Talk about a jarring Monday morning. The Associated Press released its All-American team and tailback Ronald Jones made the third team. And . . . cornerback Jack Jones made the third team. Start the Heisman campaign.
I suspect Jack Jones was endorsed by at least one West region voter who helped select the team. And people see he had four interceptions. If he made the first team, he could get a plaque at the McKay Center.
In case you don’t believe, full team after the jump:
