FOOTBALL: Coaches All-SEC team

July 21, 2008

The Coaches’ preseason All-SEC team just arrived to SEC in-boxes near you. Ole Miss has four guys on the three teams: OL Michael Oher, DE Greg Hardy, DT Peria Jerry and OL John Jerry.

Oher and Hardy are unanimous first-team members. Brothers Peria and John Jerry made the second and third teams respectively. No mention of WR Mike Wallace.

It’s interesting to note that while Hardy obviously gained the attention of every SEC coach, the league’s sack leader last season will begin August camp second on the depth chart.

The other SEC coaches were able to see him on Saturdays only and didn’t have to manage his eccentricities.

The guess here is that Houston Nutt and his staff will get Hardy’s attention and that Hardy will be in the thick of things defensively.

The complete team should be available soon at and will appear in tomorrow’s Daily Journal print edition as well.

The media’s preseason All-SEC team will be announced Friday at the conclusion of media days.
