SwimSwam Pulse is a recurring feature tracking and analyzing the results of our periodic A3 Performance Polls. You can cast your vote in our newest poll on the SwimSwam homepage, about halfway down the page on the right side, or you can find the poll embedded at the bottom of this post.
Our most recent poll asked SwimSwam readers to pick the winner of next month’s SEC Championships on the men’s side:
Question: Who will win the 2020 Men’s SEC title?
- Florida – 47.3%
- Texas A&M – 25.4%
- Georgia – 10.8%
- Missouri – 7.1%
- Tennessee – 7.1%
- Someone else – 2.2%
Swimulator projections have Texas A&M winning the men’s SEC title with a 230-point margin over Florida, but voters strongly favored the Gators in our poll.
The Swimulator is based entirely off of regular-season performances, so there can be plenty of flux when teams taper down for post-season competition. For example, as of this date last year, Florida was projected 106.5 points behind Mizzou in the Swimulator, but ultimately beat the Tigers by almost 100 points. However, Florida is more than twice as far back of the Swimulator leaders this year, so a comeback would take an even bigger conference performance.
Florida got 47.3% of the total votes, compared to 25.4% for Texas A&M. Georgia sits second in the Swimulator, and they got just over 10% of the votes. Missouri and Tennessee tied for fourth in our poll, with only 2.2% of voters picking the field.
