Does your school have a center?

Awesome, they’ve been prequalified for the Rimington Trophy watch list, given each year to the nation’s most outstanding center. This is the second release of the watch list, with the first coming in May.

Of all 51 mentioned on said list, however, the SEC leads the way with 10 players.  The Big Ten follows with six players, while the ACC, Conference USA, Mountain West, and the PAC-12 all have five players each.

Last year’s winner was Michigan’s David Molk.

    Dillon Day – Mississippi State

    Day started six of 13 games as a redshirt freshman for the Bulldogs in 2011. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound sophomore is a native of West Monroe, La.

    Yep, Dillon was one Louisiana great one that got away….but we have P.J. Lonergan and he is a good one as well, anchor for the veteran offensive line to protect the pocket for the first pro-style QB we have had in years. Did we have a QB last year? ha.

    I’m only seeing nine from the SEC.

    I count 10…… I’m guessing you aren’t ready to welcome aTm to the sec…

    Ummm never mind on my 2nd count I only got 9 as well……aTm included

    I was wondering if I just couldn’t count or something. I literally counted about 10 times before posting.
    P.S. Why do people dislike my post when all I do is point out a flaw in the article?

    Saban hasnt pulled his wallet out yet…..that 10 number will go up before the beginning of the season and Saban’s bank account will take a slight hit.
