No game again this week for Carolina. It doesn’t mean they will be a non-factor in our power rankings. It just means there was no new data to consider.
I received a number of emails last week from people that couldn’t believe I put Tennessee above the Cocks. Some couldn’t believe I put Ole Miss above the Cocks. To that I say get a life.
These rankings mean next to nothing. There is little or no emotion wrapped up in them. Half the time I just put Alabama at the top, Arkansas at the bottom, and write down every other team in the order I remember they exist. Who better to represent that level of not caring and doing the bare minimum a job requires than Ron Swanson?
“But Demetri,” you say. “Didn’t Ron Swanson value hard work and attention to detail?”
If we’re talking about turning a fallen tree trunk into a canoe, then yes. But Garnet and Black Attack isn’t a site about turning fallen tree trunks into canoes is it? We’re here to fart around, tell a few subtle dick jokes, and talk about college football. So let’s get to it.
1. ALABAMA (8-0)
For the season Bama has 52 offensive TDs, 4 defensive TDs, 2 special teams TDs, is 60% on field goals (good by Bama standards) and has 2 safeties.
2. LSU (7-1)
Every LSU fan’s pre and postgame speech.
3. GEORGIA (6-1)
When you win the Cocktail Party next weekend.
4. FLORIDA (6-1)
When you lose the Cocktail Party next weekend.
5. KENTUCKY (6-1)
We’re still more than a week away from Halloween and the Wildcats are bowl eligible! Celebrate, Kentucky fans!
6. TEXAS A&M (5-2)
Me trying to tell A&M fans that even though they are a better team than I thought they’d be, it wouldn’t surprise me if they lose all 5 of their remaining games.
7. AUBURN (5-3)
Auburn half-assed the last five games before last week. Maybe that beat down of Ole Miss is just what the doctor ordered for a team that started the season with CFP aspirations.
8. MISSISSIPPI STATE (4-3)
The Bulldogs have failed to score a TD in 2 of their last 3 games, and even though I think they are good enough to beat A&M next week, but they can’t do it the way they have been playing lately.
9. SOUTH CAROLINA (3-3)
South Carolina fans when I say I’m sorry for ranking Carolina below Tennessee last week, but see I have them below Auburn this week.
10. OLE MISS (5-3)
The SEC isn’t going to have enough bowl eligible teams to fill its allotment and it is all because Ole Miss is awful at cheating.
11. MISSOURI (4-3)
Missouri got it’s fourth win of the year and still hasn’t played the three teams below them in these power rankings!
12. TENNESSEE (3-4)
Let’s go live to Jeremy Pruitt’s halftime interview.
13. VANDERBILT (3-5)
Vanderbilt fans address the offense after Saturday’s game.
14. ARKANSAS (2-6)
EVERYONE! EVERYONE! ARKANSAS WON A GAME!
