    Is this their way of apologizing for getting so much wrong with their regular All Big 12 Team?

    The concept of them giving under-rated awards when they grant the regular awards seems oxymoronic.

    Is LJ considered underated? I thought he was pretty well known to those who are in the know.

    I was really impressed by Leonard Johnson when he played us. He played Blackmon very well.

    LJ is a beast. His only problem is that his numbers aren't up there with some other corners because teams just don't throw at him. Reeves has held his own most of the year, but teams were willing to take chances on him and stay away from LJ.

    Definitely some nice pub.

    Jarvis West is easily a candidate for all-underrated. I like the Rhoads nod — as head coaches go, who else would be The Guy in the Big 12 this season?

    Others I would stump for:
    Jeff Woody
    Albert Gary
    Two-thirds of Jared Barnett

    I'm almost appalled that Johnson made this list. He's got no business being on anything less than second team, and even first team he'd have a legit argument.

    The guy pretty much shut down McNutt and Blackmon (he had yards, but he had to earn every one of them). I can think of no one else in the nation who can claim that.

    For ISU players, looks like they took the votes on only 1-2 TV games.

    I am afraid this "thing" the media has with CPR is getting outta hand. I have a feeling that it's going to have an ending and it is not going to be pretty.

    I am pretty sure LJ got some good media coverage against OSU. There were quite a few people that watched that game, so I am sure he turned some heads when he limited Blackmon. He will also need to have a good showing at the combine but I think he is probably some NFL teams's watch list.

    They "took the votes" from only one person, David Ubben. Its his list.
