I guess word broke of this yesterday, but this morning is the first I've seen of it. Phil Steele picked Auburn to finish last in the SEC West, and yes, that means behind everyone else.
Steele came closer than anyone did to nailing Auburn last year, as he had them a close second in the division behind Alabama and said his main set of power rankings had the Tigers going 11-0 before the Iron Bowl. He does get some credit for that. It also should go without saying that Russell Wilson ending up in Opelika would change a lot of things and get Steele off the hook for this one.
And while I do see the Plainsmen falling off a bit from last year, I can't see them hitting rock bottom. Do you?
