SEC Dominates Coaches All-American Team

Of the 25 players selected to the American Football Coaches Association All-American team, nine come from the Southeastern Conference.  (Must be more of that pro-SEC bias by the country’s college football coaches.)

For a comparison, here’s the number of All-American from each BCS conference:


SEC — 9
Big Ten — 6
Big 12 — 5
Pac-12 — 3
ACC — 1
Big East — 0


The SEC players who made the squad:


Offense
TE Orson Charles, Georgia
OL Barrett Jones, Alabama
RB Trent Richardson, Alabama

Defense
DL Melvin Ingram, South Carolina
LB Dont’a Hightower, Alabama
LB Jarvis Jones, Georgia
DB Mark Barron, Alabama
DB Morris Claiborne, LSU
DB DeQuan Menzie, Alabma


As you can see, Alabama had five All-Americans, Georgia two, and LSU and South Carolina one each.

Are you kidding me? No Trevathan on the team. Leads the mighty S.E.C. in tackles and sixth in nation in interceptions. Oh thats right he played for Kentucky.

One correction: Shawn Powell is the punter from Florida State, so the ACC has one All-American.

I was just thinking the same thing - where the heck is the honey badger? He might be the best overall defensive player in the country.
