    He played guard for your 2009 championship team, tackle last year, and center this year. He could win 3 BCS championships while starting at three different positions on your offensive line. Hard to even imagine.

    Congrats to Barrett. Hopefully he can bring in another Outland to go with it, but either way what a career.

    The Remington is one I've been coveting for us for a while. We seemed to be snake bit on that one.

    With all due respect, I don't see anywhere in my post where I implied, or said, he was selfish or narcissistic. I said he earned the award, was a great person, and very deserving. Moving from OT as an Outland winner, to center, is quite a feat in itself. Making the line calls, holding his own, and getting the line to play as one makes him one who earned, deserved, and showed greatness.

    Again, with respect, I don't see where your post is coming from.

    Hate that he didn't repeat as the Outland winner. Oh well...he has a nice collection.

    I didn't think you suggested those things...it just made me think of what a quality guy he has been for us.

    I don't see how he didn't repeat. The other guy wasn't that good. Just my opinion.

    It was because of Johnny Manziel being his QB.

    And believe me when I say, Manziel ran for his life most the time. So that was not indicative of how good of a lineman he was.

    Yah, and I'm not sure that's ever been done before.
