NCAA Basketball: Georgia at Arkansas Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Monday, Dawg Nation! Hopefully everyone has had all of the coffee thanks to last night’s super boring Super Bowl, where one Dawg running back scored the game’s only touchdown and the other Dawg running back was criminally underutilized.

But now that football season is officially over, we turn our attention to the hardwood, where things are starting to go down in the league.

Here is what’s happening around the SEC:

  • Noted basketball school Tennessee remained number one in the new rankings, capturing all 32 first place votes for the first time this season.
  • Surging Kentucky jumped to number five in the rankings after victories against Vanderbilt and Florida.
  • LSU dropped its first league contest of the year, losing to Arkansas by the score of 90-89.
  • There is growing speculation about Vanderbilt coach Bryce Drew’s job security after the Commodores lackluster season to date, especially with new athletic director Malcolm Turner’s basketball pedigree, which consists of a stint as G-League president from 2014 up until now.
  • Two classic rivalries were settled over the weekend: Mississippi State topped Ole Miss in the basketball Egg Bowl, and Auburn thumped Alabama in the basketball Iron Bowl.

Until next time… GO DAWGS!!!
