MSU had a close loss to ND on the road and had 3-4 questionable PI calls go against them before going on to dominate their conference winning every game by 10+.
Auburn was dominated at home by a bi-polar LSU team and had 5 close wins, two of which qualify as miracle wins.
Id say MSU belongs in...

Bama fans in this thread are hilarious re: recruiting.
Tough to say FSU lacks elite talent when their starting heisman candidate QB was #1 in the country as a recruit at his position and grew up 25 miles from Bryant-Denny.

LSU is a very good team, but any discussion about whether they are #1 in the SEC has to be tabled until they play UGA.
TCU falling apart against a mediocre Texas Tech team means we don't have enough to evaluate where LSU really is. Your offense is clearly better than last year, but the defense is...

Sims may "understand" the offense better, my concern with him is I've never seen him function within the offense in a way that would make he think he actually knows how to play the position.
He tucks way too fast, is inaccurate and erratic in terms of decision making every time I've seen him and ...

If the reports of Sims throwing 3 picks are true and Del Rio is getting the 3rd string snaps its hard to be very excited about the future at QB right now.

In defense of Depriest he was dinged up most of the year. Combine better conditioning because he's able to practice and workout with starting at 100% and I think you'll see a completely different player.
