Alright fellow Volunteers, here is how I see things as of now.
Based on the limited information of one week of college football, the perception of teams of the SEC fall into three tiers:
The gentry class teams include the perennially powdered Alabama and LSU, scandalously underachieving Georgia, and defending conference champion Auburn. Note that since there are three of these teams in the West, at least one of them is going to lose some luster by the end of the season. But remember, the West's upper crust may tear each other down but they'll still have money and you'll still be Appalachian.
Transitioning into this tier are debutantes Texas A&M and Mississippi State.
