By the way, how’s that whole closing the gap thing going?

Just checking in on the 247Sports Composite 2022 SEC rankings to see how everyone’s doing, and find…

  • Georgia leads, with 204.50 total points.  The Dawgs are also first in average points, just behind ahead of ‘Bama (natch).
  • Only three teams have commitments from five-star players:  Georgia, LSU and Alabama.
  • South Carolina has only one commitment, but it’s not last in the conference.
  • That’s because Tennessee has zero commitments.

Sure, it’s early, but let’s not forget all the crowing Gator and Vol fans were doing early last year when their teams were highly ranked in the Composite.  It turned out to be fools gold, especially in Tennessee’s case.  The main point is that the usual suspects continue to be on the mother.

    I think UGA leads in that category too.

    Auburn is head on Vandy just barely to avoid least talented players. I like their trend.

  3. 2021 will really show Mullen’s real ability. Does he keep the team together, and win 10? 9? or does it start unraveling with ugly games and unexpected losses.

      I think Mullen is good for ~9 wins a year. He can scheme up an offense, but he’s still got 3rd and Grantham to hold him back. Plus, he doesn’t have time for recruiting.

        9 wins is the ceiling. And that assumes no injuries at QB or WR where they are very inexperienced and thin. Unless Grantham totally reinvents himself, they are going to hemorrhage yards on the ground and air. I’m not seeing how they can score enough to win the shoot outs they won against mediocre teams last year.

      It will be interesting. Their OOC and UT, Vandy, and USCe are six wins assured and, if they beat FSU, 7. Bama is a loss. UGA should be a loss. LSU should be a loss if they put it together with all the talent they amassed. That means that UK and Mizzou, both on the road, might be the keys to 9 wins. If you are a UF fan, it has to be concerning that in the season after an SEC East title your potential for a 9 win season comes down to potential question marks in Lexington and Columbia.

        I agree with your analysis except I think FSU may be good enough this year to beat FU. In a perfect world FU loses to UK, Mizzou and FSU on top of Bama, Georgia and LSU, at 6-6 goes to a middling bowl and loses to a mediocre team for a final 6-7 record for the ‘21 season. That’ll get some for sale signs in Clownboy’s front yard.

          You may be right. I haven’t really figured out what the hell the problem is at FSU. They should have plenty of talent. While I enjoy FU flaming out and writhing in misery, I also am fearful that at some point they will get a good coach who is a stellar recruiter. There’s nothing about that which is good for the Dawgs.

        • Or they get 9 or 10 wins losing big games and never getting to the dance, enough not to get fired but also not enough to be ok. Sounds like a team we are familiar with.

    Starting with Fulmer’s departure as HC in the 2000s, we’ve learned one thing about Tennessee, and that’s their ability to consistently wish the last coach was still on the payroll. I don’t see that changing with Heupel.
