08:17 AM ET 12.25 | While SEC football rules, the conference's basketball programs are a different story. The SEC had a weekend that likely will define this conference: inconsistent. Sure, Missouri beat Illinois in St. Louis, Kentucky took out Marshall and Georgia beat USC at home. And while we could highlight the expected wins by Tennessee, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Arkansas against lower-level teams, we have to draw attention to the rest: Vanderbilt lost to Middle Tennessee State, Texas A&M fell to Southern, Alabama dropped to Mercer, Auburn was beaten by Winthrop, Ole Miss couldn't get past Indiana State, LSU lost to Marquette and the league favorite, Florida, lost its second straight game away from home, this time to Kansas State in Kansas City.

Gonna be a rough year for us in hoops. Not a whole lot of experience on the roster or size inside.

sounds like SEC football to me. I dare someone to look at Georgia's schedule and tell me where I am supposed to find any indication that they deserved to be in a "semi-final" for the National Championship. They literally played TWO meaningful games all season and got blown out in one of them. Seriously?? Utah State could have produced the same outcome as Georgia. SEC is more than just a joke in basketball. Football is perhaps even more overrated.
