Thoughts and whatnot:

Kind of funny that the Heisman Trophy winner only got roughly 50% of the First Team votes.

I'm more insulted that Jadeveon Clowney wasn't a unanimous First Team pick. That's right, 20 idiots don't think he deserves to be on the First Team. This is being an edgy hipster for sloppy, frumpy writers in Dockers.

The complete absence of the A&M defense should be of concern. I don't necessarily agree with the journos, but we need some guys to step up in a serious way - particularly in the front seven.

I think Deshazor Everett and Toney Hurd, Jr. deserved some love.

Mike Evans will be First Team after the season.

We're lucky we miss Georgia this year. At least until Atlanta if all things go well.

I think A&M has three (maybe four) running backs better than the Second Team selections. Alas, none of those four were nominated for any team. Hard to catch journos' attention when they're on a witch hunt for a quarterback.

I would have thought Trey Williams would get some RS or AP attention.

Your musings in the comments, por favor.
