A classic piece(proof) of how the media, ESPiN, CBS, and the SEC family of misinformation, manipulate and control cfb. Say and report something erroneous often enough and the masses will subconciously believe it as fact.
It's been going on for years as to why the SEC is the sweetheart of CFB, all smoke and mirrors.
The Pac-12 has the most fresh AA and of course, they intentionally say the "SEC Dominates" in headlines. What about USC DOMINATES with 4 players chosen??? They lead ALL teams. But of course, "Bahgdad (media) Bob" has to report that the SEC still is in total control of the airport....as the TV shows live images of the US marines in control :) 
friken JOKE

“SEC dominates list of Freshman All-Americans”

“The SEC had the most players on the team with eight players, followed by the Pac-12 with six players.”

Err, I count eight for the Pac-12, seven for the SEC….quality journalism.

Matt Miller, Boise State?  His one handed grabs for touchdowns with defenders all over him alone would qualify him.  58 catches, 8 td's on a senior dominated team is pretty impressive.  He's 6'3" 215, and a state 100 meter champion to boot.  Expect to hear plenty about him next year.

Considering what Bridgewater had to deal with (new O-Line, 4 frosh WRs, midseason OC change), he definitely earned his spot on the All-American list. No offense to the other freshman QBs, but TB did it in a BCS league with fellow freshmen. I'm a little shocked Devante Parker or Eli Rogers isn't on the list as well.
