Coaches will gather at a prearranged location to choose all-conference teams. To vote for all-conference teams, a coach or a school representative must be present. The official ballot will be prepared by the host athletic director, who will also preside over the selection meeting. All votes that result in ties are discarded. If any voter is unable to attend the meeting, a proxy vote may be taken - with the understanding that identical votes would be discarded and not counted as separate votes.
The voting process is simple: Each team receives one vote. The team's current conference coaches/representatives vote for the first team on the list; subsequent teams receive votes from previous teams until all 12 teams have been voted upon. Coaches cannot vote for their own team. If any coach violates this rule, another coach can vote for his or her team in place of the offending coach.
In addition to choosing all-conference teams, the conference awards several other honors including player of the year, rookie of the year, coach of the year, and offensive, defensive, and overall college football championships.
All-America selections are made by committees composed of media members and former players.
At the end of the regular season (the games played prior to the start of the playoffs), all of the head coaches from the schools in your conference meet and select the top players from each school to make a "all conference team." 2008-05-26 02:29:15 Wiki User uploaded a new image.
Each organization has different conferences to divide up the teams into groups. Teams are selected for these conferences depending on the location of the schools. These conferences are put in due to the regional play of the teams and to have a structural schedule for each team to play for the upcoming year. Without these divisions, there would be no way to determine which teams were good or not so it's necessary to have conferences.
There are 12 regular season games per team. At the end of this period, the top ranked team in each conference is given the #1 seed and will go on to face off against the #4 seed in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The second-ranked team will meet the fourth-ranked team and so on. This process is repeated until all four teams have played each other at some point during the season.
The winner of the first round game goes on to play the winner of the second round game who plays the winner of the third round game and so on. If there is a tie between two or more teams after three rounds have been played, then a playoff series will be held to break the tie. The format for the playoffs varies by league but almost always includes some type of best-of-three series between all tied teams. The exception is the Pac-12, where the top two seeds receive a one-game advantage in terms of seeding.
