Ranking the SEC after Week 4
There was much exposure and separation in Week 4. It’s all starting to take shape, but we still don’t have a clue. No you don’t. Bro, you do not know who the 7th best team in the SEC should be. It’s a guess. You’re making a guess after four games. You know nothing. But let’s do it again!
1. Alabama (4-0)
Is it just me or is Alabama the most boring undefeated team in the nation? Is it just me, or is that way all the time?
(Last week: #1, beat Kent State 48-0)
2. Texas A&M (4-0)
I still don’t think the Aggies are elite, but they’re undefeated so here they are.
(Last week: #2, beat Arkansas 45-24)
3. Ole Miss (2-2)
Losing huge leads is a problem, but their only two losses were against some pretty good teams. They also finally exposed Georgia so they get a few points for that.
(Last week: #3, beat Georgia 45-14)
4. Auburn (2-2)
The Good Tigers are good between the 20s and took another step in the right direction. If you don’t like this ranking, tell me why any of the teams below them have done any better.
(Last week: #4, beat LSU 18-13)
5. Tennessee (4-0)
They hype machine is now in full force after the Volunteers mounted a huge comeback to beat a mediocre Florida team playing with their 2nd string quarterback. Does anybody remember Appalachian Sate and Ohio?
(Last week: #9, beat Florida 38-28)
6. Arkansas (3-1)
The Hawgs were beaten pretty soundly by Texas A&M, so they’re right around where we knew they’d turn out.
(Last week: #6, lost to Texas A&M 45-24)
7. Florida (3-1)
The Gators fed on an easy schedule to start the season, then they lost their QB, then they lost a huge lead at Tennessee. Middle of the pack.
(Last week: #5, lost to Tennessee 38-28)
8. LSU (2-2)
I don’t think LSU is that bad. They just have more offensive problems than Auburn seems to have inside the red zone. And that’s all with Leonard Fournette. Coach O might change that.
(Last week: #7, lost to Auburn 18-13)
9. Georgia (3-1)
Did we think a team that struggled with Missouri and should’ve lost to Nicholls is not going to get beaten badly by a top-tier SEC team?
(Last week: #8, lost to Ole Miss 45-14)
10. Missouri (2-2)
79-0 against anybody is impressive, but I still don’t want them in the SEC.
(Last week: #10, beat Delaware State 79-0)
11. Mississippi State (2-2)
The Maroons nearly came back against LSU, but then they give up 35 points to UMass. They’ll be bottom of the barrel the rest of the year.
(Last week: #11, beat UMass 47-35)
12. Vanderbilt (2-2)
I picked Vandy to lose to the Hilltoppers, then they scored on the last play to go to OT and eventually won. They aren’t THAT bad, but their only wins are Middle Tennessee and Western Kentucky. They just need to schedule more directional Appalachian schools.
(Last week: #12, beat Western Kentucky 31-30)
13. Kentucky (2-2)
The Wildcats beat a team from the SEC? Good job, C-A-T-S.
(Last week: #14, beat South Carolina 17-10)
14. South Carolina (2-2)
I don’t think the Gamecocks will end up being the worst team in the SEC, but they are right now.
(Last week: #12, lost to Kentucky 17-10)
