Alabama Crimson Tide football players Mark Ingram and Julio Jones were named Playboy Preseason All-Americans, and Greg McElroy won the Anson Mount Scholar-Athlete Award. The official press release follows below:

MARK INGRAM AND JULIO JONES RECOGNIZED AS PLAYBOY ALL-AMERICANS WHILE GREG MCELROY NAMED ANSON MOUNT SCHOLAR-ATHLETE WINNER
(UA) Alabama junior tailback Mark Ingram and junior wide receiver Julio Jones were named to the 2010 Playboy Preseason All-America Team. This is the second straight year on the team for Jones as he was also a selection in 2009. Senior quarterback Greg McElroy was named the winner of the Anson Mount Scholar-Athlete Award by the same publication. Playboy will send a check for $5,000 to the University of Alabama’s general scholarship fund in McElroy’s name.

Ingram was Alabama’s first Heisman Trophy winner in 2009 as he helped lead the Crimson Tide to the school’s 13th national championship. He set the school record with 1,658 yards rushing and added 20 total touchdowns. Jones has led UA in receiving in each of his two seasons at the Capstone. Known as an outstanding all-around player who also excels as a blocker and a returner, Jones has totaled 1,520 yards with eight touchdowns over the last two seasons.

McElroy was the signal caller for Alabama’s perfect season in 2009 and has not lost a game as a starting quarterback since the eighth grade. He was the MVP of the SEC Championship game against Florida last December and finished the season with 2,508 passing yards with 17 touchdowns and just four interceptions. The Texas native graduated in the summer of 2009 with a 3.86 GPA in business marketing and is now pursuing a master’s degree. McElroy is currently in the process of preparing his application for a Rhodes Scholarship.

Jones, Javier Arenas and Rolando McClain were selected as Playboy Preseason All-Americans in 2009. Andre Smith was on the 2008 team and prior to that, Roman Harper was recognized as part of the prestigious group in 2005.

This year marks the 54th year of the Playboy All-America Team, the direct descendent of the original All-America as conceived by Walter Camp back in the 1890’s. Camp, then Grantland Rice, then a number of other editors and writers selected an All-America team for Collier¹s Magazine until Collier¹s went out of business in 1956. An enterprising Hugh Hefner, who had just started Playboy Magazine in 1953, realized a great college football tradition was about to disappear. He hired Collier’s writer Francis Wallace who then selected the team for Playboy in 1957. Anson Mount took over the next year and became the most successful college football prognosticator over the next 29 years. Gary Cole followed Mount when he passed away in 1986 and, with the help of football guru Gil Brandt, has been selecting the team and predicting Playboy’s Top 25 ever since.

    Dude, you’re nuts. Even though I know you’re not one, you sound like a Barner or Corndog troll. Yes, for whatever reason Julio sometimes seems to lose concentration on short, quick passes in the flat. But in the winning IB drive he caught 4 critical 3rd down passes like that to give Upchurch the chance for the td. Against LSWho he took a pass at the LOS and smoked the whole Corndog team for a 73 yard td that won the game and then broke up a sure interception by Peterson that kept a score clinching drive alive. As a decoy he allowed Maze, Hanks and Peek to get open in single coverage and catch many critical passes. He has led the team in passing yards both of his years. He is the best blocking WR in all of football and added many yards to Ingrams, Richardson’s and Upchurch’s runs. He returns kicks. He plays on the kick blocking D. And he always plays hurt. What the more fuck do you want. The professionals such as Playboy and NFL scouts think he’s the second best WR in the land. That’s good enough for me. RTR!

    1977 you’re a stupid son-of-bitch. Julio blocks anybody that gets in the way including 250 lb LB’s. The total package is what makes the athlete. If blocking is so easy you dumb bastard then why are there almost no WR’s that do it effectively? Fucking AJ Green couldn’t block my sister. You sound like some WR busted your ass one too many times. Or was it your sisters cherry? Or are you sucking AJ Green’s cock? Probably you’re in homosexual love with a WR on the Barners or Gayturds team and ya’ll got your itsy bitsy feelings hurt because of no recognition. What a rock stupid dumbass you are thinking because of your tinymite football experience you know more than the professionals. You couldn’t evaluate an Armadillo smashed on the highway. You, dumbass, will find out just how stupid you are when even if he doesn’t get anymore yards than last year, Julio will go in the 1st round as a junior. Now go sit on a cock somewhere and STFU! RTR!

    tempe lol so now the nfl drafts recievers in the first round because of little things not because of overall performance which is catching the fucking football too! the difference between julio jones and a piece of shit is eventually the shit turns white and stops stinking! yall just fucking admit he sucked crimsonites sack last year(he will litterally cum in his dickies overalls at the thought of that) and DID NOT produce like everyones expected i trully hope he does this year dont get me wrong but he deserves no accolades for his performance last year. only time will tell i also will bet crimsonites male porn collection that if julio has another year like last year we will see him in 2011 back at bama

    I retract my earlier statement. Now I’m positive you are a Barner troll. There is categorically no Bama fan who would ever talk about Julio that way. Did God die and will you his Omniprescense? Suddenly you know more about Julio than anyone else on earth, and your opinion is completely opposite of everyone elses. Do you know just how stupid that makes you look? Keep running your mouth dipshit. I don’t need to argue with you. Your own ranting invalidates everything you say. You must be a 14 year old pimple faced booger eater since you can’t spell, make coherent sentences, or come up with more than 6 cuss words which you repeat 50 times each. I know – your a locker room janitor sniffing dirty jock straps. And I think KKK who’s sister got knocked up by Julio. And you’re just too knowlegeable about cocks and cum and ass fucking for me. I’m not gonna load this thread anymore cause I’m afraid just by reading your posts my computer will get an STD. Bwaa Haww Haww! RTR!

    lol u need new material jimmy u tired trailer park queen. julio hasnt done shit and u know it. thats why ur not gonna argue because u dont have a leg to stand on. oh yea also congrats for being able to read the dictionary and find a big word and use it correctly in a sentence i bet u have ur g.e.d. framed and hung on the wall beside ur cum soaked julio poster. and trust me there are plenty of bama fans that say the same thing and i bet u are a fair weather fan anyhow. and as far as the cock and cum talk go well maam u the one that keeps talking about it.just like a 2dollar cum dump fag if you dont have a dick in ya mouth you got one on ur mind. so have a good day u nasty cunt.

    Wow bamafan… You sure don’t sounds like a bammafan… Lets not forget julio did lead the team in receptions and yards both his fresh and soph year buddy on 2 pretty amazing football teams… A regular season undefeated and and a national and sec championship the next year… If you think blocking isn’t important then you are officially the biggest idiot in the world. Let me guess, your a 310lb man who played football at a juco back in 77 and you’re living your glory days on the internet looking at gay porn and jacking off to posters of yourself that you took huh?? Get a life… This thread should be for congratulating the players of their awards not ragging on them… Obviously somebody who knows more about football than you gives out these awards so why don’t you go back to picking up cans off the side of the road and let them do their jobs.

    Looks like E.G. and 77 need to get a room. A little too much man love in those posts for me …..Not that there is anything wrong with that ( see Seinfeld)…..

    Is this the way that typical Bama men interact with one another ? julio, if we could get someone to be like Jane Goodall and observe this typical Bammer behavior, we might better understand them….I just dont know any Auburn folks that would volunteer.

    This stupid Son-of-a-Bitch is a classic case of split personality schitzophrenia. I bet they don’t even remember what each other posted. He’s called me by about 3 different screen names and accused me of being 2 others. Somebody must be cutting his crack with sulfuric acid. Somebody get me the Thorazine quick!
