American Sports Network's Super Poll 50

Players from all sorts of backgrounds will suit up for the Panthers and Broncos in Super Bowl 50.

Many of them came from conferences featured on the American Sports Network - conferences like Conference-USA, the Big South, the Patriot League and the So-Con.

ASN and its viewers have created the Super Poll 50 - the 50 best players from ASN conferences. I unveil the top 50, on the American Sports Network Web Show, and I interview some of stars featured on the list, including Terrell Owens and Troy Brown, and break down the list with NFL experts Russell Baxter and Jon Saraceno.

You can watch all of the videos unveiling the top 50 by clicking here.

But I had some disagreements from what the fan vote on
