This has been my contention with there being "A Conflict of Interest" with Phil Savage being the SB Director. He will always overlook other players IMO to have the Big Name schools represented.
He should run the SB or be the Side-Line reporter for UA..........NOT BOTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Preston Dial was also a "hometown hero", playing high school ball at UMS-Wright
Class of '14. Go Jags! South in your Mouth!
I thought of that too, but look at Southern Miss getting a player in. The Sun Belt was better than C-USA and Jake had better stats.
The USM player, linebacker Jamie Collins, is also on the roster for the East West Shrine game scheduled for Jan. 19th in Tampa.

No need for me to be there either....sad for someone who is a good person who left everything on the field game in and game out.

1/19/13 5p.m.cst ESPN 2. Plus 4 hours of live practice Thurs.on ESPNU.This might work out better for BJ and Jake.They might stand out more at this game.Think i might check out Montego's for the game.I can eat good since i won't have to buy a ticket or pay for parking at the SB.lol
GOOD LUCK #1 AND #42

It looks like both Jake Johnson and BJ Scott have been invited to the NFLPA Bowl...
I've seen a lot of request for JJ on the Senior Bowl facebook page.Keep posting ya never know what might happen.Someone might pull a hamstring.Do it for USA football and Jake.If EA sports listened the SB might too.
I'm going to go ahead and be "That Guy" - sorry BIR.
Loyalties aside, I don't see why it was a big deal that JJ didn't get selected. Is he entitled a spot since he plays for the hometown team? No.
Are there other SB players that he is obviously better than? No. The USM kid beat out JJ in most stats besides tackles.
Should South fans not attend the Senior Bowl because they're butthurt that a South player didn't get picked? No, you should go and support and celebrate this great Mobile event. This is no different than last year or 5 years ago - just go and have a good time. Geez.
There, I said it.

Beef, I disagree and I will not be attending...There have been other players invited with lesser stats and were invited just because they played for either Ala or Auburn...You are telling me that the leading tackler from a D1 conference not a FCS conference was not qualified to be invited....The SBC finished .500 in bowl competition...and oh by the way you have a player invited that did not complete this season due to an injury...played at AU has he been medically cleared to play?
As I said before, I will not be attending. Call it what you will. I doubt a few South Alabama fans not attending will make much of a difference. If you accept one of, if not, the best player in our programs history being slighted for an all-star game bring played in his home stadium then so be it.
Someone posted the info for the NFLPA game on the SB facebook page.
Now that's what I am talking about...if we don't ever do anything to get noticed then we never will....
Jags for Life....the RED WHITE AND BLUE....
Tell it like it is.
GO JAGS !
I'm agreeing with you on this one Beef. I'm surprised to hear some of you saying that since Jake didn't get picked you won't attend. I mean really, that sounds childish to me.
I believe Phil Savage has one goal and that is to put the highest rated players in....the ones that the coaches and scouts want to see. He's not going to play favorites like they have in the past and could care less what conference a player comes from.
I've heard the scouts think Jake is somewhat stiff and may struggle in pass coverage. Does that mean he's not a great player and won't get a chance...absolutely not. Will he get drafted, doubt it. If he was then there would be a demand by the nfl coaches and scouts to see him in this game. All of the hollering got Courtney in last year and to be honest he really didn't deserve to get in. In the end I thought it killed his chances in getting drafted because he really had a poor week. The senior bowl isn't just about stats...if you want it to be the top bowl game out there for seniors than you have to put the highest rated Nfl prospects in it. I believe that's what Phil is trying to do.
Was it just a tease by the Senior Bowl to put Johnson and Scott on the watch list.Johnson had his best year against tougher competition.My first Jag game was Ga.St.that day changed me from a Bama fan to a Jag fan .Johnson came to a school that he had probably never heard of with a new program.I feel like i owe him something for that.If it's posting on the SB facebook for him that's the least i can do.If that's childish so be it.Come to think of it when i'm at a Jag game i feel like a kid again.The only reason i would put up with the drunks at the SB would be to see my favorite player #42 Sure i'm unreasonable i'm a Jaguar fanatic.
GO JAGS !!!!!
Look, that's great if you want to post positive
things about JJ's accomplishments at South. I'm all for it, the guys deserves everything he has coming to him. He a great person and is the kind of teammate all coaches want around. I'm not trying to insult anybody but yes if you say things like "if my guy isn't picked than I'm not going to the game" that sounds like the attitude I teach my kids not to have.
Jags fans got their wishes last year, this year it didn't go our way..oh well. Let's give Phil the benefit of the doubt. We've got a pretty good one in Enrique Williams and I have a feeling this is the guy you may get to see signing programs and making tackles at the SB.
Quick Six played in the game 2 years ago. Do you think the game would be sold out if AU or AU were not represented? Leave one of them out and those folks stay home. No, IMO, they have not always had players that should have been invited. I have to work the pre-game for the SB but will not stay for the game.
Wow, doesn't seem like Courtney's been gone that long...thanks for the correction. From listening to Phil on the radio and knowing how serious he is about this job I really don't think he's going to take a guy from Auburn or Alabama if their not deserving. That may have happened in the past but doubt you'll see a lot of that in the future. That being said when you have 4 and 5 star athletes across the board on your roster than the odds are pretty good that you'll have players in the game from those schools every year and that does make it easier to sell tickets. If I'm Jake I'd be pretty happy going out to LA this time of the year.
I'm a lot more concerned about our new defensive coordinator and what's in store for next year. I think we will all see just how important Bill Clark was to this team. Personally I think it's going to be a rough year.....hope not but that's just me being realistic.
The TE from AU did he play this season? Is he medically cleared to play? Could that slot have been an invite for someone else to play in the SB....
In life I have found we can all make justifications for the decisions we make...
