SEC Power Poll, Week 7

secpowerpoll2008_medium

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.

You know you’ve been waiting for the next steaming hot take from Mr. Conventional Wisdom.

So many pundits promise consistency.  Tony’s greatness lies in that he actually delivers.

Envy and jealousy, EDSBS edition

Spencer Hall worries about the effect the 7-0 Bulldogs may have on his psyche:

When Georgia’s gone 7-0 before, it meant SEC titles at least, and in one modern case — the hallowed 1980 season — it meant a national championship. There is no snide joke about inevitably losing to Florida or Alabama here. I’ve been preparing my soul for the real possibility of consistently good Georgia football for several months now. For your own protection, I suggest you do the same.

You know for a Gator fan that’s especially gotta hurt.

Balance, when things are clicking

Jake Fromm is your SEC leader in yards per attempt.

Georgia has three of the conference’s top nine backs in yards per carry.

Pretty cool, eh?
