This year, I will focus on Alex Pothyress. I am not saying he is the most over rated but rather the most dissappointing I have seen in awhile. He has tons of talent but for some reason, it doesnt seem to be clicking. The quick yank after the non- rebound the other day by Cal seemed to be the microcosm of AP's season so far. Or yet maybe it was Poythress facial expression of "why are you taking me out" that is actually the microcosm.
As for UK as a whole. I have seen a little improvement most notably in the last game but still I think the sweet 16 may be an accomplishment for this team.
I think an SEC record of 11-7 or possibly even 10-8 record may be what we are looking at. Hope I am wrong though.
The SEC is really weak again this season. Florida and Missouri are good. Then you have two or three middling teams like Tennessee,Alabama,LSU and maybe Arkansas. After that it's not much but bad. I can't see them losing more than five games in the SEC. It will depend on how well they play on the road though.
