2014 SEC Power Rankings – Week Ten

SEC EAST 1. Georgia (6-1, 4-1 SEC) – The Bulldogs will be without Todd Gurley for a couple more games with his suspension appeal recently being denied. Luckily for the Bulldogs though, the next two are against Florida and Kentucky.  Next game: Saturday, November 1st against Florida in Jacksonville.  2. Missouri (6-2, 3-1 SEC) – The Tigers barely got past Vanderbilt last week and remain No. 2 in a very weak SEC...

SEC Upset Special: Kentucky vs. Missouri

This week was tough for me because I think Florida has a better chance at upsetting Georgia than people think, but ultimately the one team I like more than them is Kentucky. The Wildcats—a 6-point underdog—will travel to Missouri to take on the Tigers in an important division matchup. I think Kentucky will pull the upset, and at the least win with the points, and here’s why. Missouri Really Has No Balance Offensively Last...

2014 SEC Power Rankings – Week Nine

SEC EAST  1. Georgia (6-1, 4-1, SEC) – The Bulldogs took care of Arkansas over the weekend and are now attempting to have Todd Gurley reinstated before the Florida game. The season may rest on the NCAA’s decision.  Next game: Saturday, November 1st against Florida in Jacksonville.  2. Missouri (5-2, 2-1, SEC) – The Tigers scored four return touchdowns in their 42-13 win over the Gators last week....

SEC Upset Special: South Carolina vs. Auburn

It hasn’t been the best season for South Carolina, but you should like the Gamecocks’ chances of keeping the Auburn game close. Steve Spurrier’s squad will enter Saturday’s matchup as a 17.5-point underdog, but I will give you a couple reasons why his team will be able to win with the points. Time of Possession The Gamecocks offense knows how to sustain drives and they know how to chew clock as well. One example from last...

2014 SEC Power Rankings – Week Eight

SEC EAST 1. Georgia (5-1, 3-1 SEC) – The Bulldogs rolled in their last outing despite losing Heisman candidate Todd Gurley to a suspension. They’re at the top of the East until someone knocks them off. Next game: Saturday, October 18th at Arkansas. Lookout for the upset. 2. Kentucky (5-1, 2-1 SEC) – The Wildcats continue to win despite everyone continuing to bet against them. They face a very difficult...

SEC Upset Special: Georgia vs. Arkansas

The Razorbacks are still searching for their first conference win, against a Georgia team that has rebounded well after the early loss to South Carolina. With a strong running game and timely defense, the Hogs will be able to hang with Gurley-less Georgia on Saturday. Arkansas’s Ability to Move the Ball The Razorbacks offense has been one of the most impressive units this season, but it’s not very flashy. They average...

College Football Reality Has an SEC Bias

College Football Reality Has an SEC Bias There’s been some complaining across the national landscape that there’s a “media bias” which favors Southeastern Conference teams amongst pollsters. Mississippi State stunned the world with its jaunt to #1 in the country (45 of 60 first place votes). Ole Miss isn’t far off their heels at #3 (with three first place votes). The best “one-loss” teams are both from the SEC, with Auburn...

2014 SEC Power Rankings – Week Seven

SEC East 1. Georgia (4-1, 2-1 SEC) - An easy victory over Vanderbilt last week puts the Bulldogs on top of the SEC East this week. The two best teams in the East play this Saturday, but the Bulldogs will be without suspended Heisman Trophy candidate Todd Gurley.   Next game: Saturday, October 11th at Missouri. 2. Missouri (4-1, 1-0 SEC) - They were off last weekend, but a loss to Indiana is the only thing keeping the Tigers...

SEC Upset Special: Ole Miss vs. Texas A&M

Last week Ole Miss was the focus of my SEC Upset Special, but this weekend the Rebels are on the opposite side of things. After upsetting the top-ranked Crimson Tide, Ole Miss could lose its No.3 ranking on Saturday. Inconsistencies in Ole Miss Offense Ole Miss played outstanding on defense against Alabama, which allowed them to get off to a slow start offensively. No matter how great the Rebels defense is, A&M is the...

2014 SEC Power Rankings – Week Six

SEC East 1. Georgia (3-1, 1-1 SEC) - The Bulldogs are the No. 1 team in the East for now, despite a close win against the Tennessee Volunteers. They’ve got serious questions on defense, but they’re still the best the East has to offer for now. Todd Gurley is the real deal. Next game: Saturday, October 4th against Vanderbilt. 2. Missouri (4-1, 1-0 SEC) - The Tigers went to Columbia, South Carolina and came away...
