  • Mizzou had one pre-season all-SEC pick. Now, four first teamers. Great season even with the loss in the title game

  • How in God’s name can Connor Shaw be left off this list. SMH Jon. No respect. You know his stats. Go Cocks. (;-

    • You’re not yelling at me right, Bubba? This isn’t my All-SEC ballot. This is the Associated Press’.

    • Connor Shaw leads the nation in mentions as the most underrated player. Coaches and SEC sports writers love him but the AP doesn’t know who he is.

      • Jimbo – I keep telling everyone that Connor Shaw is consistently the most underrated player in the SEC.

        • @JonCooper:
          Thank you for your words about Conner Shaw.( I also see his production,accuracy-
          ONE INT against 21 tds–plus running tds AND top 3 accuracy stats–and not even an
          “Honorable Mention”.
          December, 2013,Shaw ‘s at 23 and 5 as a starting QB. Oh–and he played on one arm at times, and came off the bench,sick,unprepared, and on one LEG willed
          his team to become the first QB to beat Missouri in THEIR hostile stadium . ..
          Something is not right w/ Conner Shaw not even getting an honorable mention.)

          As a Gamecock fan, again, I thank you for noticing and articulating something
          that some “experts” cannot appreciate in this warrior-player-winner QB.

    • He was clutch, but with Manziel, McCarron, & Murray, Shaw just wasn’t getting in the group.

    • Shaw has put up some numbers and done an awful lot for his team. I don’t see how Met got a mention but Shaw didn’t.

  • How do you leave off Herera from UGA? He only had the most tackles in the SEC? not even honorable mention for him, how does that get over looked?

    • That just means UGA was on defense a lot this year….

    • Herrera is extremely average. Not a big presence in the inside run. Slow in coverage. I thought after last year he would be much improved but I saw no difference. He is rightfully left out. He is no Rennie or Dannell. Hope he works hard this offseason.

  • and honestly how can ONLY QBs be getting the honorable mention for offense? without the WRs, RBs, and TEs, NONE of those guys are worth a nickel.

  • how the heck did Jadeveon Clowney get 1rst team all american???? there are guys that blew his numbers away that didnt even get an honorable mention!! he doesnt deserve it this year at all…hes a great player but he didnt do squat this year!!

    • This is not an All America team(s). However, Clowney’s presence on defense allowed Kelcy Quarles to also make 1st team SEC defensive team.

    • Anyone who says Clowney shouldn’t be 1st team obviously didn’t watch his games (not just one or two, but all). I have never in all my years of watching CFB, seen a defensive player schemed against so much by every team they played. 90% of run plays went away from him and the amount of time a QB took a 3 step drop and got rid of the ball quick was unprecedented… all this on top of him being double and triple teamed on every single play. The one team that thought their LT could block him 1-on-1 (UT – Richardson), nearly caused their RB and QB to get decapitated in the 1st Qtr… they changed their game plan real quick after that. Anyone who’s watched enough football knows that stats are very misleading for defensive players, esp. DLinemen. A player who has to be game planned against, run away from and blocked my multiple players on every play has a HUGE impact on the game regardless of stats. Clowney did that this year and therefore, was fully deserving of 1st team.

  • I am a Mizzou fan and I can’t figure out how Connor Shaw isn’t on this list. That kid is amazing and a beast. Only real slight I see.

  • Wow… no Connor Shaw, anywhere? Undefeated CAREER at home, toughest SOB you’ll ever see play QB and he doesn’t even get an honorable mention? You know what he’ll do about this? He’ll just go out and have another workhorse day in the Capital One Bowl and act like it’s nothing. He’ll just punch in and go to work like it’s just another day.

  • Auburn didn’t have a single player on this list last year. Not even honorable mention. Now we have Coach, Op, and 9 players total on the list. Reese Dismukes may win Remington award and Stephen Clark is a top 3 punter. This list didn’t do them justice.

  • Gurley deserves first team over Jeremy Hill. No contest

  • So amusing that Manziel can go 0-4 vs ranked opponents (playing awful at times too) and still get the votes. I’m glad they at least had Murray on the 2nd team as I believe it was his best season considering the circumstances.

  • First off, will join the rabble-rousing as to Connor Shaw. Maybe not 1st or 2nd team, but if there is such thing as a lock for honorable mention, I’d say he deserves it.
    Second, I’m surprised at Artie’s 1st team nod. Either that means the TE’s in the SEC this year are down or a lot more stock is given to a TE’s blocking ability because he had quite a few drops this year.
    Finally, Hill being selected over Gurley is a travesty, and I’m not even thinking about the character issue. Sure, Gurley suffered the ankle injuries that kept him out, but if that were truly a factor, he shouldn’t have even been tied with Mike Davis and Davis should’ve gotten that spot outright. C’mon AP, either hold the inured ankles against him or acknowledge he is the best RB in the SEC, injuries this year aside. Don’t split the baby.

  • I’m getting freakin tired of the Nkemashian bias. this time its for Denzel Nkemdashian making AP all SEC 2nd team over Benardrick McKinney

    got curious so I did a little digging.

    DK – 9 GP, 34 tackles, 16 solo, 2 TFL, 0 Sacks, 0 QBH, 1 FF, 1 FR, 1 Blocked Kick
    BM – 12 GP, 70 tackles, 41 solo, 6 TFL, 2.5 sacks, 4 QBH, 0 FF, 2 FR, 0 Blocked Kicks

    yea that’s pretty f’n biased

    although Chris Jones did get honorable mention and RNK didn’t so I guess i’ll consider that a win. I guess he won them over at the egg bowl despite being better all year

  • Chris Smith and/or Trey Flowers don’t even get Honorable Mentions?

  • I wonder how many AP writers played football at any level? Go figure. God Bless SDS and their efforts to present a fair and balanced opinon based on research and common sense. Go SEC. Would be nice to win all 10 bowl games. ;-)

  • And even tho he had an injury shortened season, HOW THE HECK can Todd Gurley be SECOND TEAM??? Really?
