Default Where will South Carolina finish in the SEC East this year?

I think either Tennessee or Florida will get better this year. Nobody will be close to Georgia.

1 - Georgia
2 - UT
3 - Kentucky
4 - South Carolina
5 - Florida
6 - Vandy

I think Kentucky might be the second best team.

Third or fourth sounds about right. One of the other teams that has been down will start to rise again. I'm not sure which one.

It doesn’t really matter. In that division it is Georgia then everyone else, so Georgia 1st and everyone else tied for last.

I will say second or third. It will depend on the Florida game if they win 7 or 8 games.

I think they have a legitimate chance of beating Georgia week 2. If they win that game they'll probably win the SEC east, but I cant see them finishing less than 3rd.

Third

Until they actually beat Kentucky, the wildcats are better than the chickens.

Florida has a chance to take third, but I doubt it.

Jawja is better than the entire division. Tennessee will be lucky to hang on to 5th.

no doubt the chickens have a chance.., but UGA will be heavily favored in that game as they should be. So yeah underdogs beat favored teams sometimes (an upset) but its more likely UGA beats the brakes of em. I'm predicting its not even close.

Also you are right that the SEC east is way down, but dont confuse a good record in an awful division, for a team being good. Honestly the chickens need to figure out how to break "the streak" that a horrible Kentucky team has on them, before we start talking about "a legit chance" of beating a top 5 team

They will finish third behind Georgia and Florida. They will lose both. They'll finish 7-5 overall. Maybe 8-4 at best.

Third is a safe prediction but it wouldn't surprise me if they finish fourth. I don't think they'll be second. I agree with Will that Georgia and Florida will be the top two.

Somewhere between 2nd and 5th. The East is garbage and if they limit turnovers and penalties they could easily win 8 or 9 games.

With all due respect, that game will not change their standing in the $EC least. Only conference games matter.

You may be right, though.
