    Re: Klein and Knott are not Butkus Finalists

    Is Arthur Brown really better than Knott and Klein? Or is K-State better that Iowa State?

    In other words, would Arthur Brown have been picked if he wasn't on an undefeated team? Or would Knott and/or Klein have been picked if we had beaten K-State? Or would Knott and/or Klein have been picked if only one was on our team?

    Arthur Brown may be the best LB in all of college football. He will definitely be drafted higher than both Knott and Klein.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Agreed. Arthur Brown being on the list is correct. Klein and Knott being left off is ridiculous.

    Well, they can go kiss my Butkus.

    Besides the guy from Illinois, you have a point. It usually seems to work this way though.

    Re: Klein and Knott are not Butkus Finalists

    I doubt any more than 5 of these guys go before K&K in the draft. Te'o is odds on to win this, but after that, I'd put our guys up against any of them.

    Two Penn State guys? How did Iowa play against PSU vs us and the 2Ks?

    Brown is fast for a guy with safety size at linebacker. He doesnt have the size to. Play linebacker at the next level.

    Most of these awards are shallow and political. No way these two shouldn't be finalists.

    well they lost them both sooooo, what are we talking about again? (just don't care about iowa at this point in season)

    But man, these awards are just dumb, they are only going off team name alone for some of those guys (the ones already mentioned for ND and KSU are among the legits of course.) It's really a disgrace that at least 1 (let alone both) of our guys aren't on there. Klein and Knott both can have legit disputes with this list.

    Re: Klein and Knott are not Butkus Finalists

    If you're them, you can't have two LBs from Iowa State. While we all agree they deserve it, the selection committee would probably get some grief for taking both. So, who do you pick? They are both so good, they cancelled each other out.
