14 Thoughts for Week 4

14 Thoughts is the Tidebits version of a PowerPoll…

14. Kentucky (previous 14) – The ‘Cats have a week off then face Florida, South Carolina and then ‘Bama.  Gulp

13. Mississippi State (12) – The Bulldogs, once again, found a way to lose to Auburn.  Any momentum the Dogs had in last couple of years is totally gone.

12. Vanderbilt (10) – Vandy faces UMass, UAB and Missouri over the next three weeks.  They need to sweep these three to make a bowl.

11. Tennessee (7) – Maybe Butch Jones can find some motivational points in their 59-14 beat down by Oregon to get the Vols ready for a trip to the Swamp.

10. Auburn (11) – Remember, Auburn, it was only Mississippi State.  The varsity schedule starts this week against LSU.

9. Arkansas (13)- The Hogs beat one of the worst teams in the country, Southern Miss, but didn’t struggle as they did last week against Samford.

8. Missouri – (8) – The Tigers didn’t struggle offensively against Toledo as much as Florida did, but the jury is still out on this team.  The Tigers could be 5-0 (and this year’s version of Mississippi State) heading into game six against Georgia.

7. Florida (6) – The Gators’ offense needs to come alive.  The Vols in the Swamp may be the jump start they need.

6. Ole Miss (9) – Going to Austin and beating Texas was a huge win for Hugh Freeze.  The Black Bears now have a week off before facing Alabama.

5. South Carolina (5) – The Gamecock are back on track after beating Vandy.

4. LSU (4) – Will the Tigers go after Auburn with the new and improved Cam Cameron passing attack or maul them with the run?  Or both?

3. Georgia (2) – North Texas is up this week for the Dawgs and then LSU awaits.

2. Texas A&M (4) – With Johnny Manziel and Mike Evans, it may not matter how bad the Aggie defense is.

1. Alabama (1) – Well, the Tide has been waiting for the Aggies since last year’s heartbreaking loss and we’ll finally see what Nick Saban has cooked up for Johnny Football.
