The Best of the Best

It's finally over.

College football's regular season has already come and gone, and now we're just stuck waiting for the playoff to start. Oh, wait, about that. No, we're not, because Division I doesn't have a playoff. You know, kids would have to miss too much class and all of that. Regardless, it was an action-packed regular season completed with a ton of upsets, some Cinderella teams, some teams that ended up being fool's gold and a Heisman race that's as competitive as any in quite some time. With that said, it's time to unveil my 2011 NCAA Division I All-America team. If you make it all the way to the end, there will even be a Heisman ballot (if people actually asked me to vote on this, which, well, that's for another day).

    Honey Badger doesn't give a shit about this team, but he's on it.
