Lose by 46 and you’re going to the bottom of the list.
13. Texas A&M
Losing at home is not a good start to SEC play. Their upcoming schedule looks like things could get very ugly for them as well.
12. South Carolina
Few had the Gamecocks beating Florida before Saturday, and even fewer thought a comeback was possible with them down 14 with 11 minutes to go. Chris Silva’s dunk was an early season shock.
A 10 point home loss to Ole Miss is not a good sign for the rest of the conference slate.
10. Ole Miss
Kermit Davis now has the Rebels at 11-2 and starting well in SEC play. They’re putting together about as good of a start as you could ask for in Oxford.
Arkansas didn’t look overly impressive so won’t move much by beating A&M, but it was a win they needed.
One of four teams that didn’t play this weekend. The only reason they’ve moved down is because of Bama’s upset.
It’s been three days and I’m still wondering what the hell happened to the Gators.
That win over Kentucky is the best thing that happened in Alabama athletics this week. Who saw that coming?
No game this weekend, benefits from Florida’s drop.
They looked like things were starting to come together and would be a force in SEC play. They still will likely be at the top but tripping out of the gate isn’t fun.
3. Mississippi State
One of two teams in the conference with just one loss. They’ll get conference play started with a winnable road game against South Carolina
They didn’t look their best during the Holidays, let’s see if over a week off gives them a reset to get back on track.
Going to go out on a limb and say we don’t see another beatdown as bad as the one Tennessee gave the Bulldogs in the SEC this year.
