Auburn receives votes in preseason Coaches' Poll

The USA Today Coaches' Preseason Poll was released today. Five SEC teams are ranked (No. 1 Florida, No. 5 Alabama, No. 9 LSU, No. 10 Ole Miss and No. 14 Georgia).

Auburn was not ranked, but it was in the Others Receiving Votes category, with 12 points, putting the Tigers 39th overall. That's behind South Carolina (18 votes) and ahead of Kentucky (9), Arkansas (6) and Tennessee (2).

Seems a little strange that Auburn would get any kind of votes, considering how last season went. Then again, these preseason polls are largely rendered meaningless once the games start. The Tigers, after all, were ranked 11th to start last season.

This makes no sense. I'm a fan and I have no idea how the Tigers will be this season. Actually, I'll be shocked if they go to a bowl. Any bowl.

I don't consider myself a sunshine pumper or anything but Auburn won 5 games (and a few other games coming down to the end) last year and was god awful. If Auburn misses a bowl game again I would consider that horrible. I am not saying double digit wins or anything but six or seven regualr season wins should be minimal.

LSU is way overrated. They went 7-5 last year in the regular season, and i don't think another year under the tutelage of les miles will help that much.
