All that remains of the 2012 college football season are the bowls, which means it’s time to select our All-SEC team.
In this league, that’s never an easy task. There are more deserving players than there are spots. In selecting the team, we placed a heavy emphasis on performance in big games and how a player impacted his team both on and off the field. When it was close, we looked at SEC-only statistics as the tiebreaker.
