    We should blame this loss on @LRCW
    I take full responsibility. It was a busy week at work, and I didn't have time to make my prediction.

    This is jmo but I don't believe that it was an "awful" loss. Any road game in conference, especially this 2019 SEC season and the teams in it are going to be tough. Now I agree that U.K. should've won the game, no question but I just don't think that it was an awful loss. The SEC is going to be really good this season, there is no question about that. At least for now the sky hasn't fallen.

    Why is there "no question about that?" Among 14 teams, they have a total of 16 Qual Wins (BPI Top50). 4 of those come from Miss. St. Their highest non-conf SOS (99% of games played to date) is Florida at 40. 9/14 have non-conf SOS > 100.

    I think the SEC is improving, but the data suggests that it is an open question.

    3 teams in the Top 15 and one of them isn't Kentucky means something.

    I am going on what practically every ncaambb commentator has said about the strength of the SEC this season. I am also going on my own eyes when watching these SEC teams play. Yes, there are all of these what I call the alphabet stats, which some are telling but imo some aren't. I have never seen a basketball or other sports game won on paper. So, they can quote RPI, BPI, SOS and/or any other combinations of made up letters for stats that they call important. I often wonder if anyone actually watches a game. I don't know that "Data" kid or haven't watched him or his team play.
    You may be right when all is said and done. Besides watching games and forming my own opinion, I tend to listen to the commentators that played the game, were coaches and tune out the number of talking suits behind a computer. Yes, stats can be telling and are a part of it. What I am going on is a combination that aren't just numbers, they are a part of it but opinions of former coaches, players matter more to me, along with my own eyes and my opinions enter into it.
    One thing is for certain, time and the games played will tell.
