This week's SEC rankings were voted upon by four members of the College and Magnolia baseball staff. Team listings include overall and SEC records, voting point totals and first place votes. Commentary by Dusty Miller, Brett Mixon and Chris Fuhrmeister.
1. Florida 22-2/5-1, 48 points (4 first-place votes) -- The clear leader of the SEC. Took two of three at South Carolina.
2. Arkansas 22-3/5-1, 43 -- Picked up a nice road-series win at Mississippi State.
3. Kentucky 24-1/5-1, 41 -- The 'Cats finally lost, but they still won the series at Tennessee.
4. South Carolina 17-7/1-5, 35 -- Tough start to SEC play for the Gamecocks, but they should turn it around. No shame in losing to Florida -- even at home.
5. Auburn 15-9/4-2, 31 -- Played solid baseball all around in a series win over No. 8 LSU. It was the Tigers' second straight series win over a top 20 team.
6. LSU 18-6/3-3, 26 -- The Bayou Bengals are having trouble scoring runs in SEC action, and it resulted in their third straight series loss at Auburn.
7. Georgia 17-8/3-3, 24 -- The Dawgs surprised many by losing a series to previously hapless Vanderbilt.
8. Ole Miss 17-7/3-3, 23 -- Bounced back nicely with a series win at 'Bama. Still, late-game situations continue to be a problem.
9. Mississippi State 16-9/2-4, 15 -- Lost another series at home, this time to a very good Arkansas team.
10. Vanderbilt 9-15/2-4, 13 -- The 'Dores showed some signs of life by picking up the series win over Georgia. Could this be the spark to turn Vandy around?
11. Tennessee 13-10/2-4, 9 -- Handed Kentucky its first loss of the year, but the Vols still dropped the series.
12. Alabama 9-15/1-5, 4 -- The Crimson Tide are pretty young. That youth is leading to some pretty bad baseball.
