    No Amari Cooper?

    I'm also curious as to how Jordan Reed wasn't a unanimous first-team selection. There's no tight end in the SEC even close to him.

    Not even honorable mention for A.J Johnson from Tennessee? The guy had 138 tackles and 6 touchdowns from the wildcat on offense.

    Cooper probably deserved honorable mention, but it's tough to make a case against those first 4.

    Sumlin getting COTY is an outrage.

    I was in Franklin's corner last year and believe he deserves some form of recognition... but did you guys predict A&M would win 10 (possibly 11) games their first year in the West?

    I had them winning 8-9 games and that was before the season not having a clue about Johnny Manziel shattering SEC records.

    So the Aggies go from 7 wins last season, to 10-11 wins in a new (and much tougher) conference, with a freshman QB, and Sumlin doesn't get any credit for that?

    Again, I'm not taking anything away from Franklin. But you guys called Sumlin winning an "outrage."

    I'm not saying its an outrage. But I think that Sumlin is getting too much credit for it.... Texas A&M probably had an easier schedule this year than they did last year as well.

    Florida
    @ SMU
    South Carolina State
    Arkansas
    Ole Miss
    @ LA Tech
    LSU
    @ Auburn
    @ Miss State
    @ Alabama
    Sam Houston State
    Missouri

    That is 8 games that are against non-BCS teams or ones that are 6-6 or worse. If you had told me before the season that Arkansas and Auburn would both be below .500 then I would have likely told you that Texas A&M would win 9 games. The win over Alabama the only unexpected win.

    Not only that but watching Johnny Manziel play .... I'm sorry but Sumlin can only take so much credit for that to be honest. Johnny Manziel has more to do with them being 10-2 than Sumlin.

    I think it is the other way around for Franklin at Vanderbilt. He only has a couple players that are projected to the NFL and went 8-4 taking Vanderbilt to its 2nd consecutive bowl game something that had never been done in school history....

    Not saying Sumlin deserves all the credit, but he has a track record. He won at Houston (1 win from a BCS appearance, and they finished ranked for the first time since Andre Ware was the QB). Even had Case Keenum getting Heisman talk. Then Sumlin goes to the Aggies and has them into position to compete for a national championship in 2013, with yet another QB in the Heisman race. Looks like a difference maker to me. Franklin is doing great work, and so is Sumlin.

    I am calling it an outrage. It's despicable that the major litmus test is just raw wins and not how many wins you got with what you had.

    Yeah, Sumlin is doing a great job, I'm not saying he's not. However, what takes more talent? Taking that A&M team that already has tremendous talent and a rich history to 10 wins? Or taking Vanderbilt to literally its best season in ****ing 100 years?

    If you say A&M, I'm sorry, you're wrong.

    Even if you tried to approach it from the angle of recruiting, Franklin is smashing everyone. What's harder to do? Recruit in a state full of people who never want to leave Texas and grew up loving A&M? Or recruit at an academic school everyone laughs at?

    As personal note I love Texas, so don't take that as an insult.

    I mean, again, it's much more about the difficulty of what you've accomplished as far as I'm concerned. A&M is no doubt a title contender for the next few years. Sumlin is a large part of that.

    It's just an outright disgrace that in order for Franklin to get to the point where even our own ****ing conference will recognize him, he'll have to get to a BCS bowl. It's an absolute disgrace.

    Franklin's work at Vanderbilt has been overshadowed. I said it last year, finally saw some toughness in that uniform that hadn't been there in forever. And this year, it looked like they gave every legit opponent besides UGA a fight to the end. Just felt it was a little unfair to make it seem like Sumlin was just along for the ride at College Station. But make no mistake, I wasn't trying to dismiss the Commodores' progress.
