UF safety Ahmad Black got shafted

GAINESVILLE -- Ahmad Black was robbed.

What an absolute oversight by Southeastern Conference sportswriters to relegate Florida strong safety Ahmad Black to honorable mention all-SEC. Black had six interceptions and played his position next to perfect. He should have been first team.

Tim Tebow, Percy Harvin, Phil Trautwein and Brandon Spikes did make the AP all-SEC first team. Tebow was also voted the league's offensive player of the year.  Harvin showed up again on the second team offense, this time as a wide receiver. Harvin was the first-team all-purpose player.

Jermaine Cunningham, Carlos Dunlap and Joe Haden made second team all-SEC defense. Black was honorable mention and these guys made second team? The only safety better than Black this season in the SEC was Tennessee's Eric Berry, who was named the SEC's defensive player of the year.

Brandon James, Mike and Maurkice Pouncey, Jason Watkins and Jonathan Phillips also made the honorable mention list.

The entire team is right here. CLICK ME! Thoughts, anyone? I'm sure there are a few people out there with an opinion on this one.

Oh, by the way, I checked with Stubhub.com today. There was over 8,000 tickets available for the BCS national championship game on Monday. Average price as of Monday afternoon ... $770. Tickets were going for as low as $450 each, so some of you guys better jump on that. Probably not going to find it for much cheaper. The Gator Club of Miami is auctioning off two tickets. You can bid for that right here.

Anyone out there with tickets, I would love to hear how you got yours and how much you paid. Leave a comment. Anyone out there planning on buying tickets from a scalper at Dolphin Stadium?
