1. Kentucky Wildcats 166

2. Mississippi Rebels 135

3. Tennessee Volunteers 127

4. Florida Gators 106

5. Vanderbilt Commodores 105

6. Mississippi St. Bulldogs 103

7. Alabama Crimson Tide 86

8. South Carolina Gamecocks 54

9. LSU Tigers 51

10. Georgia Bulldogs 46

11. Auburn Tigers 24

12. Arkansas Razorbacks 20

See what the voters had to say after the jump.


Methinks Billy Gillispie would be at least 13-2 with this lineup.--A Bulldog in Exile

I came into this year determined not to vote these guys number one until they proved it.  They can stop proving it now.--Rocky Top Talk

Ole Miss

If anyone can challenge UK, it is these guys. Terrico White and Chris Warren are two of the SEC's top six scorers. The Rebs have only lost two games to Big East teams that will make the tourney.--Alligator Army

In my opinion, this team is overrated. A tourney team, sure. A top 15 team? No.--Alabama Basketball Blog


What will happen now after losing the Four Funslingers?  The Vols still have talent, but they are very shallow depth-wise.--A Sea of Blue

With the indefinite suspension of 4 Volunteer players, there is absolutely no way to know how good this team will be.--Vanderbilt Sports Line


Solid team that, if playing up to their abilities, can beat anyone in the league.--Ghost of Chucky

No excuse for this talented and experienced team not to have had a better early season.  They need to pick it up in conference play.--A Sea of Blue


It was a pretty sweet shot, but this team did lose to South Alabama.--And the Valley Shook

Is it me or was the last great Florida team when Anthony Grant was there?--Alabama Basketball Blog

Mississippi State

Don't have many quality wins thus far and not sure what they will do when SEC play begins.  I see them hurting as the season goes on.--Leftover Hot Dog

Varnado is close to breaking Shaq's SEC career blocks record if he hasn't already.  Second-to-last attendance is pathetic, btw.--And the Valley Shook


The Tide have to be one of the conference's biggest surprises and big fan of Anthony Grant; he will have them making noise in the West.--Leftover Hot Dog

No one's talking about the Tide, but they've got solid wins against a tough slate.--Ghost of Chucky

South Carolina

Interested to see how well this team responds in-conference, but unfortunate start.--Rocky Top Talk

Yeah. Losing your second and third leading scorers to season-ending knee injuries... sounds familiar.--Red Cup Rebellion


A tough non-conference schedule will pay dividends in the SEC West race.  They aren't the best shooting team in the state, but they will make you earn every point.--A Bulldog in Exile

This team doesn't shoot well from anywhere, but top to bottom, this is the youngest team in the league.--A Sea of Blue


Beating Georgia Tech will do a lot for your confidence. Unfortunately, they get Kentucky on Saturday.--Alligator Army

Too bad Paul Hewitt doesn't coach more teams on their schedule.--A Bulldog in Exile


Is currently leading the SoCon...--A Bulldog in Exile

Played something named West Georgia in their last game and still allowed 72 points. West Georgia sounds like a prison team.--Alligator Army


The return of Fortson provides some hope after an often brutal pre-conference season. Hope for a not-terrible conference record, that is. --Arkansas Expats

Arkansas' struggles on the court are somehow the fault of Houston Nutt. You know it's true.--Red Cup Rebellion
