Manti Te'o is the lone Irish player on the Associated Press's All-America first team this year, which was released Tuesday afternoon.
Sophomore Stephon Tuitt and senior tight end Tyler Eifert made the second team and senior center Braxston Cave made the third team. Alabama led all teams with four players on the first team (Barrett Jones, Chance Warmack, C.J. Mosley and Dee Milliner).
See all three full team at the link below.
The AP delivers in-depth college football game coverage, highlights and the AP Top 25 Poll.
Just inside one of the entrances to the stadium there is a wall that shows all the first team all americans. Which list does nd use for that wall? AP?
I believe they list only the consensus All-Americans, meaning only the ones that make 1st team AA on a majority of the major AA teams. Using that criteria, only Manti will be added to the list from this year's teams.
My luck w/the Irish 20-6...GO IRISH!!!
Really surprised no Nix and no Martin! Maybe this will help fuel some fire...
When they see that Barrett Jones won't be able to handle Nix one-on-one, they will realize that Nix deserved to be on that team.

Mr. Nix now has even more motivation.
Maybe that's a good thing. Rile him up for Bama and maybe that means his draft stock is not high enough to put him in the draft where he wants to be.
Sports Illustrated released its All-America team this afternoon as well. Te'o and Tuitt were first-teamers. Tyler Eifert made the second team and Zeke Motta was an honorable mention.
