Not much surprise here, as LSU is tabbed front-runner once again
, mirroring Auburn's football preseason expectations, which worked out well for them.
In any case, the coaches have given us our preseason standings in SEC baseball.
1. Georgia (10 first-place votes)
2. Florida (2)
4. South Carolina
1. LSU (10)
2. Mississippi (2)
6. Mississippi State
OVERALL: LSU (10), Georgia (1), Mississippi (1)
If anything, these rankings are almost notable for their lack of creativity.
Yes, South Carolina is in the middle of a rebuilding process, which gives Georgia pretty much run of the East, with the possible exception of Florida and Vanderbilt. Yes, LSU was good enough at the end of last year to earn the respect. But can't we have some controversy? Couldn't somebody vote for Mississippi State to win it all, or something?
Oooh, I know! Let Lane Kiffin vote ...
