The readers have spoken, and Arkansas defensive end Jake Bequette was voted as our last SEC Super Senior.

With more than 6,400 votes cast in our Super Senior poll, Bequette came away with 39 percent of the vote.

Well done readers, I'm siding with you on this one. Bequette had another solid year for the Razorbacks, and he didn't even play the entire season. He wasn't always healthy, but despite playing in just nine games, Bequette ranked sixth in the SEC during the regular season in sacks, with eight.

When Bequette is on the field, Arkansas' defense is just that much better. He's the ultimate leader and wreaks havoc on opposing backfields. I'm still pretty certain the hit he put on South Carolina's Connor Shaw in early November triggered the tremor we felt in the press box at Razorback Stadium.

Coming in second was Alabama cornerback DeQuan Menzie. With players like Tyrann Mathieu, Morris Claiborne and Mark Barron in the league, Menzie was often overshadowed. Menzie was superb in coverage this season. He had just one interception, but defended 12 passes. He also was fifth on the team with 37 tackles.

Tennessee defensive tackle Malik Jackson was third, getting 18 percent of the vote. He might have been the Vols' best player in 2011. He was an excellent leader for Tennessee and also knew his way around the field. He was third on the team with 56 tackles and led the Vols with 11 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks. He was also the leader in quarterback hurries, with 10.

Mississippi State running back Vick Ballard was fourth, gaining nine percent of the vote, and Florida running back Chris Rainey was last with seven percent of the vote.

Kick fucking ass, sir.  I admire any that choose to serve but especially those that have had a successful college and professional career, then choose to serve.

He comes back and goes to law school like his father and grandfather and he's damn near a lock.

Anybody know if he is going to OCS?  Seems the logical thing to do with his background.

That seems to be his plan, according to his dad, Jay.  We work in the same building downtown. His dad is a lawyer too.  I asked him about Jake a couple of months ago.  He said he had been attending Georgetown Law School, but met Tom Cotton (I don't recall the circumstances).  He said Jake has political aspirations and Cotton recommended going to the Army now and then coming back to law school.

Well that is interesting.  As I understand it that is the path that Cotton took (is he a lawyer?), but it isn't a traditional or common path.

That is pretty good advice. It was well known that he comes from a family of lawyers, so I honestly figured this move would be to check that box then go into politics.

Yes he is a lawyer, like Harvard or somewhere impressive.

HIs dad is an awfully nice guy and a good lawyer.  I am sure Jake will do well at whatever he tries.

Cotton was a Harvard College and then Harvard Law grad that joined as infantry.

A lot of people here don't like him from a political slant, but that takes huge nuts.  When it comes to foreign affairs and the military he pretty much has the easiest comeback, that he was actually there.
