Phil Steele Puts Numerous Falcons on All-MAC team

Phil Steele, the guru of the obsessive, can't get enough college football fan, is filling the summer with pre-season all-conference teams and the like.  His All-MAC team came out last week and has some prominent notices for some of the Falcon players.

In fact, he has 17 Falcons on the list which is the most in the conference.  UT was second with 14.

A couple of notes.

  • Even with 17, I think BG's corners could have gotten a little more credit.  
  • For this to be a special team, they need Shaun Joplin to earn that 4th team designation and Gallon to earn higher.
  • The uncertainty over Samuel is obviously impacting the RB position.  Nothwithstanding that, BG was 7th in MAC play in yards per carry last year, and we'll need a top 5 running game, even if we spread the carries out so much that no one gets honored individually.
