New, 9 comments

The ACC just announced the 2011 Preseason All-ACC ll this afternoon and two BC players made the team. You will never guess who. OK, it was Luke Kuechly and Montel Harris. Votes came from the media who voted this weekend during the ACC Kickoff Event. Kuechly and Harris led all ACC players in voting, with only one media member not voting for them. Whoever that person is should have their credentials yanked until they watch a football game. Florida State and Miami had the most players selected (4), while Georgia Tech, Maryland, N.C. State and Virginia were only represented by one player.

The breakdown by team goes as follows:
