    This is how I see it.

    For Offense: With Jake and Dallas graduating, if TC can replicate what he did this year, I would say he runs away with it after losing 2 of the most dominant players to ever play in the FCS but Keelan Doss should have another shot at it as well.

    For Defense: I would take Rozeboom as a slight early favorite, but Bridges and Gooden should be in the running. Now if Cox replicates the season he just had I would say he garners votes and would still have 2 more years of eligibility.

    I had him in the just missed category. With Thomas gone he will need to step up and win games for them, unless they bring in a key transfer or someone on the team now steps up.

    Curious on you Bruce Anderson selection? Why him and not Lance Dunn? Dunn is quite a bit more explosive, and Iíd expect him to return to that form next year after the injury. The biggest issue NDSU backs will have next year is a log jam at the position. For that reason It is doubtful any NDSU player has a realistic shot at winning it. Doubtful for Stick as well since we donít throw that much. However, the offense as a unit is going to be something worth watching.

    There's a good chance he's not even our starter next year. We got a guy.

    Also, it's a possibility that Roc's absence may not be felt. Word on the street is there's some stuff coming down the pipeline.

    If Lehigh's defense improves (likely no chance at this point), but IF, Bragalone and Mayes will be in the conversation until the end. Lehigh still has a ton of talent waiting in the wings at WR. There might not be a Pelletier or Casey as of now but history says someone will emerge. I honestly think Lehigh's offense was better than SDSU's or SHSU's this year but their defense just destroyed any chance for a Top 10 type year.

    Dunn, Anderson, and Stick for NDSU will not put up enough individual #s for the Payton. The system won't allow for it.

    IMO that would be a big stretch considering the turnover in coaching and how the air raid probably inflated some of those stats compared to what you guys might use this year. Would it be safe to assume coach H will slow things down considerably?
