SEC Power Poll Ballot: Week Three

1. Alabama Crimson Tide

Could there be any doubt at this point?

2. LSU Tigers

Dominant so far, but untested.

3. Georgia Bulldogs

An uneven-yet-dominant performance against FAU. Defense seems to give up a lot of big plays. Offense looks sharp.

4. South Carolina Gamecocks

Gamecocks need to address QB and secondary concerns if they're going to compete for a conference championship.

5. Florida Gators

Better than last year, but how much? Second-half grit against overmatched opponents doesn't tell us quite enough.

6. Mississippi St. Bulldogs

Struggled a bit in game at Troy. I'm going to ascribe that to the fact that they played AT Troy.

7. Missouri Tigers

Not a bad job beating Arizona St. with their star QB not playing.

8. Tennessee Volunteers

Maybe a little better than last year, but the Gators showed that most of last year's problems still remain: no running game, poor second-half team, etc.

9. Texas A&M Aggies

Dominated SMU over the weekend. Sadly, many of the teams below this point can't say nearly as much for themselves.

10. Vanderbilt Commodores

Surprisingly, there's now a QB controversy in Nashville.

11. Auburn Tigers

At least they didn't actually lose to LA Monroe.

12. Ole Miss Rebels

Showed a little more offensive spark than I expected against Texas. Defense is awful, though.

13. Arkansas Razorbacks

A truly epic fall from grace. I'm not sure I've ever seen a preseason top-10 team play this badly. The Pigs are in big trouble and may be looking at a four- or five-win season when you consider the upcoming schedule.

14. Kentucky Wildcats

Yeah, I'd say Joker is done.
