The SEC West grows more interesting. The SEC East couldn’t be less interesting.
- Alabama. Does the Tide’s remaining stretch of games seem more challenging now than it did a month or so ago? Sure. Will it make a difference?
- Auburn. Still rolling, although doubt is beginning to creep in about the quality of Ole Miss.
- LSU. We’re about to watch Ed Orgeron’s interview for the head coaching job.
- Texas A&M. Any week you don’t play Alabama is a good week.
- Florida. Not a great team by any measure, but a well coached one. In the East, that makes you the front-runner.
- Ole Miss. At 3-5, you have to start wondering if they’re going to move proactively to ban themselves from postseason play to placate the NCAA.
- Tennessee. You had one job this week, Booch.
- Arkansas. Eh, sure, why not…
- Kentucky. Raise your hand if after the first week of the season you predicted the ‘Cats would be playing for bowl eligibility before the Dawgs.
- Mississippi State. It seems only fair to point out that right now MSU isn’t actually in last place in the West.
- Georgia. I thought the Process was supposed to be fun.
- South Carolina. Boom springs his version of an October surprise.
- Vanderbilt. This week’s game against Auburn looks pretty daunting, but with Mizzou, Ole Miss and Tennessee after that, maybe I shouldn’t write off their bowl chances just yet.
- Missouri. Man, has this program fallen on hard times, or what?
