NFL still loves the ACC, SEC

 

 

Spring practice is officially over. The NFL Draft is officially over. So what did we learn over the weekend?

 

The NFL still loves the ACC, SEC:  As we told you last Friday, over the past five drafts before Saturday the SEC (191) and the ACC (176) have had more draft picks than any of the nine other Division I-A conferences. In Saturday’s first round the SEC had three of the first six picks, four of the top 12 and five of the top 18.

 ACC had four of the first nine and nine of the first 45, which was more than any other conference.

The SEC had eight first-round selections and the ACC had five. So 13 of the first 32 players chosen in the first round of the draft, over 40 percent, came from those two conferences. The final totals in the draft were, by conference:

CONFERENCE—–SEC—-ACC—-PAC-10—-BT—B12—-BE

Total picks———-37——-33——-32——-28—-28——27

 

Here is the SEC and ACC breakdown by school.

ACC DRAFT PICKS BY SCHOOL

Atlantic: Boston College 2; Florida State 1; Clemson 4; Maryland 5; N.C. State 2; Wake Forest 4.

Coastal: Duke 0, Georgia Tech 4, Miami 1, North Carolina 5;  Virginia 4, Virginia Tech 1.

Notice that Florida State and Miami had only one player drafted each while six other schools, including Georgia Tech, had four of more players chosen. Miami’s streak of 14 straight drafts with a first-round choice was broken.

 

SEC DRAFT PICKS BY SCHOOL

East: Florida 3; Georgia 6; Kentucky 1; South Carolina 7; Tennessee 1; Vanderbilt 1.

West: Alabama 4; Arkansas 1; Auburn 3; LSU 6; Ole Miss 4; Miss. State 0.

Notice that South Carolina led all schools in the SEC with seven draft choices.

 

My two favorite draft stories were Michael Oher of Ole Miss and Aaron Curry of Wake Forest.

Oher’s story has been chronicled in a book, “The Blind Side,” which is being made into a movie, portions of which were shot at Georgia Tech. Oher was abandoned and homeless as a teenager in Memphis. He was taken in and eventually adopted by Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy. Oher had every right to be angry at the world. But instead he used his energy to make the most of his opportunity. He was taken by the Ravens as the 23rd player in the first round.

Curry is a testament to what determination and good coaching can do for a player. Curry was not a highly recruited player out of E.E. Smith high school in Fayetteville, N.C. He was small, just over 190 pounds. Wake Forest and East Carolina were the only Division I-A scholarship offers he had. Former Georgia assistant Brad Lambert, now the defensive coordinator at Wake Forest, was convinced that Curry was going to be a great player.

“I remember Brad asking me to watch film of Aaron so that I didn’t think he was making stuff up,” head coach Jim Grobe said. “Brad said: ‘Do you see what I see?’ And I did. It was clear that if Aaron could put on some weight he would be something special.”

It took five years at Wake Forest but Curry eventually grew to 6-2, 254 pounds. On Saturday Curry was taken by the Seahawks as the fourth player in the first round.

 

Two more reasons why I don’t understand the NFL:  Vanderbilt’s D.J. Moore lasted until the fourth round  (119th pick) and Florida State’s Everette Brown was not taken until the second round (43rd pick).

Moore had 13 career interceptions and was one of the better all-purpose players in the SEC. He averaged 19.4 yards per kickoff return and 14.4 yards per punt return.  Various reports said he ran a relatively slow 40-yard dash time at the combine and at Vanderbilt’s Pro Day. That’s something I’ve never understood about the NFL. This guy excelled against the best competition in college football. He can PLAY. How do you ignore that and base a decision on some numbers on a stopwatch?

Florida State’s  Brown led the ACC in tackles for loss (21.5) and sacks (13.5) last season. Some thought he was a “tweener” at 6-2, 256. Again, reports were that his 40 time was a little slow.

Both guys were juniors and it looks like both could have used a senior year to increase their draft stock.

 

Andre Smith is one talented but very lucky guy: I was glad to see that after a series of bad decisions that could have cost him dearly, Alabama OT Andre Smith was the No. 6 player picked in the draft by the Bengals.

Not long ago it looked like Smith, the Outland Trophy winner, had blown his chance at becoming a wealthy man. He was suspended for the Sugar Bowl after it was determined that he or someone connected to him had had contact with an agent’s representative. He shows up at the NFL combine out of shape and then doesn’t work out. He then leaves the combine without telling anybody and gets a ton of well-deserved bad press.

Smith got his bacon saved because he fired his first agent and hired a pro in Rick Smith. Andre is also lucky because Alabama coach Nick Saban went to bat for him with the NFL teams who wanted the real skinny on this kid.

This should be a cautionary tale, especially to juniors who enter the NFL Draft. Two lessons: 1) Hire a proven agent and do what he says; 2) If you want to be a professional then ACT like a professional. If you’re not sure how to act, then refer back to Rule 1.

 

The B.J. Coleman decision is best for both sides: The people I talk to tell me that Tennessee’s coaches were caught completely off guard when sophomore quarterback B.J. Coleman announced last week that he was going to transfer to another school. Coleman told his hometown newspaper in Chattanooga that he didn’t think he would get a “fair shake” from the new coaching staff. Coleman felt he had made it clear in spring practice that he should have the job ahead of senior Jonathan Crompton. I think Coleman could have chosen his words more carefully because it makes no sense to suggest that Lane Kiffin would play a lesser quarterback in this league.  Conspiracy theorists say Kiffin wants to play a senior to open the door to sign the quarterback of the future next February. That doesn’t make any sense either. Coaches take the talent they have on hand and build the best possible team for that season.

The reality is that Coleman’s decision is probably the best for both parties. If he had been head and shoulders better than Crompton in the spring, then he would have the edge going into fall camp. The truth is that none of the three Tennessee quarterbacks—Crompton, Coleman, and Nick Stephens–were really setting the world on fire.

Is it just me or am I already starting to see some tiny little cracks in the blind enthusiam of even some of the most delusional Vol faithful? With their best available QB just having walked out the door, some are now starting to question the Kiffin “strategy”. According to the Chattanooga newspaper, ol Kiff couldn’t even find the time nor the inclination to even meet with Coleman. Sounds like Kiffin just totally dismissed the guy, not even trying to convince the kid to come back in the fall and compete for the starting job, which he probably could have won IF given a FAIR chance. Looks like it’s gonna be a couple of extremely challenging years for the Vols, at least until they can get a real QB! Of course, many of the “still too blind to see” are hoping that this is some clever scheme that will lead to the next Peyton Manning walking thru the door with the next recruiting class (good luck). But some are starting to see what everyone else in the conference already knows…that Kiffin is not competant in many areas including what he says sometimes in running his mouth and how he handles people and situations. That he is just plain way over his head in this job. I myself take great pleasure in knowing that even the great Peyton never beat the Gators!!!

BC was playing with 3rd string qb against Vandy in the bowl. Everyone knows the SEC was overall down in 2008. UT got beat by Wyoming for Gosh sakes. Which current conference’s teams have the most players in the NFL? (ACC) That should tell you that although the SEC has been the best conference of the last 15 years (yes I’ll admit that because its obvious) It has not been as dominant as people would have you believe. And with better coaches coming in the last few years (Cutcliffe, CPJ, Butch Davis) The ACC has a real shot to take over as the best conference in the upcoming years. After all, if we judged it by who has the biggest stadiums then the big 10 top teams would dominate. Bama get ready in 2013 and just hope Saban doesn’t bolt because he is not saying all the right things right now. Hes setting himself up for an exit because the Bama nation is too much to handle.

Speaking of the draft, I noticed that CollegeFootballNews.com lists Troy Defensive End Brandon Lang as a possible 2nd round pick in the 2010 draft. Dawg fans will remember that Lang, who played with Asher Allen at Tucker HS, was a big-time recruit for UGA who may have been the answer to Georgia’s pass-rushing problems last season. Brandon committed to UGA, I don’t think he could make it in to the school, even after a year at prep school, so he signed with Troy instead. I hadn’t heard much about him, but he must be doing something right to be projected to go so highly in the draft. I guess we’ll see…..

Looks like Kiffin is indeed a moron. I talked to some UT friends of mine and I also saw the spring game stats and the scrimmage stats. Clearly, BJ Coleman won the job on the field. His stats were absolutely superior to the other 2 qbs and especially to the qb who was chosen as the starter.

I think Tony was right. Kiffin is going to write off this year and play a less qualified senior qb for the sole purpose of going out and recruiting a 5 star qb prospect with the sales pitch that the kid can be a 4 year starter.

Big mistake. That means a guaranteed 2 years of mediocrity. It means that Kiffin will play with write off this year by playing an untalented senior year and then throw a freshman into the fray the next year which would for the freshman simply be a tough learning year. No true freshman is just going to come in from day 1 and so you could almost write off year 2 for Kiffin. And if the kid turns out to be a bust on the scale of a Ron Powlus or even a minor bust like the Clausen kid at Notre Dame then Kiffin is outta there in year 3.

The really damaging thing about BJ Coleman not winning the qb job, not getting a “fair shake” is that other UT players see this. What kind of a message does it send to them that the player who wins the job on the field doesn’t get to be the starter? What does that do to morale if they know the guy that should be the starter doesn’t get the job? It sows the seeds of discontent because then its in the back of every player’s mind that they may not get a “fair shake” from the coaches.

No offense to UT fans but you get the idea that this guy Kiffin just isn’t too bright.

FloridaDawg: If I may be presumptious enough to try to answer your question: If the best talent is coached by Coach Cool, Willie & Bozo, it does. You can also rephrase your original question to: “Does this mean that just as good a talent does not equal championships?”. The answer would be the same. I hope I have helped.

Saint nick: by your logic the ACC was the best basketball conference in 2008-09 because UNC won the NC. Of course the big east actually was better top to bottom – just like the ACC was better top to bottom in football than the SEC as ranked by several systems including sheridan and massey. GT played a terrible game against LSU – they wern’t prepared, they got down early and tried desparate things to get back in the game which backfired. LSU meanwhile seemed to take the game alot more seriously. Kind of like the Bama Utah game. Our coach didn’t publicly blame the fans for losing though like Saban did last week. I sure hope for Saban’s sake that the tide doesn’t lose a game they shouldn’t in 2009 cuz it might get ugly with all this fan antogonizing.

Bham wreck,

Let me help you out there with your football knowledge son. Tim Tebow doesn’t run an option offense. He runs a spread offense which is totally different and certainly features a lot more passing then the 10 passes a game that Tech or a traditional option offense runs. But certainly one of the reasons nfl scouts project him as a 3rd to 5th round draft choice if he wants to be a qb is because he does in fact run the ball more than he would in say a pro style offense.

Secondly, UT losing 1 game to Wyoming. Its one game dimwit. Every conference in the country has at least 1 team that lost an embarrassing game it shouldn’t have lost. Kinda like Michigan losing to APP STATE. Quit basing your whole argument on one freaking game you moron.

Thirdly, the SEC is down? UT and Auburn were down but they are merely 2 of 12 teams. If being “down” means your conference wins 6 out of its 8 eight bowl games I’ll take down anytime! What do you consider an “up” year. Is the ACCs 4-5 record during bowl season including several blowout losses an “up” year?

Lastly, fools like you have been saying for 3 years now that Saban is gone tomorrow. Really? The man just pledged 2 million to be distributed to the Bama general scholarship fund in 10 yearly installments. Does that sound like someone who is going somewhere?

You said he is making statements hinting that he is heading toward the exit door. Really? What specific statement was that? I missed have missed that one! Please provide the quote you saw that indicates he is leaving because his actions sure seem to indicate otherwise.

Saban didn’t blame the fans for the loss, he blamed the attitude of the players for the loss. Although I will agree that it is HIS job to coach the players to not listen to the fans and media. The players believed that all they had to do was go through the motions and they would destroy Utah. Utah wanted to play Bama, Bama wanted to play OU for the title.

Saint Nick: If “knowing football” is what we’re trying to do here then you should know that Tech won 9 games in 2008, not 7. You should also know that the last quarterback they had on the flats that was any good (Hamilton) was the leading Heisman candidate until the Ricky Williams rule through the trophy in Ron Dane’s lap.

This whole Tennessee thing is rather comical when you have no stake in the outcome. If UT losses all their games it’ll be pretty funny. If UT beats UGA, Florida, or Alabama it’ll be down right hilarious.

Bham wreck,

Saban did not publicly blame Bama fans for losing the bowl game. Only a complete moron would read what he said and somehow glean the idea that he blamed the fans for the loss. What he did say and virtually all Bama fans agreed was that the whole Bama nation and the team came into a BCS bowl like the Sugar Bowl with a down feeling because instead of playing OU for the national title game we were stuck playing Utah for lesser spoils. Its a feeling the whole team and the fan base had.

What a guy like you doesn’t understand is expectations. Things are different at Alabama then say Tech. At Alabama we expect to compete for national championships and for us it was a downer to be playing in the Sugar Bowl when we were less than 15 minutes of football from playing for a national title.

Saban’s only point was that we still had a lot to play for and that while it was disappointing to not be playing for the national title we still had an immensely successful season and the team and fans should have been more pumped up for the Sugar Bowl. There were over 100 other teams that would have loved to be in the position we were in and it was just a shame that we didn’t appreciate at least being in a bcs bowl game. But again, it goes back to expectations and a committment to excellence. Something you wouldn’t understand.

How you manage to glean from that the idea that Saban is all of a sudden about to bolt is remarkable! Keep hoping buddy.

You are just reading what you want into Saban’s comments. He clearly was including the fans and their “cultural problem” in the blame for not having enthusiasm for the sugar bowl. Why would he bring it up is a good question? The question he was answering had nothing to do with the answer! Secondly Alabama has a rich tradition but its a little comical how many NC’s they claim. If Notre Dame counted titles like Bama did they would have 17. By the way Bear Bryant was a no-character thug – the chick granning incedent speaks for itself. Anyway get ready to get beat down in 2013. And by the way – why can’t they play more than one decent team OOC? And don’t give me “The SEC blah blah” because UT, AU, MSU, Kentucky and South Carolina aren’t scaring anyone.

Kiffinisatosser,

You’re right. We are not that relevant. We were less than 1 qtr from playing for the national championship but of course you are correct. We must not have been relevant at all this year. Finishing ranked 6th in the country after being ranked no. 1 for 5 weeks of the 12 week regular season also means you’re irrelevant. You’re right. We weren’t relevant at all this year.

1976? We’ve won a national title in 78,79, and in the 1990s in 1992. I fail to understand why you mention 1976 except for the idea that maybe you’re just plain stupid. That would explain some things. Incidentally, when is the last time you won a national title. And yes. I do know who you pull for. I just want to hear it from you.

Bham wreck,

Once again you show your profound ignorance and poor judgement. Forget the 12 national titles. Its really more like 9 legit titles. Are you happy now?

Secondly, to call Bear Bryant a no character thug is so silly and childish that I don’t even know where to begin. Suffice it to say that for every idiot like you who would make such a moronic statement like that that there are probably a few million people including highly regarded coaches, fans of other sec and national programs, etc. who would look at you as if you were a raving lunatic if you would made statement like that to them with a straight face. Its an incredibly foolish thing to say.

Lastly, your statement that we only play one really tough out of conference statement is equally ludicrous. We play Va Tech who is a perennial top 10 or top 15 team and who has won your conference 3 of the last 5 years. Besides USC they are the only program to win 10 games or more for 4 straight years. Every big time program plays at least one good if not great out of conference team. Some play 2 good but not great out of conference teams.

Nobody plays 2 great out of conference programs every year. Nobody! Does Tech play 2 top tier out of conference programs every year? I don’t think so. They play UGA cause they have to because they are an instate rival. Who else do you play this year out of conference?

Bama does what everyone in a bcs conference does and what some don’t do at all. We schedule at least one top 10 team out of conference and this year its Va Tech who probably will be ranked 9th or 10th in the preseason polls. Most bcs conference teams will schedule one tough or at least one above average out of conference team and then load up 3 patsys on their home schedule. Take a look at schedules upcoming for 2009 and you will notice this. You are really just showing just how profoundly ignorant of college football you really are.

Bama has one big time out of conference foe every year that we try to schedule who will be in the preseason top 10. Once again you show your profound ignorance of college football.

Nobody schedules 2 top 10 ooc foes. Nobody! Some programs schedule 2 decent ooc teams but virtually every bcs team tries to schedule one big time ooc foe or 2 midlevel ooc opponents and some bcs conference teams just schedule one midlevel opponent and 3 patsys. Given the rugged sec schedule we do what most programs do. We have 1 top 10 opponent in VA., Tech and 3 patsies just like virtually every other big name program. Tech plays UGA every year because they have to cause its an instate rivalry. Other than that who do you play this year?

Because of the way the sec schedules are made years in advance and the rotation we’ll be playing those 2 teams soon enough in a couple more years. And if we make it to the sec championship game we will be playing one of the 2 of them anyway so what’s your point?

We picked a team that has won their bcs conference 3 of the last 5 years and will surely be a preseason top 10 opponent as our bigtime ooc game. You guys picked Vandy and Miss State? I’m still laughing. UGA you already have to play anyway. You’re a funny guy.
