Sure enough, South Carolina beat LSU. That means that there is a three-way tie for first (South Carolina, Kentucky and LSU are 8-3), a two-way tie for second (Texas A&M and Florida are 7-4), and a two-way tie for third (Vanderbilt and Georgia are 6-5).
Every game is vitally important, and that's why I hoped that the Dawgs could somehow steal one at Rupp. Had we won that game, we would have had a real shot at winning the Conference.
Of course, Georgia can just as easily lose a couple of games and fall toward the bottom of the SEC. There is a four-way tie for fourth, so any slip-up by UGA could result in teams passing us by quickly.
Whatever magic Georgia has is needed now. We've got seven more games left before the SEC tournament.
