Arkansas Drops to #9 in the SEC Power Poll

Arkansas fell from #5 to #9 in this week’s Power Poll after the loss to Ole Miss.  The good news is that it would be almost impossible for us to lose to Eastern Michigan on Saturday.

POLL Results

secpowerpoll2009week81. ALABAMA (12), 232

  • Forget Ingram for Heisman, how about Terrance Cody for Heisman! He would have no problem with that dinner circuit. But seriously, Alabama has to find a passing game to win the national title.–

2. FLORIDA (8), 228

  • If this power poll included the officials, they’d be No. 1 by a wide margin. Another week, another helping hand.–Over the Pylon

3. LSU, 200

  • That LSU is the SEC’s third best is not in doubt.  What is more uncertain is if they’re closer to Alabama and Florida or the pack.–Save the Shield


  • They’re right on pace to be, well, exactly where they’ve always been for this century.–Rocky Top Talk

5. OLE MISS, 155

  • Wow, who had any idea that giving the ball to Dexter McCluster 25+ times would be a good idea? Inconceivable! No one could have seen it coming! Talk about success coming completely out of left field!–War Blog Eagle


  • The box score doesn’t lie: Crompton was 21-of-36 for 265 yards, one TD, and one pick against Alabama. Which means UT’s surge over the last couple weeks may not be a fluke.–Hey Jenny Slater

7. GEORGIA, 116

  • UGA is coming off its most impressive defensive performance of the season before facing Florida. And I meant the Vandy game not the bye week. Okay … coming off their TWO best defensive performances.–Orange and Blue Hue


  • Rebouding surprisingly better than anticipated after Hartline went down, but they can’t survive more injuries.–Rocky Top Talk


  • It seems that Arkansas’ glaring weakness has been exposed: they don’t play defense.  As Ole Miss showed, if you press them, the ‘Backs also really don’t play offense either.–Gate 21

10. AUBURN, 70

  • Hey, did anybody notice that Paul Rhodes has already matched Chizik’s career win total at Iowa State?–Get the Picture


  • Dan Mullen has put together the best 3-5 team in America. That always sounds like a much better compliment in my head than it looks like it is when I write it down … —Dawg Sports


  • Vanderbilt is the Vanderbilt of the SEC.–Dawg Sports
