SEC Basketball Power Poll Ballot - Post Week 2 (through January 15th, 2012)

New, 8 comments
Anchor of Gold Ballot /// Results at Garnet and Black Attack on Wednesday-ish

Since the table doesn't fit on the main page, here are the rankings with commentary. The full table after the jump.

  1. Kentucky Wildcats - Not getting knocked off their perch until they lose in conference
  2. Vanderbilt Commodores - A completely different team now that they’re getting Ezeli back to full strength. Chance to secure #2 spot this week.
  3. Mississippi St. Bulldogs - The transfer Moultrie is making a major impact for the Bulldogs. We’ll learn more about them this week.
  4. Florida Gators - The Gators were stunned by Tennessee on the road, a costly slip up this early.
  5. Alabama Crimson Tide - Is Bama as good as their KenPom ranking? We’ll find out this week.
  6. Tennessee Volunteers - If I’m giving VU some slack for losing without Ezeli, I’m giving UT some slack for just adding Stokes. They get the chance to earn it for keeps this week.
  7. Arkansas Razorbacks - Arkansas takes the 7th spot thanks to their victory over LSU this past weekend.
  8. LSU Tigers - It’s interesting to see how quickly the luster of that "surprise" team moniker evaporated.
  9. Mississippi Rebels - Quick math formula: Best player dismissed (Dundrecous Nelson, the marjuana) =/= Dubyas. Alternative: if Dundrecous Nelson hadn’t been dismissed, Ole Miss would be much higher
  10. Auburn Tigers - If the light preconference schedule doesn’t come back to bite them, I could see Auburn finishing the season much higher.
  11. Georgia Bulldogs - After the results against Bama and Florida, I thought the Bulldogs showed a lot more heart against Vandy. If Fox can get that effort from them consistently, the Bulldogs will move up. Kentavious is a player.
  12. South Carolina Gamecocks - The Gamecocks need a little more time for Bruce Ellington to gel. Darrin Horn hopes it doesn’t happen too late.
