It’s out. Some of it’s not very surprising – the conference’s SIDs love them some Alabama and LSU…
and think Georgia and South Carolina are going to duke it out in the East.
But some of the names on the first and second preseason All-SEC teams are a little more interesting. Alabama has three first team picks – all on offense. Abry Jones makes the list; John Jenkins doesn’t. Zac Stacy makes first team ahead of Knile Davis and Da’Rick Rogers does the same ahead of his teammate Justin Hunter. Dismukes got plenty of accolades from his freshman year, but there are plenty of good centers in the conference this year.
And Clowney not only makes first team, but is named the best defensive lineman in the SEC. Couple that with Lattimore as the leading Heisman candidate and you have to say that the OBC has benefited greatly from demographics, although you have to give him credit for stepping up the Gamecocks’ recruiting success. A decade ago, I doubt either kid is wearing garnet and black.
