The AP's 2010 All-SEC team was announced earlier today, and congrats are in order to Knile Davis, D.J. Williams and DeMarcus Love for making the 1st team (D.J. was one of five players to be chosen unanimously), and to Ryan Mallett, Tramain Thomas and Catholic High's Jake Bequette for making the 2nd unit.
If anyone had placed a decently-sized bet in Vegas on Davis being an all-conference RB before the season started (or after the Alabama game) they're probably shopping for yachts or property in the Carribbean right about now. Davis' rise from sporadically used platoon back to all-conference monster (over highly touted competitors such as Mark Ingram or Trent Richardson) has been one of the best parts of the entire season...very nice to see him get the recognition he deserves.
As for snubs, it's hard to argue against any of the WRs that were chosen, but it's a little unfortunate that we couldn't combine our four top guys into one mighty candidate...as it is now, Childs, Adams, Wright and Hamilton are all so good they end up cannibalizing each other's award chances. It's a nice problem to have.
