The Gators played the now-traditional part of an SEC champion by winning the BCS Title.
Not exactly what Saban and friends had hoped for in the Sugar Bowl, but still the conference's second-best team.
3. Ole Miss
What a great job by Houston Nutt this season. Next year looks bright, too.
Nice finish to a disappointing season by the Dawgs. They have some holes to fill next year, though.
Les Miles certainly has a penchant for prepping his teams for the bowls. Can they improve next year with Jordan Jefferson under center?
Vandy won the Music City Bowl the same way they've won all season, with good scoring defense and opportune turnovers. Congrats to the Dores on winning only their second bowl game.
7. South Carolina
Another late season slide again has Steve Spurrier on the outside of the top half of the conference.
Wildcats got a strange win in the Liberty Bowl and finish with a decent record, but they lack a signature victory.
Should finish with a better record next year with a lot of returning talent and Ryan Mallett as QB.
Who knows what the future holds with unproven Lane Kiffin and his high-priced staff taking over in Knoxville.
The Chizik hire was a strange one, but to his credit Chizik has hired a nice staff. Maybe things won't be as bad as we think they will be.
12. Mississippi State
Talented former Florida assistant Dan Mullen takes over in Starkville, but will he be good enough to win with such a dearth of offensive talent?
