Not saying they will definitely win the league, but I think they should be considered the favorite. Especially if we get this Clanton transfer from UCF.
i think the key, as is with a lot of UK teams, will be the PG play. I'm not entirely sold on Ryan Harrow and I seen anything from Goodwin to suggest he can be the same type of outside threat as lamb. Poythress is potentially an elite defender and so is Noel.
Mizzou lost some key players but the Oriakhi transfer makes their frontcourt pretty solid as they are getting Bowers back this season after missing all of last season.
Are they the favorite in the SEC?Sure, I would agree that statement. But like i was saying to the poster above, it's not as clear cut that they are the NATIONAL favourites, there's a lot of great talent out there.
