Let’s wildly predict this year’s outcomes, totally devoid of facts.

NCAA Football: SEC Media Days
When you’ve got WAR EAGLE in Atlanta.
Adam Hagy-USA TODAY Sports

It seems to roll around sooner every year. We’re not talking about your parents’ birthdays or Thanksgiving or whatever, either. We’re talking about BASELESS SEC FOOTBALL PREDICTIONS SEASON, and this year the hunting is bountiful. Not least because the assembled SEC media voted and they picked Tennessee to win it all in Atlanta this year.

Just kidding, they picked ‘Bama. Again.

#ROLLTIDE received 212 more first place votes than the next program down on the SEC West list, Auburn, which received an impressive 13 votes. Good job, Auburn. LSU made out with four first place votes, and Arkansas took one. Who knew BERT was a voting member of the SEC media? Or is it one HOOTIE DALE NUTT?

Over in the junior varsity East division, Georgia racked up enough votes to be picked to win, though not by as daunting a margin as the Tide, beating out second place Florida, 138-96. Tennessee and South Carolina earned three and five first-place votes, respectively, but the Vols finished third in the voting in total points. Some asshole threw in a single first-place vote for Vanderbilt.

No member of Ole Miss’ offensive corps was voted to a first team preseason all-conference list, though Greg Little and the newly revamped Javon Patterson made the third team list on that side of the ball. Marquis Haynes made the first team list on defense, and Gary Wunderlich was voted to the third team all-conference specialists list.

Hugh Freeze was voted most likely to go to NCAA jail.

You can read the full all-conference breakdowns and voting predictions here. Now let’s go scream at each other on Twitter.
