Morris Snubbed to 2011 2nd Team All SBC; Johnson & McRoy Honorable Mention



Florida Atlantic RB Alfred Morris has been named to the 2011 All Sun Belt 2nd Team. However Lance Dunbar, who had lesser numbers gets the nod at 1st Team.

So, let's see how it broke down head to head, and "do the math" here:



Looking at all the meaningful categores, which Morris won hands down it is apearant that he:

GOT SNUBBED.

Why, because they won more games?

Last time I checked individual awards were just that - individual.

BUT, if we are going to throw that in, then let's look at it:

FAU vs UNT…

Alfred Morris 162 yards on 24 carries.

Lance Dunbar 105 yards on 29 carries.

Is there really any question here?


Anyway, here's the entire listing…LB Randell Johnson, and OL Sam McRoy were recognized as an Honorable Mentions.

Every year someone on our team get shafted,by the awards committee. Alfred Morris go out there and do what"so live 45", Mike Lockley did. Make them eat crow. They don't know the size of the fight in the dog. Use the Missouri rule on them," show them".

Looking back at it getting snubbed by Sunbelt coaches and the press who elect the all sunbelt teams might not be that bad, 2009 Rusty Smith, not mentioned now in the NFL. Rob Housler, 2ND.team 2010,  now in the NFL. Lestar Jean, 2ND. team 2010, now in the NFL. Mike Lockley, 2ND. team now in the NFL. What would you take as a football player first team sunbelt or a roster spot in the NFL? :D :D :D :D :D  As Charlie in all dogs go to heaven, stated "you can't keep a good dog down".

Below is a lik to much more fair review Mike Huguenin of the eintire belt season and includes Morris as a 1st team all conference selection AND FAU LB Andrae Kirk named as freshman defensive player of the year! Something good for the Owls for a change!
