Connor Shaw didnt receive enough votes to make the preseason All-SEC team, but he did boast something over the other eight quarterbacks who attended SEC Media Days.
He was the only one who has jumped out of a plane.
The other eight were each asked over three days in Hoover if theyve ever skydived, as Shaw did on June 22. Each said no, although some had a quantifier.
James Franklin, Missouri: No, but I would like to.
Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M: No, not yet. Its on my bucket list.
Zach Mettenberger, LSU: No, but Ive been trying to. I havent been able to find the time yet.
Aaron Murray, Georgia: No. Im scared of heights. My sister has been bugging me to do it.
A.J. McCarron, Alabama: No. I dont like heights.
Floridas Jeff Driskel, Ole Miss Bo Wallace and Mississippi States Tyler Russell each just said no.
