(Photo Courtesy: USA Today Sports) This past week, Crystal Ball Run has given you an all-encompassing look at college football’s newest conference, “The American.” We’ve discussed key players, the league’s bizarre scheduling quirks and even the biggest and most exciting games to mark on your calendar. And today it’s time to complete our look-ahead to the 2013 season in the American. Later we’ll be making our conference championship picks, and below we’ve listed our projected All-Conference picks.   Please note that all players are listed by the class which they will be entering during the 2013 season, but all stats are from the 2012 season. Enjoy, and as always feel free to let us know what you think of our selections in the comments section below. Also feel free to make fun of us when the actual All-Conference teams are selected in December.
