With SEC Media Days wrapping up, the media choices for the preseason All-SEC team and the conference order of finish came in. The finish picks were what have been the general conventional wisdom of the offseason, with LSU picked third in the Western Division behind Alabama and Auburn:

EASTERN DIVISION

Georgia (138) - 1572
Florida (96) - 1526
Tennessee (3) - 998
South Carolina (5) - 897
Kentucky -869
Vanderbilt - 554
Missouri - 388

WESTERN DIVISION

Alabama (225) - 1683
Auburn (13) - 1329
LSU (4) - 1262
Arkansas (1) - 796
Texas A&M - 722
Mississippi State - 633
Ole Miss - 379

SEC CHAMPION

Alabama - 217
Auburn - 11
Georgia - 6
LSU - 3
Florida - 3
South Carolina - 1
Vanderbilt - 1
Arkansas - 1

Media aren’t exactly good at this, but that’s never stopped them before, has it? I’ll have whatever that Vandy writer is having.

As for the all-conference selections, LSU ended up with seven overall and two first-team selections — Derrius Guice and Arden Key.
