Just having some coffee and I was just watching the preview on ESPN College Game day.....they go through the conference and Carolina is only mentioned in last statement...."the media picked USC to win the east but these guys think differently"

USC needs to print this stuff up and put it above the lockers and above the door

Corso - "Florida wins the East"

Desmond , Kirk, and Chris chime in and all say Georgia.

Then follow with "sorry south carolina fans we know the media picked you guys"

Those guys go where the money is. If he could Herbie would pick Ohio State to win the SEC. He knows what he's talking about when it comes to x's and o's but those guys are far from biased when they pick teams.

Yea these picks mean nothing,they like stirring up the pot. Who would've chosen Mizzou or Auburn last year...

Let those teams get the pressure from the four letter which will get fan expectations extremely high.

The SEC network is all about promoting underdogs and unpicked teams in the race. They talk about Vanderbilt all the time, and they all say Florida is going to give the entire SEC a run for their money. It's all talk to make the season sound more exciting. It'll all change once talking season ends.

Just don't pay attention to the SEC network, they won't promote us until we beat A&M and Georgia. Just wait till the 28th guys.... 5 days

Were gonna have to earn our respect like we do every year. USC is never a "sexy" pick for the media.

This wasn't the SEC network it was ESPN college GameDay

Let me sum up my reaction in three words...

I

The media picked USC to win the East. I've never understood why people get upset with anybody making a prediction. Just makes no sense, they'll either be right or wrong & it has absolutely no bearing on reality. It just sounds childlike. These guys aren't trying to stir anything, they're giving their honest opinion. Put yourself in that position, would you go on national TV & intentionally make a pick you didn't believe in? Because one of two things will happen. (1) they'll be wrong & the fans of the winning school will throw it in their face repeatedly or (2) They'll be right & the silence will be deafening.

The writers picking USC to win the East means not one iota, same as Herby picking UGA. Votes don't count, only the scoreboard.

No surprises here.

Those guys are going with the safe, historical picks. We've won the SEC East one time and then got blown out in the SECCG. They aren't going to look at us as legitimate until we're more competitive on that bigger stage.

It's all the same. It's all promoting teams who have a small, small shot. Only a fool cares what ESPN and SEC "analysts" say.
You know I said analysts with quotes because they're told to do this. Heavily promote Clemson, Georgia, Vanderbilt. Dark, dark horses.
