SOMEONE VOTED ARKANSAS TO WIN THE SEC. Not a game. Not the division. The whole thing.
This wise citizen has not yet revealed him/herself to the world, although the hunt is on.
The Razorbacks were, as the world has repeated over and over for months and months, picked last in the SEC West. But the Hogs did get four players on the All-SEC teams. If the Hogs have a better-than-expected season, they'll probably need some of the offensive linemen to find their way onto that list by the end of the year.
This is also your annual reminder that the media almost always picks the SEC champion incorrectly. Here's how they project the league to finish.
