Here's the RTT ballot for this week's SEC Power Poll, hosted by SB Nation South Carolina blog Garnet and Black Attack. Why are these teams in a different order than they are in our BlogPoll ballot? Because there, we're looking at what the teams have done. Here, we're guessing who would beat whom right now, based partly on what they've done but also on what we think they'd do.
- LSU. Handled by Florida at home this week until . . . Guts! Guts! Guts, guts, GUTS! Let me ask you this Vol fans: would Tennessee have gone for it on fourth down down by three while in field goal territory and when overtime was about a minute away?
- Florida. See No. 1. They had the Tigers beat. In Baton Rouge. On Saturday night.
- Steve Spurrier. Beat Kentucky handily on Thursday night. The Gamecocks' one loss was at LSU.
- Kentucky. The 'Cats are probably looking at a three game losing streak starting last Thursday with Steve Spurrier, and ending with visits from LSU and Florida on consecutive weeks.
- Tennessee. Woo, back into the top half of the SEC. Embarrassee in the Swamp against the Gators, embarrassor at home against the Dawgs. Which are we? Stay tuned.
- Georgia. They're probably not as bad as we made them look on Saturday. Sure was fun, though, huh?
- Auburn . Lose to Mississippi State. Beat Florida. Go figure.
- Alabama. I repeat: four million a year, twelve games, $333,333 per game. Two losses for a total cost to the University of Alabama of $666,666. That cannot be a coincidence.
Mississippi State. This may actually be too low. Losses to LSU and
South CarolinaSteve Spurrier are nothing to be ashamed of.
- Arkansas. Sign No. 47 that your problems are not going away: fans begin to commission planes bearing derogatory banners to fly over the stadium during games.
- Ole Miss. 'BAMAWECOMINFOYAHCHILLEN!
- Vanderbilt. Somebody has to be last, right?
