Maybe the SEC Western Division should change its name to Mufasa. Given the historic feat of putting four teams in the top 5 ranking at the same time, I don’t think there would be much of a difference with that name change.
With the latest AP Top 25 poll, the SEC has Mississippi State at #1 followed by #3 Ole Miss, #4 Alabama, and #5 Auburn. I’m sure Florida State feels quite humble to be surrounded by greatness like that. At the same time, they’ll have to deal with the SEC West if they want to try to repeat as national champs.
There have been 30 times that a conference has put three teams in the top 5 ranking. Out of those 30 times, the SEC has done it 16 times alone. Now, the SEC has one-upped things by putting 4 teams in the top 5. If it’s not bad enough to have 4 in the top 5, they all come from within one division of the SEC.
Things will get undoubtedly get tossed around over the next few weeks as Mississippi State still has to play at Alabama and Ole Miss. Auburn has to travel to both #9 Georgia and #4 Alabama. Ole Miss has Auburn at home before playing Mississippi State at the end of the year. Alabama has both Mississippi State and Auburn coming to Tuscaloosa.
Looking towards the last month and a half of college football, I have two quotes that come to mind.
The first one involves one of my favorite actors in what I though was one of his best roles ever.
The second one is probably one of the best sh*t talking men to ever walk the Earth.
So, by the time we reach the end of November, we’ll know the man because he would have beat the man while dancing with the devil in the pale moonlight. WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!
