SEC Rankings – Election Week
Posted by Ryne E. Hancock on November 7, 2008
After electing our first African-American president in Barack Obama and surviving an assassination attempt, I’m here once again to present to you the SEC Power Rankings for the week of November 2nd.
1. Alabama (Don’t expect these guys to fall off the top anytime soon. Of course, there’s a chance that LSU could beat the Tide in Baton Rouge as part of Nick Saban’s return to Death Valley.)
2. Florida (Looks to be a clear road for the Gators in quest for the SEC East crown. But Vanderbilt always seems to play the Gators close and could, if the football gods allow it, beat the Gators for the first time since 1988.)
3. South Carolina (Let it be shown that the Gamecocks got Fulmer fired, whether or not you agree with the way it was done.)
4. Kentucky (Three straight bowl games, something that hasn’t happened in a long time, has the folks in Lexington beaming with glee.)
5. LSU (Your former coach is coming, men. How will you respond?)
6. Georgia (Blowout loss hurt Dawgs’ chances at SEC East crown.)
7. Ole Miss (Nutt is doing a great job turning the fortunes of the Rebel football program around.)
8. Vanderbilt (Bye week was needed for ‘Dores.)
9. Auburn (Tigers can still reach .500 in the SEC West.)
10. Arkansas (They deserved to be ranked higher than Tennessee.)
11. Tennessee (Remaining games are for pride, not for too much of anything else.)
12. Missississippi State (Basketball’s looking good these days in Starkville.)
My time’s up. You’ve been a great audience.
