I am a diehard Gator, and I will admit that Tebow probably should not be on the first team. But not on the second team? Okay fine, I can get over that if, and that is a huge if, if it is to Colt Mccoy or Graham Harrell (sp?). They had great years too and played against good teams. But for Tebow to not even get the second team due to a QB who played conference games against San Jose State, Idaho, New Mexico State, Utah State and powerhouse Nevada, give me a break. Tebow's backup would have put up huge numbers against those teams. This is complete hogwash. Why not the kid at Baylor, he was also a freshman and he played against good teams week in and week out.
I think TSN is intentionally...

I was just re-looking at the list. I wonder if somehow the second team freshmen list got inserted here instead of the second team all american kids. I know the two defensive kids from Miami were on the all freshmen team, either 1st or 2nd team. And so was the kid from Michigan listed right between them.

Does anybody know if these kids are all freshmen?

Nice catch. This is the wrong list. They are all freshman from what I can tell. Nice editting from the guys at SN.

Am I out of line for suggesting that Percy Harvin should be on the 2nd team? I can certainly understand Crabtree and Bryant ahead of him on the 1st team but not this omission.

We apologize for posting the wrong list initially. We mistakenly put the all-freshman team in this article rather than the overall all-Americans.

Wow, being a little bit rough on the Beaver there arent ya Ward???

A mistake was made, the mistake was corrected, and they publicly admitted it and apologized.. I can promise you ESPN or Fox Sports would never admit a mistake, and mistakes there are... And if they do admit to a mistake, the retraction is burried so deep in the web site that by the time you find it, my four year old will be getting ready for her High School Graduation!!!! I say good job TSN, at least you fix your mistakes and don't just cover them up and forget them.

I didn't mention the four letter network or the sly animal network, did I?

I should, however, have stated the following:

I love TSN, and don't really read the other network's websites. However, due to continued and repetitive mistakes in reporting, broken links, and a seemingly carefree attitude on the part of the editors, I believe they should be fired. Period.

Sorry, I understand the man crush on Tebow, but he was better last year, and despite a great year this year, he started off slow.

McCoy should be the 2nd team qb. Put the stats head to head, and it isn't even close. That was my understanding of why you picked Bradford, I guess you abandoned that rational for the 2nd team.

No offense to Gator fans, Tebow is a great guy and qb, just this one year, McCoy had the better year.
