- Florida - Honestly, I could have ranked them fourth just as easily as first.
- Kentucky - Calipari could probably coach Auburn's defense with that kind of language.
- Tennessee- The refs from Athens did not make it to Hartford.
- Georgia -Nice bounce back win after tough loss to a good Tennessee team. We will find out how serious Georgia is about making the NCAA tourney with a home game against Florida and a road trip to Lexington.
- Vandy - The SEC and NCAA tournaments will not be played at the Opera House, will they?
- South Carolina - The Gamecocks are getting pretty good at this fall-behind-furious-comeback-to-force-overtime-and-win thing.
- Alabama - Nice home win over Kentucky, although I don't know how you score exactly the same number of points against Kentucky and Auburn in the same week.
- Arkansas - The West's version of Vandy, but with a triple digit RPI and only one win over a team with a pulse.
- Mississippi - The only double digit RPI in the West makes up for only one win in conference. For now.
- Mississippi State - Sidney almost pulled off his first double-double against Georgia. Alas, the refs are not as forgiving as his coach; make him sit after five fouls.
- LSU -Number 11, with a bullet.
- Auburn - At least that damn Jeff Lebo isn't around to drag them up to mediocrity.
Florida got the nod at number one due to their 4-1 record. Kentucky, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Florida (in that order) all have RPIs in the teens. Georgia (at 42nd) and Vandy are the only teams in the top six without a 'bad' loss, but Georgia got the nod due to a road win (and despite the head to head loss in Nashville).
