#8: Ole Miss Rebels

Lane Kiffin is a man who I feel is merely out of his element when it comes to this job that sits before him. However, he is good enough to keep Ole Miss afloat, especially after a year with the squad. Therefore, he won’t prove me right, but he won’t prove me wrong, either. A very middle-of-the-road season awaits the Rebels in the coming months.

#7: LSU Tigers

Head Coach Ed Orgeron has seemingly gotten nothing but hate ever since LSU’s 2019 championship run. Such a hangover season last year has many even calling for his firing, which I feel is a tad premature. The Tigers get outstanding talents every offseason, and they will be a big reason for LSU being as high as 7th in 2021. That is when Ed should and likely will get the boot.

#6: Kentucky Wildcats

What Wildcats HC Mark Stoops has accomplished so far at Kentucky is just downright awesome. Are they title contenders? No. But a title is not on their agenda right now, getting noticed is. And thanks to Stoops, that is exactly what is happening. At the end of the day, multiple SEC football teams are still ranked higher on this list almost solely due to how they outman the weapons attending UK. With that in mind, 6th place is not bad at all.
