So how's the SEC West going to shake out this fall?

Here are a few early predictions:

Bama: It's worth remembering that although the Crimson Tide won the national championship in 2017, it didn't win the SEC West. The personnel losses on defense -- particularly in the secondary --

Auburn: Though the season didn't end the way they wanted to, the Tigers had a memorable 2017, with wins over Alabama and Georgia. That resulted in a huge new contract for Gus Malzahn, who faces a slight rebuilding job this season. Most of the offensive line is gone, as is team MVP Kerryon Johnson and a number of key defensive players.

State: Boy, I really wanted to pick the Bulldogs to finish second, and if Dan Mullen had returned this season I might have. But I can't help but shake the feeling that a new coaching staff means they won't quite be ready for prime time.

A&M: How much difference can a serious coaching upgrade make? We'll find the answer to that question in the 2018 Aggies, who replace underachieving Kevin Sumlin with very well-paid Jimbo Fisher. The Aggies have to figure out an answer at quarterback and face a tough West schedule (at Alabama, at Auburn, at Mississippi State)...

LSU: If there's a controversial pick on this list, I guess it's the Tigers, whom I just don't see getting better in Year 2 of the Ed Orgeron experiment. LSU suffered its usual early exodus of players to the NFL and made a downgrade at offensive coordinator with Steve Ensminger replacing Matt Canada.

Arkansas: The Razorbacks were a disaster on both sides of the ball in 2017, leading to the ouster of the affable Bret Bielema. However, the school made what I believe was an excellent hire in Chad Morris, who should bring some offensive excitement back to Fayetteville.

Ole Miss: The Rebels were a pleasant surprise in the second half of 2017, rallying behind interim (now permanent) coach Matt Luke to finish 6-6, including a rout of Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl. Problem is, quarterback Shea Patterson and a number of other key players transferred out after Ole Miss was hit with a second year of postseason sanctions.

Urban Meyer finally weighs in on Florida’s new football hire: ‘The SEC East will feel Dan Mullen’

During a recent interview at Tim Tebow’s charity golf outing in Jacksonville, Meyer expressed some confidence in the Gators’ decision to bring in Dan Mullen as a replacement for Jim McElwain–

“It’s great for Florida, a great hire,” Meyer said. ”[Mullen] knows the landscape, knows Florida … the SEC East will feel Dan Mullen.”

Meyer, who was Mullen’s boss at Bowling Green, Utah and Florida prior to the former offensive coordinator spreading his wings as the head coach at Mississippi State, likely would be expected to shower praise upon a long-time friend. After all, the two won national titles together in 2006 and 2008 with Tebow himself helping guide the Gators offensive attack.

Mullen won’t have the luxury of a Heisman Trophy quarterback...

Fla fans aren't patient.  The SEC East had better feel Mullins soon. Fla not mentioned in way too early polls will add a few extra pounds of pressure to the new coaches
