SEC Road Woes continue....
When #1 Florida almost gets beat at Mississippi State, that's when you begin to realize exactly what you're dealing with here. Granted, other teams aren't getting blown out...but they may as well, because a loss is a loss.

Last night, Florida won at Mississippi State, and jumpstart Vanderbilt won at LSU (who is proving to not be very good this year). Alabama is now a half game out of the Western Division LEAD. Ridiculous, my friends.

Anyway, on to the losses. Tennessee lost at Ole Miss (yes, without Chris Lofton), Arkansas lost at South Carolina (who is AWFUL), and Kentucky lost at Georgia in overtime.

Let's go team by team and see what their win loss record is at home and on the road in the SEC:

Alabama 2-0 at home, 0-3 on the road
Kentucky 2-1 at home, 2-1 on the road
Georgia 3-0 at home, 1-2 on the road
Arkansas 2-1 at home, 0-3 on the road
South Carolina 1-2 at home, 0-2 on the road
Tennessee 2-0 at home, 0-3 on the road
Ole Miss 2-1 at home, 0-3 on the road
Vanderbilt 2-0 at home, 2-2 on the road
LSU 2-1 at home, 0-2 on the road
Florida 3-0 at home, 2-0 on the road
Miss St 2-1 at home, 0-2 on the road
Auburn 3-0 at home, 0-3 on the road

Now, incase you didn't catch the point of this, there are 8 out of 12 SEC teams that are winless on the road. Georgia has 1 road win (at Arkansas, and Florida, Kentucky, and Vandy all have 2 road wins. The total record for SEC road teams so far is 7-26.

So is the SEC really this tough? There are potentially 6, and possibly 7, NCAA tournament teams this year. Alabama and Tennessee both built high RPIs early, along with Kentucky. LSU needs some work. Arkansas can steal a few, but needs to start winning the ones they're supposed to win. Vandy is on a hot streak, and Auburn looks like a team to reckon with. Florida, of course, will get in. Georgia is looking very good as well. So that, in and of itself, is 8.

We'll see this weekend if Alabama can handle Arkansas at home.
