SEC Power Rankings: Muppets.gif Edition

This week we turn to the finest entertainers Earth has ever known to countdown the SEC.

NCAA Football: Texas A&M at South Carolina Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

To quote Homer Simpson:

So that brings us to today’s rankings. Break out the felt and feelings. It was a weird weekend in the SEC and we’re going to countdown the damage done using Jim Henson’s greatest creations.

A quick note here before we begin. The Sesame Street gang are not part of the Muppets. The Fraggles are not part of the Muppets. The Muppets are a very specific group of characters. I own multiple coffee table books about them.

Okay, let’s get to it!

1. ALABAMA (7-0)

After this weekend, this conference is more “Bama and everyone else” than ever.

2. LSU (6-1)

VIDEO: Coach O speaks about his team’s win over UGA and preparation for Mississippi State’s upcoming visit to Baton Rouge.

3. FLORIDA (6-1)

Maybe the rest of America will just look at the final score and not dig deeper and see just how many of Florida’s flaws Vandy exposed.

4. GEORGIA (6-1)

Let’s take a live look at Jake Fromm after Saturday’s game.

5. TEXAS A&M (5-2)

How would you describe A&M through most of Saturday’s game?

6. KENTUCKY (5-1)

So now that Georgia has a loss, Big Blue Nation has quickly gone from licking its wounds back to pounding its chests. Plus they get two teams that are winless in the SEC before UGA comes to town.


After beating Auburn, the Bulldogs got in a needed bye week before taking a trip to Baton Rouge this week.

8. TENNESSEE (3-3)

Jeremy Pruitt coached Tennessee to a win over a top 25 opponent.

No, I’m serious.

9. OLE MISS (5-2)

I have a feeling Ole Miss fans aren’t really interested in what the team’s record is this season.


With all of the talent and experience that returned to our offense, it surely seems like the Cocks should be better than 3-3 and in the middle of the East right now. It almost makes you wonder when we are going to get out of neutral and move above 4th place.

11. AUBURN (4-3)

Auburn needs 2 more wins to make a bowl, and if they keep playing the way they have played the last 4 weeks, I am not positive there are 2 wins left on this schedule.

12. MIZZOU (3-3)

We all assumed that given Bama’s injuries and a defense that has been below typical Saban standards that Mizzou would put up points, right? I thought scoring was the only thing the Tigers do well.

13. VANDERBILT (3-4)

Remember when James Franklin was there and Vandy was able to close out games where they had huge leads on teams like Florida?

14. ARKANSAS (1-6)

No comment necessary.
