He's better than Cam Newton, and look at what that criminal is doing in the NFL.  I think RGIII should be the the # 1 pick.  He throws better than Cam, run's better than Cam, is smarter than Cam, and is a good person.  What took the media this long to give him his props?  Luck's a great Amish qb.

Surprised at RG3 making team over Luck or Kellen Moore. Guess he's the hot name suddenly. Seems to be many judging Bama off one game offensively against unreal Def. I hate Bama, but anyone can see how good T. Richardson is! As for the LB's, Upshaw is a beast and Kuechly makes almost every tackle for BC. He's the only guy out there and still makes plays. Waiting to see the 2nd team and should see more West Coast players.

Can't possibly have a problem with Richardson as All-American, can you?  Really?  The other Alabama guy on O is on the line...blocking for Richardson...so why doesn't that make sense?

You can certainly see what conference pays the most. Two Alabama offensive players named All-American? Thats 18% of the best offensive platers in the country, play on the 30th ranked offense?????????????????? How many did the score on LSU 6? 

Absolute joke anything Alabama gets this year as far a trophy's and awards is a total joke, quite possible the most over-hyped school in College Football history. Georgia Fricken Southern moved the ball up and down the field on them and scord 21.
