Editors note: This article was adapted from Phil Steeles college football preview magazine, which is available here. Cheap Adidas Ultra Boost China .Putting together a preseason All-America team is never easy. I talk to NFL personnel people and get their input on which players they project as the top NFL prospects for next year. You must also consider the guys who are just great college football players. Maybe they dont have the size and speed to be first-round draft picks, but they are highly productive college football players who play in the right system.Heres my team -- starting with my five toughest choices when choosing my 2016 first-team preseason All-America team. Grey Adidas Ultra Boost 2018 . Thousands of Southern California fans enveloped the Trojans to celebrate an improbable win secured by an interim coach, an inconsistent kicker and a thin defence that wouldnt break. Wholesale Adidas Ultra Boost Shoes 2018 . -- Nate Robinson has played for seven teams, so beating one of them is no longer a rare occurrence. . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- Long, long ago, in a golf galaxy far, far away, there existed a singular dominant player who presided over his peers with a steely glare and an iron fist, rarely squandering an opportunity to defeat these mortals on the grandest stages.If life in the Tiger Woods era sounded like something out of a fairy tale, then life in the post-Tiger Woods era -- The eclectic era? The parity party? -- feels like a return to normalcy, a chance for the game to play out as the golf gods had first intended.Rather than one player triumphing over the field on a regular basis, the major championships have recently resembled a bakery line, with every elite-level player grabbing that little pink ticket from the machine at the counter, then waiting for his number to be called to pick up a trophy. (Blame Jordan Spieth for double-dipping at the counter last year.)This years first three major champions -- Danny Willett, Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson -- own a few notable commonalities. Each ranked among the worlds top 12 at the time of his win, and each claimed his first major title.It all serves as part of a bigger theme entering this weeks PGA Championship. Once a domain for dominance, the majors have become a turnstile for many of the worlds upper-echelon players.For just the fifth time since the inaugural Masters Tournament, there exists a chance that all four majors in a single year will be won by first-time champions. The difference between this year and 1959, 1969, 2003 and 2011, though, is that the 2016 champions list reads like a whos who of major contenders finally breaking through rather than a few surprises slipping through the cracks.Speaking of surprises, its less shocking that Willett, Johnson and Stenson have won than that Spieth, Jason Day and Rory McIlroy havent. Those players combined for seven major titles in the past five years, but now each is vying for the years final opportunity at a tournament that once rightly billed itself as Glorys Last Shot.Do I feel like Im playing five or 10 Tigers out there? No, I feel like that would be disrespectful towards Tiger, McIlroy said this week. But the fields are deeper and so many guys have chances to win tournaaments. Wholesale Adidas Ultra Boost Shoes. ... Golf, its in a good place in terms of how many good players we have, and I feel like its hard to separate yourself from the pack a little bit. But thats what were trying to do. Were trying to separate ourselves and trying to win tournaments and trying to be the best that we can, and hopefully that, in turn, is the best in the world.Or as Spieth more succinctly put it: I dont think theres any Tiger out here right now. I think thats fair to say. Only time will tell.Thats not to say the game is any better with a singular dominant player, nor any worse without one. Dominance tends to fuel the intrigue of the masses (see: Era, Tiger), but a brilliant competitive balance certainly doesnt hurt matters.This years first three majors have not only provided new yet deserving champions, they also have delivered excessive drama to the proceedings. Spieth led by five strokes entering the back nine of the Masters and lost by three; Johnson played his final round of the U.S. Open with a looming video review of a rules violation but never faltered; and Stenson simply provided the better half of one of the games greatest duels on a Sunday afternoon stage, outlasting Phil Mickelson at The Open.If there was going to be any backlash against different players winning majors, it was washed away in the drama of each of these tournaments.It just goes to show how stiff the competition has gotten over the years that Ive been out here, explained Day, 28, who won his only major title at last years PGA Championship. And then on top of it, the guys are just younger and stronger and fitter and faster, and they are just long out there. So just the competition is really, really tough right now. If you dont stay one step ahead of the young guys, its easy to get left behind.That serves as not only the overriding theme of golf this year, but also for this era. Whatever it is -- The eclectic era? The parity party? -- a different player taking his pink ticket and stepping up to the bakery counter when his number is called has clearly become the new normal. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
