Foreman, Worthy, Adams, Robinson Win All-Big Ten Honors

Joel Foreman was First Team All-Big Ten, but on the O-Line and sadly not for the one carry he had against Indiana.

The Big Ten just handed out its All-Big Ten and player of the year honors today.  MSU placed four players on the first team and eight (or seven, if you're counting Johnny Adams twice) on the second team, which is the best showing I can remember.  

Even more remarkable -- counting honorable mention, every starter on the MSU defense was honored.  We're a long, long ways from 2006 y'all.  Here are the honorees, and I'll have more commentary in a bit.  The lists in full are after the jump.
