CNNSI 2009 College Football All-Americans

It seems as though everyone these days comes out with an all-American list. The Associated Press, American Football Coaches Association, Football Writers Association of America, Sporting News, and the Walter Camp Football Foundation are the esteemed entities that the NCAA recognizes to establish consensus all-Americans in 2009.

Outside of the consensus all-American agencies other sports sites and blogs create their own lists.

Sports Illustrated released theirs earlier today and while I don't disagree with their selections I was confused by their listing for Heisman Trophy Winner Mark Ingram: Wide Receiver.

Look below at the screenshot from earlier in the day with the error circled in red (they have since corrected the problem).

Nice, though not a big surprise, to see Golden Tate on the list. If Tate indeed earns the distinction of consensus all-American he would be the first Irish player since Jeff Samardzija, who won in 2006, to win the award.
