ESPN dropped its mid-season All-SEC team Wednesday, and the SEC West absolutely dominates.

Twenty one of the 25 total players listed were from the SEC West, with Tennessee’s Derek Barnett, Vanderbilt’s Zach Cunningham and Florida’s Teez Tabor and Johnny Townsend as the only players from the East mentioned.

But isn’t that the story of the first half? The gap between the SEC West and East has never been wider. The SEC East’s perceived best team, Tennessee, lost both of its games against West programs. Meanwhile, the first place Florida Gators still have to play LSU and Arkansas from the West. Is it a stretch to say the Gators will drop both West games? It’s certainly not.
