Michael Oher and Peria Jerry were named AP All Americans today.

First team, lawya!

No word yet on whether Millsaps quarterback Juan Joseph was honored as an All American.

Snubs are in the past, though, and Oher and Jerry are phenomenal football players. Oher, a likely first-round draft pick last year, showed his true Rebel spirit by returning for his senior season. And Peria? Just look at that beautiful man.

Both of these guys are going to play for a long time and make a great deal of money in the National Football League. Also, Graham Harrell, who clearly is reading the Cup in preparation for the Cotton Bowl, I am legally obligated to warn you that Mr. Jerry may appear differently than the afore-linked photograph in real life.

Congratulations to the pair of Rebels who are the first duo from fair Oxford to make the AP First Team in the same year. Teams with multiple first-team selections were Alabama (with three - Antoine Caldwell, Andre Smith, and Terrence Cody), USC, Missouri, and Ole Miss (all with two selections).
