Georgia's Swift and Thomas named first team All-SEC

The Crimson Tide had 203 votes to win the SEC overall.

The Tigers, coming off an 8-5 campaign and facing questions at quarterback, were picked behind Alabama (1,813 points), LSU (1,493) and Texas A&M (1,268) in their own division.

However, some of the teams that did receive votes were suspect, as Tennessee, Mississippi State, Auburn, and SC all received votes to win the SEC Championship, while Texas A&M did not.

The Gamecocks again face a hard schedule, with Alabama as a crossover opponent and seven opponents that won nine or more games last season.

The selection should come as little surprise - it certainly didn't to Georgia writer Seth Emerson - as the Bulldogs have won the SEC East title twice in a row and by a two-game margin both times.

'CS gas attack' on London Underground train at Oxford Circus
Police have started a manhunt after a cannister of tear gas was thrown onto a packed Tube train in London today. CS gas is more commonly known a tear gas and can cause severe eye and respiratory pain.

The Gamecocks were picked to finish fourth in the SEC East by the conference's media.

Last season, the SEC media poll had Auburn primed to finish second in the West, and nine players were selected to preseason All-SEC teams.

Alabama has been the dominant force in the SEC West for ages now, and that probably won't be changing anytime soon barring some major hiccups.
