Where’s the respect for Le’Veon Bell? He is the conference’s leading rusher by over a hundred yards and has been quite consistent over the course of the season. Montee Ball was banged up and quite inconsistent during the entire first half of the season. Whoever decides the winner of these individual awards flat out got the Ameche-Dayne Running Back of the Year winner wrong.

It’s dumbfounding how biased the coaches are. The Buckeyes don’t have anybody on the 1st team offense! But Wisky has 4! Enough said.

How does 18 of 24 on field goals get you tied with someone whose 17 of 18?

Until the Coach’s vote is made public, All-Big Ten honors are always a farce. You have certain coaches not voting for certain schools’ players/coaches (for recruiting purposes or otherwise).

It’s never a bad thing to add transparency to the coach’s vote.

Hyde?? what the heck, he needs to hand the award over to Roby who is the rightful owner of that award. Hyde was terrible and on a terrible team, plus the only time we heard of him was when he was making a name for himself in the public docket!

I am amazed that the outstanding running back award does not bare the name of the only two time Heisman Trophy winner, Archie Griffin. Wow, truly incredible!

Have you watched any tape on Micah Hyde? He is a terrific guy and has been for years. He chased down faster running backs before scoring touchdowns. Iowa’s offense was almost non-existent but they had a good defense when they spent most of the game on the field. He also returns kicks. He covers more turf than Roby. Having played both for two years. Hyde deserves this award.

I think Ohio State and Nebraska were left out?!

Jeff Rieppel on 11/27/2012 @ 11:46am EDT Said:

Great to see Penn State players recoginized for their season.
Even the national media is showing some good things for PSU.

Billy on 11/27/2012 @ 2:58pm EDT Said:

I feel a lot of good players were overlooked – One glaring example is Ciante Evans, defensive back for Nebraska…. HELLO !

Jay on 11/27/2012 @ 6:28pm EDT Said:

Too bad Big Ten coaches can’t show more maturity. Withholding votes for Ohio State players because you have a grudge against their coach only robs deserving players who have performed.
