This post is not for the faint of heart: it’s Power Poll time and the Hogs have continued to slide, now sitting at No. 11 on our ballot after being No. 8 last week and—gulp—No. 2 the week before. We’re still fairly optimistic about the rest of the season (call us crazy, but we think they still have a decent shot at making the NCAAs), but at this point it’s hard to argue that they deserve to be ranked ahead any of the teams who’ve actually won a game.
And on that cheery note, on to our ballot (be sure to check out the overall results over at the Ghost of Chucky…our fellow bloggers were a little kinder to the Hogs than we were):
5. South Carolina
6. Mississippi State
10. Ole Miss
