The sports media at SEC media days just voted auburn to win the SEC title this year. Without winning the division. Seems kind of strange doesn’t it? Well actually not really. Each individual writer, blogger, radio and tv host that get to vote, list the teams in each division of how they think they will finish. In the West this year, Alabama got less 1st place votes than auburn but apparently auburn was rated lower than Alabama as far as a 2nd, 3rd and so on votes were down the line. Thus giving the nod to Alabama winning the West and auburn winning the SEC.
But,…. the SEC Championship could very well come down to the Iron Bowl and possible National Championship.
NOTE: Since 1992, only 5 teams predicted to win the SEC have, including Alabama last year. The odds for auburn to win, since they are this years prediction winner, are not that good. In over 30 years the media has gotten it right 5 times. I don't think they get it right 2 years in a row.
