Wow . . . No Julio Jones anywhere?

Love it.

Leigh Tiffin over Blair??? My arse. Even if you consider all else to be equal, which I don't, Tiffin missed 3 PAT's this year, including one in the SECCG on Saturday. That's hard for a kicker purported to be a Groza candidate to do.

I'm loving 5'8" "too small" Rennie trumping the eye-gouging-all-world Spikes for First Team ALL-SEC! haha

Tiffin over Blair is just ridiculous!

First Blair should be 1st team.

Second to all you jackholes who said Rennie is too short and wouldn't play for the might Bama or Gators...up your nose with a rubber hose!

I know this is totally unrelated, but have you heard anything Dave about the effect of Martinez' departure on recruiting? Are there any shaky commits, or any changes in direction? That's not really a usual topic here, and I'm usually totally fine with that, but with the coaching shakeup, I'm more curious than usual. I'm also curious about how it impacts coaching for the bowl, but you shed a little light on that a few posts back. Any thoughts?

Reshad Jones got SNUBBED! #9 had a good year, too bad no one noticed

How did Dexter McCluster make the first and second team? I'm on board with him being awesome, and probably should have been the SEC Offensive POY, but that's extreme.

The Blair Walsh snub just proves that many, if not most, voters in these stupid All-SEC teams just vote for the SEC Champion's players. As RC points out, Tiffin missed THREE PAT's! I guess you can forgive a voter for not knowing the stats on kickers in the league, but he missed one in the freaking championship game, which every single voter in the SEC should have been watching! Walsh missed two kicks all year long, and he's one of the biggest reasons we're even going to a bowl game this year. Without him, we don't beat Arizona State, we don't beat Georgia Tech... heck, we may not beat anyone besides Tennessee Tech.

Blair, come on up to Dalton to grab your plaque, you're on my first team All-SEC list.
