SEC Media Days has come to a close and with it come the predictions. The press holds a straw poll at the end of the week of how they think the SEC will finish. We here at RBR do the same. With help from Erik, Brent, Ole Whistlebritches, DoctorWhosOnFirst, Josh, and CB969, we have compiled our picks.
NATIONAL MEDIA PICKS
The national media seems a little more rosy on UGA and might bit less on Alabama than we are. One person each from the press picked Tennessee and Kentucky to win the East. Somehow, Mizzou got a vote to win the SEC Championship without winning the East. There are going to be some serious refunds coming the fans’ ways.
EASTERN DIVISION (1st Place votes in parenthesis)
- Georgia (271) 1977
- South Carolina (8) 1535
- Florida (4) 1441
- Missouri 1057

- Alabama 193
- Georgia 69
- Auburn 14
- South Carolina 4
- Florida 2
- Mississippi State 1
- Missouri 1
The only unanimous selections by your brave RBR staff are Alabama winning the West and Vandy in the East basement. In between, we are all over the place.

I am sure I don’t have to tell you that the six of us all pick Alabama to win the SEC Championship.
What do you think? Let us know your order of finish in comments and chastised the comments of others, cuz that’s what the internet is for, right?
Will UGA win the SEC East?
This poll is closed
Yes, but it’ll be close.
No, lost too many key players/letdown year.
