What's interesting to me is the dispersion of number one votes. Alabama deservedly receives the lion's share, with Oregon and Florida State snagging a few here and there, but what about Notre Dame, Georgia, Kansas State, and Oregon State? Certainly cases can be made in their favor, can't they?

Full poll analysis is here.

In the Southeastern Conference, the poll leader remains unanimously Alabama, with our Rebels coming in at number 10 behind Mizzou and ahead of Auburn.

1. Alabama Crimson Tide, 140 points (unanimous)
2. Georgia Bulldogs, 121
3. South Carolina Gamecocks, 116
4. LSU Tigers, 114
5. Florida Gators, 109
6. Mississippi St. Bulldogs, 85
7. Texas A&M Aggies, 84
8. Tennessee Volunteers, 71
9. Missouri Tigers, 57
10. Mississippi Rebels, 49
11. Auburn Tigers, 40
12. Vanderbilt Commodores, 34
13. Kentucky Wildcats, 20
14. Arkansas Razorbacks, 10

If When (right guys?) we beat Texas A&M this weekend, the Rebs should jump to at least number eight, one would think. THE JOURNEY TO THE TOP IS SLOW BUT STEADY Y'ALL.

Over at the Ess Bee Nation Dot Com, Spencer Hall's Alphabetical looks at the incredible performance by Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel, and Shutdown Fullback features friend of the Cup Steven Godfrey as a broke pimp/Cajun attorney. And the network's Bill Connelly has gobs of material involving numbers. Hail numbers! First is his numerical, which looks at the obscene offenseocalypse that was this past weekend, then there's his analysis of turnovers thus far this season to determine the "luckiest" and "unluckiest" football teams in America.

The luckiest college football team in America thus far? Why, none other than Mississippi State. You know we can't wait to see that shit regress to the mean around here.

Bill can also be seen on Football Outsiders which does all sorts of statistical analysis similar to what Me and Paul has so graciously done for us this season thus far. Check out where he compares the "success rates" and "points per play" of every offense in FBS football to determine that our Ole Miss Rebel offense is, in spite of what we may expect, the fifth most effective offense in America.
