Phil Steele's Postseason All Big 12 Team
Don't get Geno over Landry.
Crazy that Tress Way wasn't listed.
Other than that pretty good

I'm surprised David King was listed. Wasn't expecting anyone on our DL or LB corp to be picked.

I thought Tress Way had a shitty year.

Strange that Gage Ikard made 1st team. I guess because of the job he performed as a converted center but I thought that Ikard made a lot of bad snaps this year. The two that stick out the most are the 22 yard loss on the snap over Landry's head that killed a drive that would've given us a lead over ND in the first half when we were marching down field with ease against their defense and the snap that was late to LJ that almost caused us a lost fumble (that was called and INC pass on replay) that I think was supposed to be a direct snap to Finch. The coaches never said what the play was supposed to be or where the blame should've gone but said it wasn't Landry or Finch's fault so I can only assume that it was Ikard's since Landry looked surprised when the ball hit him in the face.
Surprised that we even had a running back on the list, as few times that we ran the ball but Damien Williams was the 3rd best RB in the Big 12 at #72 with 75.4 ypg over Hubert who was #76 with 74.3 ypg, Klein #78 with 74.2, Seastrunk #82 with 72.8 ypg, Pierson #90 with 69.1 ypg, Buie #94 with 68.1 ypg and Martin #98 with 65.9 ypg. Randle and Sims were the only two Big 12 RBs in the top 20. Sims only played in 9 games and had 218 carries yet our lead RB only had 160 carries in 12 games.
Nick Florence was #1 in total offense over (#2 Johnny Manziel) #6 Geno Smith, #9 Seth Doege and #10 Landry Jones. Why wasn't Nick a Heisman candidate? Oh yeah, it's a popularity contest. Nick Florence was #3, Geno Smith #4, Landry Jones #5 and Seth Doege #6 in passing yards. Klein was #30 and #71 respectively but somehow was #1 because the hype from beating OU.
Tress Way was the 17th ranked punter in the country and by far the best punter in the Big 12. I guess most of the Big 12 punters just had their best game against OU. The 2nd best punter was Van Der Kamp at #47.

You are probably right. He had some horrible punts this year and I thought he had a pretty disappointing year compared to how he had punted in the past.
Also really surprised that Stills was the only receiver listed. I thought our receivers were some of the best all season long. Not sure any of them should have been first team but I thought Brown and/or Saunders would break into the 2nd or 3rd team.

Hey, hey...OU had a 2nd team TE!
