Here’s a fun exercise from the folks at Rock M Nation, looking at key stats needed to win the SEC East over the past few seasons (I used to go through a similar practice here measuring the metrics common to Georgia’s SEC runs until the advent of the HUNH made some of that obsolete. But I digress.)
You’ll have a good time wading through the numbers, but what I wanted to mention is something I noticed in the spreadsheet that concludes the piece. It’s a reminder that, somehow, Florida managed to win the SEC East in back-to-back seasons in which it finished 100th and 107th nationally in scoring offense. I don’t know how it’s possible to pull that off.
When people tell you the SEC East has been in a slump, that’s the kind of stuff they’re talking about.
