It was a light week in SEC football. Everyone is here on Tua ankle watch for the LSU game but will he be healthy enough to get Alabama to No. 1?
Here at the headquarters between the toilet papered tree at Auburn and the hedges at Sanford Stadium we are getting 3D, hi-res, 4K ultimate HD, 1080dpi, ultra MRI scans of Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s ankle — in real time. We are watching that thing heal.
Everyone wants that matchup to have both teams at their best. No one knows, however, just how “healed” Tua’s ankle is going to be by Saturday afternoon. That’s they marquee game this weekend.
Last weekend, the River City Showdown was played — hey, can someone keep Steve Spurrier quiet please. Coach, we know it used to be the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. It’s 2019, and we can’t call it that anymore. Who said? Well I don’t know, someone who doesn’t condone underage drinking, I guess. Coach, I have to get to these power rankings, now go calm down and diagram a play or something.
Sorry, the Bulldogs won a very Georgia game against the Florida Gators in Jacksonville and all but secured their spot in the SEC Championship Game. Someone has breathed life into the Tennessee Volunteers and the Mississippi State Bulldogs; both teams are looking for a strong finish and bowl eligibility. Finally Arkansas and Vanderbilt are still bad at football.
With all due respect — or apologies — to Hershel Junior Walker, Bo Jackson and any pioneering “freak” athlete, here are your SEC power rankings heading into Week 11.
