SEC Power Poll, Week 7


And then there were two.

Really, is there any more that needs to be said about this week’s SEC than that?

  1. Alabama.  Is there any more of a lock than betting on a Nick Saban team to crush a conference opponent the week after a somewhat close game?
  2. Georgia.  “The offense definitely picked up our slack,” said inside linebacker Roquan Smith…  now there’s something I didn’t expect to read.
  3. Auburn.  Gus’ nonchalance aside, with the loss to LSU, the Tigers pretty much have to run the table to make it to the conference title game.
  4. Texas A&M.  You can’t spell winning ugly without winning.
  5. LSU.  Ed Orgeron stared into the abyss and won for the second straight week.
  6. Florida.  Nice uniforms, Gators.
  7. Kentucky.  Still America’s ugliest 5-1 team.
  8. South Carolina.  Tennessee football, a wholly owned subsidiary of Boom Enterprises, Inc.
  9. Mississippi State.  Finally emerged with a win.  Then again, who doesn’t beat BYU these days?
  10. Ole Miss.  The Landsharks, formerly the Black Bear Rebels, have a conference win to their name, which is more than you can say for the last four schools.
  11. Tennessee.  It could be worse, Booch.  At least your team isn’t playing Alabama this week… oh, wait.
  12. Arkansas.  This is a putrid team with a marginally better defense than the ones at Missouri and Vandy, which is why I had to place the Hogs twelfth.
  13. Missouri.  The best thing the Tigers have going for them at this point is that they get to play Vanderbilt.
  14. Vanderbilt.  The Commodores’ defense is one slim point shy of yielding fifty points a game in conference play.

    LOL #3 by default.

    I’m thinking the oldest rivalry is gonna be a Luther for you guys.

      I feel we are better than each of the teams left on our schedule but when you put them together in back to back weeks…
      I admit. I have reached the part of our schedule where I may hold my breath at times. I know the fans will NOT be looking past UF or Auburn. The players better not either…not that I think Kirby will let them. I’m hoping the 28 points given up to Mizzu was our ‘let down’ for the season.

    We boast of conference wins over # 9, 11, 13, and 14, in your poll. What’s the opposite of Dawg porn?


  4. I guess winning the bye week does translate into winning the game week. Next week is Tennessee’s bye week … as in, “Bye, Booch, you services are no longer needed.”

    The bricks, the Champions of Life and the 5-star hearts are headed for the trash can.

    #11 “oh, wait” …got a laugh from me.

    Is anyone else worried about USC being a trap game? I know there is an obvious difference in talent, but they look well-coached and have a good quarterback. Playing them between Florida and Auburn worries me.

      Yeah, that’s something to think about. As PTC says, “Kirby is on it.” We may get caught looking forward to Auburn in that game, but I think it only results in us winning by 20 instead of 30.

      The remaining schedule is full of traps. SC and KY both can do harm, and of course FL and AU will get the attention. Tech will give us our best shot but I expect Kirby to put extra emphasis on that one.

    Wouldn’t it be just as easy and accurate to list nos. 3-14 alphabetically at this point?
