The so called experts were asked to rank the SEC versus other conferences.
It doesn't take a genius to guess where they placed the SEC.

Another good read with 22 days to go, less for the sc fans.

I liked it - there were some surprises. Massouli being chief among them. The Florida offense (sans OL) seems to be underrated in my opinion.

Vols highest rated position group was wideouts at #8. I know this is the least talented Vols team of my lifetime, but they have to have a position group better 8th in the conference.

I like how Arkansas is not being touted as legitimately good. It's understandable, because they have things yet to prove. You must earn respect. :usa:

This adds incentive. Plus, the Pigs may get somewhat overlooked by Georgia and Bama, whereas the Hogs will be hungry for some real r-e-s-p-e-c-t. :pirate:

Outscore them if you can. :dind:

I agree JSHD.

Anyone who takes a good look at the Hogs can't deny that the offense will be as good or better as any other in the nation. And with the combined experience and depth on defense, it is a logical analogy that the defense should be well improved.

Even if I wasn't a Hog fan, I'd have to give them a high grade considering the facts.

The only time I remember the Hogs being picked to win the SEC West, (McFadden and company), they didn't win it. The three times we have won the West, we were not picked to do so, so you are correct in that biased talk is cheap.

wow...

Masoli is a quick and powerful runner who is a mediocre passer.

Had Masoli not shown up, Ole Miss would've had Nathan Stanley at quarterback. Opponents wouldn't have had to game plan for Stanley, but they will for Masoli.

If Masoli was more than a mediocre passer, this would make way more sense. Did he not just basically say that Masoli is, for all intents and purposes, one dimensional? That is actually easier to game plan for, at least I think so.

It depends. I hear he runs 4.6 under normal conditions. Put a laptop under his arm with police dogs in pursuit, and he runs 4.3. The Nuttster may include laptops in the game plan. Beware!

The main problem I can see with Masoli in the SEC is his shorter height. Isn't he like only 5' 10"? :think:

There are some tall boys in the interior lines in the SEC, and throwing over them, especially down the middle lanes, may be more of a challenge than what Masoli was accustomed to in the PAC 10. :think:

I think UGA's secondary is slighty underrated, I would have them about 6th and the LBs are overrated at 4, probably belong about 6th right now as well. The DL at 7th is good, although I think we will be much higher in post-season rankings. Can't argue too much with any of UGA's other rankings.

I was actually surprised to see the UF backfield over the Arky backfield, I would reverse them at this point. It may be different post-season, but right now Ark looks much scarier at RB.

On the All-SEC teams, I would switch Jenkins(1st>2nd) and Gilmore(2nd>1st) at CB. Masoli at 2nd team QB is a joke, they are throwing the PAC10 a bone. I like him and I really like him in HDN's scheme, but I would have at least McElroy over him (Murray, Brantley, and Newton too). I personally think Jones is better than Pouncey at C, I think Ben is the best C in the conference and should make a run at best in the nation, but its splitting hairs at this point. I like the WRs, but I still think JJ is riding the hype, he is a second teamer to me, any of those guys on second team could be switched with him and this team wouldn't notice on the field. That is both a compliment to those second teamers and casting doubt about Julio, although he is really good.

UGA could also be in the conversation for easiest schedule. Ingram is the best offensive player by default, there really isn't anyone who could make a great case over him, even though IMO he isn't even the best RB on his own team. Not a knock on him, but Ingram = Emmitt Smith to me, very good running back made to look even better than he is by a dominant OL.

Most overrated player is interesting, I thought USC fans expected Saunders to be in the conversation for best TE and were really worried about the investigations into him? Sounds like the coaches didn't even expect much from him since a converted FB exited spring as the starter. :think:

Its understandable since we only have 8 starters back from a mediocre team, but I will say by the end of the year I think the Vols backfield, wide receivers, db's, and special teams will be above 8th in the conference. Front 7 will be brutal though and OLine is talented but extremely, extremely inexperienced so they will struggle mightily at the beginning of the year.

Indeed, UT has a TON of young talent, but when you look at what they have returning, it is scary. Combine that with the injury issues they are having along the DL in camp and UT is hard to have a lot of confidence in. They appear to be really weak along both the OL and DL and as we all know, he who wins the battle in the trenches, usually wins the battle on the scoreboard. I have very little confidence in UT's ability to win in the trenches right now. Not because the linemen are bad, just unproven. They could end up a great pair of lines, but its hard to have any confidence in a prediction like that right now.

Outside of the lines, they don't look so bad, but still appear to lack some quality depth. UT is a big project right now and CDD has a lot of work ahead of him. I pretty well agree with O&W, those units he mentioned have the potential to be among the league's tops, but those lines...ugh. :barf:

I don't think they'll be in the top of the league, just better than the very bottom lol. Dooley really likes the talent level on the o-line, but they are just too young to expect much from then early in the season (which is where the toughest part of the schedule is). 5 new starters on the o-line just takes time.

As for the d-line, these quotes say all you need to know about the DT situation............

SACK OF TATERS

Dooley has not been short on analogies or comedy this pre-season when breaking down things after practice to the media. And Tuesday was no different. Dooley was asked how his defensive tackles looked behind Montori Hughes.

"It's like having a sack of potatoes. You shake them up and you pull one out," Dooley deadpanned. "You throw another one in, you shake it up and pull another one out. You go bake it and it kind of taste the same. They all have a different shape. Some have more dots then the other. Some are longer. Some have more girth. They're a big sack of potatoes right now."

A reporter followed up with "So you're saying no one stood out?".

"I don't know how I can say it any clearer," Dooley said smiling.

Demps is awesome, but what can he do when he is focal point of the run game? Because run defenses last season keyed on Tebow and Demps wasn't as big a factor in defensive game-plans as he will be next year. Can he still be awesome when he is the #1 rush option rather than Tebow?

Moody has great talent, but hasn't really shown anything since getting to UF. I'm sure a big part of that was Tebow, but still. I wasn't really impressed with Moody when he did get the ball.

Not trying to hate on them, but its a whole new world without Tebow to take the heat off them. I still think they are top 3-5, I just gotta see something now before I heap praise.

I respectfully disagree Optik. I don't think Florida is top 5. The Gators are ranked there on past rep, nothing more. They have lost too much, player-wise and coach-wise, on the defensive side of the ball.

Last season, they were without experienced offensive coordinator Dan Mullen, and it often showed big time on the scoreboard, as we all saw. Florida's defense carried them last season. And now, to complicate matters, with Brantley at QB, the entire Gator offense has to adjust to a totally different style of play than they have been accustomed to since Meyer has been the Florida coach. :think:

To further complicate matters, they are now without their forever great defensive coordinator, Charlie Strong, and the few experienced defensive players that are returning must adjust to a new defensive coordinator. :think:

It is clearly a rebuilding year for the Gators. Nothing will come easy for Florida this season. Urban is pretty much on his own for the first time in his Florida career. :nono:

If Urban pulls off a one loss season this year, I'll be the first to call him the best coach in college football. :bow:

"I don't know how I can say it any clearer," Dooley said smiling.LOL, I'm already having fun following Dooley and Tennessee, especially the give and take with reporters and interviewers. It's hard to explain, but it's like I've been there before.

Well, feelings are worthless when it comes to playing football, but I have noticed some irony of circumstance.

Vince Dooley came to Georgia in 1964 and took over a storied program that was in pieces after 3-4 years of football disaster, and was asked to put it back together and make something of it. Not only did he do that but he went 7-3-1, beat Georgia Tech (an SEC power at the time), and took the team to a Bowl Game and won it.

Nobody really expected that much success, so Dooley was off to a great start by winning enough to create some excitement and put some football capital in the bank. Bottom line, VD put Humpty-Dumpty back together again by creating a structure for the long haul and at the same time winning enough, early enough, to create some stability.

All of that is to say that I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see Derek Dooley do the same at Tennessee. I know he's already completely transformed the structure. I don't know what Tennessee will do this year, but I do expect maximum productivity from the pieces available for Dooley to put together.

Win or lose, I believe most people are underestimating Tennessee. I won't be one of them.

I keep saying that this UT team has more gut-wrenched incentive to win than any other team in the conference, and that they will fight tooth and nail from start to finish, game in and game out. :pirate:

UT has normally been my most hated SEC foe. But that was a lot to do with Porky Fulmer.

Now, my sentiment has changed with the hiring of Dooley, combined with the now "underdog" factor.

UT fans could be kicking themselves in the butt for not showing more appreciation for Dooley here early on, as he could end up bolting for UGA after two good seasons.

I'd be more excited about Dooley if I were a UT fan. I mean c'mon, his dad is a true legend in the business, and usually, the apple falls near the tree.

I for one am really excited about Dooley. However, 2010 has been setting up the be a tough year no matter if Fulmer, Kiffin, or Dooley was the head ball coach. This is year's results have very little bearing on how good a coach I think Derek Dooley is. Hopefully other Vol fans feel the same.

I don't think Ole Miss has the worst set of receivers in the SEC....they just couldn't get Snead to throw in their direction last year.
