2012 Preseason All-Big Ten and All-SEC Teams
A couple days ago I started releasing my Preseason All Conference teams and today I will finish with the All-Big 10 and All-SEC teams.
9 of the 12 Big Ten teams have at least one 1st-Team selection on my Preseason All-Big 10 Team. 2x defending champ Wisconsin leads the way with seven 1st-team selections while Michigan St, Nebraska and Ohio St each have four 1st-Team players. The Spartans actually lead the way with an overall 16 players followed by Ohio St who has 15.
11 of the 14 teams in the SEC are represented with at least one 1st-Team selection. It should come as no surprise that Alabama and LSU lead the way with six players each while Arkansas, Auburn and Georgia each have three 1st-Team selections. LSU overall has the most players with 17 selections while Bama has 12 followed by Florida and Georgia who have 11.
