SEC Coaches Pick Florida, Arkansas as Division Winners

Karsten Whitson and the Gators are the SEC coaches' pick to win the league.

The preseason SEC coaches' baseball standings dropped today, and they've predicted Florida and Arkansas to take the two divisions. Last year Florida tied for the East crown in a three-way tie with South Carolina and Vanderbilt, while Arkansas took the West with a one-game lead over a three-team logjam in second. Florida was picked to repeat as conference champs in a separate vote from the divisional standings, a sentiment that matches the national sentiment that has the Gators No. 1 in the Coaches' Poll.

Here are the standings with the point totals for each team. Teams got six points for first place votes, five for second place votes, and so on.

EAST

1. Florida (66 points)

2. South Carolina (56)

3. Georgia (42)

4. Vanderbilt (40)

5. Kentucky (25)

6. Tennessee (18)

WEST

1. Arkansas (64)

2. LSU (58)

3. Alabama (38)

4. Ole Miss (34)

5. Mississippi State (33)

6. Auburn (20)

Florida's 66 points make it the unanimous pick in the East division, as coaches couldn't vote for their own teams. Arkansas came two points short of being the unanimous West pick, and based on how the rest of the voting went, it's probably safe to assume that LSU got the two first place votes the Hogs didn't get.
