The SEC has underachieved in a big way this college basketball season. While Kentucky has represented the conference well with a 24-6 record, just about every other team has failed to maintain any sort of consistency.
No. 17 Auburn, who has the same record as Kentucky, has had plenty of chances to separate themselves from the pack, but Wednesday's embarrassing home loss to a bad Texas A&M team on senior night really solidified them as a bonafide disappointment.
They've now lost four of their last six with defeats at the hands of lowly Georgia and Missouri.
While it's been an odd year for college basketball, the SEC has taken that sentiment to a whole new level. At one point it looked like LSU and Auburn would be legitimate NCAA Tournament threats, but at this point it looks like they could be bounced in the first round.
Did we forget to mention Kentucky blew a 17-point lead and lost to an unranked Tennessee on Tuesday? What is going on?!
The nail in the coffin for the SEC would be if the Wildcats are bounced during the first weekend of the tournament. It'd be a horrible look for the conference and truly sum up the lackluster play we've seen from just about all of these teams throughout the season.
