Alabama has the easiest schedule in the SEC, by far. Only one game each against Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas, Florida and Ole Miss, the clear top 5 teams in the league.
I am just hoping that Mizzou can finish in the top 4 and get the double bye for the SEC tourney. If Mizzou can win a couple of these road games coming up and do well in the SEC tourney, maybe they can move up the NCAA ladder far enough (is it top five or top six seeds that get to stay close to home) and play in KC for the NCAA tourney. I think that would be huge for the program, as it would give them an opportunity to get two wins in as close to a home environment as possible, and spring a sweet 16 run.
However, for any of that to even begin to happen, Mizzou needs to play better on the road and get some road wins. That starts tonight at UK, need a win there.
