Reviewing the real AP All-SEC team

Hey everyone. Welcome.

So I ran my All-SEC ballot by you earlier this week. Now we know who actually made the team. Let's see how that compares to what I chose.

BOLD are players I didn't have on my first team.

OFFENSE
WR — Shay Hodge, Mississippi, 6-2, 207, Sr.
WR — A.J. Green, Georgia, 6-4, 207, So.
L — Mike Johnson, Alabama, 6-5, 303, Sr.
L — Ciron Black, LSU, 6-5, 322, Sr.
L — Mike Pouncey, Florida, 6-5, 315, Jr.
L — John Jerry, Mississippi, 6-6, 335, Sr.
C — Maurkice Pouncey, Florida, 6-5, 310, Jr.
TE — Aaron Hernandez, Florida, 6-2, 250, Jr.
QB — Tim Tebow, Florida, 6-3, 240, Sr.
RB — u-Mark Ingram, Alabama, 5-10, 212, So.
RB — Anthony Dixon, Mississippi St., 6-1, 235, Sr.
K — Leigh Tiffin, Alabama, 6-2, 212, Sr.
All-Purpose — Dexter McCluster, Mississippi, 5-9, 170, Sr.
All-Purpose — Randall Cobb, Kentucky, 5-11, 188, So.

DEFENSE
E — Antonio Coleman, Auburn, 6-3, 261, Sr.
E — Carlos Dunlap, Florida, 6-6, 290, Jr.
T — u-Terrence Cody, Alabama, 6-5, 354, Sr.
T — Dan Williams, Tennessee, 6-3, 327, Sr.
LB — u-Rolando McClain, Alabama, 6-4, 258, Jr.
LB — u-Eric Norwood, South Carolina, 6-1, 252, Sr.
LB — Rennie Curran, Georgia, 5-11, 225, Jr.
CB — Javier Arenas, Alabama, 5-9, 195, Sr.
CB — Joe Haden, Florida, 5-11, 190, Jr.
S — u-Eric Berry, Tennessee, 5-11, 203, Jr.
S — Mark Barron, Alabama, 6-2, 214, So.
P — Drew Butler, Georgia, 6-2, 203, So.

    MY MISSING GUYS
  • Ryan Mallett at quarterback. He made the second team. I guess it's a matter of how much one guy makes a difference. Arkansas, in my opinion, would have been awful without Mallett. Florida minus Tebow wouldn't have been No. 1, but they'd have been pretty good. I could see a great argument for Tebow, too. It's just a matter of preference.

  • Colin Peek at tight end. He made the second team. I also like Hernandez a lot and I think he'll be a terrific NFL player. He's significantly faster than Peek. I've been impressed with Peek all year because, for a while there, he was the main player in the Tide's passing attack. Peek was up to that challenge and more.

  • Patrick Peterson at cornerback. He made the second team. Cornerback can be a very difficult position to quantify. I don't really look at stats. I go by coaches. I hear who they consider nasty and if the player looks nasty to me, I develop that opinion. I assure you that Peterson's reputation is more significant than a second-team selection would lead you to believe.

Tebow? really?

I'm no Auburn expert but Coleman seemed to play well coming down the stretch.

Peek was a good selection. He is a player that surprised me in the Iron Bowl. I didn't know anything about him before then, but he was impressive.

Peek would have been more widely known but he got hurt in the UT game during warmups (strained MCL when a player fell into him)

That limited him for a couple of games.

Thanks for the heads up FSJ

Is Daren Bates up for freshman of the year honors? He was a pleasant surprise and really made a difference for us this season.

Darvin Adams nowhere to be found. Doesn't make any sense.

2:36 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Darvin is not as good as AJ Green.

As for Hodge, his numbers were a shade better than Darvin. So that's why I voted Hodge.

Darvin would have been No. 3 for me.

That kid from Vanderbilt led the league in all-purpose yards.

That's probably more impressive that what Bates has done, though Bates has been a huge surprise.

The biggest shock to me: Anthony Dixon is not a unanimous first-team guy. He was outstanding the whole way through.

I still like McElroy for QB. I didn's see the games where he apparently was trying to emulate the early season Jeff Crompton.

But Tiffin? no thanks. He's undeserving of 1st or 2nd team. Plus I still haven't forgiven his daddy.

2:43 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Leigh Tiffin is a great kicker. What are you talking about?

2:44 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Jay,

What's your read on this Houston Nutt stuff?....

He's denied it since this morning.

I think it is typical Sexton maneuvering.

2:54 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Sexton, no doubt.

Nutt is not going to Kansas ... and never was.

3:06 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

JayGT - he may be a great kicker, but there were greater placekickers in the SEC this year.

3:06 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

Wasn't Tiffin accosted during the offseason?

#18 KODI BURNS!

Ziemba was going to be first team All-SEC but he prematurely posted on Facebook the news prior to the official announcement.

Consequently, he was penalized and relegated to the second team.
