For all the chaos that consumed college football last weekend, the SEC was a pretty orderly place to play.
- LSU (11-0, 7-0). In the swirling, stormy sea that is this year’s college football season, Les Miles is a rock. Think about that for a minute.
- Alabama (10-1, 6-1). Now think about this: Alabama has an easier path to the national title game than LSU does.
- Arkansas (10-1, 6-1). The Hogs rolled their third straight conference team. I still don’t think they have the offensive line or defense to match up with Alabama or LSU, though.
- Georgia (9-2, 7-1). Mark Richt said, “It’s hard to win nine in a row — period.” He’s right, you know.
- South Carolina (9-2, 6-2). The “loser of the Georgia-South Carolina game can’t win the division” meme announced its retirement Saturday afternoon.
- Auburn (7-4, 4-3). Revenge is a dish best served cold. And Nick Saban is a cold, cold man.
- Florida (6-5, 3-5). I wonder what Jeremy Foley was thinking when “Furman 22, Florida 7” flashed up on the scoreboard at the Swamp.
- Tennessee (5-6, 1-6). Derek Dooley described the win over Vandy as a “big step for our program.” Now that’s a sad comment.
- Vanderbilt (5-6, 2-6). After this week’s game, James Franklin ought to cement Vanderbilt’s new reputation by chasing after one of the Wake Forest coaches and coming up from behind to throw a rolling block into his knee.
- Mississippi State (5-6, 1-6). This team has seriously regressed. Dan Mullen has the Egg Bowl to be thankful for, at least.
- Kentucky (5-6, 1-6). A forgettable team enduring a forgettable season.
- Mississippi (2-9, 0-7). If I could figure out a way to vote ’em thirteenth, I’d do it.
