Kentucky used a roster full of pros to cruise through the SEC last season and win the national championship. But the Wildcats’ top six players are gone. So this season’s SEC favorite will be … Kentucky. Again. And this is pretty much how it’s gonna go until John Calipari either retires or returns to the NBA because he reloads like no other. Yes, Florida will be good this season. So will Missouri. But the smart money is on the Wildcats because they’re operating at another level.
