No Burger Love For Cheeseheads

Update: Four 2010 McDonald's All-Americans will be heading to the Big Ten next season, two to Ohio State and one each to Michigan State and Illinois.

The 2010 McDonald's All-Americans will be announced this afternoon at 4:30 CT. While the value of such a designation is clearly overblown, it is nevertheless a prestigious honor for those chosen to be a "Burger Boy."

Out of the scores of nominees for the honor, 19 players were nominated from the state of Wisconsin. Many figured that former UW recruit Vander Blue had a remote (if not better) shot at making it to the McDonald's All-American Game heading into the season. But Blue's season has been merely very good, rather than spectacular, so Wisconsin will likely once again have no representation.

Badger freshman-to-be Duje Dukan was nominated from the state of Illinois.
