4. The SEC East may get very chaotic soon

There is the chance that Georgia beats Alabama and continues to win in the conference. If Georgia does slip up, you are about to experience one chaotic finish in the East. Georgia and Florida are the only undefeated teams in the division. Not to dismiss Florida’s start, but based on their level of play it seems unlikely that they will run the table in the conference.

All this sets up five teams with a legitimate shot to win the division. Also, factor in South Carolina playing the role of spoiler a time or two and this creates a very entertaining finish for this side of the conference.

Kentucky, Florida, Tennessee and Missouri all seem capable of getting additional conference wins. It is also very plausible to see any of these teams drop games in conference. Georgia’s two conference wins have come against potentially the two worst teams in the conference: South Carolina and Vanderbilt.

Just how good is Georgia? We should have a better idea after Saturday’s game against Alabama. If they become anything less than a dominant team in the SEC, the East division has the potential for any number of teams to represent it in Atlanta come December.

What’s most likely to happen? Georgia does enough to win the division. However, if we have learned anything from the beginning of this college football season, we have learned that the most likely outcomes do not happen as often as one may think.
