It's going to be very tough for Kentucky to even win the SEC Eastern Division this year. Florida is obviously the best team, but I have also been very impressed with Tennessee and Georgia. It is always tough to beat South Carolina. I think Georgia will be the darkhorse of the whole SEC, not just the SEC East.
It will be very difficult for Kentucky to win the SEC East, but they could. They have to get one of those top two positions to get that first night off in the SEC Tournament. That is the most important goal.
I will give my pick to win the whole SEC to Florida by just a little bit because I saw what the Gators did to Ohio State. Obviously Florida is also the defending national champion. But I wouldn't put Alabama too far behind because I think Alabama is really good as well. They have a very athletic front line with Alonzo Gee, Jermareo Davidson and Richard Hendrix. They are big guys that really play big and they have a point guard (Ronald Steele) that was a preseason All-American and is really a good player to run a team. They have all the ingredients to be there at the end. I would not be surprised to see Alabama take the overall title.
Kentucky could still get there, but the Cats would really have to play well and probably get some help from a few other teams if they were to win it all.
