DI-Edge got absolutely ROBBED.

i didnt see this anywhere, and if anyone already posted, apologies in advance….

DI-Edge got absolutely ROBBED.

Take a look:


Gee (First Team All-Sun Belt Conference Special Teams):

722 KO Yds, 382 Rec Yds, 162 R Yds, 57 PR Yds = 1,323 AP Yds.


DI-Edge (NADA, Zilch, Zero, you get the drift):

1,004 KO Yds, 387 Rec Yds, 169 R Yds, 0 PR Yds = 1,560 AP Yds.


Bottom line = DI-Edge had 237 MORE yards…….


Now, just how do the "Officials" in the SBC front office "calculate" who the winner is again ???

I'm sorry, but that's absolute crap.

you mean like they felt "obligated"?

sorry, but i respectfully disagree…

they should give credit where it is due…we owned this category…no one else was even close…

not disagreeing with you, I know we've been at each other's throats about the b-ball. Just saying there still kids and all though the stats were close it wasn't a huge difference. Maybe Gee had a couple of plays to save a game or two, I don't know.

From todays Sun Sentinel & Huttons Blog….

"Now that the Belt has handed out its awards, I have a few more to add.

UTILITY PLAYER OF THE YEAR

DiIvory Edgecomb – Kick returner and running back

Edgecomb is kind of like an uncut diamond. Doesn’t look all that special, but don’t be fooled. The versatile Edgecomb, a junior from Miami, is the Owls first legitimate kick returner, and he not only can run but has great hands and runs good routes. It seems all his catches are big. "

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

no way bro…context is too often lost in e-mail and blogging…

i love your passion for the program…

difference of "opinion" keeps things honest and interesting…dont even feel that way… :)

Back to the topic though:

you may be right about the potential "game saving" plays taking place, i dunno…

but i do knwo that 300 yards is ALOT to argue against…

not too mention he didnt even get 2nd team…and the guy who got that, Desormeaux, was no where close either…

so they must have (as you suggested) factored in "other things"…but id still ike to get an explanantion and justification for thier "decision"…….

Must have been the punt return yards which Gee DOMINATED 57yds-0yds that put him over the top. ::) ???
