Considering which SEC team looked like it was getting stronger last year, I'd say A&M has the best shot at coming out on top of the SECw, but Alabama and LSU will be strong again, particularly the tide, with none of the SECe guys finishing off the SECw champ in Atlanta. South Carolina and Auburn may be slipping somewhat....middle of their divisions. Jawja' and Arkansas, although potential contenders, have numerous question marks, as well as FU (although they could be a dark horse contender with such a wealth of returning and arriving talent.....sad but I'm just being honest). Ole Miss and MSU are getting better but won't get there in '13.....no way. 'Good teams, though. Mizzou's not up to SEC toughness and who knows if or when they will be. They need to beef up their recruiting machine just to begin to start dreaming. UK and Vandy will be their older cellar-dweller selves.....disappointing their revitalized fans due to some good recruiting for the kitties(remember the '14 class will provide only one year's worth and depth, that thinness of personnel being a primary mitigating factor, along with a subpar overall coaching staff) and Framklin's got to at least match last year's record with the commodes (he won't). If not he'll move on to greener pastures. They won't be surprising anybody this year. As for the Tennessee Volunteers: I'm thinking no worse than 3rd in the SECe with W's over a pair of teams to whom they're supposed to lose. CBJ's looking like the coach we've been looking for, even though few of us (including your's truly), had no clue he'd so capably put this toy back together. All in all, we Vol fans are going to feel pretty darn good this year..........and then we've got bball to enjoy. GBO!
