Ummm i'm confused, is this a joke or some kind of fark, because everywhere else i'm reading has Julio Jones as SEC Freshman of the year?

(which i think is a joke in and of itself too Green has had a much better year statistically and just big game contribution wise. I mean he caught the 2 winning TD's in two games in a row!)

So what gives?
