Mark Richt is a bit upset after the All-ACC teams were announced on Monday afternoon.

The All-ACC teams were announced on Monday, and there were few surprises on the list. Lamar Jackson was named All-ACC First Team at quarterback. Dalvin Cook and James Conner were the league's top two running backs. Mike Williams, Amba Etta-Tawo and Ryan Switzer got the nods at wide receiver. You can check out the entire list over at CBS Sports, if interested. But Miami head coach Mark Richt is upset with how it all shook out on the other side of the ball.

Richt, noting that Miami's defense is among the best in the country, was upset that just one of his players - cornerback Corn Elder - made All-ACC Second Team. He clearly thinks the Hurricanes' defense, which is ranked 14th in the country in terms of points per game, deserved more.

All in all, Miami had three representatives in the two teams. Elder and punter Justin Vogel made All-ACC Second Team Defense, while wide receiver Ahmmon Richards made All-ACC Second Team Offense.
