    Jesse Smith-from walkon to All Big 12

    being the other thread denigrated into an argument over who deserved COY, I thought Jesse deserved his own thread.

    I could not be happier for Jesse. He busted his rump to overcome his short-comings. He has a nose for the ball and heart to match - period.

    Re: Jesse Smith-from walkon to All Big 12

    Agree fully. By nature our fan base focuses on the negative instead of celebrating the few positives we have.

    Well deserved award for Jesse and a great story to see yet another ISU walk-on succeed. The guy got noticeably better every single year and frankly, that's about all you can ask from an athlete.

    Ton of people were writing him off this summer too saying he wasn't even good enough to play in the big 12. How's crow taste?

    Re: Jesse Smith-from walkon to All Big 12

    Has any linebacker won All-big 12 honors before? I feel like we have had a string of honorable mentions and 2nd teamers

    Re: Jesse Smith-from walkon to All Big 12

    what a terrific year and career this guy had for us. he deserves the award fully. i just hope that an nfl team will consider all of the intangibles that he posesses and gives him an opportunity to play on sundays. he tenacious.
