Down SEC

NCAA Football: Massachusetts at Tennessee Knoxville News Sentinel-USA TODAY Sports

I honestly need a gap in between ranks 5 and 7 and put a bunch of teams tied at 8, 9, and 10.

14. Missouri (Last Week: 14)

Thank God for Mizzou might be a common phrase around the SEC this season, until they play the Hogs and come from behind and beat us in some crazy stupid way.

13. Ole Miss (Last Week: 13)

Ole Miss had a bye.

12. Vanderbilt (Last Week: 10)

Vanderbilt got throttled 59-0. They had nothing for Bama.

11. South Carolina (Last Week: 11)

Remember when much maligned Arkansas kicker Alex Tejada hit a game winner over ECU in the Liberty Bowl to give Bobby Petrino the first Bowl game win for Arkansas since 2003? It didn’t feel like much, but it was a great moment. South Carolina kicker Parker White totally redeemed himself, by kicking a game winner, but with it being a 17-16 win over Louisiana Tech, White is the only real bright spot.

10. Kentucky (Last Week: 9)

Kentucky gave Florida everything they had, but sometimes history can mean a lot and it did in this game.

9. Arkansas (Last Week: 8)

You can’t lose to another middling SEC team 6 years in a row and get any respect.

8. Texas A&M (Last Week: 12)

Ugh.

7. Tennessee (Last Week: 7)

The Vols looked flat out bad against UMASS. UMASS went to 0-5 after losing to Tennessee.

6. LSU (Last Week: 6)

LSU beat Syracuse. Everyone above them sucks.

5. Mississippi State (Last Week: 4)

The big Georgia Bulldogs got out to a lead against the Tiny Starkville Bulldogs, and never looked back. Forced to play from behind for all four quarters, Mississippi State was unable to match the aerial attack from Georgia going 15-33 for 103 yards.

4. Florida (Last Week: 5)

It’s not how you win, it’s THAT you win.

I said that last week, and I guess I have to hold true for this. Florida needed a 14-3 4th quarter to come from behind and down the Wildcats and keep their win streak alive. I can’t put any of these jokers ahead of them.

3. Auburn (Last Week: 3)

The Auburn Tigers had the turnover bug last week, but infected Mizzou this week getting 3 fumbles and an interception off the other Tigers. Dominant win for the War Eagles.

2. Georgia (Last Week: 2)

Jake Fromm went 9-12 for 201 yards and two touchdowns. I might just be posting impressive stat lines for the Bulldogs all season, because they might be more interesting than the dominance shown in Athens.

1. Alabama (Last Week: 1)

Last week I said

Bama won’t be able to sleep walk in Nashville this weekend.

They slept walk over Vanderbilt 59-0... like woah.
