Just two years removed from Steve Spurrier not listing Florida’s Tim Tebow as his All-SEC quarterback, we have another tempest in teapot regarding a league QB and an all-league team.
The initial All-SEC electronic ballot that the SEC sent to media members over the past couple of weeks did not include the name of Stephen Garcia. Spurrier’s own quarterback — therefore — isn’t likely to make the All-SEC team which will be announced at week’s end. (Unless several voters waited to send in corrected ballots.)
Chuck Dunlap of the SEC office tried to put the kibosh on any conspiracy theories via Twitter yesterday:
“Let’s put this non-story to bed. A technical issue on our end originally left Stephen Garcia off the preseason All-SEC ballot sent to media.”
Upon learning of the ballot issue, some online sites suggested that the SEC did not want to honor a player with Garcia’s track record for minor off-the-field bumbles.
