GOG 2011-12 #18: SEC Week 9

It's a set of Senior Day games for the Cats this week. First up they will honor Darius Miller and Eloy Vargas in Rupp Arena against Georgia - the last team to beat the Cats at home on a Senior Day 4 years ago. On Sunday they will play at Florida in the final day of the regular season with a chance to go 16-0 in conference play - a feat last achieved by the 2003 Suffocats who also finished perfect by winning at Florida on the last day of the season.

Remaining GOG Schedule

  • GOG #19: SEC Tournament
  • GOG #20: NCAA Tournament

GOG introduction and rules here.

GOG #17 has been scored. Congratulations to a2d2 and wildcatfaninexile for the win!

Match-up and player information for Georgia and Florida.

Note on Question 7: I presume Miller and Vargas will both start, but if they don't then question 5 will not count towards the total points.
