Rank, Team, Previous
1. Alabama (1): I keep them here because they’re unbeaten, but Florida is playing the best ball in the league right now.
2. Florida (2): Gators clicking on all cylinders and will beat Alabama in Atlanta if they don’t let up, which they’ve shown themselves capable of doing.
3. Georgia (3): Humbled vs. Florida but still No. 3 on the body of work.
4. LSU (4): Closer to the fifth team than the third one.
5. South Carolina (5): Quietly putting together a very solid year.
6. Ole Miss (6): In two-thirds of a season Nutt has matched Orgeron’s three-year SEC win total.
7. Vanderbilt (7): Six wins and bowl eligibility are not a given.
8. Arkansas (12): Razorbacks now have what four teams behind them do not — a quality win.
9. Kentucky (11): Cats lack the marquee win but are bowl eligible.
10. Auburn (8): With Georgia and Alabama left on the schedule, this week against Tenn-Martin could be Auburn’s last win.
11. Tennessee (9): Will play with emotion and win this week against Wyoming and next week against Vanderbilt.
12. Mississippi State (10): Dogs say they’re confident, but play on the field doesn’t show it.

    Nice comment on the Rebs PA. And to think, even just a week or two ago, I was bashed for making comments about taking so long to get rid of Orgeron. If 3 SEC wins in one season versus 3 in 3 isn’t proof in the pudding, I don’t know what is. I’m hearing alot of thoughts about Houston Nutt leaving. They probably have no merit, but if you start thinking about it, why would anyone not want to better themselves and their family? I’m sure 3 time a salary negates alot of the beauty and small-town love for Oxford that may exsist with the Nutt Family. I hope he doesn’t leave, but I really can’t say I’d blame him for taking more money. As long as he doesn’t look us all in the eye and say that he’s not leaving, then the next day have on a different color tie in a different state, it won’t be near as terrible as our previous experiences. Just my take on the deal.

    I agree Matt. I think money would be the only motivation, and it would have to be lots of it. The way the coaching business works every year, you can’t rule things out.

    I thing that Miss State and Vandy should swap places here on this rating. The Rebs gota play dem dawgies and don’t want to get them all riled up.They beat the Rebs not good. It could mess up my Thanksgiving dinner of collar greens and hamhocks. Cant afford one dem turkey dinners.

  7. m4rebs Says:

    Don’t worry Jimmy, it won’t be long till Obama takes all of our hard-earned money and redistributes it so none of us will be able to afford one dem turkey dinners.

    When can we start calling this thief Robin Hood. Take from the rich and give to the “I’d rather do anything besides work” crowd.

  9. JB Says:

    I thing the Gators will be the SEC Champs. I believe they are a little better team that the Tide.

  10. Will Says:

    I hate to start this discussion/argument again, but I am weary of this “O” bashing. The man is gone! Let it go! Why do we constantly have to connect his record with the current record? I guess it is a good story line to some, but I view it as beating a dead horse. It does not make what Coach Nutt has done this year any better to constantly bring up what Orgeron did in his three years. It really is a low standard for comparison.

    It probably isn’t the best analogy, but I see it like a broken marriage. If after the divorce, there is a remarriage and in the new marriage you constantly refer to the previous failures how does that make the new marriage any happier? Does that make sense?

    I may be looking through red & blue glasses, but I think “O” would have had his best year this year. Coach Nutt is doing what he is doing with players recruited by Orgeron. Maybe he is coaching them up, but that involves a lot of speculation on our part. We don’t know how their maturation might just be the biggest factor rather than coaching up.

    That being said, I’m very, very happy with Coach Nutt. I do not believe he will leave Ole Miss any time soon. His character is totally different from the Petrino’s and Saban’s of this world.


  11. djrebel Says:

    Will, for what it’s worth, it’s been a while since I’ve beat up on Ed, and I don’t do it strictly for entertainment value.

    I think it’s important to point out where the program has been to fully illustrate where it is. Three SEC wins by November 2 is cause for ridicule in some places. This season at Ole Miss it’s evidence of growth.

    Also, you obviously reference Orgeron and the past when the players talk with great excitement about having something to play for in November.

    There will be much less mention of Orgeron next year, because the comparison will be Nutts second year to Nutt’s first year.

    There will be comparisons, because they are a significant in determining where you are and how to get where you want to be.

    i for one will always be grearful to coach O for the tireless effort he gave to ole miss. the current crop of players is a tribute to his effort. but i am also happy to have coach nutt at the helm this year as it is obvious to me he is a better head coach than coach O. also pa i think the tide is about to get a good old fassioned tale kicking this week.

  13. Colten Says:

    Orgeron had no business tryin to head coach just face the facts he is right were he needs to be now coaching defense in the NFL
