SEC Power Poll: How I voted

Well, it's the second week of the SEC Power Poll.  Somehow, I missed posting my votes the first week, but that's gone so we'll start from here.

The SEC Power Poll is run by Cocknfire over at Garnet and Black Attack.  A good number of SEC bloggers contribute, so be sure and check them out every Tuesday to see how our fellow members of the New Media view the SEC.

For the record, here's how I see it this week:

Team CW CL OW OL Rank Comments
LSU (W) 1 0 2 0 1 Convinced yet? I am. VaTech is pretty good, but LSU made them look like a I-AA team.
Florida (E) 0 0 2 0 2 Defense still looks vulnerable giving up 336 yards, but I'll stick with the champs in this spot for now.
Arkansas (W) 0 0 1 0 3 Week off. Team ahead of them lost.
South Carolina (E) 1 0 2 0 4 Not much offense, but their defense got the job done.
Tennessee (E) 0 0 1 1 5 Good win against a fair team. Got to give 'em a boost.
Alabama (W) 1 0 2 0 6 Beating Vandy at Vandy is solid. I still need to see more against top-flite comp before I become a believer.
Georgia (E) 0 1 1 1 7 Held USC to 10% 3rd down efficiency and lost? Couldn't come up with even 1 of 3 fumbles?
Kentucky (E) 0 0 2 0 8 Kent State victory more impressive than EKU, but still not SEC quality. Still, hanging 56 points on last years' #24 team in total defense has to count for something.
Auburn (W) 0 0 1 1 9 On top of last week, this tears it. 4 turnovers, unable to close the deal. USF is not strong enough to beat a good SEC team at home. What does that say about Auburn?
Vanderbilt (E) 0 1 1 1 10 Not bad against 'Bama, but I see no reason to move them.
Mississippi State (W) 0 1 1 1 11 True to form against an even weaker team. Henig improved 600% in INT's. Still, a win away from home counts for something.
Mississippi (W) 0 0 1 1 12 Got beat by a team that should beat them. With a defense currently ranked 110th, who could put them any higher?
Overall comments: Auburn is looking bad. Can they recover? Georgia is in deep do-do in the East. LSU looks stronger than battery acid.
