SEC Power Poll Draft Ballot: Week Eight

You know the drill--tell me if you disagree with any of these picks.

1. LSU Tigers

2. Alabama Crimson Tide

No surprises with the first two. I guess you could quibble about the ordering, but we'll find out soon, won't we?

3. Arkansas Razorbacks

The Hogs didn't look their best against Ole Miss, but they won on the road, which is sometimes all that matters.

4. Auburn Tigers

I'm not going to penalize them for getting swamped in Baton Rouge. Happens to the best of them.

5. South Carolina Gamecocks

I want to see the Gamecocks win a couple of games with Marcus Lattimore before I move them up to four or higher.

6. Georgia Bulldogs

7. Florida Gators

You could again quibble with ordering here, but we'll learn the truth here soon.

8. Mississippi St. Bulldogs

9. Tennessee Volunteers

I'm having trouble deciding which one of these teams is the better. I'm going with MSU, which can at least say that it's been competitive in its losses.

10. Vanderbilt Commodores

The Commies have an argument for moving up above Tenn. and / or MSU, but I'd like to see them beat an SEC team other than Ole Miss before I give them too much credit.

11. Mississippi Rebels

Tough loss against Arkansas for the Rebs, who finally showed some life this week.

12. Kentucky Wildcats

The 'Cats snapped their losing streak with a win over FCS Jacksonville St. Although that certainly won't impress anyone, they can at least say that the bottom didn't completely fall out on what has been a fairly miserable season thus far.
