The confusion ends here (we hope): SEC East scenarios; get informed (we hope)

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- OK, directly from the Southeastern Conference's mouth, here are the most likely scenarios for the confusing SEC East Division...

Scenario No.1, Tennessee advances: If Georgia, Tennessee, Florida and South Carolina are tied at 4-4 in the SEC East, then Tennessee advances to Atlanta because the Vols will be 2-1 against the three opponents and Georgia, South Carolina and Florida will be 1-2.

Scenario No.2, Florida advances: If Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee and Georgia are tied at 5-3, then Florida wins because the Gators will be 2-1 against Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky. Kentucky could also finish the season 2-1 against those teams but Florida would go to Atlanta by virtue of beating Kentucky.

Scenario No.3, Florida advances: If Florida, Georgia and Tennessee are tied at 5-3 in the SEC East then Florida advances by virtue of a three-way tie-breaker. Florida is 4-1 against SEC East opponents while Georgia and Tennessee have two losses in the SEC East.

Scenario No.4, Kentucky advances: If Florida loses tonight to South Carolina, then Kentucky controls its own destiny with games still remaining against Georgia and Tennessee.

Scenario No.5, Georgia advances: Georgia must win out to advance. It holds no tie-breakers.

Got that, people!?! Tomorrow I'll be explaining with Calculus how Shakespeare was Lady MacBeth's father and Hamlet's nephew.
