Gary Parrish chastised the SEC media for not voting Anthony Davis to the First Team All-SEC. And I would have to agree.
Now I know what you’re thinking: Who cares, Parrish?
Answer: I care. And you do, too. That’s why you’re reading this. And though I realize there are no hard and fast rules to voting for preseason teams, they should, in my opinion, try to serve as predictions for how the postseason team might look. Using that as the gauge, not having Davis on the SEC First Team is undeniably stupid. He’s the most talented player on the most talented team in the league. Like I once wrote about Wall, you’ll see in time, I’m certain. And please don’t mention how “Davis hasn’t even played a college game yet,” because that’s the dumbest thing college basketball fans annually spend October saying about incoming freshmen. Remember, Jared Sullinger had never played a college game, either … until he did. Then he got 19 points and 14 rebounds in Ohio State’s season-opening win, and that shouldn’t have surprised anybody.
You’re preaching to the choir, Gary.
