Not sure how Abdullah beats either White or Gordon as RB.

Will on 12/2/2013 @ 6:14pm EST Said:

I thought the Tatum-Woodson DB award was named after Jack Tatum (OSU) and Charles Woodson (Mich)???

Tom G on 12/2/2013 @ 6:14pm EST Said:

Because he is a better RB.

jason on 12/2/2013 @ 6:15pm EST Said:

That’s because he is the leading rusher in the Big Ten. No one had more yards!

Drew on 12/2/2013 @ 6:19pm EST Said:

Abbrederis over Gallon??? Sketchy. Countess leading the B1G in INTs is second team??? And not sure why Lewan… His season mediocre at best.

Mike on 12/2/2013 @ 6:22pm EST Said:

Not sure how Abdullah gets first team in coaches and media, is big ten rushing leader and doesn’t win running back of the year.

Brian Smith on 12/2/2013 @ 6:23pm EST Said:

Wonder if Carlos Hyde will flip off everyone when he accepts the award……

BRNTom on 12/2/2013 @ 6:26pm EST Said:

I am biased, but Abdullah singlehandedly put the entire weight of many of the Husker games on his shoulders. He average 130 yards/game by himself without the luxury of another solid partner like the White/Gordon combination. Just watch the last touchdown against Michigan or the final drive against Northwestern, and you’ll that without Abdullah, Nebraska would have far fewer wins this year. Not knocking those two guys as they are superb backs, but Abdullah meant more to his team than each of the individual Badgers.

Jeremy on 12/2/2013 @ 6:39pm EST Said:

Probably because Abdullah had more rush yards than either of them, behind a patchwork offensive line. Abdullah should have won Running Back of the Year.

Levi on 12/2/2013 @ 6:42pm EST Said:

right??? Hell….I’m not even sure hyde should have been first team either.

blueberrycuda on 12/2/2013 @ 6:43pm EST Said:

Rushing yards, Jason. Rushing yards.

Mary Brennan on 12/2/2013 @ 6:46pm EST Said:

Abdoullah won because he is the BEST running back. Stop letting your Nebraska-hate color the obvious. He is just simply better. GBR!

Brian on 12/2/2013 @ 6:47pm EST Said:

Probably because Abdullah was a beast even with a completely depleted O-line. Even Michigan State couldn’t stop him.

Mikey on 12/2/2013 @ 6:49pm EST Said:

I am surprised Langford wasn’t voted of White or Gordon after having 17 TDs this season and 7 straight over 100 yard games.

Joe on 12/2/2013 @ 6:51pm EST Said:

Jason.. Abdullah beat them out because he’s one of the best rb’s in the nation this year. His numbers and ability top the conference. The the teams stats just kept him out of the national spotlight a lot and out of Heisman talk

ItsAgoose on 12/2/2013 @ 6:55pm EST Said:

Because Abdullah outrushed them both behind a devastated OL. he went for 120+ against Sparty. Best player on his team. he was an absolute monster all year and meant more to NU than White or Gordon did to Wisconsin. And Abdullah is a team players. Isn’t leaving early for NFL. Wisky can say bye bye to both White and Gordon, as Gordon is the best NFL prospect out of the bunch for sure. But best this year in the Big 10? That’s Abdullah.

Carter on 12/2/2013 @ 7:12pm EST Said:

Carlos Hyde? Who votes for this. Do you have to be an Ohio State alum? What a crime, please justify how he was the Running Back of the Year. Based on what.

impalamino on 12/2/2013 @ 7:42pm EST Said:

Based on the fact that Hyde had six more touchdowns and only 278 less yards? Based on the fact that Hyde had 7.8 ypc vs. Abdullah’s 6.2? Based on the fact that Carlos Hyde put up all those numbers and didn’t even play in the first three games of the year?

Sorry, huskers, the fact that your OL was dinged up doesn’t automatically make your RB the best in the conference.

Matt on 12/2/2013 @ 8:39pm EST Said:

Hyde lead the B1G in yards per game! He also had the most yards in conference! Pretty clear. Why don’t you know what you are talking about before claiming someone does not belong!

bigtengrad on 12/2/2013 @ 8:48pm EST Said:

Calhoun “Defensive Lineman of the Year”-32 tackles; 19 solo, 13 asst
13.5 tfl; 7.0 sacks; 17 hurries; 1 int; 4 fbl rec.

Gregory-61 tackles; 37 solo, 24 asst
15.5 tfl; 9.5 sacks; 14 hurries; 1 int; 1 fbl rec.

But hey, they’re just stats straight from the Big Ten’s website. Who am I to judge?

PW4NU on 12/2/2013 @ 8:50pm EST Said:

Jason, it is simple, Abdullah is better and led the league in rushing. He also catches the ball extremely well out of the backfield. The Wisconsin backs are very good, but not better than Hyde and Abdullah. Not this year.

ken on 12/2/2013 @ 8:58pm EST Said:

Shazier numbers dwarfed Borlands

jordan1225 on 12/2/2013 @ 9:44pm EST Said:

Both Hyde and Abdullah were very good running backs. Watched them both. Hyde should put up numbers like that if he’s a decent RB. He has a very good offensive line, and while he has a quarterback that can take yards away from him, he has a QB that can open things up for him as well. I watched Ohio State a lot, they gave Hyde the ball a lot too. Abdullah had almost no line most of the season, plus was playing with a back up QB. The defenses knew Abdullah was getting the ball and still couldn’t stop him. Iowa was the best and he still had 86 yards rushing.

Any RB can have more touchdowns when Braxton Miller can get that RB within 5 yards. Abdullah didn’t have a QB or offense that could do that most of this year. He carried this NEB team on his back. He deserves the RB of the Year.

Charles Endorf on 12/2/2013 @ 10:38pm EST Said:

Charley says……Why go Hyde when a real man is already there….Abdullah….the best

Keenen on 12/2/2013 @ 11:32pm EST Said:

Im not sure how Shazier didn’t get LB of the year…Not to take anything away from a great player like Borland but his stats were better.

BadgerBrian on 12/3/2013 @ 2:14am EST Said:

How is Stave a honorable mention? When I watch a Wisc game and he fakes a handoff, I think “Who’s he going to overthrow/totally miss now?”

Joseph on 12/3/2013 @ 3:27am EST Said:

How many yards did Abdullah rush for against Michigan?

Joseph on 12/3/2013 @ 3:28am EST Said:

Abdullah had 85 against Iowa, and Hyde had 149. :/

Michael Tatro on 12/3/2013 @ 8:54am EST Said:

After “Mr. Hall’s” Double Finger Salute after being kicked out of the game on Saturday, he should receive NO Mention for anything, and should be severely reprimanded by the Ohio State University. Will he be? I doubt it. VERY Low Class thing to do!

Dylan on 12/3/2013 @ 2:51pm EST Said:

Has anyone even watched Carlos Hyde? He’s had those numbers missing 3 games and 1 game having only 4 carries. He is an absolute beast. Yes he has a good offensive line but he will still get hit and then drag players for an extra 5 yards. He definitely deserves RB of the year over anyone else in the BIG 10

PAWL on 12/3/2013 @ 5:39pm EST Said:

Are you serious? These awards are a joke.

1) Please tell me what the coaches are smoking. The 4th highest scoring team in the COUNTRY with the 2nd best rushing attak in the COUNTRY has ONE first team offensive lineman? #haters
2) Ryan Shazier dwarfs Borland in EVERY statistically category. It’s not even close. 22 TFL?? Is anyone even close to that? No. Shazier = LB of the year.
3) Do we just not care about punting average? Cameron Johnston led the league in punting average. Only honorable mention?
4) Braxton Miller is NOT a unanimous first team QB. Really? Who else is a better QB in this league? #joke
5) Lewan as O-Lineman of the year? Did these guys watch Michigan play this year?

What a bunch of idiots voting on these things.

Dave on 12/3/2013 @ 10:06pm EST Said:

Taylor Lewan? Mr. Grab a face mask? The only reason he could stop ANYBODY was because he holds onto the D players face mask. He cannot block downfield (couldn’t let go of the facemask). The next downfield block he makes will be his first. What a joke of a selection.

thebillwaltontrip on 12/4/2013 @ 12:59pm EST Said:

Abdullah had just 102 more rushing yards than Gordon on 73 more carries! And, not to mention, fewer touchdowns than Gordon as well.

Give Gordon the volume of carries that Abdullah had this season and he is over 2 grand on the ground easily.

Ryan on 12/4/2013 @ 11:53pm EST Said:

lots of rb controversy, Abdullah is the most complete running back in the B10. He also showed the most sportsmanship, he didn’t have to flex every time he scored like carlos hyde, who was also in trouble earlier in the year. what else do you need.

Bryan on 12/8/2013 @ 11:51am EST Said:

Hyde? One word suspension. I don’t care what his numbers are do you want someone that was suspended representing your conference?? I don’t!

Bryan on 12/8/2013 @ 11:55am EST Said:

Anyone watch an Iowa game? They show sportsmanship. When the scored they act like it’s not the first time or gonna be the last. Iowa has a team with class.

Jake on 12/8/2013 @ 5:37pm EST Said:

I’m a gopher fan and think that TE Max Williams should have been an at least second team for TE the kid is only a freshman. Not saying Devin Funchess, Michigan or C.J. Fiedorowicz, Iowa are bad, they both are pretty good but I think after watching and being at all home games Max Williams deserves this award.

Daniel on 12/27/2013 @ 1:31am EST Said:

Braxton Miller best QB no question. Led league in passing rating. Ameer Abdullah leads league in rushing with an injury plagued offensive line. Especially without Martinez, led Nebraska single handily. Best RB in conference, can catch and run. Receivers you have to go with Abbrederis and Robinson, both easy picks. Both can stretch the field and have great hands. Gallon is not far behind tho. Offensive line I believe was a little biased to say the least. Lets not look past the fact that Lewan blocked for one of the worst rushing teams in the conference. Got destroyed by Michigan State and Nebraska. Negative yards rushing? Defensive line Gregory is by far the best in the conference. 9.5 sacks?? No one else is close to him also had over 60 tackles. Second best d lineman Calhoun wasn’t even close to those stats. I understand Shazier had much better stats than Borland but I still believe Borland deserved DPOY. Ohio State’s defense was awful this year. Allowed 41 to Michigan? 35 to Illinois? 30 to NWestern? Not the same defense of old. And just watch how Borland plays. Defensive back wise, I believe Ricardo Allen, who led the league in INT’s, Countess and Ciante Evans were all tops in the secondary. Countess had 6 INT as well with Evans 4 more. I do think Dennard had a great season as well defensively. All four are great DB’s.

All this stuff is mere conjecture. Who really cares who is best? That stuff is for those of you that have NEVER had on a D-I football uniform.
