Trojans? What a joke! Barkley is a great QB, but he's gone and should be. National title? Bigger joke. Perhalps you could be the SEC scape goat for our next years champion. AND for sure your so called coach  "LAME WIMPEN" WILL NEVER WIN ANYTHING BUT DADDY'S LITTLE PUNK. He is certainly not a man!     Come on man.../find a real team to pull for

They may perhaps win the safe sex award. Although Warsaw college has supposedly patented a condom that is open on both ends and can be used twice.

To all you FBS fans-


Did you see what football should look like in December and Janurary.  Instead of the "Nobody Gives a Flying FU*^.com bowl.  The game Friday night between Montana and Northern Iowa was awesome.  If a small college town like Missoula can put on a show like that, what could it grow to in the FBS level? There needs to be a playoff system, and get rid of the stupid BCS!

It's a joke.  The writers are just saving up for next year when the Trojans win the national title, the Heismann, the Outland, put 4 on the first team offense and 2 on the defense, coach of the year, etc.

That is why we Bama and LSU get the SEC the contracts, we they are the best and everyone wants to watch US them!
Fixed that, Hog fan. You see, nobody watches Arkansas football with much interest at all. Good luck with K-State. The SEC is not a team. And your team is not the reason for the success of the SEC.

Let me see if I can understand this.  Junior left tackle Matt Kalil of Southern California is likely to be the #2 pick in the NFL draft this year (or at worst, #3), if he decides not to return to the Trojans for his senior season, but the best the football writers can do is find one PAC 12 player for their All-American team, and that is a lineman from Stanford.  No Matt Kalil?  Is this somebody's idea of a joke?

Sorry man, someone told you wrong. The SEC doesn't pay anyone. They GET paid for having the BEST college football in the nation. That is why we get the contracts, we are the best and everyone wants to watch US!

Anybody that watched Lavonte David play would see that not having him on this list is a total joke. He was in on almost every tackle and was also a lockdown cover guy on RB's and TE's. The guy is a beast.

IMO, Quinn Sharp should not be on this list. He didn't single handedly lose the ISU-OSU game but he didn't single handedly win the game either. That's what an All-American does, carries the team in the biggest games and the worst game. Look at the list, but then again it's a kicker, I guess I won't get much fire to this debate probably.
