CBS 2017 Basketball SEC Offseason Power Rankings

SEC OFFSEASON POWER RANKINGS


1
[IMG]
Wildcats

With Wenyen Gabriel -- who earned only spot minutes -- the only returning rotation player, here comes the top-rated Class of 2017: P.J. Washington, Kevin Knox, Jarred Vanderbilt, Quade Green and Nick Richards. They join Diallo. Those pieces figure to fit, with Green's play at the point the key. Kentucky will be crazy talented and fascinating. Biggest question is a familiar one: Will the Cats be effective from the 3-point line?

Gators

The Gators came within a few possessions of making it to the Final Four in Mike White's second season. Because Allen, Chiozza and John Egbunu return, Florida will compete with Kentucky.
3

Aggies

Few teams will match A&M's low-post duo of Robert Williams and Tyler Davis. On the wing, D.J. Hogg will try to make the leap and become a 3-point threat. The Aggies could be a second-weekend NCAA tourney threat.

Razorbacks

There is a significant dip to reach Arkansas. But this team almost beat Carolina in the NCAA Tournament, and -- with six seniors -- the Hogs are a safe bet to dance again.
5

Crimson Tide

Collin Sexton was a bolt-from-the-blue five-star point guard prospect. While entering college as a relative unknown nationally, Sexton could be among the country's more entertaining players and work himself into the first round of the NBA Draft.
6

Commodores

Vandy reached the NCAAs last season as a 9 seed. With much of the roster returning, the Commodores could better last season's 19 wins. Fisher-Davis figures to atone for his tournament mishap.
7

Tigers

Porter will get the attention, but Terrence Phillips' point-guard play will be pivotal if the Tigers are to become next season's UCLA. The Bruins more than doubled their win total -- going from 15 to 31 -- from 2015-16 to 2016-17. Mizzou has a shot to do something similar.
8

Bulldogs

With Maten (18.2 ppg, 6.8 rpg), a top-50 lock for CBS Sports' annual list of the country's top 100 (and one) players, Georgia has a shot at reaching the NCAAs. Losing J.J. Frazier hurts, though.
9

Tigers

The Tigers could be a lot of fun, thanks to Mustapha Heron and Austin Wiley. Entering his fourth season year at Auburn without an NCAA appearance, Bruce Pearl could show some results.
10

Gamecocks

The Gamecocks return two of five starters (Chris Silva, Maik Kotsar) from that Final Four team. Hassani Gravett is a breakout candidate. Frank Martin's team is a long shot for an NCAA bid.
11

Bulldogs

Weatherspoon is underrated, largely because Mississippi State is still waiting to kick into gear under Ben Howland.
12
[IMG]
Rebels

Ole Miss has won at least 19 games every season since 2008-09 and has not had a losing season since 2005-06, but Andy Kennedy's group could lack the size and defense to finish much higher.
13
[IMG]
Volunteers

Rick Barnes' team is a mystery because it lacks a discernable leader. Sophomores Grant Williams and Lamonte Turner figure to be important.
14

Tigers

The Tigers landed promising freshman Tremont Waters, but this program needs two seasons to build itself into a top-half team.

Everyone says this is going to be AK's best team yet and if he doesn't make the tourney he's likely fired

Haha.  Nope.  I became a Gamecock fan because of basketball.  I actually grew up a Clemson fan.  Then I saw the light thanks for the 95-96 seasons.

We should go dancing with this team and if we can get Reggie Perry back on board, should have a good 2018-2019 as well.

Tennessee will be well above 13

Is 12 really considered "well above" 13?

They could be 4 or 5 wins better than last year and be a bubble school.

SOS was the only thing going for UT last season.

Why are y'all worried about 2nd-14th in basketball this year when football is 44 days away?

There is literally no trail of consciousnesses that leads to SC being the No2 team in the SEC last year.

Well that's fine.  Y'all can argue about 2-14 until the sun comes up like I said.

SC was #1 in the SEC last year since we went farther in the NCAAT than any other team.  

That's my story and I'm sticking with it. :lol:

Except the many Ls you will take. 

About the only thing I agree with on the OP is it'll be UK and UF.  I seriously doubt aTm finishes 3rd.  I haven't looked ahead to basketball around the conference much yet.  I think Vandy has a real shot to be that 3rd team.

Same boat but it's not like I'm going to wait to talk shit until I read up on it.

      there you go  always trying to act like you're Mayor McCheese up in this bitch does anybody apart from your boyfriends give a fuck about your respect around here?

      The money we send a lot of these places are to help people or buy off officials. Either way, places that take our money are more likely to do the U.S. bidding.  Mexico needs to be propped up right now. Hell they have came pretty close to being a failed government a few times in recent years. They don't have the income to buy a wall, and if they were to fail as a government the amount of illegal immigrants will be way worse.

      Looks like shit.  Probably just need to send em all to me til you get better at it...

      You ain't wrong. But they're already an enemy on many fronts. Corrupt, bankrupt, and unwilling to stem the flow of drugs and criminals across our border. $$$ speak more loudly than diplomacy. Who's gonna prop them up if we reduce our world-welfare footprint?

      There is a lot bridge burning around the world going on these days. I would not make an enemy of a neighbor.
