Badgers Rose Bowl 2011 Report: All Big Ten 2010 Badgers

Anytime you are as good of team as the 2010 Badger football team you would expect to place a lot of players on the All Big Ten Team, well good news the Badgers have earned respect this year. Badgers to place on the First Team All Big Ten Team for both the coaches and the media are Gabe Carimi, John Moffitt, Lance Kendricks, and J.J. Watt, in addition Antonio Fenelus made the media's first team. Badgers to place on the Second Team All Big Ten Team are John Clay, James White, Scott Tolzien and Aaron Henry. Badgers named to the Honorable Mention All Big Ten Team are Peter Konz, Ricky Wagner, Kevin Zeitler, Bill Nagy, Niles Brinkley, Montee Ball, Blake Sorensen, Mike Taylor, and Philip Welch.

For those of you who lost count that is 18 Badgers named to one tier or another of the All Big Ten Team, like we have been saying this team is about talent not smoke and mirrors.  Also impressive is that 4 sophomores were named to the squad and one true freshman so the Badger talent pipeline is not exactly running dry anytime soon. Unfortunately you will notice that none of the Badger wide receivers despite really solid seasons made All Big Ten and in particular David Gilreath wasn't recognized for his overall effort.  Also while J.J. Watt made first team the rest of his linemates realistically didn't deserve recognition and didn't receive any. As far as individual awards Carimi was named the top lineman something that even Joe Thomas didn't get, and James White was the top freshman.
