UAlbany Football Picked to Repeat as NEC Champs

The Northeast Conference revealed its preseason poll for the 2012 season.

Not surprisingly, the University at Albany, the 2011 champs, are at the top. Bob Ford and his Great Danes have some holes to fill, but they should definitely start the season at top, after earning the league's first playoff bid last season.

Here is the poll.

    1.    UAlbany (6)
    2.    Duquesne (1)
    3.    Bryant (2)
    4.    Central Connecticut
    5.    Monmouth
    6.    Robert Morris
    7.    Wagner
    8.    Sacred Heart
    9.    Saint Francis (PA)

The preseason team was also announced.

Here are the UAlbany players who earned preseason honors.

WR - Ryan Kirchner
OL - Kadeem Williams

The Great Danes begin practice on Monday.
