This is more of a forward looking poll than a “who has beaten who” poll, but I do penalize severely for home, out of conference losses to non top 25 teams.

1. Florida

Tim Tebow heard Chuck Norris was inside the walls of Troy and the Trojan Horse asked to hide inside him.

2. Alabama

Can we pretty much guarantee Alabama isn't going to cover the week after a big, non-conference win?

3. Ole Miss

I don’t know if I can wait 'til Sept. 24 (at South Carolina) to find out if Ole Miss is for real (SEC title real), but I guess I will have to with directional Louisiana this week.

4. LSU

I thought it never rains in Tiger Stadium?

5. Georgia

All 5'8" of Rennie Curran (don’t believe the media guide) stopped South Carolina from starting with two road wins for the first time in their history.

6. South Carolina

I don't think the Gamecocks should drop much for covering the spread. They did better than people expected, right?

7. Arkansas

Petrino says he spent most of the preseason preparing for Georgia (why can’t every coach just tell the truth about openers vs FCS teams?); we'll find out on Saturday.

8. Auburn

So far, Chizik is winning the battle of first year coaches. Can we call their single wing, the Wild Cheez(ik)?

9. Kentucky

Kentucky at No. 9? Dang this conference is deep!

10. Vanderbilt

Covering big spreads is Bobby Johnson's thang.

11. Tennessee

Jonathan Crompton...fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on you and me.

12. Mississippi State

Is Sly Croom available for a Defensive Coordinator gig? You can't have everything in Starkville.
