Didn't see this as an existing topic, unless it got buried a few pages back, in which case that's a travesty. SEC stats are out (link below)!

With A&M's schedule not having to play Auburn, Bama, LSU, and Florida I don't see how they don't win the SEC regular season title.....Tennessee, UGA, and Mizzou are the only teams I can see giving them losses in conference play

Certainly an interesting start to the season.  The Aggies are impressing.  Auburn is starting to hit and Cooper has finally started to get things going again.  5 straight shutouts including no-no (Yale) and shutout of James Madison today.  We get JMU again Sunday.

I've been at Auburn for 12 years. The Yale Bulldogs did not have a legitimate hit. Auburn is a legitimate team again. Don't doubt.

Surprises in the conference so far:

TAMU performing so well.
Ole Miss performing so well. 
Alabama looking good, but not great.
Florida losing to Maryland and generally not putting up great offensive numbers.

Notable, but not exactly surprises: 

Mizzou looking shaky. 
Arkansas looking like it's improved.

You left out a real big and noticeable one -- the anemic hitting by Auburn. They are batting .279, good for 11th place in the SEC, after being the most dominant team offensively the last 2 years.

That does not count today when they got 1 hit vs JMU's Good.  But it does count a string of games against SIU (twice), Creighton (twice), Evansville, Mercer, N Dakota (twice), UMass - Lowell, and Yale.

Mizzou is looking a little more than shaky.

You're right, certainly about Auburn. They have found a way to keep winning, for the most part, though today against Good/JMU not so much. 

I don't know what to make of Mizzou - they beat UW and Notre Dame, but have lost to Illinois St., UCSB, and were Nebraska's first W this year. I haven't watched any of their games yet, so I didn't include them here. But definitely worse than expected.

Not really surprised by UF's lackluster offense so far this year.  They've been on this road for a year and a half (IMO).  I see potential, but the clutch hitting is still not there.

The Maryland game is the example when UF's opposition makes the defensive plays they should, doesn't give free passes, and UF doesn't get that lucky break.  Apparently Maryland is a terrible defensive team, but in UF's game they made the plays most teams should.  When UF's pitching lapses (1 inning so far this year), the offensive needs to step up.  Didn't happen against UM.

There have been a few games this year that, if not for an error or lucky break, UF's offense was not enough to beat a decidedly underdog team (Syracuse, Liberty come to mind).

Let's face it.  Once again it's gonna be UF's pitching that carries this team.

Arkansas must be facing some very bad pitching - way too much of an improvement with almost the same players.

Apples and oranges. The 2016 numbers are after a full season, including conference play. 

However, it certainly seems the Hogs have improved offensively. Other teams have faced the same pitching -- some have done better than Arkansas (see Kentucky this past weekend), but others have done much worse. 

The Hogs are improved. How much remains to be seen.

I mean, that's the point, Arkansas has basically only played bad teams, with bad pitching. The only decent pitching they've hit was in the CSUN game. They started 8-7 last year, but played a harder schedule. They literally might not win a conference game imo.

Having 2 pitchers automatically makes them leaps and bounds better.

I watched the Tennessee Ohio game too.  After the first inning the Ohio team was giving Tennessee everything they had.  They out hit Tennessee.   I would be curious if the Ohio pitcher hadn't struggled with the first couple of batters what would have happened.

She lead the country in strikeouts last year not a bad pitcher

I thought UT looked solid at MNC but Arnold did give up a little in her game I watched there.

And MiketheTiger should be happy about Jaquish finally living up to his standards.
