    Default All-Time B1G football Team, which former Gophers could make it?

    Just saw the all-ACC team posted on ESPN. Who would get the vote for All-B1G from the Gophers.

    FB - Bronko Nagurski

    DL - Bobby Bell
    DE - Carl Eller

    I can't honestly think of any other Gophers who would stand a chance to be on the All-Time All-B1G first team.

    Note: Drew Brees over the G.O.A.T. Tom Brady due to his college production.

    Possibly, but there is no way he is ahead of Charles Woodson, he would be a lock along with Butkus on the defense.

    ...or Rod Woodson for that matter!

    They played different positions. Woodson was a CB in college. Carter a safety.

    Charles Woodson won the Heisman. Rod Woodson is widely considered the second best defensive back in history behind Deion.

    Maybe Tyrone Carter would have a shot at Safety.

    This list has Eslinger and Bronko first team, although the list is pretty much garbage IMO.
