Saw some odds on SEC teams winning the divisions and the conference....
Odds to win the 2013-2014 Southeastern Conference
South Carolina 9/2
Texas A&M 15/2
Ole Miss 33/1
Mississippi State 75/1
Odds to win the 2013-2014 Southeastern Conference – East Division
South Carolina 8/5
Odds to win the 2013-2014 Southeastern Conference – West Division
Texas A&M 15/4
Ole Miss 10/1
Mississippi State 33/1
If you translate these odds into head-to-head match-ups, we'll be slightly favored against Mississippi State because we get them at home, but we'll be dogs to Ole Miss, Tennessee, and a slight dog to Arkansas because we play them on the road.
So 8 SEC games, going by this, we'll be favored in 1 (MSU @ home), and dogs in the other 7. Which is fine, just gives some opportunity to make some noise by winning games we're expected to lose.
I think we'd get to 2-6 on the low end, possibly 4-4 if things go well, with 5-3 as a "wow, what a turnaround" kind of season. So I'd put 3-5 as maybe the most likely outcome, which means we'd be pulling two upsets just to get to that.
Of course, as the season rolls on, odds will change, and we may end up being favorites by the time we get to Ole Miss, and especially by the time we get to @ Arkansas and @ Tennessee (both in November). I guess this is the reality of going 0-8 in the conference. It's a long way back to respect. Can't wait to get started.

Lulz @ Mizzou with better odds to win the conference.
kick 'em in the ass, big blue.
Over? Did you say over? It's not over until we say it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell NO!!!
My first thought as well. Mizzou is going to get shitkicked by everyone... again. Dorial Green Beckham is such a wasted talent there.
I was going to put a witty joke here, but I forgot bama fans still use picture books. So I thought I'd expedite the process for you...
Also.... How the hell does Alabama have better odds (1-1) at winning the overall SEC than they do the West (1-2)?
Um, 1-2 odds are better odds than 1-1...2-1 is worse than 1-1.
"The thing about quotes from the internet is that it’s hard to verify their authenticity." --Abraham Lincoln
1-2 odds means they are an overwhelming favorite to win the West, and that a $1 bet only pays $0.50. 1-1 is even money and a $1 bet pays $1.
My B... I was thinking backwards. It's been a tough week. My job has been driving me insane... so much to the point where I found my first gray hair.... and then found a second the day after. fml. Thanks for the correction.
I remember a few years ago when I found my first gray...yeah...a couple hundred later...
EDIT: Didn't realize that was directed at someone else
