2009 SEC predictions

OK, so I started doing this a few weeks ago with the hopes of producing scores and recaps of every SEC game this season. I got through Alabama, Arkansas and Auburn before I got lazy and let other things get in the way of finishing it. I know I wouldn't get nine of these done in the next four days (before the South Carolina vs. North Carolina State game on Thursday night), so here are all of the SEC games, with scores (no recaps). SEC standings and bowl predictions after the scores. Any criticism or praise is more than welcome in the comments section.

The Sugar Bowl picking Bama over LSU could be a pretty tough call.

I think Alabama will beat VT. Their best running back is injured and I just don't see VT winning this game. They won the ACC last year and I'm not convinced that translates to a top 10 team this year. (I'd put them about 15-18 if I ever get around to a top 25 of my own.)

I hope your predictions about the Lamecocks are accurate. But I wouldn't be suprised if they win 2 games or 9.

I have no idea what to expect from Auburn, but I suppose .500 is a safe bet.

For what its worth with my limited SEC knowledge I like your predictions.

Reasoning for UAT over LSU in the Sugar Bowl: Both teams will have two losses, Bama will have lost to LSU in the regular season, but LSU will have lost in the SECCG to Florida in their most recent game, moving them down in the rankings. Although, with the way I've picked it, LSU would have two losses both be to the Florida Monstars, er...Gators. Hmm.

I think Spurrier loses the team this year and resigns, and I think that Auburn could win any of the games on the schedule and just as easily could lose any of the games on the schedule (except Furman).
