My SEC Power Poll ballot, Week 2

I learned a fair amount about the SEC this past weekend – more than I expected, to be honest.

  1. Alabama.  Can a crushing be workmanlike?
  2. LSU.  Seal-clubbed Washington.  Can we just skip to November 3rd and be done with it?
  3. Georgia.  You can explain most of the gap between the Dawgs and the two teams in front of them in two words:  offensive lines.
  4. South Carolina.  Gamecocks score on a 51-yard touchdown pass with 54 seconds left in the game to win by 38.  That’s my Spurrier!
  5. Tennessee.  It looks like the annual meteor game with the Gators is setting up nicely.
  6. Florida.  I’ve still got questions about the offense, but the defense put on a clinic on how to shut down an Air Raid attack in the second half.
  7. Mississippi State.  I thought about ranking them higher, but I’m beginning to think that beating Auburn may not be much of an accomplishment this year.
  8. Missouri.  Clearly showed they were competitive, but if the Tigers can’t fix things on the offensive line, it’s going to be a rougher year than they expected.
  9. Texas A&M.  Yep, the good teams play defense for four quarters in the SEC, Aggies.
  10. Arkansas.  Arkansas’ poor defense wasn’t a surprise.  Letting Tyler Wilson get pounded by a Sun Belt defense was.  Have fun with the boys from Tuscaloosa this week, fellas.
  11. Auburn.  The reason I rank them lower than Arkansas?   Neither has a defense, but at least the Hogs have a quarterback.
  12. Vanderbilt.  It’s starting to look like a one step forward, two steps back kind of year for the Commodores.
  13. Ole Miss.  Can you guess who leads the SEC in total offense after two games?  Guess who won’t by the end of the year.
  14. Kentucky.  Thank heaven for out of conference games.
