Alright, you know how this works. The media at SEC Media Days made their picks and the fine folks at RollBamaRoll.com makes theirs. Without further ado:

SURPRISED?

I am sure none of you are surprised with the unanimous selection of Alabama to win the West. You don’t have to be a Gump to make that choice. The East choice, however, was a near unanimous pick for Georgia. Personally, I was tempted to pick Florida because UGA just doesn’t look that strong. But the Gators lost SOOO many players from their defense and have yet to settle on a QB.

RUNNER-UPS

South Carolina is one to watch this year. QB Jake Bentley looks good and the defense will be improved. We have them third in the East.

Maybe it is the good ol’ fashioned hate, but there is not too much faith in the Vols around these parts as they land #4 on our poll.

The staff was torn between two Bama rivals as to who would finish second in the West. LSU and Auburn tied for the number two spot.

50 DAYS!
