bama
lsu
uga
uk
au
aTm
mizzou
uf
usc
msu
om
vandy
arky
tenn
i think uga is better, but lsu clearly has the better wins. could say the same about bama, but their games are over at halftime. imo it's clear enough that the wins don't negate that.
haven't watch enough of uk, but based on resume and how poorly au off has been, i give them the edge.
i had msu in the top 3 preseason, they've really disappointed imo.
uf might be making a bounce back.
om might be top 4 in league on off, but that d is so bad. so so bad.
didn't know what to do with mizzou but gave uga at least a little test, so middle of pack seems right.
i wanted to put vandy higher, but i just don't think they're better than anyone above them.
arky and tenn - yeesh

LSU's games are over at halftime.  Just in week 3's case, the barn forgot that the game was over in their favor and for the second year in a row blew a double digit lead, lolz.

One might think Team L is better than Team G while Team G is more talented, as one example.

Got to give Ed O credit. I figured he was only good for one or two seasons at LasU but he’s got them looking good. 

I look for LSU to beat Florida handily but I confess I don’t know much about the gators this year.

Even die-hard Gators fans don't know what this team really is.  The line is surprising to me - Vegas knows something the rest of us don't.

I felt all preseason like there was a lot of whistling past the graveyard re: Auburn, re: offensive line.  You don't take those kind of hits and just keep going.  Also, Gus' offense seems to hinge on that dynamic runner, a Kerryon Johnson or a Tre Mason type.  It all looks QB-related with Gus, but it hinges on having that guy at tailback, and I don't see that guy on this team.

OAM has them ranked 10th.  I'm not quibbling with that, just pondering how they could be that bad, if they are.

Bad OL, lack of a great RB, and a QB struggling ....

They started the season top ten, right?  They would be I think the most over ranked team this season.

They still have a more than solid defense.  That offense has problems though.

the answer is obvious: expectations did them in, as always. i have no idea why or how, but au + expectations = failure. a tale as old as time.

One has to notice that Mullen has made a real difference at Florida.  One began to wonder when they lost to UK, but if some breaks went their way a bit more, they could beat UGA, they certainly played them tough to the end.

Franks is only a so-so QB, and they won't be a really good team until they fix that.

UK pulled one out, which is interesting.  UGA-UK next week apparently decides the East.  It's up there.  I think UGA pulls it out, but that running game by UK and their defense is scary.

Alright, let's see.....according to last week's ranking:
1, 2, 10, and 13 were off
3 beat 4
7 beat 5
6 somehow came back to beat 9
8 beat 12
11 beat 14
So my ranking wasn't too bad - only one minor upset



Almost Halloween 1-14 (that rhymes):
1. Alabama
2. LSU
3. Georgia
4. Kentucky
5. Florida
6. Miss State
7. Texas A&M
8. South Carolina
9. Missouri
10. Auburn
11. Tennessee
12. Vanderbilt
13. Ole Miss
14. Arkansas - may be the worst SEC team in recent memory

They were up 21-9 in the 3rd quarter and lost.  And you can't forget what they did in the early season.

Sunday Afternoon Updated for Nov 4:

1 - Alabama
2 - Georgia
3 - LSU
4 - Kentucky
5 - Miss State
6 - Florida
7 - Texas A&M
8 - South Carolina
9 - Missouri
10 - Auburn
11 - Ole Miss
12 - Vanderbilt
13 - Tennessee
14 - Arkansas



Tennessee's game was probably the 2nd-worst game by an SEC school this year (behind Arkansas vs North Texas).  14-3 over Charlotte, with one of their TDs being a kick return.  What???

Solid ranking, I might have LSU ahead of UGA.  Auburn is 6-3, they showed a bit of life yesterday.

Strikes me as a bunch of mediocre teams that can beat each other any Saturday and a couple of really bad teams and maybe a couple of decent teams and those Other Guys.
