SEC Power Poll Ballot: Week Two

1. Alabama Crimson Tide

The win over Michigan lost a little luster after the Wolverines struggled against Air Force, but the Tide still get the nod for now.

2. LSU Tigers

Impressive win over Washington. Dominant running game, passing game looks improved. Can't wait to see them play Alabama.

3. Georgia Bulldogs

Impressive win for the Dawgs brings them to the third spot. Jarvis Jones is one of the early contenders for most impressive defensive player in the country.

4. South Carolina Gamecocks

Perhaps the thing getting lost in South Carolina's offensive explosion against ECU is the emergence of its wide-receiver corps. True, it was against a bad secondary, but Carolina had 11 guys with receptions and got particularly strong performances from Damiere Byrd, Bruce Ellington, and Rory Anderson. D.L. Moore also made some plays, and DeAngelo Smith finally did something in a real game. Shaq Roland's breakout game is coming soon.

5. Tennessee Volunteers

The Vols have a chance to prime themselves for their best season in the last few years if they can beat Florida this weekend. Potent offense, but I can't get a read on whether their defense is any good or not.

6. Florida Gators

The Gators defense put on a clinic in the second half against TAMU, but the offense still isn't scaring anyone.

7. Mississippi St. Bulldogs

The Bulldogs got their first win over Auburn in several years, but considering how bad Auburn looks right now, it might not mean much.

8. Missouri Tigers

Impressive first three quarters, but you have to finish in the SEC, Tigers.

9. Arkansas Razorbacks

Losing Tyler Wilson hurt, but there's no excusing the poor pass protection and the porous defense. This team may be in trouble.

10. Texas A&M Aggies

Again, you have to finish in the SEC.

11. Vanderbilt Commodores

Vandy had many chances to put away Northwestern, but a bevy of mistakes made for a surprise loss to the Wildcats.

12. Auburn Tigers

No QB, no wins. This season could get ugly on the Plains.

13. Ole Miss Rebels

I don't really know anything about this team, but I doubt they're any good.

14. Kentucky Wildcats

Thank goodness for Kent St.
