The college football regular season has come to a close and awards and honors are beginning to be handed out. Today, the most prestigious college football conference in the land — the Southeastern Conference — had their All-SEC team unveiled by the Associated Press for the nation to see.

The All-SEC team is loaded with talent from top to bottom and features many future NFL stars.

One of the nice gestures from the conference was to include injured South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore among the honorable mentions for the squad.

Without further introduction, here is your first-team All-SEC Team for 2012:

    I may be a Mississippi State fan but Moncrief of Ole Miss should have been on one of those teams.

  • Chuck Paris

    Donte Moncrief should at LEAST be a second team guy. He DOMINATED some of the top DB’s in the SEC.

    Justin Hunter of Tennessee is definately a 1st team all sec Wide Receiver.
