Stetson Bennett, by the numbers

The Mailman is delivering when it counts.

Those third down numbers are eye-popping.  Must be why he’s ranked second in Total QBR.  (That’s nationally, not a conference ranking, by the way.)  In a non-G-Day context, to boot!

SEC Power Poll, Week Two

secpowerpoll2008_medium-1-1

Is the SEC East stronger than the West?  You can make the case for that, at least at the top… for now.

  1. Alabama.  Offensively, they remain a juggernaut.  Defensively, they remain good enough.
  2. Georgia.  The Dawgs have given up 16 points in two games, the conference’s lowest total.  Tennessee is next, at 39.
  3. Florida.  Like it or not, Trask is playing very well and Mullen directs a very good offense.  Pitts is incredible.  The defense, on the other hand…
  4. Auburn.  For the moment, I’m prepared to blame Georgia for Auburn’s bad night.
  5. LSU.  Bo Pelini is making $2.3 million a year.  Methinks he’s a wee bit overpaid.
  6. Tennessee.  The longest winning streak in the conference stretches to eight.  Before we get too excited, though, it’s worth noting that Jarrett Guarantano ranks behind Stetson Bennett in passer rating.
  7. Texas A&M.  The Aggie faithful are starting to yell for Urban Meyer.
  8. Mississippi State.  Sometimes you’re up.  Sometimes you’re down.  MSU swallowed the rat poison.
  9. Ole Miss.  Last year was Plumlee’s, but this year Matt Corral is third nationally in passer rating.  Is there an epic Egg Bowl in the making?
  10. Kentucky.  So near, and yet so far.
  11. South Carolina.  Running an 18-play, 74-yard scoreless drive that chews up almost eight minutes when you’re down by 14 with eight minutes to go in the fourth quarter?  That’s so Muschamp.
  12. Arkansas.  How can you not be happy for Sam Pittman?
  13. Missouri.  Already circling the date in two weeks when the Tigers play Vanderbilt.
  14. Vanderbilt. Not as bad as last year’s Vanderbilt is still bad.

Welp, we finally had it happen.  A tiebreaker ended in a tie.

Congrats to cmc4dawg and TrboDawg.

The seasonal race is also tied at the top.

In a related development, I’ve decided to shut the FP down.

(I keed, I keed.)
