1. LSU Tigers
The Tigers earned their SEC championships the hard way, with a tight series win in Columbia against the number two team. You can't begrudge them their due at this point.
The Gamecocks came up just short of the SEC Championship, but they win the East after a strong second half to the season.
The Gators have a strong case for number two, but I'm giving it to South Carolina due to Carolina's stronger recent play.
Simply not playing their best baseball of the season heading into the conference tournament. I'm beginning to smell a flame out.
Unlike Kentucky (who they swept), the Bulldogs are red hot heading into the SECT. After being swept by South Carolina back in early April, the Bulldogs have won every series except for Florida. They capped it off this past weekend with a series-defining sweep against Kentucky.
After struggling for a couple of weeks, perhaps a sweep against lowly Tennessee was what the Hogs needed to regain their confidence.
Another blistering hot team, the Commodores struggled throughout the early season before finally beginning to play up to their lofty preseason expectations in recent weeks. They swept a solid Ole Miss team over the weekend.
Like Kentucky, the Rebels are limping into the SECT.
Series loss to Alabama? Me thinks this may be David Perno's last hurrah in Athens.
10. Auburn Tigers
Got rocked in first two games against the Gators, but then did South Carolina a huge favor by winning game three and keeping the Gators from the SEC East Title.
Thankfully, the season is over for these guys. At least they ended on a high note.
These guys can't say the same.
