    You know its bad in the Norte when Baylor has as many first team all big-12 players as CO&NU have 1st and 2nd teamers COMBINED.

    Agreed. I'm not saying that means they didn't perform though.

    Want to know why Bradford is tearing it up. Of the five o-lineman, three 1st teamers, two second teamers and the worst of the five was honorable mention. O-line is what makes the world go round.

    Trooo dat. Anyone can find the open receiver if they have all day in the pocket, not to mention a good running game that helps open up the passing game.

    Which is exactly why we need to make O-line recruiting a priority again this year.

    Because all their players where on the First or Second team. That didn't leave much for them to have a honorable mention. :lol: Good Call Infinity. :thumbsup:

    Anyone feel that Josh Smith should have at least got honorable mention as a punt returner/kick returner. he only led the league in return yards and was the only player in the Big 12 to rank in the top 5 in yards/return for both punts and kickoffs?

    O-line is certainly a requirement but I think you are discounting the importance of QB here. Bradford owes some success to his OL but to suggest that you can just throw any guy back there and they will succeed isn't really accurate IMO. Same with WR's - they have big time players at that position.

    I also think Robert Griffin illustrates that a great QB can be productive behind not the best OL. Baylor's wasn't horrible but it certainly was far from dominant.

    It's hardly something to distress about. Let's face it, this conference was so strong this year you shouldn't be surprised to see who dominated the All conference selections...

    We're on our way, no worries..

    Stewart would have likely been 2nd team RB if he had stayed healthy....

    Agreed...Smith should have gotton at least honorable mention for KR/PR, if not 2nd team...

    So what about our honors this year...lets think about next year

    This is what I envision

    1st - Jimmy Smith CB (Trust me on this one)
    1st - Josh Smith KR/PR (At least two or three PR/KR for six next year)

    2nd - Shaun Mohler LB (He is gonna be good next year)
    2nd - Darrell Scott RB (Trust me on this one two...he will be a beast)
    2nd - Ryan Miller RT (Certainly talented enough)


    Chap, Herrod, Stewart, J-Fly (WR), and Smart all have a shot at honorable mention next year...

    It will get better
