Oklahoma has won the most major awards in the 16-year history of the Big 12 with 27. Texas is next with 23 winners, followed by Kansas State (19); Oklahoma State (12), Iowa State (8), Texas Tech (7), Kansas (6), Missouri (6), Texas A&M (5haha) and Baylor (3).

We're not ones for hyperboles, but leaving Carrington Byndom off the 1st team, let alone 2nd, is worse than VY's Heisman snub.

No Texas OL on first or second team might be an indication that we had poor OL evaluation and development since 2005 under Brown, Davis, and McWhorter. Have you considered this before?

Seven players on the Texas defense earned all-conference honors, one on special teams, and zero on offense. Sounds about right.

Kheeston Randle should have a quibble with Kibble being named first team ahead of him but this was a down year for interior DL.

After years of funneling elite sasquatch TEs into the NFL, that position all but disappeared with Egnew being the only legit all conference player. Hanna spent the first half of the season playing with his sisters. The mysterious drop at TE was offset by an elite crop of WRs and QBs that you will be drafting on fantasy rosters in short time. The RB class had good depth but few elite talents. Did anybody have Terrance Ganaway on any preseason lists? Didn't think so. Had anybody outside of Waco even heard of Terrance Ganaway before this year? Would we be sitting at 10-2 and playing in a BCS bowl if Brown & Bergeron don't get hurt? Why do injuries happen at all, Huckleberry?

I think it's a safe bet we see Byndom, Phillips, Shipley, Bergeron -or- Brown -or- Gray all make appearances on next year's list. Who's your sleeper to emerge in 2012?

Mykkele Thompson, imo.

Along with our offseason priority to find a quarterback, let's find a corn-fed punter that can boom the ball 60 yards in case we can't find the former.
