We laid out every game, every win earlier this week in First and 10. Then the boss said, explain yourself, man.

So here we are.

The predicted record, ceiling and floor for every SEC team, top to bottom.

Georgia (11-1, 7-1)

Oregon (W), Samford (W), at South Carolina (L), Kent State (W), at Missouri (W), Auburn (W), Vanderbilt (W), Florida (W), Tennessee (W), at Mississippi State (W), at Kentucky (W), Georgia Tech (W).

The ceiling: Unbeaten regular season. Kirby Smart has officially replicated what Nick Saban built at Alabama.

The floor: 9-3, losses to South Carolina, Florida, Tennessee. Those 15 players selected in the NFL Draft isn’t just a loss of elite talent, it’s a loss of leadership and chemistry — or the glue of championship seasons.

Alabama (11-1, 7-1)

Utah State (W), at Texas (W), Louisiana-Monroe (W), Vanderbilt (W), at Arkansas (W), Texas A&M (W), at Tennessee (L), Mississippi State (W), at LSU (W), at Ole Miss (W), Austin Peay (W), Auburn (W).

The ceiling: Unbeaten regular season, the trifecta of QB Bryce Young, TB Jammer Gibbs and WR Jermaine Burton is lethal.

The floor: 9-3, losses to Arkansas, Texas A&M, Tennessee. There are still issues on the offensive line, and how much do we really know about Burton and WR Tyler Harrell — who have combined to catch 73 career passes.

Arkansas (9-3, 5-3)

Cincinnati (W), South Carolina (W), Missouri State (W), Texas A&M (W), Alabama (L), at Mississippi State (L), at BYU (W), at Auburn (L), Liberty (W), LSU (W), Ole Miss (W), at Missouri (W).

The ceiling: 11-1. QB KJ Jefferson develops into an elite thrower, and the defense finds its stride in Year 3 under DC Barry Odom.

The floor: 6-6. The loss of WR Treylon Burkes is understated, and the addition WR Jadon Haselwood is overstated — and the passing game stalls out.

Texas A&M (9-3, 5-3)

Sam Houston (W), Appalachian State (W), Miami (W), Arkansas (L), at Mississippi State (W), at Alabama (L), at South Carolina (W), Ole Miss (W), Florida (W), at Auburn (L), UMass (W), LSU (W).

The ceiling: 11-1, loss to Alabama. Jimbo Fisher gets his first impactful quarterback since Jameis Winston, and young 5-star defensive linemen are disruptive.

The floor: 5-7. Neither Max Johnson nor Haynes King works, and the transition of elite defensive players from the past two recruiting classes is slower than expected.

Kentucky (9-3, 5-3)

Miami (Ohio) (W), at Florida (L), Youngstown State (W), Northern Illinois (W), at Ole Miss (W), South Carolina (W), Mississippi State (W), at Tennessee (L), at Missouri (W), Vanderbilt (W), Georgia (L), Louisville (W).

The ceiling: 11-1. QB Will Levis has a monster second season as the starter, and young players along the defensive front seven grow quickly into roles.

The floor: 6-6. There are potential holes on the offensive line, and if UK can’t protect Levis, every game will be an adventure.

Tennessee (9-3, 5-3)

Ball State (W), at Pittsburgh (W), Akron (W), Florida (W), at LSU (L), Alabama (W), UT-Martin (W), Kentucky (W), at Georgia (L), Missouri (W), at South Carolina (L), Vanderbilt (W).

The ceiling: 11-1. The offense has no flaws, and a defense that’s still shy a handful of difference-makers gets off the field on 3rd downs enough for the offense to simply outscore teams.

The floor: 5-7. The league’s defensive coordinators — they’re pretty good, too, you know — catch up to Josh Heupel’s Blur Ball offense, and the Vols’ defense still can’t consistently get off the field.

LSU (8-4, 4-4)

Florida State (W), Southern (W), Mississippi State (L), New Mexico (W), at Auburn (W), Tennessee (W), at Florida (W), Ole Miss (W), Alabama (L), at Arkansas (L), UAB (W), at Texas A&M (L).

The ceiling: 10-2. High level of play and no distractions at quarterback (no matter who starts), and complete buy-in from a team that’s still too thin in numerous areas (hello, lines of scrimmage).

The floor: 3-9. Wins over Southern, New Mexico and UAB. A winless SEC season would be beyond disastrous — and would have everyone in Baton Rouge second-guessing the hiring of Brian Kelly.

Mississippi State (7-5, 3-5)

Memphis (W), at Arizona (W), at LSU (W), Bowling Green (W), Texas A&M (L), Arkansas (W), at Kentucky (L), at Alabama (L), Auburn (W), Georgia (L), East Tennessee State (W), at Ole Miss (L).

The ceiling: 10-2, We’ve seen this movie before with Mike Leach and his Texas Tech and Washington State teams. Experienced team, veteran quarterback, November games to remember.

The floor: 5-7. As long as QB Will Rogers stays healthy, the Bulldogs will score enough points to avoid a complete collapse. However, 5-7, with the experienced offense and a stout defense, would be a collapse.

Florida (7-5, 4-4)

Utah (L), Kentucky (W), South Florida (W), at Tennessee (L), Eastern Washington (W), Missouri (W), LSU (L), Georgia (L), at Texas A&M (L), South Carolina (W), at Vanderbilt (W), at Florida State (W).

The ceiling: 10-2, losses to Utah, Georgia. QB Anthony Richardson is a dynamic and dangerous threat who controls games, and there are second-team players who provide quality minutes.

The floor: 4-8. Richardson gets hurt early in the season, and a QB room devoid of talent has to find ways to win games.

South Carolina (7-5, 4-4)

Georgia State (W), at Arkansas (L), Georgia (W), Charlotte (W), South Carolina State (W), at Kentucky (L), Texas A&M (L), Missouri (W), at Vanderbilt (W), at Florida (L), Tennessee (W), at Clemson (L).

The ceiling: 9-3, losses to Arkansas, Texas A&M, Clemson. The revamped offense takes shape quickly, scores in bunches and protects a shaky defense.

The floor: 4-8. The bottom could fall out, and the Gamecocks would still get 3 nonconference wins (not Clemson) and a win over Vanderbilt.

Ole Miss (7-5, 3-5)

Troy (W), Central Arkansas (W), at Georgia Tech (W), Tulsa (W), Kentucky (L), at Vanderbilt (W), Auburn (W), at LSU (L), at Texas A&M (L), Alabama (L), at Arkansas (L), Mississippi State (W).

The ceiling: 9-3. The offense develops quickly and wins games early, and the defense develops late and prevents a late-season losing streak.

The floor: 5-7. Doesn’t matter who plays quarterback (Jaxson Dart or Luke Altmyer), the drop-off from Matt Corral will be significant.

Auburn (7-5, 3-5)

Mercer (W), San Jose State (W), Penn State (W), Missouri (W), LSU (L), at Georgia (L), at Ole Miss (L), Arkansas (W), at Mississippi State (L), Texas A&M (W), Western Kentucky (W), at Alabama (L).

The ceiling: 9-3, losses to Georgia, Mississippi State, Alabama. Winning big early eliminates off-field distractions, and the defense is so strong, the Auburn offense only has to dictate tempo with a strong run game and avoid disaster.

The floor: 3-9. A winless SEC season? The Tigers are too good defensively, but there’s so much raw negativity from the failed coup, it won’t take much to ignite it — like a Week 4 home loss to Missouri.

Missouri (4-8, 1-7)

Louisiana Tech (W), at Kansas State (L), Abilene Christian (W), at Auburn (L), Georgia (L), at Florida (L), Vanderbilt (W), at South Carolina (L), Kentucky (L), at Tennessee (L), New Mexico State (W), Arkansas (L).

The ceiling: 7-5. QB Brady Cook plays so well, he keeps the job the entire season and Missouri tackles better on defense and creates turnovers.

The floor: 3-9. It’s everything you thought it would be — with a loss to Vanderbilt. The reality: The season is probably somewhere in the middle, with the Tigers just as likely to reach 6 wins as 4.

Vanderbilt: (3-9, 0-8)

at Hawaii (W), Elon (W), Wake Forest (L), at Northern Illinois (W), at Alabama (L), Ole Miss (L), at Georgia (L), at Missouri (L), South Carolina (L), at Kentucky (L), Florida (L), Tennessee (L).

The ceiling: 6-6. If Wake Forest QB Sam Hartman still isn’t playing by mid-September, Vandy can win at home against the Deacs and everything could change. They have a better roster than Hawaii, Elon and Northern Illinois.

The floor: 1-11. Hawaii is a long trip. Hartman is healthy, and Northern Illinois plays like the MAC favorite. Suddenly, Elon is the only given on a schedule with no break.
