The SEC will be lucky to get 5.

re: The sec will have 9 or 10 teams make the tournament
Not possible.

However, I think the eyes of the Selection committee will be focused on Nashville for the SEC Tourney with several teams in contention.

Here's how I see it looking, heading into SEC Tournament weekend (with SEC record)...

TEAMS SAFELY IN THE FIELD:

Tennessee (17-1)- 1 seed
Kentucky (16-2)- 1-2 seed
LSU (15-3)- 4 seed
Auburn (11-7)- 5-7 seed

TEAMS LIKELY IN, BUT COULD SWEAT IT OUT WITH 0-1 SEC TOURNEY RECORD IN NASHVILLE

Alabama (10-8)- 8-10 seed
Mississippi St. (9-9)- 9-11 seed

TEAMS RIGHT ON THE BUBBLE

Ole Miss (9-9)- 10-OUT
S. Carolina (13-5)- 10-OUT
Arkansas (10-8)- 10-OUT
Florida (8-10)- 11-OUT

I think Alabama and State are probably in no matter what with those records, but a win in Nashville would solidify it.

I think Ole Miss, South Carolina, and Arkansas would likely need one win in Nashville to make the Tournament.... but win one, and they are likely in.

I think Florida needs a minimum of 2 wins in Nashville to remain in contention.... 3 wins to solidify a spot.

However, if a team like Florida were to win 3 games in Nashville and make the field of 68, there is a good chance they'd knock out another team in the process.

I think 7-8 SEC teams making the Tournament is most realistic.

7-8 still seems optimistic imo

re: The sec will have 9 or 10 teams make the tournament
8 probably is.

I think Tennessee, Kentucky, LSU, and Auburn are likely in easily. That's 4. I think Alabama and Mississippi State are on pace to also get in.... that brings you to 6.

At that point, you have South Carolina, Arkansas, Ole Miss, and Florida who are all on or could likely be on the bubble come March. I think its likely one of those gets in to bring the total to 7.

As crazy as it sounds, South Carolina might have the best shot of the four to make it into the field. Here are their remaining games...

at Tennessee
Texas A&M
Ole Miss
at Mississippi St.
Alabama
at Missouri
at Texas A&M
Georgia

I think losing in Knoxville and Starkville is likely. I think there is a good shot they win the rest. That would take them to 13-5 in league play which would likely get them into the Tournament.

Too bad the team that is playing now didn't show up earlier in the season. Somehow they lost to #74 Providence, #77 Oklahoma State, #144 Stony Brook, and #310 Wyoming.

That loss to Wyoming probably caused them to have to win 3 extra SEC games to make up for it. If they didn't have that horrific loss on the resume, I think 10-8 in SEC play would likely get them into the field. All of those others can somewhat be excused. But to make up for the loss to Wyoming, they likely need to get to 12-6 or even 13-5 in SEC play.

South Carolina NET rankings is 99th in the country. The only hope for them is to win the SEC tournament. The only bubble team right now in the SEC is Florida. The SEC is probably getting at least 7 teams in the tournament. Ole Miss, Bama, and State just need to avoid being upset by the bottom of the SEC to get in. This is probably the worst bubble in years and even a team like Arkansas still has a chance to get in.

As much as I would like to see that.. I don't think there's any way we get in this year. This is not a NCAA tournament quality team.

Hey man, baseball season starts Friday and March madness can't come and go soon enough to flush this shitty season away. I would love to see it but would be shocked.

Not necessarily. They've been steadily climbing each week... they were closer to 200 several weeks ago, but since they turned the corner, they've been climbing. If South Carolina can get to 12-7 or 13-5 in SEC play, they'll be in discussion for an at-large bid.

Right now the Gamecocks have 3 Quadrant 1 wins... that's as many or more than several teams currently considered safely in the Field.

If the Gamecocks can close out with home wins over Ole Miss, Alabama, Texas A&M, and Georgia.... plus road wins over Texas A&M and Missouri.... then that would give South Carolina 10 wins against Quadrant 1 and 2 opponents.

Another thing they have going for them is their ridiculously difficult schedule. Granted, they lost or will likely lose all of these, but they are on track to face five opponents in the current NET Top 6.

If they get to 18-13 (13-5), I think they get into the Tournament barring an 0-1 showing in Nashville.

Their non-conference SOS is #71 and they went 4-8 in those games. What is helping their overall SOS right now is they've already played LSU, Tennessee, Kentucky, State, and Auburn. But adding 2 games games against RPI #104 A&M, a game against #115 Missouri, and #140 UGA is going to hurt them. They do still have games against #9 Tennessee, #49 Ole Miss, and #33 Alabama, but I'm not sure that will offset the former mentioned games.

Their OOC record is still going to kill them. IMO They likely would need to win out and make a run in the SECT to have a chance of an at-large bid. Those remaining games aren't all that strong. Obviously a win against Tennessee would be huge, but wins against Alabama, Ole Miss, and the bottom of the SEC I don't think would be enough to make up for going 4-8 OOC.
