SEC Power Poll Results for Week 10: Settle


1. LSU Tigers, 108 points (9 first-place votes)
2. Alabama Crimson Tide, 99
3. Arkansas Razorbacks, 90
4. Georgia Bulldogs, 77
5. South Carolina Gamecocks, 72
6. Auburn Tigers, 67
7. Florida Gators, 54
8. Vanderbilt Commodores, 40
9. Mississippi St. Bulldogs, 39
10. Tennessee Volunteers, 28
11. Kentucky Wildcats, 19
12. Mississippi Rebels, 9

Things are settling in at several places -- we have unanimous votes on the first three places, No. 7 and last place after last weeks epic Kentucky vs. Ole Miss showdown. Of course, settling in doesn't mean things have to make sense. Auburn beat South Carolina who beat Georgia, but our voters have gone Georgia higher than South Carolina higher than Auburn. (That seems to be more related to a reluctance to rank Auburn over Georgia, which leaves the Gamecocks able to claim some fourth-place votes that gives them an edge overall. If that's the case, it's fixed easily enough; the two teams play this weekend.)

The good news is that the ‘Cats scored 20 fourth-quarter points to overcome a 13-10 deficit and beat Ole Miss. The bad news is that they had to do that in the first place.--Dawg Sports


Les Miles has won high-octane shootouts, he's won with special teams, last week he won a game of straight-up Cro-Magnon trench warfare. He's schooled his daughter at pickup hoops. Right now he's probably blasting a group of Korean teenagers off the map in Modern Warfare 3. Is there any kind of contest he can't win?--SBN Atlanta

In light of his position on the Bayou Bengals' two losses in 2007, does Les Miles get to celebrate this win? He thinks last Saturday night's showdown in Tuscaloosa should count as a tie, right?--Dawg Sports


What's a more embarrassing sign for the Ole Miss program: The fact that rumors are circulating about the Rebels making overtures to Tommy Tuberville for their head-coaching position, or the fact that said rumors aren't the least bit implausible?--SBN Atlanta

If the Commodores played in the ACC or Big Ten, they'd probably have a shot at a January bowl right now. If they played in the Big East, they'd be leading the conference by two games.--SBN Atlanta
