The Phipps preview has all sorts of facts, but as with many previews it is the opinions that many find interesting. And those opinions are the basis of his polls...picking teams and players for the upcoming season.
Phipps believes that his preview is the only one that names All-Southeastern Conference Western and Eastern Division pre-season all-star teams.
Alabama has relatively good representation, particularly defensively.
Alabama had five first team and four second team selections. Auburn had eight first team selections (including both the punter and placekicker) and four second team picks. LSU had seven first team selections and seven second team picks (including both the second team placekicker and second team punter).
