Borderline inexcusable

Living in the Athens area grants me the right to say this, but the copy editor who botched this needs to be immediately reprimanded ...

Ohio State linebacker James Laurinaitis became the second college football player to be a three-time AP All-American, joining Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford and star receiver Michael Crabtree on the first team released Tuesday. ...

The only other player to make the AP first-team three times was Pittsburgh offensive lineman Bill Fralic (1982-84), according to STATS LLC.


Um, really? ...

Among the other players to make the AP first-team three times were San Diego State running back Marshall Faulk (1991-93), Pittsburgh offensive lineman Bill Fralic (1982-84), Georgia running back Herschel Walker (1980-82) and Pittsburgh defensive end Hugh Green (1978-80).

Pollock picked up AP honors in 2002 and 2004, though he did earn AFCA honors in 2003 making him Georgia's other three-time All-American. But for the AP, he just got it twice.
