Whomping Chattanooga tells us nothing.
Whomping FIU tells us nothing.
3. Ole Miss
In some sort of backwards way, the Rebels did fulfill their preseason expectations by being second in the West. Not the gung-ho, Phil Steele-style "most of my computer projections have Ole Miss going undefeated" expectations, but to end up second after all the turmoil is pretty good. Assuming they don't blow the Egg Bowl, of course.
I guess as the only other team that can finish above .500 in the conference they go here, but what is their best win? Auburn, I guess, followed by Georgia. They lost to each of the teams above them. That's understandable, but it's not what Tiger fans were hoping for.
Catching fire at just the right time.
Will they be fresh and ready after finally having a bye?
It was a nice bounceback game, but Vandy's still Vandy.
Suddenly dangerous. I like that from a football team.
10. South Carolina
Only one more loss to go before the collapse is complete. It amazes me as much as it does you, but Dabo has actually wrangled some consistency out of Clemson. And they said it couldn't be done.
11. Mississippi State
Close, but not quite: the story of the 2009 season.
The freshman running backs look good, at least.
