Vassallo: SEC Strength Ratings Following Week 4

Alabama: 100
Can anyone stop this juggernaut? The Tide continues to roll over everyone in its path.

Georgia: 93
The Bulldogs flexing its muscles in the east. Kentucky and Florida still in the hunt.

LSU: 93
The Tigers are a solid team with Ole Miss next in the batter’s box followed by another difficult road test.

Kentucky: 90
These Wildcats just destroyed the bulldog of the West. Definitely the SEC surprise of 2018.

Auburn: 87
The jury is still out on the Tigers. The trip to Starkville in two weeks will define their year.

South Carolina: 87

The Vanderbilt bubble burst Saturday. The “anchor” sank the Dores’ ship. The Gamecock “D” was impressive.

Texas A&M: 87
Another tough loss. Kentucky in two weeks now is a must win.

MSU: 83
Florida and Auburn coming up both at home. The Lexington loss was bad.

Florida: 80
The destruction of Rocky Top was most points scored by Gators in Neyland. MSU and LSU waiting in the wings.

Missouri: 77

Defense not able to cover for an “O” averaging 40 points per game.

Vanderbilt: 70

The night the lights went out in Nashville, not from the lightning storm either but the Gamecock blowout.

Ole Miss: 67
Death Valley provides the Rebs another opp to gain respectability.

Tennessee: 64
An 0-8 conference tally is appearing more likely. The next four opponents…..GA/AU/AL/SC with three away!

Arkansas: 60
The Hogs keep slip sliding away. A&M and Bama coming next to the “hog roast.”

Now that the season is a third over, the Rebs at 3-1 (0-1 in the league) must raise the bar if it’s going to make a statement in 2018 in conference play. Attempting a comeback in Death Valley is not the easiest venue to achieve this. However, this is another contest on national television. Let’s hope it ends better than the last one.
