BlogPoll: Ranking the SEC
Time for this week's CBS Sports BlogPoll, where I finally allow my deep seated biases shine through like a lighthouse on Christmas.
Frankly, after having my poll torn apart by losses by non-cotton state powers USC and Oklahoma, I'm letting go and stocking my poll with the one League I know features teams that do not choke (and yes USC, you choke a lot). Yes, the SEC. Particularly note the bottom, where I welcome marginal outfits such as Auburn and Kentucky. Hey, they haven't lost yet- and I'm not sure North Carolina is walking into either two venues and winning.
The Miami Hurricanes were my surprise pick this year- and I think they'll get by Tech this weekend- and everyone will soon be joining me in voting for the 'canes in the top five. They are sort of an honorary SEC outfit anyway: fast, minimal schooling, some felonies.
And, unfortunately, Tulsa's loss to the Sooners returns C-USA back to one (from two!) legit member of the poll:
