Lamar Jackson named 2nd Team AP All-American, and that’s crazy.

I’m the biggest UofL hater out there, and seeing Lamar Jackson fumble the UK-Louisville game away made me cry tears of joy.

But the kid is legit. And placing him lower than 1st Team anything is just crazy.

AP recently listed him as a 2nd Team All-American for 2017, and the Twitter world was not happy, to say the least.

Bleacher Report also listed the top 100 players in college football for 2017, and Jackson was ranked No. 10 behind QB’s Sam Darnold and Baker Mayfield.

With little surprise, the Cardinal quarterback had something to say about the low rankings.

(Insert fumble joke here.)

Jackson was named the ACC Preseason Player of the Year, preseason watch list for the Maxwell Award (college player of the year), the Davey O’Brien Award (top college quarterback), and the Manning Award (top quarterback), so don’t feel too sorry for him.

That being said, both AP and Bleacher Report’s lists are ridiculous. Hate the team or not, Jackson took the college football scene by storm last year, and putting him behind any QB in America right now is just silly.

    Jack have you lost your mind? Lamar had the Heisman wrapped up due to his fast start at the beginning of the season. Over the last half of the year he and the team stumbled. Baker Mayfield is twice the QB Jackson is. Hell I’ll be willing to bet that there will be 2-3 QB’s in the SEC that will have better years then Jackson.

    There was a lot of voter remorse on the Heisman last year. Watson should have won. Darnold is a solid favorite this year. I think there is a good chance Jackson won’t be the dirty birds’ starter by the time we play them this season.

    You guys are nuts if you think Jackson isn’t a top flight college QB, or that he won’t keep his starting job through the year. He’s a special talent.

    Big Cats fan here, but real recognize real.

    Well it’s good to see UK fans don’t just think their own QB won’t make it through the year… wow.

    Makes me think if we had Lamar they’d still be calling for his head after the way he finished.
