Tuesday Power Polls

Today will start the second edition of the weekly SECJams tradition of the Power Polls. We will give you the power rankings of whatever we feel like that week. Basketball during Basketball season, football during football, we might even rank the hotness of SEC girls in the crowd. This weekly poll will be the talk of your friends. The second edition of the power poll will be SEC men's basketball teams from top to bottom.

Week 2 SEC Men’s Basketball

1. Kentucky (11-1) - No changes at the top. The Wildcats handled their business last week with two wins over two cupcakes Loyola (MD) and Samford. There might be some changes next week for the Wildcats as the play number four ranked Louisville on December 31, 2011. (Previous Week #1)

2. Florida (10-2) – The Gators still hold on to the number two spot with a win over in-state rival Florida State last week.  (Previous Week #2)

3. Mississippi State (12-1)- The Bulldogs control their own destiny with a matchup with number seven Baylor on December 28, 2011. A win against the Bears could leap the bulldogs into the number one spot in next week’s polls. (Previous Week #3)

4. LSU (9-3) - The Tigers move up one spot to number 4. They are on a six game winning streak and playing hard for Coach Johnson. (Previous Week #5)

5. Arkansas (8-3) - The Arkansas Razorbacks are the biggest movers towards the top moving up three spots to number five. They are on a three game winning streak, and will be tested this week by UNC-Charlotte on December 28, 2011. (Previous Week #8)  

6. Alabama (9-3) - The Crimson Tide holds steady at the number six spot with a big win over Oklahoma State last week. The Tide will not be tested this week and should hold steady.  (Previous Week #6)

7. Auburn (8-3) - The Auburn Tigers finally got challenged on their trip to Hawaii and are limping home with two loses in three games. The Tigers should get back on a winning streak with a cupcake game this week. (Previous Week #4)

8. Vanderbilt (8-4 ) - The Commodores have won two in a row, but will be tested again this week against Marquette who has been playing every team in the SEC thus far. The Commodores could possibly gain ground in the polls with a win over the Golden Eagles.  (Previous Week #9)

9. Ole Miss (9-3) - The Rebels have lost two straight and might be the worst team in the SEC. They have yet to be really tested and coming off two straight losses I would predict a third against the Dayton Flyers on December 30, 2011. (Previous Week #7)

10. Georgia (7-5) - The Bulldogs have won three in a row and I would expect two more this week over Winthrop and Delaware State.(Previous Week #11)

11. Tennessee (5-6) - The Tennessee Volunteers gained a spot this week with two wins the team desperately needed, and a huge recruiting success with the addition of Jarnell Stokes. If Stokes is as good as advertised look for the Vols to gain ground in the polls come January. (Previous Week #12)

12. South Carolina (5-6) - The Gamecocks drop two spots to last place in week two. They had a win over a cupcake team last week, and have games against two more this week. It is hard to rank the gamecocks any higher based on the weak schedule. (Previous Week #10)
