Gators picked to finish fifth in East

The media members at SEC Media Days aren’t high on the Gators this year.

Florida was picked to finish fifth in the SEC East in the polls results that were released on Thursday. The media picked Georgia to win the SEC East, followed by Tennessee, Missouri, South Carolina, Florida, Kentucky and Vanderbilt. One media member picked Florida to win the SEC East and the SEC Championship.

In the West, the media picked Alabama to win the division but Auburn got the most votes to win the SEC Championship of any team in the conference. It’s the first time in the 23-year history of the poll that a team was picked to win the conference title without being picked to win its division.

Florida’s one vote to win the SEC Championship means it tied for ninth overall in the league.

The Gators open fall camp on August 6.
