SEC trails only ACC in Pro Bowl players - SEC Blog - ESPN

SEC trails only ACC in Pro Bowl players - SEC Blog - ESPN: "Turns out the SEC isn't No. 1 in everything when it comes to football. OK, just kidding around, so no reason to flood me with e-mails, Big Ten and Pac-10 fans. I realize quality football is played in other parts of the country over and above the SEC. It's just that the trophy cases are a little dusty and barren in those other parts of the country. With that said, would you believe that the ACC leads the way this season in producing Pro Bowl players? Actually, it's the third straight year that the ACC has sent the most players to the NFL's all-star event. The ACC has 19 former players in the game this season. The SEC is second with 13 and the Pac-10 third with 12. " 'via Blog this'

The ACC had 19 former players selected to play in this year’s Pro Bowl. The SEC was second with 13 selections and the Pac-10 was third with 12. The Big Ten and the Big 12 had nine each. The ACC also led all conferences in number of starting players named to the Pro Bowl, with 12 of its 19 selections projected as starters. The Big Ten was second with seven starters, followed by the Pac-10 (5), the SEC (4) and the Big East, Big 12, Conference USA and the Mid-American Conference with three starters each. Miami led all individual schools with nine of its former standouts playing in the Pro Bowl. Tennessee was next with five followed by USC and California each with three selections. A total of 11 schools had two selections, including three ACC schools in NC State, Boston College and Virginia Tech. Four other ACC schools had one selection each including Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Virginia and Wake Forest." 'via Blog this'
