The Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award semifinalists were announced today. There are 16 semifinalists, and DRob is among them.
The Big Ten represents one-fourth of the list, and at least two more signal callers have legitimate gripes at being left off.
Here are the selections:
- Michigan State junior Kirk Cousins
- Ohio State junior Terrelle Pryor
- Michigan sophomore Denard Robinson
- Iowa senior Ricky Stanzi
All four players are deserving, and Stanzi is one of only four repeat semifinalists from 2009. The Big Ten and Big 12 lead all conferences with four candidates apiece.
Nice recognition for a first year starter like DRob.
