    As Coach Monken said last season:

    "We've got a tough football team, a team that cares about each other. I don't think you've got to have the best players to win, I think you've got to have the best team to win. I'm not going to stand up here and talk about all these great players and All-Americans and we're faster and bigger and more athletic than everybody else. We are who we are. We're a tough football team who plays hard and plays for each other. So, I think just about anything's possible with a team like that."

    I could careless we only have one player. It doesn't mean anything. The only thing that matters is that 7th flag.

    Who else should be on there stat wise????

    Maybe Swope?

    Hard to say anyone else should be a preseason all American.

Maybe McKinnon if he plays DB exclusively. But right now I just don't see anybody other than Russell who is deserving of a preseason AA award.

    3 teams and Swope not on any is nonsense.

    What Swope did at the end of last season was impressive, but Sophomores who have about 5 starts under their belt don't make preseason AA teams. I think there were 2 Sophs on the 3 teams combined. One of them was a RB with 29 TD's last year. If Swope plays like he's capable then he will be there in the postseason and then next preseason.

    At the end of the day I doubt that there are very many of us who know anything at all about the players on these teams. Complaining about Swope not being on them is like newfan telling us that Dobson will be the starter at QB this year. You have to know about the other players as well as your own before you can say that somebody should or shouldn't be on the AA team.

    Washaun Ealy is 3rd team? lol Talk about the SEC homerism on those votes!! Swope was one of the best freshman in the country, he's about the only one missing from that list. He is also only a true sophomore.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    half, I would agree if we're talking about three eleven-player All-American teams. But each team has three RB and one FB. Clearly, they're willing to put option FBs under the FB slot (Breitenstein on first team, of course).

    Is Swope not one of the best twelve backs in the country?

    Compare Swope to the 2nd and 3rd team fullbacks:

    RUSHING GP Att Gain Loss Net Avg TD Long Avg/G
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    Kendall Gaskins 11 168 688 38 650 3.9 10 39 59.1


    Rushing gp-gs att gain loss net avg td lg avg/g
    Neukirch,Jordan 11-5 3 5 0 5 1.7 0 5 0.5


    I mean, Neukirk had 3 carries for 5 yards. And if he's an All-American, why did he start just five games but play in all eleven?
    Thanks, Rastabot!
