Too much UT bias on your part, Beerdude...Leinart and Quinn are much better passers than Young, Rod Wright's season pales in comparison to Hawk's and Dumervil's, and Huff didn't have as good of a season as Williams...

That is because they don't throw to the receiver that Jimmy Williams is covering.

A couple things I'd change: Best Passer award goes to Brady Quinn, best athlete at QB would go to Vince Young, maybe offensive MVP or the equivalent to Young as well. Best RB I would go with DeAngelo Williams, best overall player, best overall athlete, anything like that would be Bush, and overall offensive MVP could be Bush or Young. Heisman or overall MVP to Bush. Also, why do you have A.J. Hawk as the best defensive player but not the best lineman/linebacker? Shouldn't the best overall defensive player also be the best at his position?

Actually, the award is not for "best passer". It's for "best QB". So when you factor in this fact:

Div-1A Passer Effiency rankings:

1. Vince Young, Texas 182 285 2769 63.9 9.7 26 10 13 168.56
2. Rudy Carpenter, Arizona St 133 193 1806 68.9 9.4 13 2 20 167.68
3. Brian Brohm, Louisville 207 301 2883 68.8 9.6 19 5 17 166.73
4. Drew Olson, UCLA 232 354 3055 65.5 8.6 31 3 24 165.23
5. Brady Quinn, N Dame 263 405 3633 64.9 9.0 32 7 15 162.90
6. Phil Horvath, N Illinois 168 238 1995 70.6 8.4 18 8 15 159.23
7. Troy Smith, Ohio St 130 209 1940 62.2 9.3 14 4 13 158.45
8. Matt Leinart, USC 254 391 3450 65.0 8.8 27 7 14 158.29

On top of what he was able to do on the ground, I think Vince has every bit an argument for the top QB award as Brady or Leinart.

I personally feel that lineman both offensive & defensive don't get the respect they deserve thats why. the linebackers soak up box scores with tackles & sacks while the interior lineman grapple with two 300+ pounders. IF Haloti Ngata for example was nominated for the Bednarik Award as the nations top defensive player I would have picked him as well, without him Oregon would really suck defensively, as a matter of fact when the came and played Houston at Relient he was clearly a man amongst boys absorbing three players and controlling them. when the Ducks played USC all the damage was done around the corners the middle was completly plugged by one man simply amazing specimen, things that don't show up in stats

I'm not sure where all this Jimmy Williams hype comes from yes I've seen him play and he is a great prospect but I don't see him playing CB in the NFL he reminds me more of a FS or even a SS, I think he is around 220 lbs and 6'2" and is not great in man to man coverage plus VA TECH fell just a little short this season didnt they.......meanwhile Huff played a major role in the Texas secondary and remain undefeated in the National Championship game and that has to count for a little more. Huff is also a Safety type of DB with good size 6'0 205 he has better speed and seems better school'ed reading pass coverage and could play corner in the NFL too. Also he has improved the most this season and should be seriously considered in the same vein as the best db's in College. OK I'm a too!

I have no idea how the QB rating is computed in college but it doesn't make sense at all. For instance, Young has 63.9% completions, 2769 yards, 9.7 ypa, 26 TDs to 10 INTs (2.6 TDs/INT), while Brohm has 68.8% completions, 2883 yards, 9.6 ypa, and 19 TDs to 5 INTs (3.8 TDs/INT). Brohm has a much higher completion percentage, about the same yards per attempt, and much better TD-INT ratio, yet has a lower rating. According to a calculator I found on the internet, their NFL QB ratings would come out to:

Vince Young. Texas.......... 182/285-63.9%-2769-9.7-26/10- 111.6 - 5th
Rudy Carpenter, Arizona St 133/193-68.9%-1806-9.4-13/2- 116.6 - 2nd
Brian Brohm, Louisville....... 207/301-68.8%-2883-9.6-19/5- 113.4 - 3rd
Drew Olson, UCLA............ 232/354-65.5%-3055-8.6-31/3- 118.3 - 1st
Brady Quinn, N Dame.........263/405-64.9%-3633-9.0-32/7- 112.7 - 4th
Phil Horvath, N Illinois........168/238-70.6%-1995-8.4-18/8- 107.0 - 7th
Troy Smith, Ohio St...........130/209-62.2%-1940-9.3-14/4- 106.9 - 8th
Matt Leinart, USC.............254/391-65.0%-3450-8.8-27/7- 108.5 - 6th

Just thought I'd figure those out because I've wondered all year how the college rating is computed when it seems that better stats (in Brohm's or Olson's cases vs. Young) while having a lower rating, so these are what there stats would yield in an NFL rating.

Louisville's Dumervil wins Nagurski award

December 5, 2005
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Louisville senior defensive end Elvis Dumervil won the Bronko Nagurski Trophy on Monday night as the best defensive player in college football.

Dumervil, the Division I-A leader with 20 sacks and 10 forced fumbles, edged Virginia Tech cornerback Jimmy Williams, Alabama linebacker DeMeco Ryans, Oregon tackle Haloti Ngata and Penn State end Tamba Hali in voting for the award.

The 13-year-old award is presented by the Football Writers Association of America and the Charlotte Touchdown Club. It's named for the former Minnesota All-American, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The 6-foot, 256-pound Dumervil helped the Cardinals (9-2) earn a spot in the Gator Bowl against Virginia Tech.

win some lose some :brickwall

I really like Dumervil, he has valuted his way into the 1st rd of the 06 draft, as I've made comparables to Dwight Freeney in the past its not a shock, however Oregon owes in large part its success to Haloti Ngata. It would be the upsets of upsets if he were to win any national awards of recognition because nose tackles in a 3-4 don't have those kinda stats (20 sacks are you kidding me).

Seriously I've followed the draft for over 30 years, but only in the last two because of my love for the Texans have I researched and got this in depth (some may call it another name) but in 04 my gut feeling said the Texans would in fact draft Vince Wolfork with the 10th overall pick (I was wrong and happy to be so) but mark my words Ngata is the finest NT I have ever seen in College football. will he crack the top 10? will Dumervil?

I like your pick here I was going to go with Vern but instead went with the numbers, very un-beerlover. I also feel he would be a better fit with the Texans as he is a more capable blocker & Carr knows we need that
