The Sports VU's preseason SEC predictions

College football season is finally here...sort of. The always-hectic, yet highly-entertaining SEC Media Days kick off today in Hoover, Ala., and Florida, LSU, Mississippi State and Vanderbilt are up on the first of the three-day event. The Commodores, represented by coach Bobby Johnson and seniors Reshard Langford and George Smith, will speak to the media from 3:10-5:10 p.m. CT.

In the spirit of the week, The Sports VU decided to join the fun and make its own preseason SEC predictions. Is it pointless? Probably, but it's the middle of July and I'm all for anything that helps pass the time until August 28. Also, you'll be able to look back at these in January and commend us on our amazing picks. Or something like that.

You can read Aram's predictions here.

SEC East
1. Florida
2. Georgia
3. Tennessee
4. South Carolina
5. Kentucky
6. Vanderbilt

SEC West
1. Auburn
2. LSU
3. Alabama
4. Mississippi State
5. Ole Miss
6. Arkansas

Offensive Player of the Year:
Knowshon Moreno, RB, Georgia
Defensive Player of the Year: Greg Hardy, DE, Ole Miss
Coach of the Year: Tommy Tuberville, Auburn
Top Newcomer: Jevan Snead, QB, Ole Miss
Breakout Player: Mario Fanin, RB/WR, Auburn
Non-Vanderbilt game you're most looking forward to: LSU at Auburn (Sept. 20)
One guarantee: Vandy will go to its first bow...Thought I was gonna do it, didn't you? In all seriousness, Georgia will lose at least three games.
One bold prediction: Tim Tebow quits football in order to help spread the gospel.

Feel free to leave your own picks in the comments.

I am going to say VU surprises us all and finishes ahead of UK.
