ALL MDG Team: BlogPoll All-American Team Ballot Entry

The innagural Blogpoll All-American team will be voted by the blogpoll voters. The rules for the team are as follows:

1. Pick two teams of players as follows:

- One QB
- Any combination of five skill players (RBs, WRs and TEs)
- Five offensive linemen (preferrably divided by specific position - two
tackles, two guards and a center)
- Three or four defensive linemen (again, preferrably divided into ends and
tackles)
- Three or four linebackers (must jibe w/ the number of D-linemen to equal a
front seven, i.e., you can't pick four linemen and four linebackers)
- Two cornerbacks
- Two safeties
- One kicker
- One punter
- One kick returner
- One punt returner

2. Each first team vote is worth two points; each second team vote is worth one.
Final teams determined by most points at each position (duh).

3. Voters can't vote for players they didn't see play. Highlights don't count.
For example, I missed out on West Coast teams Oregon, Washington State, Oregon
State and UCLA this season, so I can't vote for Haloti Ngata, Jerome Harrison,
Mike Hass or Maurice Drew. If a voter somehow didn't see USC, he can't vote for
Reggie Bush or Prince Leinart.

This does NOT mean that the player you're voting for had to have an All-America
type game when you watched him; virtually every offensive lineman would be
disqualified if voters were required to specifically have noticed every player
and ignore all media hype. Statistics and other information outside of direct
observation will be required for the vast majority of picks.
