We didn't forget you were in the SEC, Mizzou.

1. Alabama: Only time will tell the ceiling on this team. That time is Saturday in College Station.

2. Georgia: Offense looked crisp in an absolute evisceration of South Carolina's vaunted defense. Then again, offense has never been Georgia's problem.

3. LSU: There are some weaknesses on this team to be sure. The difference this year is that an offense may compensate for them.

4. USC: Secondary was lackluster, and linebackers had a poor game. But any offense that can hang with Georgia is still a legitimate threat.

5. Texas A&M: The offense is what we thought. Unfortunately, so is that defense. This team will struggle in division play.

6. Florida: One of the very best defenses in football is being squandered by boneheaded coaching and a worse offense.

7. Ole Miss: Injuries, arrests already piling up. That said, they very well are capable of lighting Texas up and making Bo Wallace a household name.

8. Auburn: Two wins in two different fashions against two possible bowl teams. Hard to ignore the effect of coaching here.

9. Tennessee: Tennessee can run the ball again. Poor pass rush and weak linebacker play disguised by eleven thousand WKU turnovers.

10. Arkansas: Team took a step back against Samford. As expected, Year One of Bielema will having some growing pains while generally moving forward.

11. Missouri: How do you evaluate a team that plays no one OOC and which the media seems to forget is in the SEC?

12. Mississippi State: We still don't know how good or bad this team is. The bellwether game against Auburn will tell us a lot about both teams.

13. Vanderbilt: Yes, they lost a shootout to Ole Miss. Given the general improvement of the offenses in the East, this will be a trend for 2013.

14. Kentucky: Looked awful against WKU; looked dominant against Miami-OH. Big test against rival Louisville will tell us which is closer to the real Kentucky.
