2011 Preseason All-ACC and All-Big 12 Teams!

In today’s blog I will continue releasing my Preseason All Conference teams with the All-ACC and All-Big 12 teams.

In the ACC, Florida St returns 16 starters from last year’s 10-4 team and lead the way with seven 1st-Team selections and have severall All-American candidates including DE Brandon Jenkins. Defending ACC Champ Virginia Tech has five 1st-Teamers including CB Jayron Hosley. The Hurricanes also have five 1st-Team selections including three players on defense that each of them has All-American potential.

The Big 12 loses Nebraska and Colorado this year and that opened the door for several schools to have multiple 1st-Team selections. Naturally Oklahoma leads the way with seven including All-American candidates Landry Jones, Ryan Broyles and Travis Lewis. Texas A&M and Oklahoma St are represented well with five 1st-Team players each and are led by their star WR’s in OSU’s Justin Blackmon and A&M’s Jeff Fuller. Missouri and Texas each have four players as well.

*A quick note: Our Preseason All-Conferences teams were sent to the press on Friday May 13 before Oklahoma LB Austin Box unfortunately passed away and we have decided to keep him on the list to signify the loss.

Please check PhilSteele.com everyday to get my Top 30 Countdown which continued yesterday with #21 Houston.

    Blake Gideon first team? Is this Phil’s attempt at humor? That guy is a joke.  Slow and always out of position.

    And Malcom Brown is first team RB? The kid just went to senior prom and he is expected to be the class of the B12? Behind that O line?

    BTW, you might want to drop Austin Box. Not likely he’ll do anything for OU as he recently died. Just sayin’.

    Gary,

    I appreciate the feedback but have several responses.

    First while Blake Gideon struggled LY, there were numerous articles this spring that he has improved immensely and even with his “struggles”, he was still HM Big 12 and was the Captain as a JR.

    LY Marcus Lattimore from South Carolina came in as the PS#1RB (same as Malcolm Brown is TY) behind a mediocre OL that hadn’t produced a 1,000 yd rusher since 2000 and rushed for well over 1,000 yds and was on many Post-Season All-American lists let alone only All-Conference.

    Our magazine went to press on May 13 before Austin Box unfortunately passed away so we decided to keep him on there to signify the loss just as it said in the blog.

    Thanks again,

    Phil

    Good stuff. Going all the way down to 4th team in a single conference is about as “in-depth” as it gets.

    i would like to know why is tony jefferson not on any of these teams. i think he is a big time playmaker on defence.
