See what the voters had to say after the jump.

Alabama

Soft inside, halfcourt O is a mess... this team is a trainwreck.--Alabama Basketball Blog

Anthony Grant's team is having consistency problems.  Got talent yet not meshing.--Leftover Hot Dog

Arkansas

There are undoubtedly better players than Courtney Fortson in the SEC. But are there any that are more valuable?--Arkansas Expats

There's no way this team makes it in, right?  They'd almost have to win out, wouldn't they?--Rocky Top Talk

Auburn

Coach Jeff Lebo better pull out the resume and get it updated.--Leftover Hot Dog

All we asked you to do was beat Arkansas. Thanks for nothing, Auburn. Enjoy your new stadium that will be tragically empty next year.--Red Cup Rebellion

Florida

Florida is looking more and more like a tourney team. RPI is up, turnovers are down. However, they are still relying on gotta call'em shots to win games too much.--A Bulldog in Exile

A first-rate, second-rate, program at present, but dangerous on any night they play.--VolNation Blog

Georgia

Blasting Vandy at home... this team is no gimme at home or on the road.--Alabama Basketball Blog

Wins like Saturday's over Vanderbilt will ensure Mark Fox gets the time he needs to build this into a contender in the SEC.--ACC & SEC Blog

Kentucky

Kentucky is the only constant in every poll. I guess that's what happens when you're 22-1...and your coach is Teflon.--Red Cup Rebellion

In a great position to win the SEC title with 3 freshmen starters.--Roll Bama Roll

LSU

First 0-16 SEC team of the modern era?--Roll Bama Roll

Rapidly becoming the "Ying" to the Vanderbilt football program's "Yang."--VolNation Blog

Mississippi State

While I'm probably placing a little too much weight on losses to Vanderbilt and Florida, Mississippi State really hurt themselves this week.--Red Cup Rebellion

To me this team screams "underachieve."--Leftover Hot Dog

Ole Miss

Did the smart thing and let Bama get a double-digit lead on them.--Roll Bama Roll

Gotta give them credit, they are consistently scoring 75 ppg, win or lose.  Now, if Andy Kennedy could only score that much at home....--A Bulldog in Exile

South Carolina

Beatdown at UTK has got to hurt. Planning their almost annual trip to the NIT.--Alabama Basketball Blog

The giant killers were absolutely devastated by Tennessee; In this case, Goliath won.--Red Cup Rebellion

Tennessee

The Vols are close on the heels of Vanderbilt and Kentucky in a tight race at the top of the SEC-East.--VolNation Blog

How do you scrape by LSU, but blow out South Carolina? Better figure it out, because you won't play in Knoxville in the NCAA tourney.--A Bulldog in Exile

Vanderbilt

Vandy is ok being second best in the SEC East because they never get to say that in football.--Leftover Hot Dog

No shame in losing to Georgia on the road.  The Bulldogs were bound to break through sooner or later.--ACC & SEC Blog
