The SEC East has been considered the lesser half of the conference for quite a few years now and it’s seasons like this one are the reason for that. No team is truly dominant and there’s a 5-3 team that is challenging for the division title. The Florida Gators and Kentucky Wildcats are atop the standings and it looks like this:
You notice anything fishy about the standings? Not the one less game played by the Gators though because that’s a result of the Hurricane Matthew ordeal with LSU. How about that only one team has a positive point differential? That’s right. The Gators are the only team in the East with a good defense and apparently values the other team not scoring against them.
This is exactly the reason why the SEC East can’t have nice things though.
