    Good list. As w/ any "all-time" lists, deserving players are omitted. How about Andy Hamilton, Ken Kavanaugh (WR), Brad Boyd (TE), Juan Betanzos (PK), Ray Coates (P), Henry Thomas, AJ Duhe (DL), YA Tittle (QB), Dalton Hilliard, Terry Robiskie, Steve Van Buren, Doc Fenton (RB), Eric Hill, Rydell Melancon, Toby Caston (LB)?

    All great names. Trust me, most of those crossed my mind. I just limited my selections to:

    1. All-Americans get top consideration
    2. Multiple All-SEC selection picks got the nod over those without

    I agree, wholeheartedly, that the above players, at the least, be considered "Honorable Mention" (on my list anyways).

    We've done this before and most of the young guys pick players they have seen in the last five years. That is understandable, but an all-time team must include the stars of yesteryear, many of who were all-americans and hall-of-famers. Rohan, Toefield, and Domanick Davis were studs, but they just can't match the accomplishments of the men on this list.

    Red's all-time team, 3 deep:

    QB -- Y.A. Tittle, Bert Jones, Tommy Hodson
    RB -- Charles Alexander, Jimmy Taylor, Kevin Faulk
    RB -- Billy Cannon, Dalton Hilliard, Steve Van Buren
    WR -- Josh Reed, Wendell Davis, Michael Clayton
    WR -- Ken Kavanaugh, Eric Martin, Andy Hamilton
    OT -- Robert Dugas, Louis Williams, Ralph Norwood
    OG -- Eric Andolsek, Tyler Lafauci, Mike Demarie
    C -- Kevin Mawae, Nacho Albergamo, Moonie Winston
    OG -- Alan Faneca, Bo Strange, Remi Prudhomme
    OT -- Lance Smith, George Rice, Chuck Wiley
    TE -- Gaynell Tinsley, David Lafleur, Brian Kinchen

    DE -- A.J. Duhe, Karl Wilson, Billy Truax
    DT -- Leonard Marshall, Chad Lavalais, Ramsey Dardar
    DT -- Anthony McFarland, Henry Thomas, Ronnie Estay
    DE -- Dan Alexander, Ken Bordelon, Gabe Northern
    OLB -- Michael Brooks, Lyman White, Eric Hill
    ILB -- Mike Anderson, Warren Capone, Toby Caston
    OLB -- Brady James, Lew Sibley, Albert Richardson
    CB -- Tommy Casanova, Willie Teal, Greg Jackson
    SS -- Jerry Stovall, James Britt, Liffort Hobley
    FS -- Mike Williams, Eugene Daniel, Jeffrey Dale
    CB -- Clinton Burell, Chris Williams, Marcus Quinn

    K -- David Browndyke, Juan Betanzos, John Corbello
    P -- Chad Kessler, Tommy Davis, Matt DeFrank
