SEC Power Poll Ballot: Week 2

New, 36 comments

How does the Southeastern Conference shake up after two weeks of football?

Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Spor

Here is the Cup's SEC Power Poll ballot for week two. Surely you have a quibble or two, so share it in the comments section below. Once Team Speed Kills releases the full poll for the week, we'll be sure to let you know.

  1. Alabama - I wouldn't want to be Texas A&M this weekend.
  2. LSU - Zach Mettenberger was ridiculous against UAB. If he has a good season, the rest of the SEC could be in trouble.
  3. Georgia - Georgia was counted out. Aaron Murray and Todd Gurley missed the memo.
  4. South Carolina - With games against UNC and Georgia, Mike Davis is averaging nearly ten yards per carry. Where was he last season?
  5. Texas A&M - They have offensive dynamite in Johnny Manziel and Kevin Sumlin. Their defense is suspect though (Sam Houston St. averaged 9.4 yards per pass and 5.7 yards per rush).
  6. Florida - That didn't go well. Remember when Jeff Driskell was the #1 quarterback in high school?
  7. Ole Miss - Rebel fans should hope Bo Wallace doesn't get hurt. They're good when he's healthy. Without him? Yikes.
  8. Vanderbilt - The Vandy-South Carolina matchup this weekend could be excellent. Vandy's offense is balanced, and their defense is disciplined.
  9. Auburn - That win over Washington State looks a little better now, but I don't have a lot of faith in a Malzahn-coached quarterback who can't complete 60% of his passes against Arkansas State.
  10. Tennessee - Tennessee's defense got some gifts from Western Kentucky (five turnovers in six plays), but they still gave up far too much on the ground. Two big games coming up against Oregon and Florida. If they win one of those, they jump up this list.
  11. Missouri - The Tigers struggled to find running room against Toledo. Have fun with the rest of the SEC.
  12. Arkansas - Congrats on your 2-0 start, hog fans. Samford led you 21-17 at the end of the third. Worried?
  13. Mississippi State - Mississippi State beat the crap out of Alcorn State. That probably felt good. It likely didn't feel as good to see UT-San Antonio score 35 against Oklahoma State (against whom MSU scored three points).
  14. Kentucky - The Wildcats dominated Miami of Ohio. They have a long way to go before they're taken seriously though.
