2014 SB Nation All-America Team - SBNation.com

We like college football. We voted together on the country's best players. Come tell us what you think! Also, we collected the whole thing in a very pretty display.

I voted. I couldn't put a single Nebraska player at any position. It would have great had Ameer Abdullah not gotten hurt, along with Randy Gregory, but it wasn't to be.

I was disappointed that Tyler Lockett of Kansas State wasn't chosen for either receiver or returner; I felt that Locket meant the most to his team of nearly any player in the nation.

Nebraska players didn't win a single major award, with the exception of Jordan Westerkamp's behind the back catch being selected as Play of the Year (see below).

Christmas

If you're looking for Christmas gifts, don't forget that you can get the Through These Gates DVD from us, along with t-shirts, hoodies, and sweatshirts. The DVD would be good for a family distraction, and the CN apparel might be a good gift for someone if for no other reason than watching them go "WTF is this?".
