In Which Our Hero Selects All-America Teams


As the season winds to a close, thoughts turn to identifying and recognizing players who had outstanding seasons. I've probably watched at least 40 games this season, and have seen most of the obvious candidates for All-America recognition at least once. I've also used the invaluable laxpower.com Player Impact Ratings, despite a couple of minor quibbles I have with their formulas, to sort out a number of close calls and separate myth and reality. I expect to be loudly berated by Syracuse, North Carolina, and Notre Dame fans, but such is life.

Herewith, one idiot's view of the best players of 2013.
