OXFORD, Ohio - Balloting for Miami football's All-Decade Offensive Team concluded yesterday and now it's time to select the RedHawks' All-Decade Defensive Team. From now through June 30, Miami football fans are being asked to participate in an MURedHawks.com poll to select the greatest RedHawk players of the first decade of the 21st century.

Defensively, a total of 86 players are listed on the ballot. Fans will be asked to choose just four defensive linemen among 34 candidates, three linebackers among 20 possibilities and four defensive backs among 27 former and current stars. A "Defensive 12th Man" will be named to accompany the 11 position starters. Balloting for the defensive all-star squad begins June 20 and continues through the last day of June.

During the month of July, the honorees will be unveiled position-by-position on MURedHawks, starting with the quarterback.

Fans' votes will represent 60 percent of the balloting while media voting will account for 40 percent. Only online votes will count.

To protect the integrity of the balloting, fans may vote only once per registered email address for defensive players.
