Average Ranking for the SEC West: 38
Average Ranking for the SEC East: 74

***This is a huge problem that never seems to get any better. How long will we continue on with this imbalance?

This is why I think LSU wins this weekend. LSU is not a terrible team. The loss to Troy is inexplicable, and maybe it causes this team and fans to give up and the program spirals out of control towards 0-8 in SEC play.

But at this point in the season, LSU is statistically a much better team than Florida.

Florida was outplayed by Tennessee.... the same Vols team that lost to Georgia by 41 and nearly lost to UMass. Florida was outplayed by Kentucky.... the same Kentucky team that barely held on to beat Eastern Michigan.

The ball has bounced Florida's way to help the Gators avoid a couple of additional losses, but that doesn't mean they are much better than LSU. I think LSU goes into Gainesville and wins on Saturday.

It's stunning that there are 8 teams in the conference that are below us on any ranking.

For reference, if I read the link properly, Troy is 65.

Yep - the 2nd best team in the SEC East, the Troy Trojans.

And there was a thread yesterday asking if this year being a shite show meant the east has caught up with the west

No one claimed they ever did. But the Gators were outplayed... until the hail mary to end the game, Tennessee had outgained Florida offensively with 442 total yards to just 317 for Florida.

Florida got lucky at the end and executed a hail mary to win the game. Good for Florida. But the point of all this is that you needed a 63-yard hail mary at the end of regulatio to beat a Tennessee team that 1) Nearly lost to UMass... 2) Gave up 655 yards to Georgia Tech... 3) Lost to Georgia 41-0.

Tennessee is not a good team. No where close to one. And Florida nearly lost to them. That's the point.

The ball has bounced Florida's way more often than not. The ball did not bounce LSU's way on Saturday against Troy. In reality, I'm not sure there is much difference between the two. And if I had to guess who will win Saturday, I'd probably choose LSU. We'll see.
