  2. [2020] Week 14 POTW

    Week #14 OPOTW QB Bryce Thompson, Duke 27 of 35 for 400 yards, 6 TD, 0 INT, 2 carries for 9 yards, 0 TD vs Georgia Tech Redshirt freshman Bryce Thompson lit it up against Georgia Tech in a huge, 6 touchdown game. He was able to sit down for a quick interview this week commemorating his first National Award. Bryce, 6 touchdowns against Georgia Tech. How were you able to pick apart their defense so easily? We had a good gameplan going in, and our receivers made plays all day. We were able to establish the run and dominate on offense all day. You hit your junior receiver Spaczek for 3 touchdowns. What's your relationship like with your receivers and this offense as a whole? Sean is a great leader of our offense. One of the smartest players I've played with. This offense as a whole has had 4 starters each of the last 4 years at QB. So their ability to adjust is great. We aren't the oldest team, but we really gelled this season and learned from both our wins and losses. Being able to put on performances like this for upperclassmen and alumni is always a blast. You're a freshman yet still performing at a very high level. How has the transition from high school ball to college ball been? It was tough. But having that extra redshirt year and a veteran receiving group and experienced coaching staff helped slow the game down. Plus we have a great QB room that supports each other and helps our team be the best we can be. Duke seems poised to make some noise heading into bowl season. Any opponent you'd really like to face? Obviously we are looking one game at a time. Especially since our next game is against Carolina. But we've seen those bowl projections. Coach wouldn't like this but playing Kansas might be fun for everyone else but him. Thanks for the interview Bryce! Before I leave do you have any shout outs? Go to Hell Carolina -------------------------------------------------------------------- Week #14 DPOTW DE Ilan Kuhn, USC 3.5 Sacks, 1 FF, 1 FR, 1 Tackle vs UCLA Ilan Kuhn stormed into national relevency with a 3.5 sack performance against the throw happy UCLA Bruins.

    Week #13 OPOTW RB Solomon McLaughlin, Texas Tech 28 carries for 202 yards, 4 TD vs Iowa State Super true freshman Solomon McLaughlin comes up huge in Texas Tech's big win over Iowa State. We here at the NCAA Player of the Week office tried hard to schedule the Red Raider for an interview but alas it was not to be. Congratulations Solomon on the first of many future awards! -------------------------------------------------------------------- Week #13 DPOTW CB David Triplett, Missouri 2 INT, 4 Tackles vs #14 Tennessee True freshman David Triplett wins this week's National Defensive Player of the Week award to complete the true freshman sweep. He was able to sit down for a short interview. Congrats David, you picked off Adrian Goldson twice in Missouri's big victory over rival Tennessee. How were you able to make so many plays on the ball? I watched a lot of film this week, man. Coach vtgorilla said he needed to focus on stopping the run this week, so he left me in charge of coordinating the pass defense. Watching all those Tennessee games gave me some ideas on how we could surprise Adrian with coverage, you know. He's a good player, but sometimes he telegraphs, man. He's gonna keep gettin better though, so I gotta keep digging or he'll get me back next year. He got me last time, so it was my turn...we played against each other in high school a couple years ago. You're currently leading the SEC in interceptions. Did you expect to do this as a freshman? It's a surprise, you know. Everyone always talks about how good the SEC is, but I walked in and I'm the best corner in the conference? I think a lot of players are afraid of gettin beat, so they hold something back. I never hold back, man. I didn't really even know if I was going to play this year...Coach told me I would when he recruited me, but coaches be sneaky, man. You're a true freshman, just last year you were still a senior in high school. What's been the biggest jump from high school football to college football? The game is the same to me, you know. I've heard people say that college is faster, but it's the same to me, man. The biggest difference is just that the wideouts that I'm guarding are so good each week. It's like I play against the best opposing wideout from my high school career every single week. These dudes are giants and they're not afraid to battle, for sure. Missouri is at the top of the SEC East with two games left. It'll be a tough ask, but who do you think this team needs to play at a higher level for the Tigers to win the division? I don't think its a secret that the defense is the weak spot on this team, man. I'm not about to call out my boys, but we all need to keep playing at this new level we elevated to. We were soft when the season started, but we worked hard and got better. When you look at the division...man, we just didn't think it was possible to get back on top after such a bad start, you know. Now that we have a shot, everyone is all in. My boys are showing up early for weight training and stuff. You can see it on their faces, man. Thanks for the interview David! Before I leave do you have any shout outs? Yeah. What's up Salvatore Tanner? -------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks to vtgorilla for his interview this week. Best of luck to all the players in Week 14! Previous National POTW Award Winners
  9. Of Note: Oates, Black, Bowman, and Kaufman. Truly elite set of quarterbacks in this lineup Huge start to the career of Solomon McLaughlin. The super freshman tore up Iowa State Morgan Patton, put some respeckt on that name. Dangerous receiver for Penn State Xavier Collier take a bow.

    Week #12 OPOTW RB Trevon Yeldon, Oregon 24 carries for 160 yards, 4 TD, 2 receptions for 28 yards, 1 TD vs UCLA Trevon Yeldon, one of the premier running backs in the nation, wins his first career National Offensive Player of the Week award. He was able to sit down for a quick interview. Trevon, 5 total touchdowns, 4 on the ground. How were you able to gash UCLA over and over again to such great success? For us, it all started with defense. We got the ball so many times on O because our D shut them down. We knew we had a little advantage over their defensive line, so our big guys up front did some work on the front seven and I found holes all over the place. The first couple felt pretty normal, but the reception was a lot of fun. My first big day catching the football. OLine put me in great spots all day, coach called a series of plays that kept them off-balance, and I saw the endzone a bunch. It was a lot of fun. You're having a dominating sophomore season, by my count the 6th leading rusher in the nation. Did you expect such success this early on? I just try to work hard every day in practice so that when gametime comes, I can put it all together. After last year, when I was worried about the transition from my redshirt to actually playing games at this level, I feel much more confident in my abilities. But the switch in offensive scheme really plays to my strengths. I think Coach for seeing that as the way forward. While I've got my eye on the NFL at some point, I think we have a lot left to do here at Oregon. We saw you split out wide several times. How have you been developing as a receiver? I've just been feeling more confident in my hands, getting them up and ready to catch sooner. Even though I lined up wide once or twice, I really only caught screens this week. But I do like thinking about getting out wide, putting a juke on a corner or DB and then hauling in a pass. Just trying to do like my idol, Marcus Barry. You see a power guy catch the ball, that's what i wanna do. Your teammate Tre'Davious won national defensive player of the week. Any ideas cooking in the coaches room? A splitback formation with you on one side and Dikes on the other? I can't talk about it Sage! My lips are sealed! Thanks for the interview Trevon. Before I leave do you have any shout outs? Shout out to the fans! Go Ducks! -------------------------------------------------------------------- Week #12 DPOTW CB Tre'Davious Dikes, Oregon 4 INT, 3 Tackles, 1 TD vs UCLA Tre'Davious Dikes has a record breaking 4 interception game as Oregon trounced UCLA. He completes the week sweep for Oregon in national awards. Tre'Davious, not one, not two, not three, but FOUR interceptions this past week. How were you able to play so well against UCLA and the nation's leading passer Steven Gore? Well, we studied tape, and we saw some tendencies. We saw that he liked to play quickly to the outside and that's where I trained my eyes. I play with my heart first, and my head second, and sometimes the heart just wants the ball more. I shut down their #1 wide receiver and just saw lots of balls headed my way. I haven't had the best hands all year, so I've been working on that in practice, and coach has been on me to make some plays with picks and turnovers. Turns out, played the right team at the right time. What was it like taking back the touchdown, by my records the first in your career. That particular throw, once I got my hands on it, I knew it was clear sailing to the endzone. Like I said, we'd seen Gore throw these outs, and if you can bait and then jump one, you had a pretty open path. We saw it against ASU, we saw it against Arizona...so I grabbed it and...I don't know, man...it was glorious. First TD, first dance in the endzone. It was great. Everything I'd been working towards all season kind of led up to that moment. To get a touchdown in a big win like this...awesome. Fans have been wanting to know, and you don't have to answer this honestly if you can't, but will we see you on offense this season . Aw, man, are you trying to get in trouble with Coach? I'd love to catch the ball and show off my playmaking skills on O, but this group of dudes in the secondary are so fun to play with...and they're so young, they need to me to help teach and guide. My best fit is here on D. Oregon is still in the hunt for a PAC-12 North title. What do you think is the toughest obstacle left in your path? We have a tough one next week at Utah. They have some solid receivers and Culver is really good. We thought we'd walk over Washington, and their freshman came up and bit us, so we aren't taking anyone lightly. ASU is also really good, then play little brother in the Civil War. Gotta win the rest if we want the division. Thanks for the interview. Before I leave, do you have any shout outs? Gonna give a shout out to Dr Waylock in philosophy. That guy is the most passionate teacher on campus and he's really made me evaluate some of my own beliefs. Thanks Brett! -------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks to Bingo for his interviews this week. Best of luck to all the players in Week 13!

  16. [2020] Top Recruits and Their Commitments

    I think the player with the most ability to tear things up next season is going to be Rice's WR Deontray Clay. Him and Eric McLean should make an instant connection. Its bittersweet to see the SEC as the recruiters of the best high school players in the nation. Part of me says hooray as we stay one of the most talented conferences. The other part of me is not excited to play Mareko Mea'ole, Brett Combs, Omar Powell, and Jarvis Bolton.
  17. I'd like to start off this piece by saying thanks to all the hardworking users on this site maintaining conference statbooks. Without your leg work, articles like this would not be possible. Special thanks to Darman, Storm, Danger, and Tuscan for assisting with this piece. Yes we get it, the current crop of seniors entering the NFL don't excite the fans at home. Outside of Tanner Bowman, none of the current seniors look like guys that have the ability to put butts in seats at the next level with eyepopping plays. You know what crop does look great though? Lets take a look at the highly touted class of freshmen quarterback who are taking the world of college football by the horns. Bolded stats below are the leaders for the group. TIER 1 - The Cream of the Crop QB Bryce Thompson, Duke, 167 of 274 (60.95%) for 1980 yards, 13 TD, 6 INT (132.93), 41 carries for 145 yards, 8 TD QB J.T. Youngblood, Hawaii, 161 of 230 (70.00%) for 1887 yards, 18 TD, 9 INT (156.92), 34 carries for 247 yards, 7 TD QB Adrian Goldson, Tennessee, 170 of 247 (68.83%) for 2116 yards, 18 TD, 7 INT (159.17) No playing around here. These are the guys that look on the fast track to be future NFL superstars. Bryce Thompson has been electric this season, loading up with touchdowns on the ground and keeping the ball safe through the air. JT Youngblood has carried the load for Hawaii, and while their schedule hasn't exactly been intimidating, what he's been able to do should not be discounted. Then you have perhaps the best pure pocket passer of the group in Adrian Goldson. The Vol's young signal caller has put up awesome numbers this season against tough opposition, but he also has the best supporting cast around him. All in all, this group comes into every game with veteran canny years beyond their ages, and look set to dominate their conferences for years to come. TIER 2 - Future Premier Passers QB Alexander Cassidy, So Miss, 160 of 241 (66.39%) for 1970 yards, 16 TD, 6 INT (151.98) QB Jake Davis, Washington, 156 of 253 (61.66%) for 1948 yards, 17 TD, 8 INT (142.19) QB Riley West, Western Kentucky, 167 of 266 (62.78%) for 2119 yards, 20 TD, 9 INT (147.74) Three pocket passers in the second tier, and they've all done very well as the season went along. Alexander Cassidy was extremely highly touted out of high school, decided to stay close to home, and while I wouldn't say his competition has been eyepopping, his efficiency and ability to keep the ball safe has him as a top tier guy for years to come. True freshman Jake Davis started the year off shaky, but has been quietly adapting well to the college game of late as Washington coach DeanDean slowly schemes around the ability of his talented passer. Riley West may be the surprise of the season for all of you reading this article. Western Kentucky has gotten relatively no attention, but that suits West just fine. Play well enough, and eventually the attention will come, and here we are. He leads all freshmen in passing touchdowns and I would not be surprised if he held that title for the rest of the season. TIER 3 - Works In Progress QB Sam Milner, TCU, 140 of 243 (57.61%) for 1559 yards, 11 TD, 10 INT (118.21), 42 carries for 192 yards, 1 TD QB Christian Graham, Kansas, 153 of 258 (59.30%) for 1850 yards, 16 TD, 13 INT (129.92) QB Parker Townsend, Arizona State, 138 of 240 (57.50%) for 1557 yards, 11 TD, 5 INT (122.95), 43 carries for 233 yards, 6 TD QB David Edmondson, San Diego State, 75 of 137 (54.74%) for 843 yards, 8 TD, 3 INT (121.32) Very interesting players in this group. Frankly, the 6 before this tier play well beyond their years, and this group plays like the freshmen they are supposed to be. That's just a testament to how well the players in the top two tiers have played this season. Sam Milner is a guy that has a lot of pressure on him from TCU, especially with how good the team's recruiting has been. Milner is the first guy to really come in with super star potential and aspirations, suceeding the often criticized Nathan Burden. If he can figure it out in the years to come, TCU will be a national contender. Same idea with Christian Graham. He's got the big bodied Malcolm Davis on the outside, but he needs to keep his interception numbers down. Parker Townsend has solid numbers for the Sun Devils. But he needs to improve his offensive efficiency, especially his completion rate and yards per attempt. David Edmondson is in this group despite having only played a few games unlike the rest of these season starters. Increasing his completion percentage can go a long way to turning this California player into a future first round draft pick. TIER 4 - Needs Improvement QB Nathan Singletary, Texas A&M, 185 of 329 (56.23%) for 2178 yards, 15 TD, 12 INT (119.59), 21 carries for 106 yards, 2 TD QB Chris Billings, Charlotte, 165 of 291 (56.70%) for 1855 yards, 14 TD, 13 INT (117.19), 31 carries for 180 yards, 0 TD QB Tim Pritchard, MTSU, 239 of 452 (52.88%) for 2352 yards, 15 TD, 18 INT (99.57) Nathan Singletary has the benefit of Jarvis Ward being an extremely high level wide receiver on the outside. Regardless, he needs to figure out how to have a higher completion rate, and keep his interceptions down. If he didn't have Ward, I'd be terrified of seeing what his numbers would actually be. Chris Billings is another high profile true freshman but he's got a lot going against him. He's a big fish in a little pond. Not even that, it is a slowly drying puddle. There simply aren't the players around him for Billings to find any great success this freshman year, and it's showing with his numbers. C-USA teams are just tee-ing off on the talented quarterback, and he's suffering because of it. Then we have Tim "Pitch It" Pritchard. He's thrown the most pases of any freshman quarterback, has the most yards, and the most interceptions. Pure volume is the name of the game for Tim and he just does not have the ability right now to win games with his arm. He needs a strong running game that takes pressure off his passing ability, and it's to be seen if the Blue Raiders will give it to him.
  18. Of Note: Too many great quarterback performances. Bowman, Black, Davidson and Foster all look like future First Round Draft Picks Trevon Yeldon showed how to do it on the ground and through the air, what a performance by him against UCLA. Luke Cobb did Luke Cobb things as he roasted NC State all morning long FRESHMAN ALERT: Quincy Hobson did his best to keep Wazzou in it against Notre Dame FRESHMAN ALERT: What a performance by Marcus Coles as the Vols beat Florida in a huge SECE game Bradley Rainey, 2 picks as a linebacker, incredible And obviously this week's DPOTW will be Tre'Davious Dikes. What a game out of the corner from Oregon.

  20. Bowman is definitely storming back into Heisman contention. Trufant's also got a strong path to make his way to a Doak Walker. By my count, Joseph Thurston is one of 3 receivers over 1000 yards so far this season (JC Weldon, Luke Cobb), and he's got a strong chance at the Biletnikoff. Pretty surprised to see just how low the B1G tackle leaders' numbers are. I expected at least a few players in the 50s.
  21. Three-quarters of the season is done and all of the SEC teams have now played 9 games. Lets take a look at the conference favorites for the end of season national awards! To all the players below, get ready for national hype! Heisman Trophy Davey O'Brien Award Walter Camp Award SEC Contenders: QB Marcus Black, Auburn - 186 of 257 (72.37%) for 2445 yards, 24 TD, 2 INT (181.55 passer rating), 34 carries for 181 yards, 5 TD Marcus has been amazing this season, and has performed as the best player for the best team in the SEC. The undefeated Auburn Tigers are headlined by one of the most efficient college quarterbacks ever to grace the game. He's in a strong position to win the Heisman Trophy, and at the very least deserves a seat at the table. QB Elias Allen-Hollis, LSU - 190 of 262 (72.52%) for 2595 yards, 22 TD, 3 INT (181.14 passer rating), 36 carries for 239 yards, 3 TD Elias is right there with Marcus Black. Eerily similar numbers for the top two signal callers in SEC football. EAH has Black beat in yards, but Black has the total touchdown numbers and the undefeated records. It's going to be a tremendous clash when these two teams play each other near the end of the season. Doak Walker Award SEC Contenders: RB Ethan Newby, Florida - 231 carries for 1253 yards (5.42 ypc), 19 TD, 1 FUM, 3 receptions for 40 yards (13.33 ypr), 1 TD If you were to tell me Ethan Newby would be the SEC's top quarterback in the preseason, I'd have laughed in your face. Some how, some way, the Oregon native has torn up this season, and is on track for one of the great all time rushing seasons. Newby's 19 touchdowns are the most out of any non-quarterback in the Southeastern conference, and the fact that he's able to be so productive and still be efficient is a testament to just how well he is carrying the ball this season. RB Jayden Huff, LSU - 195 carries for 1133 yards (5.81 ypc), 18 TD, 0 FUM, 3 receptions for 52 yards (17.33 ypr), 1 TD Even more efficient than Newby has been LSU's senior running back Jayden Huff. Huff has been a force to reckon with in 2020, piling up yards and touchdowns against every team he comes up against. The LSU one-two punch of EAH and Huff has been tough for any team to figure out, and with that much star power in the Tiger's backfield they look poised to be a team that can make a lot of noise down the stretch. Fred Biletnikoff Award SEC Contenders: WR Jarvis Ward, Texas A&M - 68 receptions for 982 yards (14.44 ypr) , 12 TD, 0 DRP At this point it has to be a one horse race for the best receiver in college football. Jarvis Ward has been the one constant for the Aggies in 2020, destroying the elite cornerbacks of the SEC with ease. Throwing at Ward's direction is nearly a guaranteed first down for A&M everytime they do it, and they do it very often. We don't have the full seasonal numbers, but at this point I can't see anyone surpassing Ward. If he wins this, he'll be the third Aggie to do so, following Riddick Smith and Adrian Jankowski. John Mackey Award SEC Contenders: TE Hunter King, Ole Miss - 50 receptions for 749 yards (14.98 ypr), 7 TD, 0 DRP King has been the offensive spark that Ole Miss has needed for so long. The senior tight end is having one of the great receiving seasons, and could see himself in the early part of the draft as Tight Ends seem to have been a big revelation in the pros. His 6-6 frame allows him to be one of the top red zone targets, and he's showcased his ability there with 7 receiving touchdowns. Chuck Bednarik Award Dick Butkus Award SEC Contenders: ILB Tyrese Thompson - 53 Tackles, 2.0 Sacks, 2 INT The second of the two great inside linebackers from the 2017 recruiting class, Tyrese looks set to follow his peer Akeel Morris to winning the Dick Butkus Award. The Tiger's main defender and captain has been a huge reason to why Auburn has been able to stay undefeated. The cerebral MIKE linebacker makes all the audibles on the field for Auburn, and its his knowledge and playmaking ability that has allowed the defense to pick up whatever the offense can't do. OLB Damian Dailey - 48 Tackles, 4.0 Sacks, 1 INT Vanderbilt's outside linebacker Damian Dailey lit up the conference and national headlines early on in the season, but while the media has quieted down around him, his performances have not. Dailey's uncanny ability to get into the backfield as a linebacker is his trademark, but he's equally good at stopping the run and making plays in coverage. ILB Alex Felder, Georgia - 64 Tackles, 1 Sack Georgia's linebacker Alex Felder has been omnipresent for this defense. Seriously, he's the only defensive player in the SEC to have made all 9 statsheets this season. Felder is not flashy, but he is a reliable, hardhitting MIKE linebacker that stuffs the run with a passion, leading the conference with 9 more tackles than the next guy. ILB Markus Golden, Ole Miss - 55 Tackles, 1.5 Sacks, 1 INT Mr. Do-It-All does it again as Markus Golden has been one of the best defenders not just for Ole Miss, but the conference as a whole. He grades extremely well as a run defender, and has shown his versitility with his sacks and interceptions. With 3 more games left in the season, look for Markus to put up a good show for award voters. Rotary Lombardy Award SEC Contenders: DE Sebastian Smallwood, Alabama - 35 Tackles, 11.5 Sacks Sebastian Smallwood has made a fool out of any left tackle that dares opposes him. A ferocious blitzer, Smallwood's 11.5 sacks lead the SEC and has to be one of the top numbers nation wide. The junior is flat out elite, and his ability to bring the heat in Alabama's base 4-3 set allows Cade to do odd things on defense that just keeps all opponents on their toes. DE Timothy Key, Florida - 39 Tackles, 11.0 Sacks Equally as dangerous as Smallwood has been the performances of Timothy Key. The SEC East's leader in sacks is a big reason why the Gators are having such a successful bounce back season. He sets the tone for everything up front, and that keeps opposing offensive coordinators honest, and opposing quarterbacks shaking in their boots. Jim Thorpe Award SEC Contenders: CB DavidTriplett , Missouri - 27 Tackles, 6 INT This true freshman came to play. Triplett leads the SEC in interceptions, and his side of the field is a no-go zone for any quarterback to throw at. He locks up the opposition's best receiver, tracking them around the field even as offensive coordinators scheme up ideas to get their weapons free. With his inexperience, it's been incredible seeing him dominate much more polished receivers than he should. Triplett looks like he will be a force for Missouri in the foreseeable future. Ray Guy Award SEC Contenders: P Benjamin Biggs, Georgia - 44.42 yards per punt Biggs looks like the best punter in college football for 2020. The Georgia senior has been one of the major weapon's for this team, consistently pinning teams inside their 10 with his booming leg. He leads the conference in yards per punt, average hang time, and punts dropped inside the 20. Hard to see him not be able to win this award at the end of the season.
