Well, that's some bullsh*t.


Colt McCoy was named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week by the media after texas' blowout win over Kansas.

This is really a crock. Taylor Potts shredded Oklahoma's stout defense like few other have, rolling up 388 yards and 2 TDs passing in Tech's blowout win over Oklahoma. texas was expected to blowout Kansas, y'all were a 6.5 point underdog to Oklahoma. Your win was an upset, and a very impressive one at that, while texas' win was expected.

For comparison sake, when McCoy faced OU, he had 127 yards passing, 1 TD, and 1 INT. He led texas' offense to a gaudy 16 points on 269 yards of total offense. Potts led a Tech offense that scored 41 points while rolling up 549 yards of total offense. Clearly, Potts did a better job than McCoy against Oklahoma, and given the two opponents both players faced last weekend, Potts deserved to win Offensive POTW.

Many of you may not care about the player of the week awards, and that is fine; I just thought it was ridiculous that the media is awarding McCoy because he earned a career mark last weekend (most career wins for a QB), and ignored Potts' performance. I think the media has already done enough for McCoy in keeping him in the Heisman conversation even though he doesn't belong there.
