Could the SEC have a down year for 05? 1) Auburn - a team that went 12-0 last year and garnered quite a bit of national attention, lost 4 players to the first round of the NFL draft & replaces their entire backfield. 2) Tennessee - a team that returns 16 starters & is getting alot of press this preseason. Is known to flop under pressure. Has had lots of off the field issues. Benefitting from their blowout win against A&M in the Cotton Bowl. Probably didn't deserve a couple of their wins last season. Tough road games for the upcomming year. 3) Florida - a new coach whom the media is in love with. Talent is lacking in a lot of vital areas. Will his system work in the SEC? 4) Georgia - lost all their "big name" players that have been play-makers the past few years. Will have to rely on the unreliable DJ Shockley for QB. 5) South Carolina - great hire of new coach, not much talent there & all young. Then, there's LSU. 6) LSU - a new coach, considered unproven by some. A team returning around 19 starters that underachieved last season & has a fire within them after the Capital Bowl. QB uncertainty but lots of talent with a good bit of experience under JaMarcuss's belt. Receiving corp, rushing attack, OL & DL all ranked in the top of the COUNTRY.
