With the bulk of the season behind us, a lot of focus will be on postseason awards and All-America selections.
On top of those honors are All-Conference teams. Today's assignment is not one conference, but a wide array of conferences. We are selecting the All-Mid-Major teams and in a year like this, that was no easy task.
The criteria for a mid-major for the purposes of this article is any player from the top eight power conferences (Big Ten, Big 12, Big East, SEC, ACC, Mountain West, Pac-12 and Atlantic 10) is excluded, as well as players from more traditionally successful teams like Gonzaga and BYU.
There were just way too many players to choose from to mention everyone who deserved to be noted. Also, there is no way anyone will agree 100 percent, so it is greatly encouraged that you share your opinions on omissions or rankings you disagree with.
Here are the 2012 All-Mid-Major teams.
