    Amari Rodgers gets an honorable mention with 525 yards from scrimmage and 4 TDs but none of our backs with better #s do. Okay.

    I think we have to get used to getting snubbed on D. Given his druthers, Woody would sub every other series and, once he gets the personnel, he will. Still, ASA should have gotten recognition. But I'm betting the pros are watching.

    On O, we suffer again from being a system offense without a "feature" back or a QB who throws a lot. This doesn't bother me so much for the skill positions, but I think Cooper should have gotten at least 3rd team. Next year he will do better.

    For Pressley, I think he's suffering from the underclassman's curse. You look at him and you can easily say, "Well, he's only a true sophomore. He'll be the same punter a year from now. He can wait." All true.

    What UGA math are you using? ASA more tackles, same TFLs, Bryant has 2 more sacks but ASA trumps that 2Ints

    ASA got snubbed for sure. He should have been 2nd team. Harvin should have been 1st, and Wells should have been an honorable mention. We spread things out too much for anyone else to make the list on offense, and our defense wasn't great this year. I think we could have some more guys next year as the defense improves (please) and hopefully we have Benson back healthy, and a QB that plays more consistently.

    Our defense was adequate - I mean FSU and UNC guys made it, LOL. I think our bigger problem was the rotating of players so much. With the new system and so many young highly rated guys, it took us several games (or more) to narrow down the starters. We never ended up with guys with a large number of tackles or interceptions, etc. ASA was always around, that was just a snub. But its like people don't even research anything - why else did Wesley Wells get left off when he had a higher kick make rate - 46/46 when the 3rd team guy went 48/54. That's just silly. But we've seen that before - we've had guys with more yards and TDs and a higher per carry/catch average get left off. It is what it is. We also got picked to finish 11th in the ACC and finished 4th.

    Yeah maybe the rotation of players did hurt. The only guys that may have deserved a look IMO (other than ASA obviously) where Malik or Tarik, otherwise we need to play a lot better on defense. I imagine next year Tarik and Jaunyeh will be on the list. They're ballers.

    Yea we rotated a lot of people. I mean Kaleb Oliver and Campbell also spent time at Safety this year too. CB we had Tre Swilling, Kerr, Lamont Simmons, Jay King, Zamari Walton, Askew...

    We need marketing at all levels.
    In post game presser - our coach needs to be HAPPY with play of some player.

    The sad part is, ASA is playing out of position in our defense if you ask me. He needs to be an OLB. We can't afford to put him there.

    Remember this was the first year for the defensive coach new defense he knew he needed to see more players and what they could do. We ( the fans) were the ones who thought just because we had a new DC we would be better in the first year. The players had a lot to learn

    He wasn’t even the starting punter for the Louisville game. I heard he was at Churchill Downs betting on horses instead. How can you be All Conference if you don’t even play in all the games?

    Also Bryant has 3 1st round draft picks beside him drawing attention. ASA would’ve had 20 sacks if he played with those guys

    Extremely disappointing that ASA didn’t make all conference. As many have already pointed out, he is deserving of this honor!

    I wouldn't worry about this "all-ACC" team. Any "all" team that does not have Hunter Renfrow of Clemson on the first 11 is not "all" anything. And NC State doesn't win anything league-wise, and leads the "all" offensive team? What in the wide world of sports ...?

    Not much room for GT players when they had to name 21 Clemson players.
    5 first team
    7 second team
    6 third team

    Who would you replace with Renfrow? 472 yards and 1 TD isn't really an award-worthy stat line.
