Post Five Dawgs on media All-SEC preseason teams

Friday July 25, 2008

The coaches’ preseason selections were announced earlier in the week, and this morning the media named its All-SEC teams.

Georgia had five players on the media’s all-conference teams: Knowshon Moreno and Dannell Ellerbe (first team), and Mohamed Massaquoi, Matthew Stafford, and Asher Allen (second team). Geno Atkins, a second-team selection by the coaches, did not make the media’s list. It’s a little odd that the media announced their All-SEC defenses according to a 3-4 format when the 4-3 is the prevalent alignment in the conference.

LSU had the most All-SEC selections by the coaches, but Auburn led the way among the media with nine players. LSU had eight, and Alabama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina each had five players selected. All five of Florida’s selections were first-teamers.

There were no unanimous first-team selections, though Percy Harvin came close with 68 out of 70 votes. This guy will surely be calling for an investigation after his bold prediction earlier in the week:

What’s the biggest certainty at SEC Media Days? That Tebow will be a unanimous first-team pick at quarterback this week at SEC Media Days….The names of the voters aren’t released, but they do have to put their name on the ballots they submit. No one would risk the embarrassment of being ratted out as the person who omitted Tebow.

Make that six persons, slick.

  • How is Knowshon not a unanimous pick? I understand Tebow not being one because he’s not a traditional QB so it’s up for interpretation. I understand Harvin not being one for the same reason.

    But why with Knowshon?

  • Hey, didn’t KnoMo get 68 votes just like Harvin did? I’ve seen several sources omit that, following the conference press release that missed it.
