2009 Media Preseason All-Conference Team

The 2009 preseason all-conference teams were announced earlier today.  There were only three unanimous decisions with Utah’s LB Stevenson Sylvester, TCU’s DE Jerry Hughes, and BYU’s TE Denis Pitta.

Somewhat odd that BYU QB Max Hall was not a unanimous choice and the only other options would be Andy Dalton from TCU, but that seems far fetched as Hall’s 2008 numbers dwarfed Dalton’s.

The only quasi selection comes from San Diego State in wide receiver Vincent Brown, because most of his yards came from the Aztecs trailing and having to throw the ball to catch up.

Besides that nothing to shocking here; TCU leads the way with seven total selections, BYU with five, and Utah also with five.
