Most of the SDS staff picks Florida to win the East, which, in and of itself, is nothing special, but I have to take note of two takes.
First, their Florida guy goes with Georgia to win the Cocktail Party, because “… I won’t pick Kirby Smart to lose that game until it happens, and the road to Atlanta in the East goes through Jacksonville.”
Second, check out this guy’s “here we are now, entertain us” rationale for picking Florida:
I sound like a broken record, but I always root for the best story. In the East, that means Florida finally beating Georgia and returning to Atlanta.
It’s honest, like I said, but I do not think best story means what he thinks it means.
