SEC Power Poll, Week 4


A little more clarity comes every week, right?  Geez, the SEC East is pretty much living down to expectations now.

  1. Alabama.  Ole Man River just keeps rolling on.
  2. Texas A&M.  Hey, these guys might be pretty good, y’all.
  3. Tennessee.  Give ’em credit; once the Vols got rolling, Florida had no answer.  And if they beat Georgia, that’ll probably be enough of a cushion to let them weather the storm of facing nos. one and two in the coming weeks.
  4. Ole Miss.  Remember the days when it was the other teams that called off the dogs after being up 45-0?
  5. Florida.  Fifth?  Eh, I guess so.
  6. Arkansas.  Back to earth, with a thud.
  7. Auburn.  Winning with defense and a field goal kicker… when did Gus morph into Tuberville?
  8. LSU.  Was there a more fitting way for Les Miles to go than mismanaging the clock in a loss?
  9. Mississippi State.  Really didn’t do anything special in beating UMass, but I figure they deserve the benefit of the doubt for being in the West.
  10. Georgia.  I wonder how many other P5 teams are 3-1 with a minus-20 in point differential.
  11. Missouri.  I bet the Tigers are feeling pretty bummed about that Georgia loss right now.
  12. Kentucky.  Look who climbed out of the cellar!
  13. South Carolina.  With that loss to Kentucky, the chances for bowl eligibility have been reduced to somewhere between slim and none.  And you know the old joke about slim.
  14. Vanderbilt.  Bowl eligibility?  What’s that?

    Your list is 1, then 4A, B, C, D and some nice parting gifts for the rest…thanks for playing.

  3. This weeks game will tell the story for both the Dawgs & the Vols.
    If the Dawgs don’t pull off the upset., We can start the Wait Till
    Next Year Slogan. Win & the Fla. Game becomes the main game.

      I’d be willing to bet we go 2-1 against S. Carolina, Vandy and Kentucky. We won’t beat UT, Florida nor Auburn. 6-5 heading into the Tech game.

    I admit I don’t know “the old joke about slim:.

    I’d probably flip Florida and Arkansas and maybe UGA and Miss St. but looks about right.

    Hey, at least we’re not South Carolina!

    Every team in the West above us. Truth! Speak it.

    Here’s the stat that no one wanted confirmed:

    No other P5 team with three wins has a negative point differential. If we expand the search to P5 teams with at least 2 wins, only Kentucky at -20 and Syracuse at -26 have worse point differentials than Georgia’s -19.

    Serious difference in how you and I see Mizzou, but the schedule will play out and we will know. I think they are in the Top 7 of this conference. Also think Auburn and Miss State are too high, but not much difference in the middle-bottom so who knows which piece goes where. TN could lock down the East on Saturday but they are closer to the middle of the conference.
