The Hogs were off this week, but the SEC Power Poll rolls on. Our ballot is below, with last week's rankings in parentheses:
1. (1) Alabama - Urban Meyer is probably wishing his retirement had lasted at least through last weekend.
2. (2) Auburn - The hype is building to a pretty massive level for these guys. Can they sustain it?
3. (4) Arkansas - Big game against A&M this weekend, but the Auburn one after that is looming particularly large.
4. (6) South Carolina - Will get their shot against Alabama next.
5. (3) Florida - We really enjoyed watching the Gators get pummeled by Bama.
6. (5) LSU - Might be the worst 5-0 team ever. But on the bright side, Les Miles is HILARIOUS.
7. (7) Mississippi St - The Hogs' trip to Starkville will be tough this year.
8. (12) Ole Miss - Welcome back!
9. (11) Tennessee - Deserves some sort of bump for essentially beating LSU on the road.
10. (9) Kentucky - Guys, you have to beat Ole Miss to earn any respect here.
11. (8) Georgia - Imploding...thanks, Dawgs, for making our best win of the season look worse and worse.
12. (10) Vanderbilt - Facing tough competition for the 12th place slot right now.
