Making a bowl wouldn't be a huge surprise for anyone other than Vanderbilt.
Here's how I look at the SEC:
Overrated: Florida (not sold on the QB), LSU (not sold on the new coordinators)
Underrated: Ole Miss (will lead the league in scoring), Kentucky (a 21st Century offense, finally)
Rated just right: Alabama (dominant defense, good enough offense), Georgia (if only they had some receivers), Texas A&M (Aggies are stacked for a run at Bama)
High ceiling if things fall right: Mississippi State (could be Mike Leach's best DEFENSIVE team), Missouri (if defense delivers, look out)
Low floor if things fall wrong: South Carolina (a GA could be starting QB), Auburn (is Harsin SEC material?)
Capable of an upset or two: Tennessee (Heupel offense will score points), Arkansas (Odom's veteran defense is the key)
Then there's Vanderbilt. I admire the new coach's ambitions and energy. Not sure he has any players.
