It’s been interesting to see the disconnect between the season that Georgia has had – 5th in the country, per the BCS – and the evaluation of its talent, as we’ve seen in various all-SEC teams lately.
And now CFN has released its list of the top 30 players regardless of position in the SEC. Georgia has one player on the list, Moreno at #11. The only team with a poorer showing is Mississippi State.
Now I will say that any list that ranks Percy Harvin as only the 30th best player in the conference is suspect – does anybody that watched a lot of SEC ball this year honestly think that Jonathan Hefney had a better year than Harvin? – but still, to find that little elite talent on a team that has the second best record in the conference is strange. LSU, for example, has seven of the top 30.
So which is it here? Does Georgia simply boast that much more depth than any other school in the conference – there are seven schools with more than one player on CFN’s list that have worse records than Georgia - or is the Georgia coaching staff doing that much more with its resources than everyone else in the conference?
