Mosley and cornerback Dee Milliner) and had six selections over the three teams.

    Johnny Effin Heisman!!! I think that Damnotre Moore Should probably on this list too as one of the most consistent pass rushers in the country that also led his team in tackles.

    I have not heard of RB – Ka’Deem Carey, Arizona
    but I will give the voters the benefit of the doubt in choosing him over Eddie Lacy, Mike Gillislee, and the horses they have at Oregon….

    This’ll probably qualify as the idiot post of this story, but although I think Manziel is the best “player” in college football and worthy of the Heisman win, I don’t think he’s the best QB. I think Klein is the best (or at least, better) QB. Actually, I think if you’re naming a team, BY POSITION, there may have been several better choices at QB for 1st Team All-American than Manziel. I think like many people, I was impressed with Manziel as a “football player”, not so much as a “quarterback”. I’m a Florida fan, and I thought the same about Tebow. Great football player; not the best quarterback. Man, I hope this makes sense on some level. If it does, maybe someone can repeat it back to me so I get it :)

    Wait until that #1 in the country oline leaves. Then everyone will see just how lucky johnny manziel got with the stats he picked up this season. He’ll be slightly above average next season

    Seminole –

    Sorry to bust your bubble but the best OL in college is Bama, and it pains me to say that. Jones and Warmack are first teamers while fluker is a first rounder, possibly top ten. The destroyed a defense which has 9 potential draft picks on Georgia’s D.

    Will Sutton is a beast

    He is good…but not over Clowney or Werner

    Wooo Cairo!

    It’s getting easier and easier to completely disregard anything that #scalpem… posts because all he/she/it does is hate everything non-Florida State related. Just a quick reminder, 37-26. Enjoy the next 11 months. Every time I see you post, I’ll reply with 37-26 somewhere in my post… just to irritate you.

    Oh, wait a minute, did I mention lately… 37-26?

    Haters gonna hate. Don’t care. Beat Bama. Won Heisman.

    Florida727,
    not true at all, muschump jr.

    Clowney is a beast. He’d be #1 overall right now if he could come out

  13. 8to80texansblog says: Dec 11, 2012 5:27 PM

    I guess I haven’t seen enough FSU games but Damontre Moore has him beat in every major statistical category except pass break ups

    More sacks per game
    More tackles for loss
    More total tackles
    Same forced fumbles
    2 Blocked kicks to 0
    And Damontre Moore led the Aggies in tackles… from the DE spot… Dude was a BEAST all over the field. Maybe if you wanted to go with the ND guy Tuitt I could get on board but…

    Moore > Werner

    Michigan OL Taylor Lewan will have a great NFL career. Congrats to him and Go
    Blue beat the cocks on New Year’s Day!

    Werner seems to come up short in big games but carradine stepped up when that happened

    The fact that the Number One team only had one named player speaks volumes to just how good a team ND must be.
