Here we are at week 2 of the college football season, and several SEC teams either lost or performed in less-than-impressive ways this past weekend. So lets get right to my ballot:
|1||Alabama||1-0||52.51||35-10||25||1||at Texas A&M;||Bye week.|
|2||Texas A&M;||2-0||60.37||117-59||29||6||Alabama||Okay, so TAMU allows an FCS team to score 28 on them?|
|3||LSU||2-0||50.63||93-44||24.5||8||Kent State||56-17 is convincing enough to me.|
|4||Georgia||1-0||1-1||57.96||76-68||4||9,10||Sep 21, North Texas||The Dawgs kept Jadeveon Clowney at bay.|
|5||South Carolina||0-1||1-1||61.12||57-51||3||13,14||Vanderbilt||Is the Gamecock secondary now considered suspect?|
|6||Florida||1-1||61.43||40-27||6.5||18,20||Sep 21, Tennessee||1-for the red zone is a recipe for disaster.|
|7||Mississippi||1-0||2-0||60.79||70-48||11||25||at Texas||Southeastern Missouri St. gets 17 first downs against the Ole Miss defense? Really?|
|8||Arkansas||2-0||52.71||65-35||15||33||Southern Mississippi||Even we at Kentucky are not impressed.|
|9||Tennessee||2-0||57.8||97-20||38.5||39,43||at Oregon||Five takeaways will win you almost every game.|
|10||Mississippi State||1-1||77.39||54-28||13||at Auburn||So the Bulldogs can score. Who'da thunk it after last week.|
|11||Auburn||2-0||55.35||69-33||18||Mississippi State||Okay, Auburn, you are definitely better than last year.|
|12||Missouri||2-0||47.35||96-37||29.5||Sep 21, at Indiana||Turnovers thwarted Toledo's upset bid. Mizzou is fortunate to get this one.|
|13||Vanderbilt||0-1||1-1||42.45||73-42||15.5||at South Carolina||Ate a cupcake, but they didn't allow them to score 28. Just sayin'.|
|14||Kentucky||1-1||44.03||67-42||12.5||Louisville||Significantly improved in every area but penalties and special teams.|
I'm not really sure, at this point, if Texas A&M;'s defense is good enough to challenge for the West. Yes, Johnny Football is still awesome, but you have to stop somebody.
We will find out a lot about both TAMU and Alabama this weekend.
Arkansas was significantly less impressive than last week.
Is Mizzou really an SEC team, or a Big 12 imposter?
Can Kentucky score enough points to win an SEC game with their weakness on defense?
LSU just might be deserving of the top spot, but I don't think we've seen enough to dethrone Alabama yet.
Is Tennessee that good, or did Western just lay an egg?
What do you think?
