    SI.com's "All Two-Star (and fewer) Team"

    I found this article to be a fun one. Andy Staples of SI.com has put together his "All Two-Star (and fewer) Team.

    I thought Jesse Smith was going to be on the team...

    I think the list is all people who are returning for 2010.

    Also, not sure if they would pick up on a walkon since he may have had no stars coming in. I would guess he just looks at who is on the signing day lists and not walk ons.

    Actually, if you read the article they do mention at least one walk-on. The reciever from Tech.

    Dang, I missed that.

    I do think it is only returning players on the list though.

    They do recruit them but usually as soon as they commit to Tejas, they jump up a star.

    You are correct. I didn't bother to read most of the drivel...

    "*Before we go any further, please, please, please understand that these are players who will play college football in 2010. "
