Vanderbilt must be for real.
The Commodores are 4-0 and leading the SEC East. First is Vandy, followed by Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee and South Carolina.
In the Western division, Alabama appears to be back on top in Nick Saban’s second year at the helm.
The bigger surprise is the shakeup in the East, which indicates a shift in power. Even more shocking is the fact that Tennessee is off to a 1-2 start following a blowout loss to Florida last weekend. What does Kentucky coach Rich Brooks think of Vandy’s sudden rise?
“I think that the bottom half of the league has come up to the top half of the league,” Brooks said during his weekly press conference Monday at Wildcat Den. “It has been witnessed by some of the upsets that have happened in the last couple of years by, quote, the ‘bottom of the league teams’ like Mississippi State , Vanderbilt and Kentucky . It’s changing.”
