Texas A&M is ranked #11. That’s pretty good! I suspect that most people would be thrilled by this, were it not for a certain other team sneaking in at #10. If only there were a simple way to decide which team is better! Like maybe on a field of play or something? But we will never know, because BUSINESS/footprint/don’t need ‘em why should we help them clearly they are struggling on their own without us!

Anyway, let’s have fun with it! Alabama, Georgia, LSU, and Florida all cracked the top ten. Auburn’s tucked in there at #16. That’s it, only six SEC squads in the top 25. Give us your most molten taeks in the comments, and let’s burn through this horrific month in style.
