College Football Insiders’ All-Decade Team

New York, NY—College Football Insiders releases its All Decade Team, spanning the years 2000-2009. Eleven players on offense, 11 on defense and four on special teams are honored as first team and second team selections. An additional 33 players received honorable mention honors. The first team unit covers 19 teams from six different conferences. There were four teams with multiple players on the first team.

Tennessee and Alabama each had two players represented. Oklahoma and Miami (FL) led the way with three each. USC’s Reggie Bush made it as a first team running back and punt returner. Among the first and second teams, Oklahoma had six players selected. Miami had four players on the College Football Insiders’ All-Decade Team. USC had four, covering five slots thanks to Reggie Bush being named twice (offense and special teams). Alabama, Michigan and Ohio State were represented with three players. Other schools with multiple selections are Iowa, Arkansas, Wake Forest and Tennessee. Utah’s Jordan Gross is the only player from a non-BCS conference to make the first or second team. Texas had the most honorable mentions with five.
