The SEC Power Poll has been so successful in football, we decided to do one for basketball as well.  This is the first week for the poll.  First we will look at A Sea of Blue's ballot, then the final poll.

As with the football poll, the complete results are available at Garnet and Black Attack.

Comments:

  1. Florida is good, but they have no inside game.  They will not finish this high.
  2. We saw yesterday that the Razorbacks are tough, but they have a small margin for error when Clarke is off.
  3. Vanderbilt will be better than this.
  4. I'm still not sure about LSU.
  5. Georgia showed real grit against Tennessee.
  6. The Vols are not nearly as tough as we thought they would be.

Comments:

  1. Arkansas #2.  Heh.
  2. Alabama is talent-rich, but coaching mediocre.
  3. MSU should move up after yesterday.
  4. I wonder if Georgia just had a good game, or if they can keep the intensity we saw yesterday.
  5. Florida looks about right to me.
