When you look at the roster of players who are to be featured at SEC Media Days, it makes you wonder if there is a lot of star power in this league.
There are only two quarterbacks here this week ” Tim Tebow and Mississippi State’s Wesley Carroll ” compared to six offensive linemen. Coaches around this league often like to bring seniors or players they can depend on to say the right things.
The truth is that there is a lot of star power in this league. Most of it just isn’t coming to Hoover.
Think about how much more interesting it would be if you had any of the following players here:
* Knowshon Moreno, who scored the touchdown that caused the rushing of the field for Georgia against Florida. Moreno is a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate. Instead, we get Mohamed Massaquoi.
* Eric Berry, the extremely talented Tennessee defensive back. Instead, we get defensive end Robert Ayers.
* John Parker Wilson, he of the boy bangs, the Alabama starting quarterback from just down the road. Instead, we get offensive lineman Antoine Caldwell.
* Casey Dick, who will be running Bobby Petrino’s offense at Arkansas. Instead, we get center Jonathon Luigs.
That’s not to mention Percy Harvin, perhaps the most exciting player in the league. But Urban Meyer brought Tebow so nobody is complaining.
