Is Florida spearheading the rise of the SEC East? Maybe. I think this is slightly overblown and/or premature, though, because the No. 2 or 3 team in the East (which is where I’d have Florida right now before any game against Georgia) knocking off what look like the No. 3 and No. 4 teams in the West isn’t some amazing accomplishment, nor reflective on the rest of the division. Florida’s on the rise; the jury’s out on the East. I’ll riff on something else from this later. (Andy Staples, Sports Illustrated)
