Greg Davis, Defensively, Sam Acho had very similar stats to the player of the year, Jeremy Beal. Here Acho line: 58 tackles, 15.5 for loss, 12 QB hurries, and five forced fumbles. Beal and the line: 59 tackles, 18.0 for loss, 8.5 sacks, three forced fumbles. Ultimately, the difference is mainly that Beal played for a winning team that went to the Big 12 championship game and Acho played a defense that has been cut especially against mediocre opponents. Ultimately there is not much to complain.
Junior Kheeston Randall is a similar story. A case could be made to Randall against Baylor Phil Taylor, who had more tackles, but fewer tackles for losses, but what really hurts Randall has its dull down the stretch when teams began to run at will on Texas and Randall do not have the same impact he did at the beginning of the season, although he did assist on special teams with two blocks of the end. So, not exactly a parody either.
Unfortunately for the junior kicker Justin Tucker, the format of prices hurt his candidacy – Tucker was probably the best all around kicker in the league, Downing flat within 20 times, handling kickoffs, and appears as a placekicker rock solid. Nebraska Alex Henery was the first team and although it’s hard to argue with, Tucker certainly received a strong counterpart to the edge of the second team employed by the State of Oklahoma Dan Bailey – while Bailey with 24 / 28, 23/27 Tucker struck. Tucker was out automatic 40 yards, but Bailey has missed two from 30 to 39, and an extra point, an area in which the Texas kicker was perfect. Bailey was a little better from 50 +, hitting two of three, when Tucker hit one of two. Overall, a bit likes drawing placekickers, where once again the player the best team won the title.
While the announcement will certainly lost in the mass of speculation on the future of Greg Davis in Texas and the fact that most fans are willing to put the disastrous 2010 season football behind 5-7, the scarcity of Longhorns on all media-Big 12 teams shows how the Longhorns fell.
While it is certainly true that the media can be pretty lazy to vote for these teams, the fact is that the best players on the best teams always end up with most prices and it’s pretty hard to argue with, considering they were the best teams for a reason.
Senior defensive end Sat Acho was the only candidate worthy of the first team and was rewarded with a place. Junior linebacker Keenan Robinson and junior cornerback Aaron Williams were the only two other selections, as both made the second team.
As a sign of how far Texas has fallen this season, no Longhorns made the list on the offensive side of the ball and, frankly, none of them deserved particular, if a case can be made for the junior center David Snow, who has put together a solid season, but the offensive linemen are always going to be forgotten by those seasons like 2010.
