New, 8 comments

Powerpoll2009logo_medium

Here is RTT's ballot for the SEC Power Poll.  I made some adjustments to the computer numbers because a lot of teams are bunched very closely together, and head-to-head suggested a human override.  Here is the ballot proper, and the numbers follow below.

  1. Florida Gators
  2. Alabama Crimson Tide
  3. LSU Tigers
  4. Mississippi Rebels
  5. Georgia Bulldogs
  6. Auburn Tigers
  7. Tennessee Volunteers
  8. South Carolina Gamecocks
  9. Arkansas Razorbacks
  10. Kentucky Wildcats
  11. Mississippi St. Bulldogs
  12. Vanderbilt Commodores

I moved Georgia up (from below South Carolina to above Auburn) based on the seasonal results so far.  But in all honesty, these four teams are close enough to be in any particular order.  Looking at the end schedules, Tennessee has the best chance to move upwards with the best opportunity for two more wins and some healthy stat-padding (assuming all goes as expected).  Auburn, Georgia, and South Carolina all face uphill battles against Alabama, Georgia Tech, and Clemson, respectively.  But Mississippi has moved clear of the pack by a modest margin, and the top three are nearly unchallengeable at this point.  Arkansas and Kentucky look to end the season above average, though UK's games against Georgia and Tennessee won't be easy.
