SEC Media Days is always a spectacle, and Day 3 got started with a bang, for all the wrong reasons.

The Ole Miss Rebels—yes, the same Ole Miss Rebels that went 2-10 last season, dismissed their best player Nickolas Brassell this offseason and have road games against Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas and LSU—received first place votes in the SEC Media predicted order of finish.

Not only did the Rebels receive one vote to win the SEC West, which is remarkably unrealistic in and of itself, but they received a vote to win the entire SEC.

All of it.

This is the same Ole Miss team that has never represented the SEC West in the SEC Championship Game, the same Ole Miss team that is going through a coaching change and the same Ole Miss team that has been searching for a starting quarterback since Jevan Snead left.

Somebody needs to have their voting privileges revoked.

Here is the SEC Media's predicted order of finish. First-place votes are in parenthesis.

  • Georgia - 1,433 (132)
  • South Carolina - 1,358 (72)

  • Texas A&M - 653
  • Mississippi State - 554
  • Ole Miss - 262 (1)
