    It is up to the member institutions to determine how the conference is perceived. Recently more schools have been willing to shell out the $ for basketball coaches which leads to better players, more success and better recognition.

    In times when all the $ went to football (except for UK) the SEC probably somewhat deserved it's perception as a football conference. Not to mention going back to the late 90's Bama, LSU, UF, Auburn and UT have all won national titles--some of them multiple. Through in UGA and aTm and that'll make people think football.

    The SEC has been on an upswing for a while now. I never understood the knocks this conference got before last season. It's really hard to win on the road in conference.
    Arkansas beat LSU today. Just not many middle tier teams in ANY conference beating ranked opponents on their home court. The SEC is getting back to where it was in the 80's and that is the toughest conference in America.
    I love the direction where SEC basketball is going. Better coaches means better recruits and better basketball. I would love for this trend to continue on the upside. The 80's had some great basketball in conferences. The ACC and Big East were both real tough.

    Ona other note, UK picked up their defensive intensity to win this game vs Florida. I do like the poise of this team. They simply do not panic. This team could be special if they continue to improve.

    but aint it great out of all the years of hearing this is a football only conference? Seems like no one remembers the years there were two
    SEC teams in the final four.

    There are rumblings this year of the Big 10 being the toughest conference. I am not sure about that. If UT and us keep it up, February 16th in Rupp would be the game of the year so far. I am LOVING our toughness lately! These Cats are fighters man. We look really good right now but boy is there room for improvement. That's a scary thought.

    Yeah Pobilly, it took a while to shake off that dUKe game. I like my team right now!

    I couldn’t watch or listen. DVR set 😀

    Way to battle Cats! Much like my son's 6th grade team winning their season ending tournament today. With a very similar final score of 64-51.
