SEC Power Poll – Week 11

November 17th, 2009 Comments off

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.

1. Alabama

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.

2. Florida

After breaking in with a one week engagement of “Impressive,” the Gators have returned to their regularly scheduled program, “Merely Effective.” Good enough.

3. LSU

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.

4. Georgia

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.

TeamSpeed Kills Power Poll

November 11th, 2009 Comments off

So this week’s TSK power poll is up. Me and Phil from SavetheShield.com had two entries make it in (for Georgia and Vanderbilt) from our ballot.

Linked is the full poll result.

My favorite entries:

ALABAMA

Another week, another tough game. This week a new hero rose up to save Alabama’s season. This weeks game ball goes to SEC Replay official Gerald Hodges!–Orange and Blue Hue

LSU

I didn’t much care who won that game last week, but I really, really wish they’d called it an interception just so we’d have all been able to go one d— week talking about actual football.–War Blog Eagle

TENNESSEE

Wow, Jonathan Crompton‘s still getting people fired. At least it’s someone else’s coaches this year.–War Blog Eagle

GEORGIA

I never thought I would say ‘Georgia defense’ and ‘shutout’ in the same sentence for 2009.–The ACC & SEC Blog

SOUTH CACKALACKY

The Gamecocks have lost 3 of their last four and are on the verge of collapse. That can mean only one thing . . . THANKSGIVING IS ALMOST HERE!!!–Orange and Blue Hue

MISSISSIPPI STATE

It’s unfortunate that the NCAA requires a team to win six games to qualify for postseason play, because I’d like to see a bowl game pitting Mississippi State against Connecticut to settle the question of which is the best 4-5 team in America.–Dawg Sports

SEC Power Poll – Week 10

November 9th, 2009 Comments off

Here’s this week’s submission I penned for SaveTheShield.com’s entry into the TeamSpeedKills.com SEC Power Poll. You’ll note that I’m officially resubmitting my Tennessee and Vandy one’s from last week’s Power Poll, as apparently it didn’t get submitted in time for use by TeamSpeedKills… and, well, they are still applicable.

1. Alabama

Try as we might, we can’t really get too worked up about the blown interception call because Alabama was the better team. Huzzah LSU, but you’re clearly third.

2. Florida

Chas Henry allowed a punt return (a 6 yarder) for the first time since the first play of the 4th quarter of the Orange Bowl last year. All others were downed or fair caught. Tebow may be the best QB in the country. Henry is the best punter.

3. LSU

It kind of sucks knowing you’re the fourth best team in the country and you’re not going to go to the BCS because you happen to play with two of the three teams ahead of you.

4. Tennessee

It turns out that the way to coach up a mediocre quarterback is death threats. Many, many death threats. Way to go, Vol fans. You did your part. Better get started on JP Prince or his mid-range jumper may never come around.

Special Add On. Did anyone really think that Jonathan Crompton would account for more touchdowns than Eric Berry this year? Raise your hand. No really, I’m serious.

SEC Power Poll, Week 9

November 3rd, 2009 Comments off

Here’s this week’s submission I penned for SaveTheShield.com‘s entry into the TeamSpeedKills.com SEC Power Poll.

1. Alabama

The lack of any eye gouging, suplexes and use of shivs during the off week ensured that they would remain on top, notwithstanding Florida’s dominating performance. Yes, I also can’t believe I just said Alabama Football was morally superior to someone else.

2. Florida

Pardon me, Mr. Lamb of God, remind me again where in the bible it says that it’s OK to gouge out an opponents eye if they do it to you. Oh, “eye for an eye,” Leviticus 24:19-21. Right, OK. Carry on.

3. LSU

LSU must be getting pumped for the last SEC game to mean something before Atlanta. The real question is whether or not LSU can get into the BCS championship if they win out. Methinks yes.

4. Tennessee

It turns out that the way to coach up a mediocre quarterback is death threats. Many, many death threat. Way to go, Vol fans. You did your part. Better get started on JP Prince or his mid-range jumper may never come around.

SEC Power Poll, Week 8

October 27th, 2009 Comments off

Here’s this week’s SEC Power Poll Ballot from Save The Shield for Team Speed Kills. Here’s this week’s (SEC Week 8 Power Poll final results are here @ Team Speed Kills):

1. Alabama
Can we all take a moment to thank Terrence Cody. If he doesn’t block that kick we A) have to put up with UT fans at a level of unsufferability last seen when Peyton was conducting Rocky Top and B) don’t get the undefeated SEC title matchup the refs have worked so hard for.

2. Florida
Can you not say Shibboleth? These scant margins are mere tests for Harris Poll voters, as merely a mustard seed of faith will be sufficient to move the chains enough to beat Alabama and Texas (Urban 17:20).
