SEC Power Poll, Week 6

Situation unchanged:  dominant at the top, sorry at the bottom and jostling for position in the middle.

  1. LSU (6-0, 3-0).  So scary that opponents’ starting quarterbacks are getting hurt the week before they play the Tigers.
  2. Alabama (6-0, 3-0).  Marking time until November 5.
  3. Arkansas (5-1, 1-1).  The Hogs look good when they play a little defense.
  4. South Carolina (5-1, 3-1).  So that’s what pulling out all the stops against the worst team in the conference looks like.
  5. Georgia (4-2, 3-1).  Hey, have you heard about the Bulldogs’ schedule?
  6. Auburn (4-2, 2-1).  If the Tigers don’t find a passing game soon, they’ll slide some more.
  7. Florida (4-2, 2-2).  In six games, Florida has yielded 115 points.  112 of those have come in SEC play.
  8. Mississippi State (3-3, 0-3).  Win, shwin.  Any week in which you allow UAB to hold its first lead of the season ain’t a good one.
  9. Tennessee (3-2, 0-2).  In his presser, Dooley rambled about bamboo and water, which I guess is zenspeak for “you can’t win in this conference without a running game”.
  10. Vanderbilt (3-2, 1-2).  If giving Alabama one tough half is progress, then the Commodores are progressing.
  11. Ole Miss (2-3, 0-2).  The bye week wasn’t long enough.  Next up:  Alabama.
  12. Kentucky (2-4, 0-3).  Vanderbilt minus the defense.
