On the surface, nothing really shocking: Alabama to win the West and South Carolina to win the East… Georgia second in the East.
But beneath that surface, note that there isn’t a single Gamecock on defense who makes first or second team SEC. (Even Georgia has one.) With Shaw and Clowney both gone, and South Carolina going to a 3-4 because of a lack of depth on the d-line, that’s an interesting call.
It sounds like both teams are perceived as being flawed. But let’s remember that Georgia and South Carolina are widely perceived as being top ten preseason teams. So one of these narratives is likely to give as the season progresses.
