We're all well aware that the sages of Garnet and Black Attack and our very on Truwhateveritis are editors of the weekly SEC Power Poll. Tru hasn't posted his votes (I don't think) just yet, so I thought I'd take a moment and put together my own. Naturally, this doesn't count whatsoever in the big-boy poll, so I can put the Cats ANYWHERE I PLEASE, SUCK IT VOLZAAAAAHHHGGH!
Excuse me, blacked out there. Anyway, hyah it is:
Alabama - The score was close but the game wasn't so much. They were pretty dominant.
LSU - Washington outgained the Bayou Bengals and rolled up over 400 yards in a loss. That Tiger D needs to get it together fast.
- Ole Miss - Jevan Snead & Co. looked pretty shaky in the first half against Memphis. Not sure whether or not to chalk it up to first-game jitters. The D did look pretty solid.
Auburn - They were actually losing for a minute before the managed to take control and pile on a pretty good Louisiana Tech team.
Kentucky - Only here because they were the one of the few schools to play a D-1 team and beat them into the turf.
- Tennessee - Yes, it was against Western Kentucky. But they showed they had a lot more on offense than anyone thought.
Georgia - There are lots of excuses for losing that game, but Okie State's defense had a lot to do with it.
- South Carolina - The defense was OMG scary, the offense was pretty terrible. Still, a win over a BCS school should count for something.
- Florida - Might as well have played a high school team. Are they really worse than any of the teams above? Of course not, but until they play someone other than a 1-AA team, they don't get the cred.
- Vanderbilt - Looked great in their opener against Western Carolina. But beating cupcakes won't get you very far in the SEC, it's common practice.
Arkansas - Petrino may have that offense in high gear again, but it's hard to tell against Missouri State.
- Mississippi State - Could be better than we thought. I don't think they put up 47 points in all of 2008.
Some caveats: Please remember this is a week-by-week deal. Commies fans will not like being ranked where they are, but I ask that they remember that they played a bad team from the FCS. Kentucky is probably not better than UT, Georgia, and definitely not Florida, but they looked better against tougher competition (marginally, anyway). That being said, feel free to rip me apart in the comments.
