So it turns out you’re not crazy. Neither is the guy/gal sitting next to you at or watching the game. The Southeastern Conference has indeed been the most foul-heavy conference over the last five seasons. In fact, foul calls have been down in every conference EXCEPT the SEC.
So what’s the deal? Why are SEC teams averaging two foul shots for each five field goal attempts? There isn’t a distinct answer, but it does appear that the SEC is “following its own path.”
Considering Kentucky has been mostly a drive-first team over the last decade, you can bet quite confidently head coach John Calipari doesn’t mind the uptick in foul calls handed out. In fact, though we’re mostly led to believe Kentucky is being hosed in almost every game, the Wildcats probably benefit just as much (if not more) from an abundance of whistles each game.

Will the former All-Pro find his old self with the star-studded offense?
My gut says OLIVIER SARR will be cleared by the @SEC. The @NCAA granted athletes in winter sports another yr of eligibility.Sarr has been cleared by the NCAA but is waiting for SEC clearance. Now has 2 yrs left so he meets SEC rule that states if u have only 1yr u must sit out.— Dick Vitale (@DickieV) October 15, 2020
