“I still don’t like South Carolina,” Dye said. “Hell no, it was against Kentucky. They could all score 60 or 70 points against Kentucky. Let them throw for 300 yards against Alabama or LSU, then I’ll be impressed with South Carolina.”
Dye said he ranks his former team, Auburn, in the bottom half of the SEC.
“You got LSU and Alabama at the top,” he said, “then under that you got Arkansas, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.”
Interestingly, Dye gets some statistical support from Bill C., who observes,
… Georgia, meanwhile, surged into the top 20 and solidified my impression of them as the East favorite. South Carolina and Florida could obviously still have something to say about that, but a) Florida needs a quarterback, and b) South Carolina needs to look great against somebody other than Kentucky before I get back to believing in them. (P.S. How bad is Kentucky? South Carolina destroyed them in every possible way and still fell out of the F/+ Top 25. Ouch.) [Emphasis added.]
Sure will be interesting to see which way things head in the SEC East over the next three weeks…
