    Knott, Klein SI All American Snubbs

    Matt Barkley, Jadeveon Clowney top 2012 Preseason All-America Team - NCAA Football - SI.com

    Sports Illustrated named 1st and 2nd team All Americans today. Neither Knott nor Klein were on either of these lists. I think as the top 2 returning tacklers in the Big 12, at least one of them deserves to be on one of these lists.

    Saw that earlier....hadn't even heard of Arthur Brown at K-State, but whatevs. None of our players are going to get individual national attention until our team wins more consistently. Nature of the sport.

    Arthur Brown is really good...but not as good as Knott and Klein.

    Unfortunately NFL scouts will probably not agree. Brown is a beast.

    This reminded me to unlike them on Facebook (I liked them to participate in some poll or something).

    Boycotted SI many years ago. Cancelled my subscription right before the LA Olympics due to pre-Olympics coverage. Rarely, rarely ever read an article in free SI magazines in lobbies, offices, etc.

    Re: Knott, Klein SI All American Snubbs

    Knott and Klein do make a ton of tackles each year, but not many of them are behind the line of scrimmage. Much of this is due to a lackluster defensive line, but I think the perception of K & K is that they just make a bunch of tackles 5 yards downfield.

    Also, they sort of have the tag of "best LBs you've never heard of on a team that you rarely see on national TV", which doesn't help them. This is why you see some guys like Mantei Te'o from Notre Dame on lists like this - they are household names on popular teams.

    The only issue I have is Khaseem Greene from Rutgers....Really? Arthur Brown is legit and I can agree with that placement...

    Pretty sure Arthur Brown was the guy that blew up the 4th and 1 for ISU at the end of the KSU game last year. Ya, that guys is good.
