Even though Alabama took the weekend off, it appears that the SEC decided to go and force itself into one big mess. Multiple teams still have multiple shots at their divisions, although it is starting to sort itself out through attrition.
As always, please remember to visit Garnet and Black Attack on Tuesday to see the results of the SEC Power Poll. Here is my current ballot:
There was some kind of bar fight this weekend. Apparently the bouncers thought Coach Lester’s hat wasn’t “dope”.
This was an odd game. Auburn had 400 yards of offense, yet only led Ole Miss by a TD with 3 minutes to go in the game. I know Tubby didn’t want a complex offense for Saturday, but you have to put the ball in the endzone when you rack up that much yardage.
I really hope a Dawg fan pulled something similar to this on a Gator fan:
UGA fan- “HEY! Do you know him?”
UF fan- *looks around* “Know who?”
UGA fan- “KNOWSHON!!!” *high fives buddy frat boy in red pants and black shirt*
This defense has been getting by because their offense has been able to move the ball. They aren’t very good at stopping people.
I have a feeling there will be extra security following the Saban family this weekend as LSU arrives in Tuscaloosa.
State is a dangerous team, but I have a feeling UK wasn’t expecting the bulldogs to show up after that WVU beating they took.
Fulmer is hanging on by a thread at this point. Good win from a seasonal standpoint, but they still have some weaknesses that could be exploited by Vanderbilt or Kentucky.
8. South Carolina
Two things kept South Carolina from winning. (1) They didn’t do jack in the 1st half. (2) A visor-less Spurrier was unable to shield his eyes from the high levels of orange in Neyland, causing him to lose focus on what plays to call during OT. Yes, even at night the Vol’s highlighter orange is uneasy on the eyes.
9. Mississippi State
They get a bye week after blasting Kentucky. Color me worried since their next game is Alabama.
Thank goodness for easy non-conference schedules.
One win away from a bowl game. Should be an interesting match-up against Tennessee.
12. Ole Miss
Thank goodness for Andy Kennedy and the defending SEC West champs in basketball.
