Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE
Oregon versus Kansas State! It's exactly the type of football game that very few SEC fans actually want to watch.
With Texas A&M beating Alabama, the Oregon Ducks slide into first place and Kansas State becomes their likely competition for the BCS National Title... that is, if the SB Nation BlogPoll had its say.
The Tide and Aggies' respective shifts are obvious, as are Louisville's, Boise State's, and Schtuyte's (/rattle).
The Alabama Crimson Tide did fare a little better in the SEC Power Poll, but only because the question of "where the hell else are we going to rank them" has a more-than-apparent answer of "nowhere, because in reality they are the best, ergo 'most powerful' team in the SEC."
1. Alabama Crimson Tide, 122 points (6 first-place votes)
2. Georgia Bulldogs, 112 (2)
3. Texas A&M Aggies, 108 (1)
4. LSU Tigers, 104
5. Florida Gators, 92
6. South Carolina Gamecocks, 83
7. Mississippi St. Bulldogs, 68
8. Vanderbilt Commodores, 67
9. Mississippi Rebels, 51
10. Missouri Tigers, 47
11. Arkansas Razorbacks, 36
12. Tennessee Volunteers, 28
13. Auburn Tigers, 15
14. Kentucky Wildcats, 12

And for our little tour around the SB Nation network this week, might I direct you to the Alphabetical, which explores the confusion wrought by Johnny Foobaw? Or how about the Numerical, which looks at circus catches, bizarre box scores, and perhaps poor analogies. Or, I know, let me share with you (really, you'll want to read this) Jon Bois making fun of a shitty misogynistic sports bar for being dumb and shitty and stupid and stuff. Really, it's worth a read.
