Bama > LSU
It is Week 6 SEC Power Ranking time, which means it is also the announcement of the top two and maybe three teams in the nation. We learned more this weekend about our conference and the scope of football in general. One thing for sure, Alabama is the best team in College Football. The staff at RockyTopics has turned in their rankings and Alabama received every 1st place vote except for one. Here is how it looks.
#1 Alabama proved this week they are the team to beat by going to Ben Hill Griffin (formerly known as "the Swamp") and beat Florida like they stole something. Alabama has the best run defense in college football. Don’t even try to run on them. If they took a knee every play this week against Vandy, Alabama would still win by 12 points. How about Trent Richardson? Does that guy have some wheels? Not only is he pimpin' a $60K ride without a job, he can run with authority. Those Alabama boosters sure are courteous.
#2 LSU let’s see who did they play? Well, it will come to me later. LSU has a good team, but they are not Alabama. Alabama would beat them on any turf Les Miles chooses to graze from. With that said, they would beat Oklahoma so badly that Oklahoma would want to join the Sunbelt by halftime.
#3a Arkansas showed a lot of grit after getting beaten the way they did by Alabama. Then to fall as far behind Texas A&M as they did and to come back and win tells us that this team grew up fast. And Tyler Wilson can play. Arkansas still has some question marks and Texas A&M is no SEC team (that’s right), but Arkansas looks like a team that can make a run at the top five.
#3b Auburn yes, we have a tie for the third spot. As bad as I hate to admit it, the towel swinging of Trooper Taylor was enough to propel Auburn to another win Saturday. Auburn simply finds a way to win. Dyer looks like a featured SEC back and Trotter played smart enough to put his team in place to win. The Auburn D finally showed up, but the special teams looked poor at times.
#5 Florida is so gay and so are their fans. Florida came out swinging Saturday night and then they realized “they are who we thought they are” and they are better than us! Had Brantley not gotten hurt, Florida would have lost 52-10. After Brantley went down, Weis got conservative and Saban got bored. Florida has to find some offense from their green QB if they want to move up in this poll.
#6 South Carolina who knows what to expect with this team? Their D looks good, but their QB looks like Verne Lundquist in a Speedo (sick)! What is wrong with this team? They should win the East. Their problem is the name on their jersey. If you took every player and coach from this staff and put them at UT or Florida they would win the East and contend for the Championship. It must be awful to wake up and know you are a South Carolina fan.
#7 UGA they are like the Hamlet movie that Mel Gibson was in back in the 90’s. You know what I mean…..they spent all that money and the cast and props look great, but the story is still the same stupid story that nobody cares about. They get #7 simply because of the Georgia High School football programs. Just imagine if they were coached up.
#8 Tennessee has the best QB in the SEC, but still no running game and their special teams has found a way to get worse. They get a punt blocked, pick it up, run for the first down, and the whole bench celebrates like they just beat somebody. The defense has now given up four 50+ yard TDs in four games. They don’t know where to line up and they can’t tackle. This site may have some interesting reads on Wilcox before the season is over.
#9 Mississippi State what a bunch of rednecks. They are just not any good, but they are Miss St. All of the SEC media members that voted for Chris Relf in front of Tyler Bray should turn in their credentials today. Just another reason why we do not allow media members to contribute to RockyTopics.
#10 Vanderbilt did they play this weekend? I don’t get ESPN 8 so let’s just say they had the week off. How bad are the next two teams if an intramural team can be in front of you?
#11 Ole Miss does not deserve to be in the SEC. They are more like a Big 12 team. They look great coming out of the tunnel and nobody watches them on TV and everybody knows they are not nearly as good as they think they are. Hey, they don’t care how bad they are so why should we keep them in the conference? I would much rather have Southern Miss (and Brett Favre) in the conference than Ole Mess.
#12 Kentucky is simply terrible. They are so bad that I honestly thought UT was playing Kentucky Saturday instead of Buffalo, but then I noticed how well the Bulls blocked and I knew it was not Kentucky. They have officially decided to play basketball year round and they are going to use their football budget to buy each Basketball player a new SUV and a years supply of tattoos.
