The separation between the top three and the rest grows larger every week.
- Florida. Tebow and the boys got untracked against Georgia. We’ll see if that’s all the Gators needed to jump start their offense for the rest of the year.
- Alabama. No bye week bounce, but still looking good. McElroy needs to do a little jump starting himself, though.
- LSU. Solid beatdown of a cupcake. But this is the week that’ll tell us what we need to know about the Tigers.
- Tennessee. Somebody has to go in this slot. If you count moral victories, the Vols are 4-1 in conference play. That’s gotta be worth something.
- South Carolina. Has the slide started? It’s too early to tell, perhaps, but a narrow win over Vandy and a sloppy loss to Tennessee don’t bode well for Spurrier’s team.
- Ole Miss. When Snead plays well, the Rebels look like the fourth-best team in the conference. When he doesn’t, they’re eighth-best. Average that out…
- Georgia. Know who Lee Sweeney is? If you answered (a) the most excited player in Division 1-AA this week or (b) Tennessee Tech’s starting quarterback, you’re correct.
- Auburn. Jevan Snead was just what the doctor ordered for these guys. Furman this week doesn’t hurt, either.
- Arkansas. They beat Eastern Michigan handily. That and five bucks gets you taken care of at Starbucks.
- Mississippi State. It’s hard to believe I’m doing it, but I’m moving these Dogs up one more slot. Dan Mullen’s done a fine job, considering what he’s got to work with this season.
- Kentucky. Poor ol’ Rich Brooks is running out of bodies.
- Vanderbilt. You knew that lead against Georgia Tech was never going to hold up, right?
