Waiting for the boom

Welcome back to the depths of depression
Welcome back to the depths of depression
Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

It was a slow week in the SEC as everybody played their designated tune-up blowout game (that's including Ole Miss playing Vanderbilt). So nothing was really revealed this week other than just how terrible Vanderbilt really is. I mean, we all kind of figured after losing to Temple, but the clock has long since struck midnight and Vanderbilt has turned back into a pumpkin.

About the only thing we did learn this week is that we are better than the Big Ten because, well, who isn't?

1 GEORGIA
Beat the snot out of Bye Week.

2 AUBURN
There's a logjam for the top four slots in the West. You know what? I'm giving the defending SEC champs the benefit of the doubt.

3 TEXAS A&M
I'm just throwing this out there... maybe the USCe win isn't all that great.

4 LSU
Wisely used the Buga handsign while doing the Heisman pose. Always be branding. This opened him up to criticism from Kirk Herbstreit, who took a break from tweeting about his genuine love of Coke Zero to criticize Fournette for this bit of branding.

5 ALABAMA
I'm sure that Bama fans will calmly and rationally discuss this QB situation, relying on their good judgment and - OH MY GOD! IT'S COMING RIGHT FOR US!

6 MIZZOU
They proved that they don't belong in the Big Ten. They can convincingly beat a MAC team.

7 OLE MISS
Dominated an SEC rival. Sure, it was Vandy, but that counts.

8 MISSISSIPPI STATE
Scuffled with UAB long enough that the upset possibility at least crossed a few people's minds.

9 FLORIDA
Best offense in the country!

10 TENNESSEE
Enjoy this week because next week... Oklahoma.

11 ARKANSAS
I don't care that it was Nicholls St, 73 points, y'all! okay, I care that it was Nicholls State.

12 SOUTH CAROLINA
Regrouped from an epic beatdown by struggling to beat East Carolina.

13 KENTUCKY
They aren't Vanderbilt.

14 VANDERBILT
Congratulations! You are back to being Vandy!
