If you’re not a fan of South Carolina, Alabama or LSU, chances are you’re pretty embarrassed about your team’s performance against ranked opponents the last three years.

The only way to assess your team’s performance against ranked opponents is to check the end of the year rankings and assess the damage. The below chart reflects the final rankings of thelast three years of the USA Today Coaches’ Polls and AP Polls.

While Alabama really dominated the BCS era, especially over the last several years under Nick Saban, South Carolina has dominated ranked opponents to the tune of 12-3 (.800). Only Carolina, Alabama and LSU are over .500 against ranked teams, and only USC and LSU are over .500 against top 10 opponents. Ironically, Steve Spurrier has as many SEC Championship rings to show for it as I do.

On the contrary, three SEC teams haven’t beaten ranked opponents the last three years: Vanderbilt, Kentucky and Mississippi State.

Interestingly, Alabama and Vanderbilt have played the fewest ranked opponents over the time period, while four teams – Auburn, Florida, Ole Miss and Tennessee – have played the most with 17.

Here’s a look – and, please Carolina fans, it’s okay to gloat:
Rank Team Record Win % Top 10 1 South Carolina 12-3 0.800 5-2 2 Alabama 8-4 0.667 4-4 3 LSU 9-5 0.643 6-5 4 Texas A&M 5-10 0.333 1-6 5 Georgia 5-11 0.312 2-9 6 Florida 5-12 0.294 3-7 7 Auburn 4-13 0.235 3-8 8 Missouri 3-12 0.200 0-8 9 Arkansas 2-11 0.154 1-8 10 Ole Miss 2-15 0.118 0-9 11 Tennessee 2-15 0.118 1-12 12 Vanderbilt 0-12 0.000 0-8 13 Kentucky 0-13 0.000 0-8 14 Mississippi State 0-15 0.000 0-9

Overall pretty bad.  I'm surprised only three SEC schools have a winning record.

Not that we're world beaters but definitely two of the worst three years to sample from, at least in our case.

May the bridges I burn light the way.

A Carolina fan wrote the article, I'm pretty sure.
We beat 4 Top10 teams in 2012 and are still 5-12 over the last three seasons because we lost to every ranked team we played in 2 out of those 3.

Not as bad when you consider that most of those losses probably came against other SEC teams. And the others were times when the accs #2 team beat a UGA team that went 8-4 and national champs f$u beat a 4-8 UF team. Or a top tier big 12 team like ok state beating an MSU team that barely got to bowl eligibility.

Bowl records are much more indicative of where the conferences stand because they are often similarly matched opponents.
