The SEC media poll was released today, and we were predicted to finish 9th (basically right where we finished last year, with newcomers Texas A&M and Missouri occupying spots near the top and bottom of the conference respectively). Jen George was voted 1st team All-SEC.

Online publication College Sports Madness is more optimistic, giving us a #22 national ranking, 5th in the SEC. See their Gator preseason preview here: http://www.collegesportsmadness.com/article/5048
I would probably split the difference - I think it will be hard to crack the top 5 in the SEC (as those are all top 20 teams nationally IMHO), but a 6-8 finish seems very doable and that should be enough to return to the NCAA.
