SEC Power Poll, Week Two

So much for last week’s “SEC is back, baby!” narrative.

  1. Alabama.  Another week of staying above the fray, and it looks like the Tide has settled on a quarterback.  But I’m sure Saban can find fault with something.
  2. Texas A&M.  Arizona State may not be what we thought, but I’m not going to penalize TAMU for taking care of business in its cupcake game.
  3. Mississippi.  Back to back seventy-three-point outbursts are nothing to sneer at.
  4. Georgia.  A road win against a conference opponent is a road win against a conference opponent, y’all.
  5. LSU.  I’m beginning to think the Tigers are the West’s analogue to Georgia.  Or maybe Georgia is the East’s analogue to LSU.
  6. Tennessee.  Yeah, I moved the Vols up after a loss.  That’s how good the rest of the conference’s week was.
  7. Auburn.  Pulled off an epic, come from behind overtime win against Alabama… er, a West division rival… um, an SEC opponent… a Sun Belt team?… eh, forget about it.
  8. Mississippi State.  Three quarters of sloppy play were just a little too much for one quarter of excellence to overcome.  Which may be a metaphor for MSU’s season.
  9. Kentucky.  I hesitate to say that a road win at South Carolina reflects a changing of the guard in the SEC East, but you have to think the improved recruiting that’s occurred under Stoops is paying off.
  10. Missouri.  Winning ugly is both winning and ugly.
  11. Florida.  The potential game-tying drive is aborted when the ball slips out of the quarterback’s sweaty hand.  Well played, Swamp.
  12. South Carolina.  Has anyone considered the possibility that Spurrier got caught looking forward to the Georgia game?
  13. Arkansas.  Lose to Toledo after giving Ohio State crap about its schedule? Karma.
  14. Vanderbilt.  Second straight week the Commodores covered the spread.  Derek Mason is on a roll.
