For a conference that had eight bids in the NCAA Tournament, one would expect the majority to get out of the first round. Well, it has been the opposite for the SEC. Four of the eight teams have already been eliminated as lower seeds than their opponents.

The Kentucky Wildcats, Auburn Tigers, South Carolina Gamecocks and Florida Gators all fell to their opponents in the first round, leaving only two teams that were ranked in the top 25 of the AP poll remaining in the Alabama Crimson Tide and Tennessee Volunteers.

These results so far are just about the exact opposite of what folks thought would happen. And fans sure are giving their thoughts on X (formerly known as Twitter).

Here are some of the Top Tweets having Fun with the SEC’s so far Abysmal Performance in the NCAA Tournament.
