      Oh……. ok? Yea, I’ll be there and hopefully south haven.

    parrish, these power rankings have always confused me….. what do you think about them? They pan out in the end? Or just a bunch of number crunching that tells us nothing?

    • Parrish Alford

      If they pan out in the end it means I’ve had a pretty good read on them right now. We’ll see. I have not been on the bandwagon that says LSU will fall off significantly this year, and I’m still waiting to see what A&M does. Good start for those guys on offense.

        Thanks Parrish.I actually would have LSU at #2. Good offensive showing. Also, I usually have a good read on teams after week 1 (or I think I do). However, I have a greater sense of wonder now than I did last week at this time. Lol. Oh well, guess that is why I don’t have your job. And you do a great job Parrish. Keep up the good work. Never hear a bad word about ya.

    I would put the sharkfins ahead of Florida and A&M and MSU a little lower..

    Georgia, may have lost this weekend to a very good Clemson team, and by the way out of the ACC Basketball conference, The Bull Dawg are still one of the strongest team within the SEC. I would have to slide LSU down the list near Ole MIss. Tenn and MIssouri much higher than where they are on this list, MSU and Auburn don’t know!. I would have to say, Alabama, S. Carolina, Gators, Georgia, Tex A&M, Texas A&M could win that SEC west this season.. Ole Miss a very long shot, but possible.
