  1. What kind of drugs were the 20 guys who didn’t vote for Clowney for All-SEC First Team using?

  2. Maybe the 20 guys who didn’t vote for Clowney wanted to give him some motivation. That’s the ONLY reason I can think of!

  3. As a coach who voted for all-conference teams for decades, i would suggest to the readers a few grains of salt for digesting lists like this. 1. Team sports are exactly what the name says, not one of these players will win a single game without about 23 other players, all of which could be left off this list. 2. all-conference lists tend to snowball where voters who don’t really know the detailed qualifications of the candidates often vote for players from recent or historically successful teams. Coaches construct teams and schemes where an all-conference player might be riding on the shoulders of 23 other players or carrying a couple on his back, or anything in-between. More often than we suspect, the only person who fully understands why players perform so well or so poorly in that system, package, play-call is the coach who combines the physical and mental characteristics of those eleven. Also: a. it’s a pre-season advantage to be left off this team, post-season advantage to be on the team. b. any athlete that thinks about making or being left off this team during any snap of the season is not qualified during that play. c. Since not a single snap has been played in the 2013 season the media is basing these opinions on ?what?, you can’t say past performances because 12 months of change is a lot for 18-23 year olds, and even if past performances could be legit criteria, obviously the voters here are totally oblivious to past performances or they couldn’t arrange Florida more than 7 points from Missouri, etc. etc. etc.. Let’s hope they start real walkin and stop the media projection talkin asap.
