    Never, since we've only been the PAC12 for 3 years.

    This in a way reflective of something that is common in both college and pro football.

    Why do we have all-conference recievers? In large part because we have to throw the ball a lot. We haven't been very good on a consistent basis running the ball and we have been behind a lot so the ball is in the air a lot. We have also had one receiver who is significantly better and more experienced than our others so lots of those balls end up going to one guy. Big stats get attention for post-season honors, even without wins.

    How many of the top statistical guys in the NFL or the NCAA play on top end teams. Last year somebody posted on this site a listing of the top 10 rushers in the NFL and the top ten receivers. In both cases only a couple of guys were even on playoff teams.

    Last years top 10 FBS rushers
    1Andre Williams, RBBC35521776.18018
    2Jordan Lynch, QBNIU29219206.66123
    3Ka'Deem Carey, RBARIZ34918855.45819
    4Bishop Sankey, RBWASH32718705.76020
    5Tre Mason, RBAUB31718165.75323
    6Kapri Bibbs, RBCSU28117416.28531
    7Antonio Andrews, RBWKU26717306.56516
    8Tyler Gaffney, RBSTAN33017095.26921
    9Ameer Abdullah, RBNEB28116906.0629
    10Melvin Gordon, RBWIS20616097.88012

    And top 10 receivers

    Brandin Cooks, WRORST128173013.55516
    2Davante Adams, WRFRES131171813.17524
    3Willie Snead, WRBALL106151614.35515
    4Jordan Matthews, WRSOU112147713.2557
    5Sammy Watkins, WRCLEM101146414.59612
    6Allen Robinson, WRPSU97143214.8656
    7Mike Evans, WRTA&M69139420.29512
    8Jeremy Gallon, WRMICH89137315.4849
    9Jamison Crowder, WRDUKE108136012.6758
    10Chandler Jones, WRSJSU79135617.27715

    A few good teams on each list but also a lot of not so good teams.

    I look forward to the day when we have enough talent that we don't have to rely so heavily on one player to produce offense.
