SEC Power Poll Ballot – Week Five

Right now, there’s a clear top to the conference and a clear bottom.  The middle is in a slight state of flux.

  1. Florida. I’m not going to move the Gators down for having a bye week.  Besides, we’re about to get a better picture of their mettle.
  2. Alabama. You have to be impressed with the consistent way this team goes about its business.
  3. LSU. They remind me of the penultimate line from the original Bad News Bears“we still don’t think you’re all that good… but you got guts.”
  4. Auburn. Anybody think they’re 5-0 playing Georgia’s schedule?  Me neither.  But I didn’t think the Tigers would be 5-0 playing Auburn’s schedule, either.
  5. Georgia. Two losses to teams ranked in the top ten.  I’m not going to penalize the Dawgs too much for losing to #4 in the last minute.  But that’s not to say that they’re not driving me crazy.
  6. South Carolina. Very quietly, the ‘Cocks have a legitimate shot at a 9-3 season.
  7. Mississippi. Jevan Snead had better show up real soon if the Rebels want to salvage this season.
  8. Arkansas. The people who thought this team was a darkhorse candidate to break out this season look pretty foolish right now.
  9. Tennessee. All the “must win” talk about this week’s game with Georgia is just silly.  Yes, it looks like this team is headed towards a repeat of last year’s 5-7 record, but that’s going to get blamed on Fulmer, too.
  10. Kentucky. At least the ‘Cats don’t play any more top five teams this season.  Losing Lindley doesn’t help, though.
  11. Mississippi State. Josh Nesbitt:  11-14, 266 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT.  Hey, did we mention that Houston comes to town this week?
  12. Vanderbilt. Forget about a bowl game.  Will these guys win an SEC game this season?

    I would not bet the farm on UGA this week. Our O may not even score on UT’s D. This game will come down to Special Teams and Turn-overs and which team wants it more. I’m just not sure that team is us anymore.
