SEC Power Poll: That's a Wrap

Secpowerpoll2008_medium
First of all, thanks to all the blogs who participated (or, in on case, are still participating) in the roll-out of the SEC Power Poll All-SEC Team. To wrap things up, a few notes on the results:

The East is the winner. Between the two divisions, the East had more selections, with 15 to the West's 13. The East won on defense, claiming seven nods, while the West took five. Offense (6-6) and special teams (2-2) were even. Each team in the division had at least one selection.

Alabama also a winner. The Tide far and away outperformed the other team in its division. Its eight selections (four offense, three defense, one special teams) were almost twice as many as the rest of the West combined (five picks). Alabama was the runaway leader among all teams, with Florida coming in a distance second with five selections. Alabama was one of three teams to have at least one player each selected in offense, defense and special teams. (The other two were Florida and LSU.)

A three-way tie for last. All the East teams got someone on the team, but not all the West teams did. In fact, three -- Arkansas, Auburn and Mississippi State -- were left out. When you consider the performances of the Hogs, Tigers and Bulldogs -- three of only four SEC teams not to make the postseason -- it's not hard to see why.

There were three unanimous choices and two ties. The unanimous choices were QB Tim Tebow, DT Terrence Cody and S Eric Berry. The ties were at LB (three-player tie for second between Rennie Curran, Rolando McClain and Eric Norwood) and WR (A.J. Green and Julio Jones).
