    Troll: Big 12 TE Snubs on Mackey List

    Big 12 tight ends snubbed on Mackey list - Big 12 Blog - ESPN

    "The John Mackey Award, given annually to college football's top tight end, released its annual watch list on Tuesday, but only one Big 12 player made the list.

    Baylor's Jordan Najvar was the only Big 12 representative on the 37-man list, and he caught 10 passes for 80 yards and a pair of touchdowns last season."

    "I'd also have given a nod to Iowa State's Ernst Brun Jr., the Cyclones' leading returning receiver. He caught 26 balls for 330 yards and six touchdowns last season, with all six coming in conference play or against Tulsa. He broke loose for a 69-yard score against the Golden Hurricane in the Liberty Bowl and had his first career 100-yard game."

    That's BS, even if they think this Baylor kid is going to have some breakout season.

    Re: Troll: Big 12 TE Snubs on Mackey List

    Yup, I'd call that a "snub"all right...

    of course, maybe they figured that Brun and Bibbs were going to split all of the catches...

    But that doesn't make much sense, either, when they BOTH have fifty catches this season, and ten touchdowns apiece...

    Who knew?

    Of course, fedorkowicz is on it. What a joke. And what a waste of his talent.

    Interesting you'd say that, since he's about the only thing on the UI offense that I'm concerned about this fall...

    I think that Bibbs and Brun are going to be a nice pair, and help establish a tradition at ISU for tight ends, much as Knott and Klein did with linebackers.

    If the Mackey list people missed that, that's their problem...

    I get what you are saying about tradition at TE but let's not forget that ISU has had some pretty good ones here and there even in the last couple decades or so.
