SEC Power Rankings 11/24/13




It is finally here - RIVALRY WEEK! The last week of the season. For some, it is a chance to bolster an already great year. For a few others, this week offers a chance to salvage a season or end the misery and start getting ready for 2014.

But one this is true for everybody, after this weekend, there are no more tomorrow's in the regular season...

1. Alabama  Iron Bowl week. Winner owns the top spot in the conference. Nothing else to be said really...

2. Auburn  
Iron Bowl week. Winner owns the top spot in the conference. Nothing else to be said really...

2. Missouri  Beat Texas A&M and play somebody from Alabama for the right to go to the Sugar Bowl. Lose, and go to the Capital One Bowl. Either way, it has been a hell of a ride for one of the "we3aker" teams in the conference. Smart money has the Tigers in Atlanta.

4. South Carolina  Beat Clemson and it is a toss up whether or not the Gamecocks get a BCS bowl. There is still a lot up the air insofar as where does everybody go bowling, but winning against the 'Tators is what SC needs to do for any hope at a special post-season. A trip to atlanta for the Conference Championship is still possible, but Clemson is job one.

5. Louisiana State  That was a very impressive win over aTm on Saturday. This season was not what most on the bayou were hoping for, but has still been pretty damned good.

6. Texas A&M  The Aggies probably have to beat Mizzou to even get a Cotton Bowl bid at this point. I doubt that it will happen. This year has to be labeled as a disappointment, from national and conference contendor with a Heisman QB to a probable Chick Fil a or Gator bowl bid? Ouch.

7. Georgia  Speaking of "ouch"; what a tough break for the Dawgs and QB Aaron Murray. Without the season ending injury, I would be placing UGA over aTm even with 1 more loss. As things stand, tied for 7th seems about right.

7. Vanderbilt   Yes, I am aware that the Commodores beat UGA in Nashville earlier this season. I STILL think that UGA is probably the better team, but am calling it a toss-up with UGA suffering another brutal injury. This past weekend's victory had to have guaranteed the 'Dores a better bowl this year. Plus, Vandy SHOULD beat Wake to finish the season at 8-4.

9. Mississippi The Rebels re back in the wrong half of the conference power rankings poll and will PROBABLY stay there even if they win the Egg Bowl. Why? Because it looks like a stretch for anyone above them to lose. Mississippi really did not look like they were ever in any danger of beating the Tigers on Saturday. they just didn't. Where they end the season will have everything to do with how the Egg Bowl plays out AND how the Mizzou vs aTm game goes. If will be interesting to see how it plays out.

10. Mississippi State  The Bulldogs put together a great game and got a nice win this past weekend. Don't look now, but if the Dogs win the Egg Bowl they will go bowling AND money will be raised to construct a statue of CDM!! OK - maybe no statues will be built, but some goodwill and patience from a restless fanbase will likely be won with a victory on Saturday...

11. Tennessee  The Vols are a better 4-7 team that the Gators. It is kind of amazing since they only have one conference win and actually lost to Florida, but it is true. As bad as this Tennessee team is, I don't believe they would lose to ANY FCS team right now. I also believe they will end the year with a better record.

12. Arkansas  The Razorbacks came SO CLOSE to beating MS State. It has been a long year in Fayetteville and next year does not look to get any easier.

13. Florida  YES - the Bowl eligibility pipe dream came crashing down on Saturday. How does the flagship university for the state of Florida LOSE to a BAD FCS team? There really aren't words.

13. Kentucky  The Wildcats are still the most woeful SEC team in the conference. But we will call it a tie, at least for this week. Yes, Kentucky lost to Western Kentucky, but I am not so sure that they would get beat by Georgia Southern...

bottom half is laughable.
Looks pretty good, but I still think UF is better than Ark.

Plus I would once again put Vandy over UGA. They won head to head, have the same record, beat UF a lot worse than UGA did, and didn't need OT to take care of UT....and all of that before UGA lost one of the best QBs to ever play in the SEC.
Oh yeah...and I'd also put SC and Mizzou over Auburn

I'd say bottom 3rd. Our middling Mississippi teams have only lost to top 20 ranked teams, more or less top 10 ranked for the most part. In any other conference Ole Miss would probably be a 9 or 10 win team and Miss. St. would probably be bowl eligible.

it's a toss-up
at the beginning of the season if you had told uga fans "you'll probably end up somewhere around vandy"

they would have gone full nuclear.

my favorite time of year is when uga bitches get brought back down to earth.

next year tho...next year they will dominate.

Don't insult Vandy like that.
I would have Vandy ahead of UGA with the head to head win. Wow Vandy 6th in the SEC Anchor down!!

Auburn's signature win was beating #21 A&M by 4 points...and they got destroyed by #17 LSU.

UGA above AnM and Vandy:

- UGA has 2 BIG wins and finished ahead of Vandy in the SEC
- ANM has 0 BIG wins and may have the worst D in SEC history
- Vandy has 0 BIG wins and finished behind UGA in the SEC

Terrible work this week @dcbl.  -10/10
Sigh, why couldn't have Florida imploded when we played them?
why couldnt georgia take the fight out of tennessee before we played them?
why couldn't we have played fla or ky? why couldn't we have had a few home games before oct? why couldn't we have started a qb that didn't have the flu? Posted Image all that!!! play football!!!
