Does he still lead the nation in tackles?
Yep, in both solo and total tackles.
Dizon #1 total tackles
Dizon #1 solo tackles
If he doesn't (at least) make finalist, it'll be a travesty.
Yep. Some big names on that list, but he should be right at the top.
There's some serious LB talent in the Henderson family (Maryland).
Damn, he's 14 solo tackles away from the next guy on the list. He better be in the finals for that.
And he only had 5 tackles against Miami.
But he had 22, 17, 12, 13, 15, 13 in all the others. The guy is a monster.
Well deserved, but people shouldn´t read too much into tackle statistics.
I don't. I watch the guy play. He's everywhere, which is why he makes so many tackles.
The reason he only had 5 against Miami is because the Buffs completely dominated on D and shut them out.
Not a knock on Dizon who deserves the credit he gets, I just generally have a beef with the tackle statistics as they can be extremely misleading.
Yeah, it can be misleading, but not in his case.
WTF are you talking about? The kid has instincts, athleticism, and heart that cant be denied. He makes tackles all over the field, and is always in the right position. Give us a reason his stats dont mean anything.
Read the first 2 words of my post again and make an effort to understand what I want to say.
It sounded to me like you were saying that HIS stats were inflated somehow. I still dont know why you chose to qualify your opinion that he deserves mention on the Butkus list with the second part of your statement.
I don't get why you're throwing a fit.
It´s ok, poor wording on my part and this isn´t the thread for a fight. Truce.
Agree 100%. There is no way he should not make the top 5 for that award...
What is a bit troubling is that the semi-finalists for the Lombardi award (top lineman or linebacker) came out today, and 4 LBs made the list. Adibi (Va Tech), Connor (Penn State), Leman (Michigan) and Laurinaitas (Ohio St.). No Dizon there. Hopefully it means nothing when it comes to the Butkus, but it does worry me a bit... :huh:
Separate names with a comma.
