    As a follower of Alaska football from a distance, one complaint I have is that too many players are given all conference honors, particularly for first team.

    If the above is accurate and my quick count is accurate, the first team (excluding specialists) has 17 players on offense (2 QB, 2 RB, 7 OL, 5 WR and 1 TE) and 19 on defense (3 DL, 12 LB and 4 DB) for a total of 36 honorees.

    Add the 21 second team members and 41 honorable mention players and it means that 98 of 176 offensive and defensive starting positions in the conference were honored...which is 55%.

    Railbelt Conference selects similar numbers.

    My opinion is pare it down to no more than 12 on each of first team offense and defense and a like number on second team. Would make the honor much more meaningful.

    I think they deserve it they play hard out there. After all, this is the best conference.

    Just because you play hard doesn't mean you should be named all conference. The more players that are named the less meaningful the honor is. You shouldn't have a 50% chance to be all conference. All Conference should mean something. It shouldn't be something that is handed out to anybody that tries hard.
    The best player at each position should be first team all conference (not 2 qbs, only the top qb should be first team). The second player should be 2nd team. Honorable mention should be handed out to maybe 10 kids total, not a kid from each position.

    How does saying only one quarterback out of the eight starting quarterbacks in the conference should be named First Team All-Conference publicly ruin someone's reputation? Doesn't "first team" at a position generally imply "one"?

    I have to agree with you, jalock. Naming 17, 18, 19 athletes on the "first team" not only cheapens the overall selections, but lends justification to the overall impression Outside that Alaskan football is 10 to 20 years behind that of our Lower 48 brethren.

    I know the standard response is, "We don't care how they do it Outside." But if those (coaches?) who pick the team can't bring themselves to put their political, self-serving, ego-feeding selections/voting aside and name a legitimate 12-player -- counting specialists -- offensive and 12-player defensive first team, then scrap it, let some other group pick it, or print a fill-in-the-blank All-CIC award certificate and distribute it to all players.

    Just to clear the air on our All-Conference selections both in the CIC and the Railbelt. They are the same that are used in the state of California which has arguably some of the best football in the nation, look it up. As far as the importance of 1st team, 2nd team etc.... It has very little effect on a players future. Look at any college football roster, they are loaded with first team this and first team that and thats looking about three of four deep on the depth chart! Our system that we have in place in Alaska now is actually the modern way of doing it and is great for all parties involved. Way better than the way we did it before. Less politics, less pity rivalries at voting, and no 6 hour meetings for us coaches.

    It's like that in California because they are loaded with football talent; you coaches are taking the easy way out by voting half the conference in. The "trophy for everyone" attitude has been adopted instead of trying to honor the best players on the field, bs politics or not. Seriously, 12 linebackers on first team defense? What were you guys thinking?

    First I'd bet they do it that way in Cali because they have more than a handful of teams in a conference.

    Second it sounds like your saying the adults in the room can't act like adults. Politics and pity rivalries thats a poor reason. Might as well just post the guys that didn't make it, list would be shorter.

    Thanks to the coach who posted. But why do you guys have to have six hour meetings to argue about all conference picks? Let me help you guys out. Give each coach a list of players and tell them to pick the best players at each position for the First Team All Conference (1 quarterback, 2 wide receivers, one kicker, etc). And then have them pick a Second Team.
    Compile the "votes" for each kid and there you go. You dont even have to meet with the other coaches.

    Not sure you've "cleared the air" here, coach. A more accurate picture of coaches-selected area teams might be a better indicator of number comparisons to the CIFC.

    A perusal of the linked website below might "clear the air" as far as All-Area team selections across the United States are concerned. Based on the vast majority of these teams, your professed "modern way of doing it" certainly doesn't seem to hold much water, even in the state you pointed to as an example. (?)

    Couldn't agree with you more, though, in terms those teams' importance to a player's future in the sport. I'm assuming you're referring to scholarships?

    IMO, the "everybody gets a trophy" mentality only serves to cheapen the selections. If the coaches can't agree on a legitimate all-Conference team, I'd suggest they ask the players. They can probably tell you who the best players are.
