Here's the RTT ballot for the third SEC Power Poll, hosted by SB Nation South Carolina blog Garnet and Black Attack.
- LSU. One touchdown by an opponent in three games. Opponents averaging a paltry 128 yards per game. Staple that to an offense ranked 18th in the country and you have yowza.
- Florida. One word, many syllables. Dishumiliarassment.
- Steve Spurrier. It wasn't huge, but Georgia's recovery against Western Carolina makes the Gamecock's victory over the Bulldogs look more like a good win than a gimme against a bad team and therefore lifts the OBC a bit.
- Alabama. Great game against the Razorbacks this Saturday, with the Tide ekeing out the win.
- Georgia. See No. 3.
- Arkansas. This game may later be viewed as a microcosm of Houston Nutt's season: a cute little comeback that ultimately falls short.
- Kentucky. Kentucky? Yeah, Kentucky. Great, great win for the Big Blue over cross-state rival Louisville. Randy Sanders has QB Andre Woodson looking like a Heisman contender and Tennessee fans pining for their old flame.
- Mississippi State. Mississippi State? Really? Yeah. Croom and Company are 2-1, with a win over an historically good SEC team (Auburn). Sure, they lost 45-0 to LSU, but let me ask you this: if Tennessee played LSU this year, would the final score be better or worse?
- Tennessee. Oh, boy. Not only are we behind our four fiercest rivals (Florida, Alabama, Spurrier, and Georgia) and LSU and Arkansas to boot, we're looking at the hind ends of Kentucky and Mississippi State. Sigh.
- Auburn. At least Tennessee's two losses are to two top ten teams. Auburn's are to Mississippi State and South Florida.
- Vanderbilt. The bottom two spots were decided by a head-to-head this past weekend. The 'Dores came out on top 31-17.
- Ole Miss. BAHRENSHAYFAHBAKEENATQUOTAHBAKA!!!
