Cracks me up how the 6th place team in the SEC is the consensus #1 in polls. Makes you really wonder about the value of the polls.

The teams LSU has beaten thus far is a list of the favorites in Omaha. SEC stacked, even more so than usual I am afraid.

Auburn 5-10 tied for 11th
Miss St 5-10 tied for 11th
Alabama 6-9 8th
