SEC Media Days are officially done, meaning it’s just about time to get down to business in the 2019 football season. But before we do, let’s take our annual look at how the votes shook out from the SEC Media projections.

Tennessee is slated to finish 5th in the SEC East, projected to finish above both Vanderbilt and Kentucky. The Georgia Bulldogs were the media’s pick to take the East crown yet again.

Unsurprisingly, Alabama was the pick to win the West, followed by LSU and Texas A&M.

Tennessee is looking to get out of the SEC East cellar, where they’ve stayed for the last two seasons.

Here are the full results from the media poll. Also — yes, one media member picked Tennessee to win the SEC. Yes, the entire thing.
