Florida

+1

The Gators are lucky UGA and SoCar was so close. I say bye weeks aren't good for national perception of Florida. Why? Because the epic myth of Tim Tebow somehow proves occasionally to be less impressive than the actual performance of Tim Tebow.

2


Georgia

-1

The South Carolina game was obviously dangerous. It seemed pre-game to represent the last gasp of a desperate man. Yet, Richt survived South Carolina and looks good to be 4-0 when he hosts Alabama.

3


LSU

+1

LSU is at our #3 spot by default. It's hard to rank anybody higher than the Bayou Bengals, but that doesn't mean the West is theirs.

4


Alabama

+1

Alabama does not deserve to be in the top ten, but don't tell that to a 'Bama fan (RTR! BaMa Is BaCk!!!!1). They'll cut greasy, bacony strips offa Petrino's back this Saturday, though. This matchup will determine who, out of JPW or Casey Dick, will e the biggest NFL wash-up.

5


Auburn

-2

Did Auburn not play like a team who owed money to the mob on Saturday? How many gift wrapped opportunities to win did they give the Bulldogs?

6


Vanderbilt

---

Solidly. Vanderbilt should have been ranked by the Associated Press today (SRSLY, Florida State?), and too bad, too. Everything that lives, moves, and breathes tells us that this ride cannot last.

7


Tennessee

+2

Tennessee killed UAB... But then UCLA spread their cheeks and took a 59-sized massive Mormon shot, placing an ominous orange stain on Phil's loss in Los Angeles.

8


Ole Miss

---

The Rebles didn't impress on Saturday, but they didn't go into the 4th quarter wondering if they were going to win or not (ahem). Next week's Vanderbilt matchup is, believe it or not, incredibly significant.

9


Kentucky

-2

Of all the bullets dodged Saturday, Rich Brooks dodged the biggest. A loss to Middle Tennessee State would have been the conference's second-most embarrassing of the season.

10


South Carolina

---

The Gamecocks put everything on the table for this game and came up short. Were I a Gamecock fan, I would be pretty broken and sour because the Georgia game didn't even feel like a "moral victory."

11


Arkansas

---

For Arkansas, it's a good thing Mississippi State Croomed itself against Auburn. And only imagine how solidly last Arkansas would be if the game against Texas hadn't been postponed.

12


Mississippi State

---

Saturday's 3-2 final in Starkville is a deceptive score. I say that because State's safety was awarded after an Auburn holding penalty in the endzone. Auburn literally gave State points. Ouch.
