Bit of a surprise

When the results of the preseason media poll were released today at SEC Media Days, it was a bit of a surprise.

Alabama was picked first, LSU was picked second and Ole Miss was picked third in the West.

That Alabama was picked first isn't that surprising to me. No, it's not because of the back-to-back recruiting classes. It's because every Bubba Gump with a pen and a notebook is at SEC Media Days voting for the home state schools.

You could probably look it up, but I'd be willing to bet that Alabama and Auburn have fared better than any other teams in the preseason football polls at SEC Media Days.

Anyway, I was a little bit surprised that LSU was picked second. It's not that I don't think LSU has the talent to contend in the West. But Ole Miss has an experienced team with a proven quarterback returning.

I guess there are some that won't believe in the Rebels until they actually get to Atlanta.

LSU, meanwhile, could finish anywhere from first to third in the West, in my opinion. And that is exactly what makes this one of the more intriguing LSU seasons in recent years.

An Ark. fan said that every time Houston Nutt had a preseason top 10 team, the season was mediocre. We will see if that carries over to Ole Miss.
