Last call for preseason accolades!

While there was no SEC Media Days to enjoy this off-season, there was still the preseason media projections and All-SEC teams announced on Wednesday afternoon.

Florida was picked to win the East division, and Alabama in the West — with the Crimson Tide predicted to be the league champion (shocker)!

And to no one’s surprise heading into Eli Drinwitz’s debut season, the Missouri Tigers were picked to finish sixth place in the SEC East, collecting a total of 224 points — good for 11th most in the league.

Mizzou did have a good representation of players on the All-SEC team, as they landed four players on there — and it is defense heavy. Missouri’s defense had a player on each team with Nick Bolton (first), Kobie Whiteside (second), and Tyree Gillespie (third). Meanwhile, Larry Rountree III was the only Mizzou offensive player found on the list — appearing on the third team.

Perhaps, maybe Ennis Rakestraw was snubbed? Kidding of course, but we can officially let the Rakestraw hype begin!

Missouri has also seen their latest opt-outs of the season.

This means the scholarship total for the season is down to 67 players with five total opt-outs, and that offensive line depth is getting thinner and thinner.

Onto the game week links!
