Rebel Roundup: Accolades and a Huge (get it?) Loss

New, 15 comments
Three Rebels selected to play in the Under Armour Senior Bowl - Michael Oher, Peria Jerry, and Ashlee Palmer have been selected to play in the Senior Bowl which will air on the NFL Network on Saturday, January 24. In all, 22 players representing the SEC will be a part of the bowl. I'm not really sure how the whole thing lines up (North vs. South?), but if Oher gets the golden opportunity to "accidentally" not block Jerry and/or Palmer when they come on the blitz against John Parker Wilson or Graham Harrell I'd be incredibly amused. As you may recall, the last Rebel to be selected for the Senior Bowl was Patrick Willis, whose Senior Bowl highlights can be seen here.

Marshay Green named to ESPN.com's All-Bowl Team - Citing his Pick-six and shoulda-been-a-touchdown punt return, ESPN's Mark Schlabach has selected Marshay Green as one of the bowl season's best cornerbacks. We at the Cup have said it before, and we'll say it again: Green and Dexter McCluster are, pound-for-pound, the toughest "lil bastids" in the SEC.

Tracy Rocker to be named DL coach at Auburn - I'm certain that this isn't new news to most of you, but Tracy Rocker is heading to his alma mater to coach. I personally can't blame the guy. He obviously still has strong feelings for Auburn and they're offering to him an incredible amount of money for a position coach (rumored to be upwards of $400,000). For him, the decision was an easy one to make. Best of luck to you, Coach Rocker.... unless it's against the Rebs.
