Kirk Herbstreit does not like what he has seen out of the SEC so far this year.
There was LSU’s loss to an unranked Wisconsin team. Mississippi State dropped a game to South Alabama. Tennessee struggled against App State and Ohio. And Georgia only beat FCS-foe Nicholls by two points.
While it is still early in the season, Herbstreit tweeted that the conference isn’t up to its usual standard of excellence.
After 3 weeks..outside of Bama, A&M, Arkansas, and maybe Ole Miss the SEC looks down big time by their own standards.

Alabama currently sits atop both the AP and Coaches poll. Texas A&M and Arkansas both picked up impressive nonconference victories. Ole Miss’ two losses have came against Florida State and Alabama, but the Rebels blew three touchdown leads in both of those games. Herbstreit did have the Crimson Tide in his top-5 as well.
That’s a strong stance to take from Herbstreit, especially since he will be headed back to SEC country this weekend, as College Gameday will be in Knoxville for the Tennessee-Florida game.
