There was only one unanimous player on both teams, and that was Ohio State star defensive end Joey Bosa, who also was named Smith-Brown Defensive Lineman of the Year. Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett (media) and Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon (coaches) each earned unanimous nods on one team.

Melvin Gordon not unanimous on both teams! Who is voting on these teams that is so totally ingnorant about football?

the moderate on 12/1/2014 @ 7:53pm EDT Said:

interesting…no position for the best punt return man in the FBS…not even an honorable mention. Keep your head up De’Mornay, good things are coming your way.

Ry Proj on 12/1/2014 @ 8:47pm EDT Said:

1. I am a Penn State Alum and Season Ticket Holder.
2. I was hoping Anthony Zettel’s 3 INTs (1 TD from INT) would put him ahead of Joey Bosa. Bosa is good (14 sacks) but Zettel’s 8 sacks + 3 INT’s was just as impressive, in my humble opinion.
3. I find it crazy that Wisconsin did not have 1 player on the Media First Team. They are a Top 10 Defense Nationally and I am shocked the media chose to not single out a single individual.
4. To everyone (especially Penn Stater’s) who talked badly of Sam Ficken – Second Team All Big Ten; take that! Always knew Sam had it in him.

Dwight Shelton on 12/1/2014 @ 9:05pm EDT Said:

I can not believe MSU’s Langford did not make first team All Big 10. Who makes these decisions ?

Darren on 12/1/2014 @ 9:06pm EDT Said:

MG III as a second teamer on someone’s ballot? This is a top two Hesiman contender we’re talking about. Are the media votes public? Say yes please.

Scott Wettleson on 12/1/2014 @ 9:20pm EDT Said:

I agree Mark…..how Gordon isn’t unanimous is a complete joke. I’d like to see what clown(s) voted for someone else.

Locke on 12/1/2014 @ 9:33pm EDT Said:

Yeah, really like to see the list to see who in the media didn’t think Gordon was first team. Should lose their voting rights – and be publicly made fun of. Pretty sure I don’t want to read articles from that guy.

John on 12/1/2014 @ 10:09pm EDT Said:

Pretty embarrassing of the BIG coaches for not recognizing one of the league’s best DLmen in Austin Johnson. It’s almost like they don’t know what a good player is.

Sean Scallon on 12/1/2014 @ 10:10pm EDT Said:

UW Warren Herring’s not even an honorable mention? He plays against LSU and Northwestern and UW is undefeated.

Rodney Rienfeld on 12/1/2014 @ 10:12pm EDT Said:

Ameer on second team, not cool. All of your selections are invalidated and a joke.

John Dhein on 12/1/2014 @ 10:33pm EDT Said:

Please make public the name of the voter who thinks there are 2 running backs in the Big Ten that are better than Melvin Gordon.

That opinion is simply not justifiable to any rational person, so, obviously they need mental health assistance. Let us know who they are so we can make sure they get the help that is so badly needed.

Gary on 12/1/2014 @ 11:02pm EDT Said:

I have to agree with others, please name the media member who did not vote Melvin Gordon on the first team. Their media credentials should be revoked ASAP!

Darren W on 12/2/2014 @ 9:42am EDT Said:

Even if you don’t think MGIII is the best RB in the league, this means you didn’t even think he was a top 2. Someone needs an MRI on the panel of the media voters.

Lance S on 12/2/2014 @ 11:13am EDT Said:

I agree on the folks who want to know who didn’t vote for Gordon. I’d also like to know what media member didn’t vote for Coleman and what coach didn’t vote for Barrett. Sure, if Abdullah hadn’t gotten banged up he would have merited 1st team mention, but as it is, Gordon, Coleman, and Barrett were far above anyone else at their positions.

Andre on 12/2/2014 @ 5:37pm EDT Said:

How can you denied Leonte Carroo for first team by the coaches. Just because Rutgers is new to the conference no coaches give their players any respect.

Dylan on 12/2/2014 @ 10:37pm EDT Said:

What about punt returner and kick returner? De’Mornay Pierson-El freshman from Nebraska gets my vote!

someguy on 12/3/2014 @ 1:47am EDT Said:

The Big Ten coach of the year lost to Tim Beckman.

Jason on 12/3/2014 @ 7:07am EDT Said:

echoing comments of others…it is mind-boggling that there is a member of the media that can honestly believe Melvin Gordon is (at best) the third-best running back in the B1G. Seriously, if this individual has the audacity to vote as such, then he/she needs to present their case publically to the rest of us.

Tom T on 12/3/2014 @ 3:57pm EDT Said:

It is obvious an OSU coach will never win another COY award….OSU not even picked to win their division, lost a Heisman candidate at qb 2 weeks before the season, lost to a poor Va Tech team week 2 and ran the table from there….most improved team in the country. Also 3 yrs ago took over a 6-7 team and went undefeated….in addition osu beat the Illinois team by like 50, Jerry Kill’s team lost to that terrible Illinois team. Earle Bruce in 1979 will always be the last OSU coach to win the award…by the way Tressel won a national championship following a 7-5 year and never won the award so it really is no surprise

Richard Mayo on 12/3/2014 @ 7:05pm EDT Said:

Big Joke Minnesota Jerr Kill Coach Of Yhe Year With 8-4 And Urban Meyer go 24-0 In The Big Ten The Last 3 Years Come On

Kerry Ragsdale on 12/3/2014 @ 7:18pm EDT Said:

I understand there are always different opinions…but REALLY…yet another year where an Ohio State coach does not win Coach of the Year…there is such bias against Ohio State, it makes me angry. Hats off to Minnesota coach…..But not over Coach Meyer…HE HAS LOST TWO HEISMAN CANDIDATES AT QB…and we are still playing for Big Ten Championship….wow!!!!

Dan on 12/3/2014 @ 9:21pm EDT Said:

Coach Kill at Ohio State would have had them as national champs tow years in a row.

buci01 on 12/3/2014 @ 11:32pm EDT Said:

Apparently those in the so called Media need to take a Course in Coaching 101 and the Other Big Ten Coaches need to take a Refresher Course In College Football Coaching 101 so that together can without any doubt Vote for The Only Coach that deserved to be ,”Coach of The Year” , and that is Head Coach Urban Myer.!!! Yes he is at ,”The Ohio State University”!!!! There needs to be an Explanation as to the reason that with the voting ,it isn’t totally incorrect !!! Maybe the Voting isn’t more Crooked than a Dogs hind leg but is certainly Very Suspicious. Have Faith Go Bucks !!!!

Ed A on 12/4/2014 @ 12:12am EDT Said:

B10 has best backs in the country Cobb is the top back in nearly every other conference instead of 4th which is amazing the talent and depth at that position. Don’t have any issues with any picks though I am incredulous that Gordon wasn’t unanimous and should be but probably won’t be the Heisman winner, that kid is ridiculously talented.

As far as COTY – True it’s hard to argue with Meyer’s record obviously but when you are stocked with high school All Americans and recruit nationally in addition to being in a HS football breeding ground the Buckeyes should be dominate and he should be successful. Anyone criticizing Kill is simply ignorant. To understand what he has done to that program is amazing especially given that he didn’t have his first full recruits until this year. If you all are being honest with yourselves would anyone have predicted that the Gophers would be 3 points and 5 minutes away from a championship game birth? Your answer is no and that is what a great coach does with limited resources (easily the worst in the league) a state where football is not the top sport and who rarely are unable to attract any 4 or 5 stars not to mention seeing all of the top players in the state move on to other schools (understandably). The argument can be made that anyone coaching at OSU would have similar results which I disagree as Meyer is obviously a HOF coach. Kill is one of the few that would match what he has done.

Let’s hope to have a good bowl game and shut up the critics and especially the SEC (I live Atlanta)!

Tom T on 12/4/2014 @ 7:29pm EDT Said:

As to OSU having a stockpile of talent…isn’t recruiting part of how a good coach is evaluated. Secondly OSU only had 2 players on the first team in the media picks so apparently Urban did it without much talent!! Since Earle Bruce won the award in 1979 every team in the Big Ten has won atleast 2 COY awards while OSU has won 0 while winning 13 titles and 3 division championships????????

Andrea C on 12/5/2014 @ 10:18pm EDT Said:

I will admit what Coach Krill has done at Minnesota is amazing. However I still think Urban Meyer from Ohio State should have been COTY. He lost a QB at the Beginning of the year that was on the Top of the list for possible Heisman Candidate. Then he coaches JT Barrett, a QB that was the 3rd string QB up to the day before Braxton gets hurt, to be a Heisman candidate. Then JT gets hurt now OSU is on their 3rd String QB, Number 5 in the nation and playing for a B1G Championship. Not to mention we had almost a completely new O-Line this year, and several other new unproven players starting. If that doesn’t warrant COTY accolades then I don’t know what does. When OSU Lost Braxton Miller as their QB, Everyone expected OSU to have a mediocre year. The fact that OSU still had an amazing year is because of Great Coaching. I agree I don’t think OSU will see another COTY award as long as they are a perennial powerhouse team.
