Yeah, I get it. I’m just not sure how much weight I put on it, though, other than recognizing that Alabama is head and shoulders above every team in college football this season. One thing I am comfortable saying is that the conference didn’t embarrass itself in the postseason by mailing in a bunch of disappointing efforts.
Did I mention how effing good ‘Bama is? Oh, yeah, I guess I did.
- Alabama. So which team is better, 2020 Alabama or 2019 LSU?
- Georgia. I’m not being a homer. Really. The JT Daniels version of Georgia deserves to be ranked second. Shoot me for saying that, if you want.
- Texas A&M. Give Jimbo credit for being handed an easier schedule this season and not screwing it up.
- Florida. The best four-loss team in the country, bitchez.
- Auburn. Even on a three-game losing streak to finish the season, Florida’s season was still miles better than Auburn’s.
- LSU. I suspect if LSU had played in a bowl game, it would have surpassed Auburn in this Power Poll.
- Ole Miss. They managed to finish at .500. It may not have been pretty, but it was entertaining.
- Kentucky. The ‘Cats sort of wheezed their way to a bowl win, but a win’s a win, after all.
- Missouri. The way the Tigers faded down the stretch, it’s probably a good thing they didn’t play in a bowl game.
- Mississippi State. Sure, they ended 4-7, but they beat LSU and finished on a winning note, which is more than you can say for Florida.
- Arkansas. Shame they didn’t get a crack at a bowl game, but the program’s got a lot more momentum than it did at the end of the 2019 season.
- Tennessee. Momentum? What’s that?
- South Carolina. I don’t think we’ll be hearing any cannon shots coming from the direction of Columbia for a while.
- Vanderbilt. The mother of all rebuilding jobs.
