Right now, there’s a clear top to the conference and a clear bottom. The middle is in a slight state of flux.
- 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.
- Alabama. You have to be impressed with the consistent way this team goes about its business.
- 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.”
- 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.
- 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.
- South Carolina. Very quietly, the ‘Cocks have a legitimate shot at a 9-3 season.
- Mississippi. Jevan Snead had better show up real soon if the Rebels want to salvage this season.
- Arkansas. The people who thought this team was a darkhorse candidate to break out this season look pretty foolish right now.
- 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.
- Kentucky. At least the ‘Cats don’t play any more top five teams this season. Losing Lindley doesn’t help, though.
- Mississippi State. Josh Nesbitt: 11-14, 266 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT. Hey, did we mention that Houston comes to town this week?
- Vanderbilt. Forget about a bowl game. Will these guys win an SEC game this season?
One response to “SEC Power Poll Ballot – Week Five”
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.
