Poll: SEC's surprise team in 2011
By Chris Low
We get asked all the time who we're picking in the Eastern Division and Western Division races and who our surprise teams are.
Well, now it's your turn.
Vote in our poll for the SEC's surprise team in 2011, and I'll take a look at the results next week.
Auburn was the consummate darkhorse a year ago and was barely even ranked in the Top 25 to start the season. We all know where the Tigers ended up -- 14-0 and national champions.
Who's most likely to come from the back of the pack in 2011 and contend for the SEC title?
The East is wide open again and could certainly produce a few surprises. Did anybody see South Carolina making its first-ever trip to the SEC championship game a year ago? Can Florida regroup in Will Muschamp's first season on the job?
The West is loaded again, and as big a surprise as Auburn was last season, the Tigers would be an even bigger surprise in 2011 if they were to repeat.
So get cranking on your homework and tell us who the SEC's surprise team will be next season.
