From Ivan Maisel, in his “I-Formation” column today:
If Georgia loses to Auburn and to Kentucky;
If Tennessee beats Arkansas and loses to Vanderbilt and Kentucky;
If South Carolina loses to Arkansas and beats Florida;
If Florida beats Vanderbilt and loses to South Carolina;
If Kentucky loses to Vanderbilt and beats Tennessee and Georgia;
And if Vanderbilt loses to Florida and beats Kentucky and Tennessee;
The SEC East will have a six-way tie for the championship at 4-4.
Hey, this season stranger things have happened.
Oh, and who would go to Atlanta in the event that all came to pass?
The SEC has a seven-step tiebreaker in place that begins with the teams’ records within the division and will winnow out teams until there are two remaining. At that point, the higher-ranked team in the final BCS standings will “win” the division, with one exception. If the lower-ranked team is within five places of the higher-ranked team, yet won the game between the two of them, then it “wins” the division.
Keep hope alive, Vandy.
