# Team Record AP ESPN Pom BBSt. Sag AVG* Comments
01 Kentucky Wildcats 22-8 (10-6) 20 23 12 12 16 13.33 Hold on to first based on the strength of their resume. Earned the bye with solid wins over Vandy and Tennessee.
02 Florida Gators 24-6 (13-3) 14 14 19 11 18 16.00 Finally leap frogs Vandy in the statistical rankings. Congratulations to the 2011 SEC Regular Season Champions.
03 Vanderbilt Commodores 21-9 (9-7) 21 20 29 24 29 27.33 Not the way you want to end the regular season. Really looking for the team to get it together with a somewhat easy path to the SECT Semis.
04 Alabama Crimson Tide 20-10 (12-4) 33 30 48 39 63 50.00 Good news: No SEC team has ever been left out with more than 11 wins in conference. Bad news: Unless they win a couple in the SECT, they could be the first.
05 Georgia Bulldogs 20-10 (9-7) X X 57 49 49 51.67 Also in need of wins in the SEC Tournament in order to secure the bye.
06 Tennessee Volunteers 18-13 (8-8) X X 53 67 47 55.67 Still in the field as of now, but could improve their resume with some SECT wins.
07 Mississippi Rebels 19-12 (7-9) X X 73 68 83 74.67 The SEC West's second best statistical team finished third.
08 Arkansas Razorbacks 18-12 (7-9) X X 101 131 99 110.33 Must win the tournament to go to the NCAAT. But that was obvious.
09 Mississippi St. Bulldogs 17-13 (9-7) X X 120 110 121 117.00 The ninth best statistical team in the SEC is the West's two seed (and bye recipient). Enough said about restructuring the way the tournament is seeded.
10 South Carolina Gamecocks 14-15 (5-11) X X 126 126 112 121.33 Really wishing they were in the SEC West this year.
11 Auburn Tigers 11-19 (4-12) X X 276 250 229 251.67 Not last. Also: not a snowball's chance in Hell of winning the SEC Tournament.
12 LSU Tigers 11-20 (3-13) X X 287 248 224 253.00 Last. Also: not a snowball's chance in Hell of winning the SEC Tournament.
