Phil Steel Midseason All-MAC team

Phil Steele pays more respect to the group of five conferences than most people who cover college football. That makes his preseason, mid season, and post season rankings something I look forward to reading. The Mid-season all conference team was released today and UB is all over the place, with one noticeable exclusion.

Where the hell is Colby Way?

Buffalo's defensive end is fourth in the conference in sacks and second in tackles for loss. Surely the merits at least a third team mention.

The Bulls who did make the team.

At the skill offensive positions UB placed Branden Oliver on the third team half back and Alex Neutz on first team wide receiver. On the offensive line Jasen Carlson and Andre Davis are on the second team.

Defensively its Adam Redden as a third team linebacker, Khalil Mack as a first team linebacker, and Najja Johnson as a first team cornerback.

Devin Campbell made the list as a second team return man.

The full team is here.
