LITTLE ROCK — Racetrack lingo is useful when attempting to identify the 1-2 finishers in preseason voting for All-SEC quarterback.
Pursuing that football exacta includes handicapping via past performances, unearthing a viable longshot and employing tepid to describe a lukewarm favorite.
Unlike 2019, when Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and Georgia’s Jake Fromm were justifiably 1-2 on the preseason all-conference team, none of the candidates have a resume that begets confidence. Both Tagovailoa and Fromm were upstaged by LSU’S Joe Burrow during the season, but No. 1 this December could be more surprising — maybe even an athlete who has never taken a snap in the SEC.
