Alabama

Nice home win over Kentucky, although I don't know how you score exactly the same number of points against Kentucky and Auburn in the same week.--A Bulldog in Exile

Arkansas

Before 40 minutes of hell comes back, maybe Arkansas should first concentrate on playing for 20 minutes.--The ACC & SEC Blog

Auburn

Will they or won't they? We say they will, but with Bama game now in the rearview mirror, if they do, no one will be there to see it happen.--Roll Bama Roll

Florida

The tempo-free numbers say the Gators are still a bit of a paper tiger. They've got a head start on first in the East. Will they last?--Anchor of Gold

Georgia

Their RPI isn't as high, but I think they definitely belong with Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Vandy.--Rocky Top Talk

Kentucky

Calipari could probably coach Auburn's defense with that kind of language.--A Bulldog in Exile

LSU

Tiger fans beginning to think about baseball.--Leftover Hot Dog

Mississippi St.

This team looks capable of beating only the dregs of the league.--A Sea of Blue

Ole Miss

Shellacked LSwho in Baton Rouge. Maybe they figured something out.--Alabama Basketball Blog

South Carolina

The performance at home against UK suggests they may not belong with the other five in the East...but I bet they'd win the West.--Rocky Top Talk

Tennessee

The refs from Athens did not make it to Hartford.--A Bulldog in Exile

Vanderbilt

Blowing a combined 31 point lead on the road against South Carolina and Tennessee still stings. A lot.--Vanderbilt Sports Line
