13 - 2 .867 9-0 3-1 1-1 W5
Florida 2 - 0 1.000 12 - 2 .857 7-0 3-2 1-0 W4
Texas A&M 2 - 0 1.000 12 - 3 .800 9-1 2-0 1-2 W4
Auburn 2 - 0 1.000 8 - 7 .533 6-3 2-1 0-3 W3
Mississippi St. 2 - 0 1.000 7 - 7 .500 6-1 1-3 0-3 W2
Missouri 1 - 1 .500 12 - 3 .800 9-0 0-3 3-1 L1
Arkansas 1 - 1 .500 10 - 5 .667 10-1 0-2 0-2 W1
Kentucky 1 - 1 .500 10 - 5 .667 8-2 0-2 1-1 L1
Alabama 1 - 1 .500 9 - 6 .600 6-3 1-3 2-0 W1
LSU 0 - 2 .000 9 - 4 .692 8-1 1-3 0-0 L2
South Carolina 0 - 2 .000 10 - 5 .667 7-3 0-2 3-0 L2
Tennessee 0 - 2 .000 8 - 6 .571 6-2 0-3 2-1 L4
Vanderbilt 0 - 2 .000 6 - 8 .429 4-1 1-3 1-3 L2
Georgia 0 - 2 .000 6 - 9 .400 6-4 0-3 0-2 L2

 Note that Mi$$i$$ippi $tate, the Barn, and A&M are all undefeated in conference play. Those teams lost to the following out of conference:
  • Murray State
  • Boston College
  • Rhode Island
  • Dayton
  • Depaul
  • Winthrop
  • Troy
  • Providence
  • Alabama A&M
  • Southern 
A&M, Auburn, and Mi$$i$$ippi $tate all won road games yesterday (@ UK, SC Lite, and UGA). I might be wrong on Kentucky as I thought they'd get things going by now, but if you ask me I'd say only Ole Miss, Florida, and Missouri are NCAA tournament caliber teams. Which means we'll get 4 in the NCAAT as someone other than those 3 will win the SECT.

It's not just the SEC that is down this year. The ACC might be just as bad, the PAC-12 on par, and the Big 12 just slightly better. Heck, as I was talking to commenter Rocky Mountain Tide in CO the day of the BCS Championship, we agreed that the MWC is the 3rd best hoop conference behind the Big East and Big 10.

I'm gonna be brutally honest... watching SEC basketball this year is like watching Big East football. Only a diehard can watch the SEC's interpretation of basketball.

Should all schools just fire their coaches and then all of them will be good again ? yeah, simple solution!
