STGS SEC Power Rankings-Fall Break Edition

Posted on October 22, 2009

Hope everyone is enjoying their fall break on the campus of Christian Brothers University. Congrats to the soccer teams for their wins over Ouachita Baptist yesterday. Big ups to the Lady Buc seniors Christina Barone, Caitlyn Donegan, and Colleen McDaniel for finishing out their careers on top. The Lady Bucs will finish their season on the road while the men have two more home games at Collierville High School with Martin Methodist and Harding to close out their home schedule. Also shouts to my homie, Gavin “Dodgey” Smith, who received honors for player of the week at Lambuth University.

This week in the SEC, there’s going to be plenty of must-see matchups. The marquee game everyone should get their popcorn ready for is Auburn-LSU, which is always a good matchup between the two SEC rivals. I think personally the Bayou Bengals is going to win that game, unless if a replay of that 1994 game between LSU-Auburn occurs when Jamie Howard threw for six interceptions and well, spelled the end for Curley Hallman.

Alabama and Tennessee will continue their rivalry in Tuscaloosa, where the Vols haven’t won since 2003 while Florida travels to Mississippi State. South Carolina will host Vanderbilt at home and the “Nutt Bowl” will take place in Oxford between Ole Miss and Arkansas. Georgia gets an off week to prepare for Florida and Kentucky hosts Louisana-Monroe for Homecoming.

So here we go:


1. Alabama (The Tide was impressive against the Gamecocks last week, however like most of this season, the Tide won because of defense. Greg McElroy was 10-for-20 on Saturday. Tide must get better offensively. Period.)


2. Florida (This week’s sermon at Fellowship Memphis talked about grace. That grace was extended to the Florida Gators against Arkansas Saturday.)


3. LSU (Auburn is coming to town this week. Bayou Bengals need to get offense going after piss-poor showing against Florida two weeks ago.)


4. Georgia (Bulldogs have bye week until showdown with Florida. Can they stand and deliver?)


Tie-4. South Carolina (Same old story in Columbia but the Commodores are coming into town.)


6. Tennessee (Kiffin had one signature win against the Bulldogs at Neyland. Now let’s see can he beat the #1 team in the land.)


7. Auburn (Turns out, the Tigers are who we thought they were. However, stranger things have happened in the Auburn-LSU rivalry)


8. Ole Miss (Pesky Razorbacks squad is coming into Oxford. And they’re pissed.)


9. Mississippi State (Bullies, you just beat Middle Tennessee. What’s next? A date with Florida)


10. Arkansas (If only Ryan Mallett hadn’t overthrown those passes.)


11. Kentucky (Beating Auburn made people forget about naming Calipari’s speech.)


12. Vanderbilt (Sorry ladies, no bowling this year.)

My time’s up. Time to enjoy the remaining days of my fall break and thank God for that really hot girl who’s a baker. No shows this week as you know on Pirate Radio. The fun returns on Monday when Ginny Galloway and Jessica Yelvington talk soccer with yours truly on STGS Live at 6:00. Follow me on Twitter at
