Ranking the SEC after Week 3
Is it possible that we already know where everyone will fall? Should we play the rest of the season? I guess so… and YOU’LL NEVER GUESS WHERE I HAVE AUBURN.
1. Alabama (3-0)
Sadly, “the best Alabama team that Nick Saban has coached” hasn’t had a test, and won’t have a test until maybe the LSU game in November.
Last week: ranked #1, beat Ole Miss 62-7
2. Georgia (3-0)
I’m still not sure what Georgia is, but like Alabama they won’t have a test until the play LSU in four weeks. Why are the “best” teams this way?
Last week: ranked #3, beat Middle Tennessee 49-7
3. LSU (3-0)
Do I think LSU is better than Auburn? Not really. Auburn was sort of flat, had two turnovers, and was penalty-ridden, yet still held the lead until there were 2 seconds left in the game. But I’ll put the Fightin’ Orgerons here for now just because…
Last week: ranked #4, beat Auburn 22-21
4. Auburn (2-1)
Read what I said about LSU.
Last week: ranked #2, lost to LSU 22-21
5. Mississippi State (3-0)
Surely the Maroons will play somebody soon. //checks schedule… at Kentucky, hosting Florida, then hosting Auburn. So it will be 3 weeks before they play somebody.
Last week: ranked #5, beat Louisiana-Lafayette 56-10
6. Texas A&M (2-1)
The Aggies will ride the almost win over Clemson for a bit. Oh wait, no they won’t. They’ll lose by 100 to Alabama this weekend. Back down the ladder you go.
Last week: ranked #7, beat UL-Monroe 48-10
7. Ole Miss (2-1)
That was fun while it lasted, wasn’t it? The Rebs can score on Texas Tech and Southern Illinois, but that’s about where it ends.
Last week: ranked #6, lost to Alabama 62-7
8. Missouri (3-0)
Last season, Missouri scored 3 points against Purdue. This year, Missouri beat Purdue by 3. I think we’ve found the conference for the Tigers!
Last week: ranked #8, beat Purdue 40-37
9. Kentucky (3-0)
The Wildcats have had fun the first few weeks, but that probably ends next weekend and goes away for a long time.
Last week: ranked #9, beat Murray State 48-10
10. South Carolina (1-1)
Hard to move the Gamecocks when their winnable game against Marshall was cancelled.
Last week: ranked #10, game cancelled
11. Vanderbilt (2-1)
So close to beating Notre Dame. Does that really mean anything?
Last week: ranked #11, lost at Notre Dame 22-17
12. Florida (2-1)
Wow, I was surprised that the McElwain Bowl was so one-sided.
Last week: ranked #12, beat Colorado State 48-10
13. Tennessee (2-1)
Tennessee beat ETSU then UTEP. What’s next? UNLV?
Last week: ranked #14, beat UTEP 24-0
14. Arkansas (1-2)
Ok, for real? I mean are you serious. You can not be serious.
Last week: ranked #13, lost at North Texas 44-17
