    SEC Coaches All-Freshmen team (Bama places four players)

    Kelly, Cooper, Yeldon, and Pettway.

    Kelly being on the team is surprising. Obviously, it shows the coaches respect his work in the mop-up duty.

    Yes, I figured there probably weren't meany centers starting this year as freshman; conversely, Geno might not have made it because there were many more Freshmen DBs who played in more games or started regularly.

    Yep; Geno was getting quality minutes, but the skill positions have many more freshmen competing at those spots. Congrats to our guys!! Having so many upper classmen on the regular list and then these guys on the freshmen list show we have talent all around!!

    Other than the kid at *U replacing Dismukes how many freshman centers would have gotten as much PT as Kelly?

    I thought Kelly looked good with the second-teamers, but I figured at least one SEC school started a freshman at center.

    That's a pretty good SEC offense right there: Cooper, Manziel, Yeldon, Gurley.....

    It would be kinda cool for someone like UnderArmor or Nike to put together a couple of "all conference" freshman games post season. No doubt the SEC would mop up...

    Sort of surprised Denzel wasn't on the list. He had a really good freshman season.

    Pettway doesn't play as much as #8, right?

    Rolltide.com credits him with 5 games on the year. We've seen throughout the season that the site hasn't been the most reliable, though.

    EDIT: Going with the site being wrong because it says he didn't have a tackle against Mizzou. We know that's not true.
