Sorry for missing week four, but I had a football game early Sunday. Let's dive into what was a very interesting weekend in SEC.

Alabama: 100, +0

Alabama is playing like a team possessed right now. They stuck it to Kentucky even though it was as brutal as I thought it would be.  As of right now, I personally believe Alabama will be holding that crystal ball in January.


Florida: 95, +0

Bye week this week, but they're gonna have their hands full with an LSU team that will not quit.


Auburn: 90, +5

When UF played Tennessee they only managed around 350 yards of offense. The Tigers went to Neyland and racked up nearly 460 yards. I personally want to think that the 14 points AU gave up in the fourth was only because we had the game won, and not because our defense is that bad. 

This Auburn team is for real, this offense is for real, and the west needs to be on the look out for the Auburn Tigers to challenge for the West title.


Ole Miss: 85, -10 (from week 3)

I know it's the SEC, but if you want to be champs you have to win those kind of games.  However, the season ain't over yet. Florida lost last year to Ole Miss, and they still won it all. So don't count out Mississippi yet.


LSU: 85, +5

They just keep finding a way to win, and they do it in style, winning at the last possible second.


South Carolina: 80, +10

USC is hanging tough with everyone, and winning when they should.


UGA: 75, -5

I don't want to drop them, but you got to put those games away, especially at home.


Miss. State: 65, +10

Miss. State is playing everyone tough: AU, LSU, GT.  It may not happen this year, but Miss. State will return to bowls under Mullen.


Arkansas: 65, -15(from week 3)

Well, their defense isn't up to snuff yet, and their offense needs some tweaking before it's ready to compete in the SEC. 

With that said, the pieces are in place for a good future for Arkansas. All they have to do now is recruit well, and don't screw up.


Tennessee: 65, +0

That defense is tough, and Tennessee will be a factor in the future.  It may not be this year or next year, but Tennessee is on the rise (so long as Monte Kiffin stays there).


Kentucky and Vanderbilt: 55, +0

They wont be a major factor in deciding the East. They will finish fifth and sixth respectfully in the East.
