Predicting the SEC East has been a complete guessing game in recent years. Nike Roshe One Flight Weight .Consider that Missouri won the East in 2013 and 2014 when it was picked by the media to finish sixth and fourth, respectively, those years. Last year, Florida won the East after being picked to finish fifth in the preseason by the media.So, naturally, we enter the final three weeks of the 2016 regular season with the division turned upside down again. How crazy is it right now? Tennessee currently has the best chance to win the East, according to ESPNs FPI, but is currently 2-3 and in fifth place in the division.The Vols were unanimous preseason favorites in the division, and lived up to the billing by beating Florida and Georgia. The Vols, however, lost control of the division lead with three straight losses - the killer being an upset defeat at South Carolina. That put Florida squarely in the drivers seat before the Gators were upset at Arkansas last week.Meanwhile, Kentucky was just 15 minutes away from moving into a first-place tie with the Gators on Saturday night, but couldnt hold a 21-16 fourth quarter lead in a 27-24 loss to Georgia.So where does that leave us as we enter the final three weekends of the season? Theres four teams with a realistic shot to make the SEC Championship in Atlanta.South Carolina is one of them. Coach Will Muschamp may have had the best line regarding the division race after his teams win over Missouri on Saturday.Asked if he was going to address his players about still being mathematically alive in the SEC East race, Muschamp quipped, No, Im not very good at math, so I dont get into all that.We will. So lets take a look at how each team thats still alive to win the SEC East can clinch the division.Florida Preseason East pick: 2nd Remaining SEC schedule: vs. South Carolina, at LSU Path to Atlanta: The Gators are the only team that controls its own destiny. If Florida beats South Carolina at The Swamp on Saturday and LSU in Baton Rouge on Nov. 19, the Gators are going to Atlanta.Tennessee Preseason East pick: 1st Remaining SEC schedule: vs. Kentucky, vs. Missouri, at Vanderbilt Path to Atlanta: The Vols need to win their final three games and Florida to lose once.Kentucky Preseason East pick: 4th Remaining SEC schedule: at Tennessee Path to Atlanta: The Wildcats need to beat Tennessee on Saturday and Florida to lose its final two SEC games.South Carolina Preseason East pick: 7th Remaining SEC schedule: at Florida Path to Atlanta: The Gamecocks must beat Florida, Tennessee must beat Kentucky and Georgia must lose to Auburn this Saturday. Then, Tennessee would need to lose one of its final two games against Missouri or Vanderbilt.Where does Ole Miss turn to at quarterback? Ole Miss already disappointing season took an unfortunate turn on Saturday when quarterback Chad Kellys college career came to end when he tore his ACL and lateral meniscus against Georgia Southern.The loss of Kelly leaves Ole Miss in an unusual predicament. Does Rebels coach Hugh Freeze pull the redshirt off talented five-star freshman Shea Patterson with three games left? The plan was for Patterson to redshirt during Kellys senior season and hopefully take the reins next year. Now, Freeze must revisit that idea. Freeze said on Monday that nothing is off the table when it comes to Patterson.The upside would be that Patterson would gain valuable experience that will help him if he starts next season, while also helping the Rebels win two of its last three to become bowl eligible. The downside is it would cost him a year of eligibility. The Rebels only other options are redshirt freshman Jason Pellerin, who replaced Kelly on Saturday, and walk-on Drew Davis.McElwain must make quarterback change Speaking of redshirting quarterbacks, Florida coach Jim McElwain has a similar quandary. McElwain revealed on Monday that starter Luke Del Rio has an injured shoulder, and will miss Saturdays game with South Carolina and perhaps the rest of the season. Florida will have an open competition this week in practice between transfer Austin Appleby and true freshmen Kyle Trask or Feleipe Franks. Will McElwain take the redshirt off one of his talented freshmen against South Carolina, or go with the seasoned Appleby? Someone asked about the rookies, McElwain said on Monday. Well see as the week goes on where and how well play those guys.SECs hopes of two playoff teams not dashed Texas A&M, ranked No. 4 in the first College Football Playoff rankings last week, was the SECs best shot at landing a second team in the field. But that idea isnt completely over despite the Aggies loss at Mississippi State. If Auburn beats Alabama in the Iron Bowl and wins the SEC with two losses, it would likely make the playoff field. Then, would a one-loss Alabama team sneak in? Its certainly possible.Extra points: Texas A&M has given up an average of 311 yards rushing per game in its last three SEC games against Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi State. ... Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason has now orchestrated two game-winning drives in his freshman year - against Missouri and Kentucky - while having a third taken away from him on Tennessees Hail Mary. ... ESPNs Bowl Projections last week had one interesting matchup: Georgia vs. Miami in the Independence Bowl. Would there be any storylines in that one? ... Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald is now fifth in the league in rushing yards with 839. Looks like Dan Mullen has identified, and developed, another quality quarterback to run his system. ... Mississippi State senior Fred Ross moved into second place on the schools all-time receiving list on Saturday. Ross 2,252 yards are just 18 shy of the school record-holder Chad Bumphis (2009-12). Nike Roshe Two Flyknit Black . They had already blown a double-digit lead, fans were hitting the exits, and a long seven-game road trip waited at the end. Nike Roshe Two Mens . Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0. Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout. .H. -- Matt Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. LEXINGTON, Ky. - Paced by the steady presence of sophomore setter Olivia Dailey the No. 23 Kentucky volleyball team posted a 3-0 (25-17, 25-18, 25-22) win over visiting LSU on Friday night in Memorial Coliseum. Dailey dished out 38 assists and added a career-high and match-high 15 digs to lead the way for the Cats. It is her fourth career double-double.With the victory, UK improves to 21-6 overall and 14-2 in league competition. LSU falls to 9-17 overall and 4-11 against Southeastern Conference foes. The Wildcats return home on Sunday for their final regular-season home match of the season against Texas A&M. Sunday will also mark Senior Day for UKs two departing seniors in Anni Thomasson and Sharay Barnes. Match time is set for 2 p.m. and the match is slated to air on the SEC Network.Offensively I thought we were very good tonight, head coach Craig Skinner said. Hitting .340 and almost 50 kills in three sets, you have to be pleased with that. A number of people got a lot of good swings and we had just a few errors.Dailey led the way in both phases of the game for the Cats as she also directed the offense to the tune of 49 combined kills and a .339 hitting percentage. Freshman Leah Edmond reached double figures with 14 kills. Shes tallied double-digit kill totals in 24 of UKs 27 matches this season. Junior Kaz Brown logged eight behind a .400 attacking clip. Fellow middle blocker Emily Franklin added seven, while Thomasson and junior Darian Mack totaled six apiece. Sophomore Brooke Morgan scored five kills on a .444 attacking percentage.We work a lot on digging that side of the court, Skinner added. Its harder to dig right-back than it is left-back because its a quicker attack. Olivia and McKenzie (Watson) did a great job of being disciplined. They stopped on defense and made plays. Both of them are very good right-back defenders.Thomasson contributed three aces and four digs in an all-around effort. Junior libero Ashley Dusek had eight digs, while sophomore McKenzie Watson and Edmond both contributed five. Browns two blocks led the way at the net defensively.SET RECAPSSet 1 Prior to the match, Thomasson was recognized for breaking the 25-point rally scoring era for most career aces - and then the first three points of the match were scored on aces, by UKs senior leader. A kill from the back row from Thomasson lifted UK to an early 5-1 advantage. A kill from Morgan pushed the Wildcats lead to five at 7-2. At the media timeout, Kentucky owned a 15-8 cushion thanks to an attacking error by the Tigers. LSU pulled back to within six, but four consecutive points by the Wildcats enabled the home team to recapture a comfortable 10-point edge at 20-10. It was all the more breathing room the Cats would need as they captured set one by a 25-17 score. Edmond finishedd the stanza off with an electric kill, her third of the frame. Nike Roshe One DMB. Brown, Thomasson and Mack joined her with three or more hammers. Dailey dished out 14 assists and added a set-high eight scoops. Kentucky totaled 17 kills with a .351 hitting clip, while limiting LSU to 12 kills on a .265 percentage.Set 2 Franklin opened the scoring with a cross-court kill, followed by a solo rejection from Brown and the Cats owned an early 2-0 lead. LSU fended off the advantage to pull back to within one at 5-4, but a service error enabled the home team to grasp another multi-point edge. A 9-7 UK lead midway through the second set was highlighted by Dailey who had already equaled her career high with 11 digs to accompany 18 assists for her fourth career double-double. An Edmond kill, followed by an LSU miscue lifted the Cats to a five-point lead at the media break. The lead swelled to seven quickly as Kentucky two of the three points following the timeout. An LSU attacking error lifted UK to a 25-18 win and a 2-0 lead into halftime. Kentucky charted 17 kills on a .343 clip, while LSU had just nine and utilized a .133 percentage. Edmond paced the attack with five kills in the frame, and Dusek had five digs. Set 3 For the first time in the match it was the Tigers who scored the first point, but Kentucky wasted little time in firing back with a kill from Edmond. The teams exchanged points until back-to-back kills from Brown and Dailey gave UK a 4-2 advantage. LSU eventually fought its way back to a tie at 8-8, and it was Thomasson with a touch shot over the block to spell the threat and once again enable the home team to capture the lead. Thomassons kill was the beginning of a five-point spurt as UKs lead grew to five at 13-8. Consecutive kills from Edmond pushed UKs lead to six at 15-9 as the teams headed into the media break. With Kentuckys lead having expanded to eight at 18-10, LSU opted for a timeout. Kentucky was the first to push 20, maintaining its eight-point edge.
