    Are we in league with Duke as the only teams without a 1st or 2nd teamer selected? And Duke has more on the 3rd team than us?

    List is garbage

    Not mentioning Lance Austin or Justin Thomas is a complete outrage.

    I stopped giving two turtle öööös about those lists ever since they left Shaq Mason off in 2014.

    This is easy. While Moses parted the Red Sea and led his people to the Promised Land, he was not allowed to enter it himself. The committee was given a mandate from God.

    Rodwell got shafted too, had the 3rd highest average ypp and was tied for the 3rd longest punt, but lost out to the 6th and 8th highest average punters for 3rd team and honorable mention.

    The ACC has got alotta talent. More to the point, I'm sure these players realize that beating UGA at Athens twice in a row will memorialize them in Tech lore much much longer than the opinions of mid-Atlantic media.

    ACC has a lot of impressive players, not a snub at all.

    JT is just behind Watson and Jackson, likely two Heisman QBs, along with Trubinsky, potential NFL QB who had a really good year. I am not sure if JT recorded a win against any of those 3 QBs in his career, though he might have won against Jackson if we played them.

    Shaq was all-ACC in 2013 and 2014, first-team and second-team respectively. Again, the case of having a lot of impressive talent. For example, Tre Jackson was ahead of him in 2014, and they both got drafted by Pats, and they both played a lot as rookies. Maybe, we can argue that they are equal talents, but still not a snub.

    I'm a Clemson fan, but 3 Clemson OL's on the first team is a joke. As good as their skill players are, they still can't consistently establish the run.
