Clowney Left Off All-SEC by 20 Writers

South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney is the consensus top defensive player in college football right now after 13 sacks and 23.5 tackles for loss last season. Yet somehow, there are 20 writers — among the 243 members of the media who have a vote — that don’t think he’s one of the top two defensive ends in the SEC.

We understand if there are some members of the media who think he’s overhyped, but to leave him off their preseason All-SEC teams entirely? Wherever these writers have been the last two years, it apparently hasn’t been watching any SEC games whatsoever.
