While the 2011 college football season may be three to four months away, the time is upon the players and coaches to begin anew and rebuild. The SEC will especially face one of the biggest challenges of all, losing key playmakers such as Cam Newton and A.J. Green to the NFL. Despite this, the SEC remains one of the most favored and talented conferences in all of college football.
Both sides of the SEC are wide open this year. In the East, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida will be the triple threats to contend with, and South Carolina is an early favorite to win the East. In the West, there are significant power struggles between Auburn, Arkansas and LSU, with none having any early edges or advantages at this point.
The 2011 season will certainly be an interesting one, as Florida and Georgia aren't the teams they used to be, and the West is loaded with a three-way battle for the crown. Here are my week-to-week predictions for the 2011 SEC college football season.
