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

The Vols hung in there on the road at USCe and did beat Auburn on the road.

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

MSU had our number again. Looks like Stidham will “find his rhythm” against us next week too.

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.

We're deep enough into the season where who beat who head-to-head isn't much of a clarifier anymore.  Georgia would have played a better game vs Bama than LSU did.

I think Kentucky is too high and Auburn too low. I believe all the teams you consider mediocre are good teams in a league where Alabama and Georgia are a step above the rest. I think it is a very strong league top to bottom.

Bama
Georgia
LSU
MSU
Auburn
A&M
Missouri
Florida
Kentucky
South Carolina
Ole Miss
Vandy

The only real purpose I can think of in ranking teams is "who would beat who", but then you get the obvious issue.

I'd opine any of the 4-10 teams could beat each other fairly often.

11-14 would rarenly beat 4-10.  4-10 would rarely beat 1-3.

Granted I did not watch Florida's game, so I'm flying blind here, but I still think Florida, Georgia and LSU are in some sort of general mish-mash together.  I'm not sure there's a lot of meaningful distinction between them, except that UGA is more balanced, having some offense to go with their defense.  Florida's game against UGA did not go well, UGA's game with LSU did not go well, and LSU's game with UF, despite the score, didn't go all that well.  You put these teams in a bag, pick two, play the games again, and there's no telling what kind of game you'll get.

The Dawgs seem to be finding themselves a bit of late.  Earlier in the year I saw all sorts of problems, and still see a major issue with third and short for some reason.  The OL was dinged with injuries at UK and the new kids came in and did well.  UK statistically had a formidable defense especially against the run.  I was seeing holes in that game.

Swift also seems recovered from a nagging hamstring injury and is a weapon again.  Holyfield was getting most of the snaps because Swift had been not so swift.  Holyfield is a load to bring down, so they are kind of like Chubb and Michel.  And they will be back, hopefully with a healthy Smith next year.  This team is probably one year away because of the youth.

"Swift" is just such a great name for a running back.

Bama will be better in 2019 than 2018 for the same reason. They will return at least 15 of the two-deep on both sides of the ball.

The Dawgs started with one senior on offense, a very good one (center), 4 seniors on defense.  

Second string has 4 seniors on offense, but they have been usurped, and 3 on defense and one GR.  Three of those guys are quite good though.

i'm not sure au showed they're still a good as much as aTm showed, despite them having a new coach, they still have the ability to chock a game in nov. classic aggies move to keep from having to play anyone in early december.

No no no, Florida is below the other two.  The defense went from good to crap and has been crap for 3 games straight.
