What they're saying about the SEC after Week 11
Week 11 was a rough one for several ranked teams, but the SEC’s results sparked plenty of commentary, too.
Primarily: Alabama is still really, really good.
Here is a sample of what the rest of the country is saying about the best conference in America after the Week 11 performances.

Mississippi State @ Alabama
Alabama now leads the SEC in total offense (492.2 ypg) and total defense (259.5). The SEC hasn't had a team lead league in both since 2006.

Urban Meyer almost walked away from the podium to go make a phone call when a reporter told him Bama used Trent Richardson on its scout team

How dominant is #Bama? Last 17 games in SEC: Alabama is 17-0. Tennessee has the next best record at 13-4 followed by Arkansas at 12-5.

Bama should occupy top 4 spots in college fb.

South Carolina at Florida
#Gators finish 5-0 at Swamp (abbreviated schedule), marking first unbeaten season at home since 2012
— Scott Carter (@GatorsScott) November 12, 2016
LSU opens as a 12-point favorite at home over Florida. Tennessee needs Gators to lose this game in order to win the East
— SEC Mike (@MichaelWBratton) November 13, 2016
#Gators did not allow more than 14 points at home this year.
That hasn't happened since 1964 — when Florida allowed 98 points total.

Kentucky at Tennessee
— Tennessee Stats (@Vol_Stats) November 13, 2016
Same. Old. Kentucky.
— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) November 12, 2016
Lamar Jackson is going to rush for 12 miles against Kentucky.
— Not Jerry Tipton (@NotJerryTipton) November 12, 2016
That’s 21,120 yards for those of you not near a calculator. That would set an NCAA single-game record …
Auburn at Georgia
— Georgia Football (@FootballUGA) November 13, 2016
Alabama, Troy, Auburn, Jacksonville State and North Alabama are a combined 42-6 this year.
Three of those losses belong to Auburn.
— Ryan McCollough (@RyanLMcCollough) November 14, 2016
Apparently Auburn had injuries so it "should have won"…
Remember way back in 2015 when UGA went to Auburn without Nick Chubb? Still won.

i still love my team, and i'm grateful everyday I came to AUBURN! WAR DAMN EAGLE

Vanderbilt at Missouri
Fun facts ahead of Barry Odom's press conference at 3:
-Mizzou leads UT series 3-1
-Mizzou is 2-0 in Knoxville
-UT won last year 19-8
— Alec Lewis (@alec_lewis) November 14, 2016
Vanderbilt had 424 yards of offense going into the 4th Q. I don't think anything about the offense other than a few mistakes was a problem.
— Jesse Johnson (@JWJohnsonVU247) November 13, 2016
#Mizzou is in victory formation. Tigers will beat Vanderbilt 26-17.

As much as we make fun of the defenses at Cal, Texas Tech and Oregon, Arkansas now owns the nation's dead-last rushing D. Ouch.

Ole Miss at Texas A&M
In his first career start, Shea Patterson leads Ole Miss to a come from behind 29-28 victory over Texas A&M. Unbelievable finish. pic.twitter.com/gxmbd7Oc7F

Tonight is why you play Shea Patterson. Look around. Excitement. Momentum. Ole Miss needed a shot in the arm.
That shot is Shea Patterson.
