SEC Power Poll – Week 11
This week’s SaveTheShield.com SEC Power Poll Entry is a true collaborative effort. STS’s Philip took the first crack and I filled in some of the gaps. Look for the final results when Team Speed Kills releases them on Wednesday morning.
We’ve been thinking that, based on the clinical ruthlessness of his teams, Nick Saban should be an executioner at the state prison. But you know, with all the joy that he brings the majority of Alabamans, he can probably settle for consistently pulling the plug on UT and Auburn fans’ collective hopes.
After breaking in with a one week engagement of “Impressive,” the Gators have returned to their regularly scheduled program, “Merely Effective.” Good enough.
Putting Louisiana Tech between Bama and Ole Miss screams sneak up… but c’mon. You’re better than that. Weak wins against Washington, Vandy, and now LT make me wonder if LSU isn’t further back toward the pack.
The Dawgs are 3-1 versus the muddled middle. If you forgive the whuppings at the hands of Urban and Boy Blunder, it’s not too bad a resume.
READ ON FOR THE REST OF THIS WEEK’S BALLOT
5. Ole Miss
Classic Houston Nutt: wait until the team has clinched a season of profound disappointment, then show up with the SEC’s answer to the ’07 Patriots.
6. South Carolina
A strong showing against Florida may have fallen short, but Spurrier may need a similar effort against Clemson to stay off the (really) hot seat.
Boy Blunder turns disciplinarian, but does it really count to kick someone off if they’re headed for jail anyway?
(gratuitous shot of Layla, thank you very much)
Ask your athletic director if Chizik might be right for you. Chizik may cause heartburn, blood pressure rising, euphoria, heartbreak, confusion and restless leg syndrome. Please consult your doctor before your team hires Chizik.
Arkansas’ offense has run over more defenses than any other SEC team. Which begs the question: How did Alabama ever hold them to 7 points?
10. Miss State
An upset in the last two wouldn’t shock me, or probably anyone else. Though the domination by Bama was stark, even by Saban standards.
Kentucky had four different passers in the first half, and only RB Derrick Locke completed a throw. But alas, when you get to play Vanderbilt this year, it just doesn’t matter.
We guarantee the rest of the SEC that every penny of our ESPN money will be spent on pain relievers for our fans. Now stop asking for the money back. We gave you your bowl last year.
