SEC Power Poll | Gate 21

Week 5

All sorts of changes this week.  Here’s my ballot for this week in the SEC Power Poll, along with an feeble attempt at explaining why I’m such a moron..

It just ah-moooved me:







All I can say is “Wow!“  Slick Nicky and the Alabama Crimson Tide simply dominated the Dawgs.  The Tide gave up a little in the 2nd-half, but do you blame them.  Right now, they look like they will be playing in a BCS bowl.



The LSU Tigers found real competition from in Miss. State, but the game was never truly in question, and they did what it took to seal the deal.

Nice job by “the Hat.



The Auburn Tigers are really not very good on offense, managing only 7 points against the Vols—admittedly tough—defense.  The Tennessee QB more-or-less handed the game to the Tigers by fumbling it into the endzone, but a win is a win.  If they can figure out how to score, they will be tough


You heard it here first: After this weekend’s shakeup, I believe, the Vanderbilt Commodores will be in the race for the SEC East.

Who’da thunk it?


POLL-Down 4

The Georgia Bulldogs looked like goats during the first half of the game against the Tide.  Note to self: never try the “black-out” thing again.

I’m willing to attribute the loss to Larry Munson retiring … for now.

6. (tie)

POLL-Down 4

Guess who got caught looking past Ole Miss?

I have said a few times already that I felt the Florida Gators look beatable.  Well, now I’m sure of it.  Sloppy and half-hearted effort this week.

6. (tie)

The Kentucky Wildcats moved to 4-0 after pounding Western Kentucky 41-3.  Now that they’ve played every directional school in the country, it’s time to see if they are any good.



The Ole Miss Rebels showed the world what can happen when one team shows up believing they can win and the other forgets there is a game.  This is why the SEC is the toughest conference in the country.

Whatever the Very Reverend Houston Nutt is preaching, the Rebels are listening…


The South Carolina Gamecocks beat UAB 26-13.  The Vols managed a better score, which bodes poorly for the Thunder Chickens down the stretch, considering the Vols are now 11th.



The Mississippi State Bulldogs came up short against LSU, but they never gave up, and they were in the game until the final whistle.  A few breaks here and there, and they have a shot a win.


POLL-Down 1

The Tennessee Volunteers imploded yet again on the brilliant play of their quarterback.  They had Auburn beat, but apparently just couldn’t stand the thought of disappointing all those people in the stands.  Now, if they would just do that in Knoxville.

Perhaps the worst offense I’ve seen Tennessee field … ever.


It sure was nice of Mack Brown to give Bobby Petrino and the Arkansas Razorbacks a puppy after the game…

So there you have it. As always, feel free to let me know where I am wrong or right. Final ballots are due by Wednesday, so don’t take too long…

The Rest of the Power Poll
