Great job with your picks last week by the way.

I think this is a big time sandwich game for A&M.. I also think that A&M although a realy good offensive team is not up to S.E.C. par at defense. I think combining the two makes  A&M vunerable this weekend.I see LaTech scoring in the 30's and making this game alot close than the experts think.

Love SC, will be sprinkling some on the ML myself. LSU is atrocious on offense, the wrong team is favored IMO. Under also worth looking at.

Like Ole Miss as well.

Good luck Carter.

Hey, Carter --  I think a lot of us would love to hear your thoughts on this analysis of all 14 SEC teams.  This is from one of the ESPN Blogs.  Do you see anything that you feel is spot on, or anything that you clearly disagree with? 

Thanks much for your insight.

Super Chicken 

SEC power rankings for Week 7:

1. Alabama (5-0; LW: 1): The Tide was off last week, so it didn't have a chance to widen its lead on the SEC and the rest of the country. The last thing Alabama's upcoming opponents want is a rested Tide team. I can only imagine the extra work Nick Saban put his team through in order to clean up all those little things.

2. South Carolina (6-0; LW: 4): The Gamecocks completely dominated Georgia over the weekend. South Carolina's offense is extremely balanced and looks like it can just jump on
Marcus Lattimore's shoulders at this point. He's just getting stronger and stronger. The defense is smothering up front and stopping that defensive line has been a nightmare for teams. But road games at LSU and Florida will be tough.

3. Florida (5-0; LW: 5): The Gators might not have the most exciting offense, but that defense is tremendous. Florida put a load of pressure on LSU quarterback
Zach Mettenberger over the weekend and clobbered the Tigers' running game. Behind Mike Gillislee, the Gators pounded LSU with their running game, but the passing game is still a concern. If Florida can get more through the air, this offense could start to really give defenses fits.

4. LSU (5-1; LW: 2): It's obvious that the Tigers can't put everything on their defense. Even with how talented LSU is on the defensive side of the ball, the offense needs major work, especially in the passing game. Mettenberger hasn't come close to living up to the hype and just doesn't look comfortable standing in LSU's pocket. The running game was one of the SEC's best, but was quieted against Florida because there just wasn't the threat to pass. No offensive balance could doom this team.

5. Georgia (5-1; LW: 3): The concern about the defense continues to grow after the Bulldogs' 28-point loss to the Gamecocks. USC was intent on running and Georgia couldn't do anything to stop it, allowing 232 rushing yards.
Jarvis Jones has been a non-factor for the past two weeks and Aaron Murray's big-game struggles came right back in Columbia, S.C. The good news is the Bulldogs have the SEC East's easiest schedule from here on out.

6. Mississippi State (5-0; LW: 6): These Bulldogs weren't flashy, but they were very efficient against Kentucky.
Tyler Russell is one of seven FBS quarterbacks with 10-plus passing touchdowns and fewer than two interceptions this season, while LaDarius Perkins is the only player in the SEC to be in the top two in rushing yards per game (99.8) and all-purpose yards per game (130.0). That defense has been pretty stout as well, as the Bulldogs have trailed for just 10:19 this season.

7. Texas A&M (4-1; LW: 7):
Johnny Manziel grabbed hero status in Oxford, Miss., over the weekend. The redshirt freshman quarterback led the Aggies to 13 straight points in the fourth quarter, after trailing Ole Miss by 10. He had a nifty 29-yard touchdown run to trim the Rebels' lead to four and then found Ryan Swope for the game-winning 20-yard touchdown pass with 1:46 remaining. What's more impressive is the Aggies got the win despite committing six turnovers.

And the rest ...

8. Tennessee (3-2; LW: 8): The Vols were off, but have a very important matchup with Mississippi State this weekend. We finally saw good balance out of the Vols against an SEC opponent in their shootout loss to Georgia two weeks ago, but most of the extra time Tennessee had better have been devoted to doing something about that defense. The Vols are 13th in the SEC in total defense (425.8 yards per game), and that just won't cut it if Tennessee is going to make any sort of second-half run.

9. Vanderbilt (2-3; LW: 12): The Commodores got a big win on the road at Missouri. Like prior games, Vandy wasn't great when it had the ball, but it played tough for four quarters and outlasted a banged-up Mizzou team. The defense really has been impressive for most of the season, but the Commodores have to get more out of the offense.

10. Ole Miss (3-3; LW: 10): After a heartbreaking loss to the Aggies, Ole Miss now has lost 16 straight SEC games. Blowing that 10-point lead in the fourth quarter probably will haunt this team all week. There's no doubt the Rebels can move the ball, but costly turnovers have doomed this offense. The defense has made strides since last season, but there's still too much break in this unit.

11. Arkansas (2-4; LW: 13): Just when you think the Hogs are done, they find some strength and walk out of Auburn with a huge win over the struggling Tigers. Auburn has had a plethora of issues this season, but from a mental aspect, this was a big win for Arkansas' team. The Razorbacks aren't totally out of the bowl hunt now, but there's still a lot of ground for this team to make up. Finally holding an offense in check, forcing five turnovers and getting eight sacks is a good start.

12. Missouri (3-3; LW: 9): This has not been the SEC welcome the Tigers expected. Mizzou has been banged up all year and pushed around by its SEC counterparts.
James Franklin is out for a few weeks with a knee sprain. Corbin Berkstresser is now the starting quarterback, and he'd better get over his rough performance against Vandy, where he hit only 9 of his 30 passes. Things just get harder, as the Tigers host No. 1 Alabama Saturday.

13. Auburn (1-4; LW: 11): Things just aren't working on the Plains. With an extra week to prepare for the SEC's worst defense, the Tigers mustered only 321 yards of offense against Arkansas and found the end zone once.
Kiehl Frazier was benched for Clint Moseley at quarterback, but two fourth-quarter interceptions doomed Auburn. The offense just has too many issues right now, and the Tigers might have lost their chance at a postseason berth with Saturday's no-show.

14. Kentucky (1-5; LW: 14): Injuries have crippled this team and things just aren't getting any better for the Wildcats. Kentucky was forced to play two freshmen at quarterback, and lost one (
Patrick Towles) to an ankle injury, against Mississippi State. The Wildcats already were working without their starting running back. Things continue to heat up around Joker Phillips, whose team is hovering around the bottom of the SEC in most offensive and defensive categories.

everyone down on LSU, but if minter doesnt go out with cramps im not sure flordia would have won... its not like flordia doinated them, at halftime flordia had 81 total yards... minter goes out in the 3rd and the freshman lb's were out of position... flordia took advantage of it and won the game.. south caro injury to Starting DT Byron Jerideau is going to be a key loss.. it will open the running game up for LSU

I wanted to put Alabama at the top, but because they lost some good players to the NFL I couldn't do it this year.  I'm still debating about SC though because I haven't watched a full game yet. I saw Florida play and they are really good.

La Tech's opponents defensive rankings: 113, 117,37,72,108

Texas A&M's opponents defensive rankings: 56,110, 83, 12

La Tech's defensive ranking: 119/120

Texas A&M's defensive ranking: 45

Neutral field, even though it is in LA. A&M should cover, if the 6 turnovers against Ole Miss, was a fluke. Seem to be getting stronger every game. Don't think Sumlin will let them look past this team. Without this win, they probably don't make a bowl game.

BOL Carter! Liking what I see!

5th group would be Auburn and KY.

Each group you can shake em up and see who wins.

I think South carolina and Alabama will play for the s.e.c. championship. and right now i think south carolina will win it and play for the national championship. Things could change.

Auburn still hasn't named a starting qb for Saturday's game against Ole Miss. All signs point to Ole Miss on the rise and Auburn falling fast. Take the home team. Players are starting to believe in Coach Freeze.

best defense in football is LSU...monty, mingo and minter said they are going to prove it saturday night... mingo is sick of the clowney talk.. he believes he is the best pass rusher in the nation.. Monty said he vows this will be his best game at LSU... Minter is going out of his mind.. if not for cramping up flordia doesnt score ... all of LSU anger is going to come out on sat night... Shaw wont finish the game ..TKO on him in 2nd qt

As strange as that is why could it not be strange for a better team not cover a spread against an inferior oponnent because of looking ahead to LSU. I am betting on La Tech's offense and the fact that it is a huge sandwich game for A&M.I believe A&M is the better team, but I dont believe they cover, If I'M wrong it wont be the first time.

We all have opinions and my opinion is that right now S.Carolina has a better defense.

Opinions =/= stats.

We have stats and defensive ranking for a reason. Good luck with the pick, could go either way.

Alex Hurst may also be sitting this game out and possibly quit the team
