NCAA Expert Palm Rips SEC West, Auburn

How bad is the SEC West in basketball?  Pretty darn bad.  Just ask NCAA basketball guru Jerry Palm… as Paul Finebaum did yesterday on his radio show:

“When you look at the West, that’s an unmitigated disaster.  There isn’t one good team in the West… Mississippi is remotely competent, but if that division was a league unto itself it would rank below the Ivy League in the college RPI rankings.”

Ouch.  But Palm also took aim on Auburn specifically.

“Auburn might be the worst team ever in a major conference.  Or at least in the last generation in a major conference, not just the SEC.”

Where have ya gone, Charles Barkley?  (We know, Vegas.)

“This is my 19th year that I’ve been tracking the RPI and when you look at the big six conferences, Auburn has a chance to be the worst team in the RPI probably by 40 or 50 spots over the last 20 years from a major conference.  That’s how bad they are.  They are dreadful.  The numbers don’t lie.”

Actually, they might.  Palm says Ole Miss is “remotely competent.”  But on the hardwood they’re a miserable 1-4 in league play.
