The Georgia Bulldogs fell to the Vols at home in basketball bursting our NCAA bubble almost completely. With a relevant record of 16-12 and an RPI of around 63, things are very bleak.
(Preface: I screwed up reading the seedings. We're playing Auburn in the first round. Not Alabama)
Next week at the SEC Tourney, we're the East 5 seed. The official bracket shows Georgia tipping off vs.
Let's find the silver lining. We drew the toughest path possible to the SEC Tourney Championship. Our path likely would look like this on the best case scenario:
- Thursday vs.
Friday vs. UF (Top 10 RPI)
Saturday vs. UT (Top 10 RPI) most likely given the bracket)
Sunday vs. UK or Vandy (Most likely)
