Remember that whole “It is tempting to boil the conference down to Alabama and the thirteen dwarfs” I led off the Week Seven Power Poll post with?
It’s getting more tempting.
- Alabama. It’s amazing that we’ve gotten to the point where what seems like a relatively ordinary goal, to prevent a team from scoring a touchdown on its opening drive, has become almost insanely daunting.
- Georgia. We’ll find out in less than a week if this ranking is a sensible reaffirmation, or somewhat delusional.
- LSU. 239 total yards of offense, and they won by sixteen. Think that’ll work against ‘Bama?
- Florida. What I just wrote about Georgia applies equally to the Gators.
- Texas A&M. Didn’t play, so they’re still underwater, points-wise, in conference play, but honestly, considering what’s below, I can’t rank the Aggies any lower than this.
- Kentucky. I know Benny Snell is good enough to put this team on his back en route to a win over Vanderbilt, but against Georgia, a starting quarterback going 3-9 for 18 yards ain’t gonna cut it.
- Auburn. Now the Gus Bus be rollin’, bitchez. Pay no attention to that killer defense giving up almost 450 yards to Ole Miss.
- Mississippi State. I think it’s fair to say Nick Fitzgerald isn’t the quarterback Joe Moorhead signed up for. That’s a shame, because that defense is pretty solid.
- South Carolina. Boom is having doubts about the offense. That likely won’t end well.
- Missouri. My, that was a tasty cupcake.
- Ole Miss. Damn, that defense sucks.
- Tennessee. They’ll always have Auburn. And November.
- Vanderbilt. The anchor is willing, but the flesh is weak.
- Arkansas. Tulsa changes nothing, unfortunately for the Hogs.
