Generally, we are the "authors" of "content" around here - "here" being a blog and not a message board. Recognize, we do, that you've come here not to contribute, but to consume. Nevertheless, there is the sporadic occasion where, either for our benefit or for to exercise the thinkifiers of the masses, we ask you a question. Today's question is . . .

"How many SEC games is this basketball team going to win?"

Since Juco isn't here today, I'm taking over his questioning duty (which he hasn't really touched in a few weeks because he's a bum) to see where it is you all feel we stand with this men's basketball team. Just before the Christmas holiday, the roundball Rebels lost two consecutuve games to decent mid-major out-of-conference opponents. Considering the talent and coaching at Southern Miss and Middle Tennessee, it's not atrociously embarrassing to lose to them - especially with the former being at an away court and the latter being at a neutral one - but it still speaks of this program's seeming inability to capitalize on superior talent in the face of superior coaching.

There's more to it than that, of course, but that's not what we're here for. We could lament our losses and eloquently dissect the ins and outs of each one, but we are going to instead look to the future. Seeing these losses, and considering that the Rebels only have a couple of weeks before SEC play begins, how well do you see this team faring in conference?

Mississippi State, Alabama, Kentucky, Vanderbilt (at times), and Florida all look good. LSU and Arkansas seem to be on an upward trend. All things considered, I think that the Rebels will be lucky to endure one of the toughest Southeastern Conference seasons in recent memory with anything over a .500 record.
