Ranking the SEC after Week 9
After the 9th week of the season, we know who is bad, and I really don’t think anybody is terribly bad. But if you want to know who the 2-7 teams are, I don’t really know. Oh, and YOU’LL NEVER GUESS WHERE I HAVE AUBURN.
1. Alabama (8-0)
Alabama didn’t play anybody, but this time I mean they didn’t actually play a game.
Last week: ranked #1, BYE WEEK
2. LSU (7-1)
The Bengal Tigers were off as well, which allowed everybody to hype up a game that will be over at halftime.
Last week: ranked #2, beat BYE WEEK
3. Georgia (7-1)
Georgia looks really beatable. I know they actually were beaten badly by LSU, and I know this score doesn’t really show it, but they are beatable.
Last week: ranked #3, beat Flordia 36-17
4. Auburn (5-3)
Auburn got a much needed week off before a November to remember.
Last week: ranked #5, BYE WEEK
5. Florida (6-2)
Since beating LSU, the Gators have struggled with Vanderbilt and lost to Georgia. What does it mean?
Last week: ranked #4, lost to Georgia 36-17
6. Texas A&M (5-3)
The Aggies looked apathetic against a team as one-sided and apathetic as Mississippi State. That’s bad.
Last week: ranked #6, lost to Mississippi State 28-13
7. Kentucky (7-1)
I am not buying into Kentucky’s record at all. They were pretty much gifted a one-point win against Missouri. If you’re good, why do you need a gift to beat Missouri by one?
Last week: ranked #7, beat Missouri 15-14
8. Mississippi State (5-3)
The Bulldogs are a lot like LSU. Okay defense, a boring offense, and wins games they probably shouldn’t.
Last week: ranked #8, beat Texas A&M 28-13
9. Ole Miss (5-3)
The Rebels took a week off after losing to the upstart Auburn Tigers.
Last week: ranked #9, BYE WEEK
10. South Carolina (4-3)
The Gamecocks must be really good if they can beat Tennessee.
Last week: ranked #10, beat Tennessee 27-24
11. Missouri (4-4)
The Tigers were close to knocking off the paper Wildcats.
Last week: ranked #11, lost to Kentucky 15-14
12. Vanderbilt (4-5)
I did not expect Vandy to put 45 points on Arkansas. But they did.
Last week: ranked #13, beat Arkansas 45-31
13. Tennessee (3-5)
The Volunteers just can’t seem to get over the hump in the SEC. Maybe they’ll win a game in the SEC one day… What’s that? Oh no, I don’t remember that at all.
Last week: ranked #12, lost to South Carolina 27-24
14. Arkansas (2-7)
The Hawgs had their chance to show they were the best 3-win team in the nation, but they couldn’t get it done.
Last week: ranked #14, lost to Vanderbilt 45-31
