1. Does Mississippi St. deserve any consideration for the top five? I'm thinking no. The win over Tennessee was a nice statement from the Bulldogs (I watched part of the game and MSU looked good--physical team with some nice playmakers), but beating Tennessee really isn't a very good measure for anything other than being decent. I have trouble seeing the Bulldogs being better than Georgia or South Carolina. But I'm open to hearing your thoughts on MSU.
2. Is Arkansas back on track? And if so, where should they be ranked? Granted, neither of the two wins came against good teams, but the Hogs looked like they were left for dead a few weeks ago. Who's playing better right now--Arkansas or Ole Miss? Arkansas or Tennessee? Where does Vandy fit in? I'm trying to get a sense of how the mid-tier stacks up.
