This week’s rankings will not get thrown out for fighting.
- Auburn. Cemented their position as the best team in the conference behind the quarterback who generates as many touchdowns as “no comments”. We’ll find out in the next few weeks which attribute defines Auburn’s season.
- LSU. If anyone is capable of pulling off the weirdest example of backing into a championship game, it’s Les Miles.
- Alabama. It didn’t get enough attention because of the games which decided the division winners, but this team got a resounding win over an SEC opponent on a six-game winning streak.
- Arkansas. I have to confess that the Hogs’ season grows more impressive as it goes on. They still have an outside shot at a BCS game.
- South Carolina. For Steve Spurrier, it probably doesn’t get much better than Saturday night. Well done, ‘Cocks.
- Mississippi State. There’s only so much magic Dan Mullen can work without a competent passing game.
JeffJohn Brantley is now ranked tenth in the conference in passing efficiency. All you pundits who called him the second best quarterback in the SEC last season can turn in your credentials at the front desk.
- Georgia. And the beat goes on, and the beat goes on…
- Kentucky. Struggled with Vanderbilt in becoming bowl eligible. If that doesn’t sum up the Cats’ season, I don’t know what does.
- Tennessee. Made Ole Miss their bitch and made ’em like it; the Vols keep the bowl eligible dream alive.
- Vanderbilt. Moved ahead of the Rebels because even though they lost, they didn’t quit.
- Mississippi. Amazing factoid: the two conference teams with worse defensive passing yardage numbers than Ole Miss are the division winners.
