SEC Power Rankings - 11/18/12




1. Georgia - the Dawgs are winners of five straight games dating back to October and will look to make it six with a win over rival Georgia Tech on Saturday. The Dawgs will do so knowing that taking care of business there will have them playing a defacto National Championship semi-final against (in all likelihood) Alabama in two weeks.

2. Alabama - The Tide still need one more win to lock up their berth in Atlanta. They'll go against Auburn in the annual Iron Bowl match-up. No reason to think the Tigers will be an upset candidate here, AU looks to be mailing it in the rest of the way. Barring the unimaginable, Alabama will win the West and face Georgia for the SEC championship, and a ticket to the BCS National Championship game.

3. Florida - finally beat a cupcake convincingly. At least, without needing a last second punt return anyway. The Gators have stumbled their way through November undefeated, and while not looking pretty, are the highest-ranked SEC team that won't be in the title game, so they stand the best chance of making a BCS bowl game outside of Bama and Georgia. That is, if they can muster a win against FSU this weekend.

4. LSU - was challenged at home by an Ole Miss team that continues to impress despite and unimpressive record, and came out victorious. LSU hasn't won many games convincingly this year since early September, but they're done enough to stay in the top 10.

5. Texas A&M - Playing for Johnny Manziel's heisman campaign at this point. It's been a heck of a first season for the Aggies in the big bad SEC, and they'll wrap it up with a game against the other conference newcomer, Missouri, which hasn't had a great first season.

6. South Carolina - Very disconcerting showing against Wofford. Will need much, much more against Clemson to keep the streak over their in-state rivals alive.

7. Mississippi State - Finally ended the 3-game losing streak with an impressive victory over Arkansas. The Bullydogs can end the season on a high note with a victory over Ole Miss.

8. Vanderbilt - The Dores have put together a great little season. Bowl eligible again and 5-3 in conference play, their only losses coming to the three Eastern big dogs. The Dores put a whipping on in-state rival Tennessee to really cap it off.

9. Ole Miss - Same story for the Rebels, good, just not enough. Disappointing loss at LSU that it looked like the Rebs should have won. Next year should be interesting to watch for this team though.

10. Missouri - You want to talk about blowing it? How about giving up three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to a Big East squad?

11. Arkansas - Not much more to say about this team

12. Tennessee - Ugly, ugly, ugly. Not the way Derek Dooley wanted to end his career at UT.

13. Auburn - Will they follow suit with the other schools in the bottom four and fire the HC?

14. Kentucky - ... at least basketball season is here

Because Georgia beat Georgia Southern 45-14,and Alabama only beat Western Carolina 49-0.

Duh. Are you a moron.
Shit dude. Just rank Bama -3 and rank UGA 15. It's the only way to please the masses.
I must not understand, prolly cuz I'm an idiot, or a moron, or stupid as shit or a dumbass............I'm emotionally preparing for what the thread starter is gonna call me while he justifies some bullshit lmao

It'd just be nice to read something written by a Georgia fan that's completely unbiased, which I don't think has been done since 1903

He is a Georgia fan and its his thread I suppose would be the reason.
Why the hell does it matter?  UGA and Bama are clearly 1-2 right now. We both played cupcakes and crushed them. It's not blasphemy to rank the Gumps lower than 1 in something.

You have a point, though aTm beat Bama, and would run circles around UGA - yet they sit at, what, #5?

Power Rankings be damned.

Lets not get into the whole trying to figure out who would beat who based on opponents that we haven't or have played.

Its adds up to ZERO

You're right, and that's not what I'm trying to do. I'm just stating that aTm is the hottest team in the country right now and would blow UGA out of the water.

It's just too bad we don't get the opportunity to witness it.
You could have put Georgia and Bama as 1A and 1B and people would still shit a chicken over it. Who cares. It shall all sort itself out.
It's not like the SECTalk Power Rankings have any influence on the real polls......yet

God help us if it ever does.
UF is in a great spot right now IMO. They earned it in their play earlier in the season too but if they don't kick it back up they will likely end up getting stomped in their bowl game or if they do make it to play against Bama in Miami

Yes, it is too bad.

In the last 5 games Georgia has outscored their opponents 166 - 55.

In the last 5 games Texas A&M has outscored their opponents 196 - 110.

At the risk of being labeled a homer, I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest that Georgia is playing pretty well at the moment also.

In no way should this statement be misconstrued as an implication that Georgia is anywhere near as good as Alabama, USCe, LSU or Florida. I'm just throwing it out there for the sake of discussion.



Now as to Boots obvious bias in assigning team power rankings, I feel confident in saying that there is a nigger somewhere in the woodpile. Only a nigger would do something as stupid as placing Georgia ahead of Alabama in anything outside of choking, of course.

We'll be able to win our bowl game with ease.
Remeber, we will end up in the Capital One or Outback bowl against a shittier-than-usual B1G team.

F$U will probably ream us, but if we miraculously pull out the W, all we'd need is for Notre Dame to drop their game to USC and we would be in the National Championship.
Voters would have to drop us WAY low to keep us out.

I'll freak the feck out if we go 11-2.
Who gives a Posted Image. Georgia vs Alabama for a BCS birth. Aka a chance at all the marbles. Even if Georgia's chances of winning are 10%, it's higher than any other team in the SEC aside from Bama...hate on Georgia all you want people. Enjoy watching and not participating in the game.
Also, I assume you didn't watch our game Hobby.
There was absolutely nothing "convincing" about it.

We have looked like absolute garbage for the easiest month of our schedule.

The above two statements contradict each other in a way. In my statement i was assuming you guys beat FSU and go to a BCS bowl. UF would likely win a bowl game outside of that yea
