Alright I know that nobody care except me, but how the hell is Mason Crosby the kicker for the 3rd-team? Despite the fact that the Buffs were terrible this year, he is arguably the best kicker in the history of collge football.


I love Crosby too, and hope the Dolphins draft him based on his big leg potential, but when you go 19/28 (67.9%) on the year, it is hard to put you better than third on the All-American team; especially when the 2nd teamer kicked 87% and the 1st teamer kicked 87%, including 19/20 within 39-yards and 2/2 from 50+. The only reason Crosby probably even got third was that 7 of his 9 misses were from 50+, therefore cutting him some slack.

Not a single defensive player from FSU, damn.


Buster Davis should have been at least third.


How Buster Davis didn't make it is beyond me. Wow.

And what's worse is Tom Zbikowski making 3rd team all American! This guy even got burnt by UNC recievers and Lord knows what USC and UM did to him. He'll be lucky if he gets drafted in the 3rd round because the only way he plays is on 3rd and long situations. He's just way too slow to be a every down safety.
