    1. Alabama (8-0)
    : Bye week for Bama which was much needed before the week against LSU. Remains on top until proven otherwise.

    2. Georgia (8-0): Huge win this past week against their Achilles heel, Florida. Having the McElwain get let go shortly afterwards probably added to joys this weekend in Athens.

    3. Auburn (6-2): Two loses this year to ranked teams, and both on the road. Had the week off and next head to College Station to play the Aggies.

    4. LSU (6-2): Orgeron has turned this team around since their loss to Troy. Wins against Florida, Auburn, and Ole Miss have them going into next week against Bama with momentum, and some fire as they are an early 21 point underdog against the Tide.

    5. Mississippi State (6-2): Mullens is at it again in Starkville. Blowing the doors off of Kentucky and A&M have really impressed me as they move up in the rankings. They welcome UMASS next week before the Tide come to town.

    6. Texas A&M (5-3): The Aggies move down a spot this week, after getting turn apart by Mississippi State. I thought Sumlin was turning the Aggies in an upward direction, however their close wins against Florida and Arkansas don't look as impressive now.

    7. South Carolina (6-2): Muschamp has done a hell of a job this year for the Gamecocks. The win this weekend against Vandy means they they are bowling. However, they now have to travel to Athens to take on one of the best looking teams in the country. Good Luck, Will.

    8. Kentucky (6-2): Outside of the beating they took in Starkville, Kentucky is 1 play away from being 7-1. This is a big year for Stoops who will look to go 8-2 as his next two games are against Ole Miss and Vandy.

    9. Vanderbilt (3-5): A close game against South Carolina and Florida are the highlights so far of this SEC campaign. Before their SEC play, they were beating a ranked team, and making ill-advised promises to Alabama. Since then, they have gotten spanked over and over.

    10. Florida (3-4): This has been a disaster for Florida, starting with the suspensions to start the year, to their first game against Michigan which saw zero progress in an already inept offense, to firing their coach after getting embarrassed by Georgia. They now are on a 3 game skid and will look for some kind of life when they travel to Missouri this weekend.

    11. Arkansas (3-5):
    In the craziest SEC game of the weekend, Bielema's Hogs came back and secured a win in Oxford against the talent depleted Ole Miss rebels. Arkansas will likely continue winning as they play host to Coastal Carolina next week, but then will be really tested as they head down to Baton Rouge.

    12. Ole Miss (3-5)
    : This season cannot end fast enough for the Rebels. This season might be the worst ever with the Freeze scandal, Nutt lawsuit, and the self-imposed post season ban while NCAA is crawling all around campus. They looked soulless walking off the field this past weekend, and it'll be interesting to see what is left as they play Kentucky this week.

    13. Tennessee (3-5)
    : Butch is done, but why are UT finishing the season with him? It's gone bad, to worse for Rocky Top after throwing a last ditch Hail Mary, catching it, and falling short of the end zone.....against Kentucky. I don't understand them not ditching Butch now to give some kind of spark to this team as they attempt to become bowl eligible.

    14. Missouri (3-5) -
    Beating the shit out of UCONN does not get you elevated in the Power Rankings, which is was Mizzou did this past weekend. 3 wins coming against Missouri State, Idaho, and UCONN is a disgrace. With games remaining against Florida, UT, Vandy, and Arkansas, the Tigers are on pace to loss every game they play against a team in the SEC.
