How could Kyle Christy not be on this when he will probably win the Ray Guy? Absurd

Mike Herman said...

UPDATE: after further review, Kyle Christy is indeed on the list. As a returning winner, his name was shown elsewhere on the source material, and we missed that when initially posting the list. Sorry about the mix-up.

Are these only for DI punters?

Mike Herman said...

Yes, this is just the FBS half of D1. They did a separate list for the FCS half. As far as I know, they didn't do a watch list for D2 or D3.

Thats not right..That's like saying all DI one school players are better than everyone else..Which is wrong.
