SEC Power Rankings Rewind

By next Monday, the opening week of college football will be in the books. At that time — and with the benefit of being able to research and analyze the outcome of each game  Ryan Black will have a new batch of SEC power rankings. Until then, let’s revisit his preseason poll entering the 2013 campaign, which provided a (hyperbolic) “best-case/worst-case” scenario for all 14 teams in the league, counting them down two at a time.SEC_new_logo

Links to each of the seven articles in the countdown are available by clicking on the respective school below.


1. Alabama

2. South Carolina

3. Georgia

4. Texas A&M

5. LSU

6. Florida

7. Ole Miss

8. Vanderbilt

9. Auburn

10. Mississippi State

11. Missouri

12. Arkansas

13. Tennessee

14. Kentucky


  1. This is painful to see. But by the end of the season we will be ahead of Vandy and Ole Miss.

  2. This means nothing. It is the same as any pre season genies making predictions that never come true and at the end of the year, save a few guesses, the thing will be topsy turvey.

    Remember, the powers to be gave us Alabama vs Notre Dame, probably the worst national championship game ever and one of the worst games of the year.

    Just watch weekly and forget all this pre season nonsense.

  3. TigerEyez: We’ll see. Auburn will have every opportunity to show that on the field when it hosts Ole Miss on Oct. 5. And I’m interested to see what Ole Miss and Vanderbilt look like in Thursday’s opener. Should be a good game. –RB

  4. WT: Thanks for your optimism, as ever. I know that my predictions have no bearing on any game’s actual outcome. They’re still fun to make, anyway.

    Thanks for reading. –RB
