And, it wasn't uncommon for teams like Florida, Georgia, and Arkansas to make an appearance either.
This is a very weak season for the SEC due to graduations, defections, injuries, recruiting misses or coaching issues (in Tennessee's case, all of the above).
Next season, I think we will see a more typical SEC representation in the Top 25. Tennessee, TAMU and UK should rejoin MSU and SC as top 25 staples.
