Penn State Leads Preseason All-Big Ten Team with 7 Players

Pete Dymeck@PeteDymeckAnalyst IAugust 25, 2009

Unlike some of the other conferences, the Big Ten does not vote on a preseason all-conference team.

Why not?

I am not sure if we want to know the answer.

After all, the Big Ten is the same conference that fails to play a single football game after Thanksgiving.

But, in order to honor the best the Big Ten has to offer, here is the 2009 preseason All-Big Ten team.
