If you don't already love BTN (and who doesn't that's reading this?) then I present to you the exact reasons you should. Their ability to drag out and analyize instantly the unveiling of the coaches and media all-Big Ten teams on an annual basis. No other conference can say they've got a complete special aired on national cable telelvision just to announce who the best players were in their league that season.  (and yes I know the Pac-12 Network is doing something similar, but notice I said NATIONAL cable network) So here are the picks from the coaches and media. As for our thoughts? Well we'll be unveiling our very own award winners tomorrow morning - so you'll see if our staff agrees then. Here are the 2012 All-Big Ten teams: Coaches 1st team: Offense: QB - Taylor Martinez (Nebraska) RB - Montee Ball (Wisconsin) RB - Le'Veon Bell (Michigan State) WR - Jared Abbrederis (Wisconsin) WR - Allen Robinson (Penn State) TE - Jacob Pederson (Wisconsin) G - Patrick Omameh (Michigan)* G - Spencer Long (Nebraska)* G - John Urschel (Penn State) *tie C - Matt Stankiewitch (Penn State) T - Taylor Lewan (Michigan) T - Ricky Wagner (Wisconsin) K - Jeff Budzein (Northwestern) Defense: DL - John Simon (Ohio State) DL -  Jonathan Hankins (Ohio State) DL - Jordan Hill (Penn State) DL -  Kawann Short (Purdue) LB - Max Bullough (Michigan State) LB - Michael Mauti (Penn State) LB - Chris Borland (Wisconsin) DB - Micah Hyde (Iowa) DB -  Johnny Adams (Michigan State) DB -  Darqueze Dennard (Michigan State) DB - Bradley Roby (Ohio State) P - Mike Sadler (Michigan State) Media 1st team: Offense: QB - Braxton Miller (Ohio State) RB - Montee Ball (Wisconsin) RB - Le'Veon Bell (Michigan State) WR - Jared Abbrederis (Wisconsin) WR - Allen Robinson (Penn State) TE - Kyle Clark (Penn State) G - Spencer Long (Nebraska) G - Andrew Norwell (Ohio State) C - Travis Frederick (Wisconsin) T - Taylor Lewan (Michigan) T - Ricky Wagner (Wisconsin) K - Brett Maher (Nebraska) Defense: DL - John Simon (Ohio State) DL - Jordan Hill (Penn State) DL - Kawaan Short (Purdue) DL - Eric Martin (Nebraska) LB - Ryan Shazier (Ohio State)  LB - Michael Mauti (Penn State) LB - Mike Taylor (Wisconsin) DB - Micah Hyde (Iowa) DB - Damion Stafford (Nebraska) DB - Travis Howard (Ohio State) DB - Bradley Roby (Ohio State) P - Will Hagerup (Michigan) You can find the full 2nd teams and honorable mention lists here.
