We’re starting to get more teams playing each other in conference. With that, comes a slightly clearer picture of what the SEC looks like. And boy, have things gotten interesting quickly.
For now, here is how I am putting the SEC from top to bottom.
#1 Alabama Crimson Tide (Last Week: 1)
They won, but looked somewhat vulnerable in their 41-23 win over Colorado State.
#2 Mississippi St. Bulldogs (Last Week: #5)
Before you call me a homer, which team has looked better than the Bulldogs? Mississippi State’s 37-7 dismantling of LSU has been the most impressive win of any team in the SEC so far in the young 2017 season.
#3 Georgia Bulldogs (Last Week: #4)
Georgia and Mississippi State is the must see game of the first 4 weeks. Winner gets the title of best chance to dethrone Bama (for now anyways).
#4 Kentucky Wildcats (Last Week: #9)
I can’t believe I’m ranking Kentucky this high. The only other logical option is who I have at 5, and that team is even more shocking. They are...
#5 Vanderbilt Commodores (Last Week: #7)
So Vanderbilt is looking really good right now. That defense is legit. But we’ll find out how legit this week when they take on the Crimson Tide.
#6 South Carolina Gamecocks (Last Week: #3)
South Carolina losing to a Kentucky team that had looked very mediocre in their first two games is such a Will Muschamp thing to do.
#7 LSU Tigers (Last Week: #2)
An Ed Oregon coached team, no matter how much talent they have on their roster, is still an Ed Orgeron coached team.
#8 Auburn Tigers (Last Week: #8)
Auburn has issues. The offense is not what many thought it would be with Stidham at quarterback. And his offensive line can’t protect him. It’s not pretty on the plains right now.
#9 Florida Gators (Last Week: #10)
Florida might be the least impressive team in the conference, but they did get a win over a team in the conference.
#10 Tennessee Volunteers (Last Week: #6)
Will Butch Jones be the first SEC coach fired? If you look at the roster, and you try to figure out what is wrong with this team, it all leads back to Butch Jones.
#11 Arkansas Razorbacks (Last Week: #12)
Arkansas gets bumped up simply because they didn’t play.
#12 Texas A&M Aggies (Last Week: #14)
Texas A&M was down 21-14 to ULL at the half, but went on to win 45-21. It wasn’t the most impressive performance, but the last two teams looked so bad, A&M had to be bumped up.
#13 Ole Miss Rebels (Last Week: #11)
Ole Miss looked inept both offensively and defensively against Cal. Yes, they lost their best playmaker in AJ Brown, but it shouldn’t be that big of a drop off when one guy who is not your quarterback goes down.
#14 Missouri Tigers (Last Week: #13)
Missouri won the East Division two straight years not too long ago. Now, they’re getting waxed by Purdue. Life comes at you fast
