Do you love America? If you do, then it's your patriotic duty to love All-America teams. If you don't love All-America teams, well, you probably got lost on your way back to Canada, eh?

We've already shared with you our very own CBSSports.com All-America Team and the AP All-American team in recent weeks, and today we have the Football Writers Association of America's list for you to look at and get irrationally angry about. What's the difference between these three teams?

Well, I only voted on the CBSSports.com and FWAA versions. So pay no mind to the AP.

As is usually the case, the SEC has more spots on this team than any other conference with 11 of the 26 players. What is somewhat surprising -- at least it would have been before the season -- is that four of those players are from Texas A&M.
