The Mississippi State Bulldogs were picked to finish last in the SEC West this season, which is something that didn't sit well with the players.

During a recent appearance on SiriusXM, head coach Chris Lemonis talked about how his "group is pissed" and motivated by the prediction. Per SDS:

“Our group is pissed, and hey, look at the SEC West, I think the last 3 national champions, and 4 out of the last 5, Arkansas had a chance to win it on the last play,” Lemonis said. “The West is just so talented. Should we be picked last? No. But that’s our fault, and our mindset is to change that. We do talk about it, it’s a little bit of a motivation. Hopefully I’ve got a pissed off group that they feel like they have something to prove.”

Florida is predicted to finish first in the East, followed by Tennessee, Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Kentucky, Georgia, and Missouri.

Arkansas is predicted to win the West, followed by LSU, Texas A&M, Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss and MSU.
