Parity king in the SEC

Kevin Stallings: “I think there are probably not any dominant teams in our league like Kentucky was a year ago. I expect it to be a battle to the end of the 16-game schedule for the conference championship. Winning and winning on the road in this league is very difficult and we are all finding that out.”

Southeastern Conference coaches expect the competitive play that has left no SEC team without a loss just three games into league play to continue all season.

“I think the (SEC) West is better than it was a year ago,” said Florida coach Billy Donovan. “The league last year had Kentucky that clearly was head and shoulders above anybody else in the league. This year there is tremendous parity and anything could happen.

“I think in this league there is a lot of parity and if you don’t play well, you could be in for a long night. I think there will be a lot of peaks and valleys. In this league, you have to play well in all areas to be successful.”

Vanderbilt twice had double-digit leads in road games, and lost both times.

Vandy coach Kevin Stallings says it is too early to see any definite trends about league play.

“I think there are probably not any dominant teams in our league like Kentucky was a year ago. I expect it to be a battle to the end of the 16-game schedule for the conference championship. Winning and winning on the road in this league is very difficult and we are all finding that out,” Stallings said.
