Going into the season, Kentucky was again the popular choice to win the Southeastern Conference regular season title as coach John Calipari’s team usually does.
Today both Florida and Texas A&M are ranked ahead of Kentucky in the top 10.
Five of six CBS Sports college basketball analysts are not picking UK to win the SEC as of today.
Three of them picked Florida and two went with Texas A&M. Both have veteran teams, especially compared to UK.
Only Gary Parrish picked Kentucky to win the SEC championship. Here are the other picks:
Matt Norlander: Florida
Chip Patterson: Florida
Reid Forgrave: Florida
Kyle Boone: Texas A&M
Jerry Palm: Texas A&M
The Wildcats host Texas A&M Jan. 9 and Florida Jan. 20. They play at Texas A&M Feb. 10 and close the regular season at Florida March 3.
