Pre-season all americans

Is it me or is 7 defensive players for Bama a little high for 1st team pre-season all-americans and 1 more on 2nd team. As you can imagine there are 9 Bama Defensive All-Sec 1st team and 2 2nd team lol maybe its just me but that might be overkill. I follow NCAA pretty closely so if any Bama fans have input as to why this would be, please educate me on this world class D. Im not ripping Bama's D but it seems overkill for that many AA

Edit: are the pre-season AA predetermined on NCAA or based on ratings?

Re: Pre-season all americans

We just won the national championship. EA always gives the previous year's national champion extraordinarily inflated ratings. However, I'm sure there will be people adjusting the ratings pretty soon, so it won't be that bad for much longer. I know that I am taking them down a lot as soon as the rosters for 360 are released.

It's widely known and accepted that EA heavily overrated Alabama this year. That's their gift to the national champs though, but as the other guy said, ratings will be adjusted... Just give it time.

Our guys aren't really unproven with the exception of the secondary.

Not unproven but the ratings are a bit too high. I understand that EA rewards the previous year's national champs, but they went in overdrive with Bama...
