It must not matter that he's losing one of those players of a lifetime, defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, and a few others on defense, because in the AL.com/Birmingham News' 68th annual Spring SEC Football Report, his Gamecocks and Nick Saban's Alabama Crimson Tide are the teams to beat.

Good article. I think the west will come down to the iron bowl again. I'd love to play Alabama though. It'd be a great game

Kiss of death. The picks are always screwy. Or is that the media selections?I know one of them hasnt been correct since the split in 92.

In 2013 the SEC Sports Information Directors picked South Carolina to finish 2nd in the East. Although clearly wrong on their 1st place pick, there was no kiss of death for us.

Media has never correctly picked the SECCG. There may have been one team they got right but it's never been both

Its as good a pick as any. I think it will take FL a few years to get back, Y'all are 3-1 vs. UGA the last four years, and Mizz will fizz. Bama will be playing with an attitude because of last year's finish.

Everything is a cycle in college football. Florida and Tennessee will be back one day. While us or UGA may fall off. It's a big cycle; teams fall and come back time after time. Look at Alabama...

Safe pick

We already play Allbarn so if we went to Atlanta and faced Bama it wouldn't break my heart one bit.

Re: Cocks & Bama Picked for SEC Championship
 
Not sure why Allbarn is so world beating that we are scared of them as a fanbase. I know how tough it is to when @ Jordanhairy and that we have not traditionally fared well against the wareaglers. HOWEVER we have also not won an SEC or National title in order to do that we have to do the never achieved things that most of our fans seem to doubt we can. Allbarn was very lucky last year and yes they are a great football team but they are beatable.:wink:

I think the important thing to take away here is that the rest of the schools in the SEC think we are going to be pretty good. Definitely in the upper half of the conference. Otherwise its fairly meaningless. At this point in the year, nobody saw Auburn and Missouri being as successful as they ended up being. I think Auburn was picked last in a lot of pre-season polls.

I want to know which nutters put A&M 3rd, Vandy 7th, and Auburn 9th.

which means now we won't

Looks like a safe bet to me. Put it btw USC & Georgia. QB over all. I think UGA has better skill players on O, but I'm not at all sold on Hutson Mason. Dylan Thompson can get the job done. I believe that.

Need to watch more of last years games to get a feel for the Defenses.

I don't feel the least bit sorry for them. Their basketball program makes up for their horrible football program.

This would be AWESOME.

I'm not sure if Florida fans would put up with a 4th place finish.

Edit: Geez. Florida has a tough schedule. Their two West opponents are LSU and Bama and they still have to play FSU out of conference. 7-5 type of season for them at best
