Thorpe award
Baker is a phenomenal talent but I still think Greedy is a better DB. Anyone think Baker being a senior and not skipping the bowl helped him win?

re: Thorpe award
I think it did. Chris Fowler even mentioned when he presented Baker with the trophy. Not to say that Baker didn’t deserve it

FYI in his interview after on stage he was specifically asked why he WASNT skipping the bowl game.

ETA: not saying it factored in...but did think it was pretty coincidental

People will bash you for saying this but it’s true. Fowler made a point to mention it. Greedy didn’t even clap for him.

Thorpe is meaningless. It’s an exhibition reward.

No he’s a really good player and was on a better team. Those votes were in before greedy announced he was skipping the bowl game.

At least he showed up. He could have tripped walking up the aisle.

re: Thorpe award
I think Baker just had a better year. He was absolutely lock down. If Greedy makes the play to end the A&M game in regulation he probably wins it.

Delpit should’ve won it. Easily

It's a big talking point this time of year due to the recent trend. I agree with you that there's no way that it was a factor.

re: Thorpe award
I wanted Greedy to win until I heard Bakers explanation for playing in the bowl game. Kinda glad Greedy didn’t win now.

re: Thorpe award
All three of the finalists are quality DB's. They will all make big jack come draft day. The trophy won't make much, if any difference.

Apparently baker hasn’t given up a TD in two years... that being said Delpit is far more deserving

re: Thorpe award
I hate when our fans get offended when a player nominated for an award doesn't win it or a player isn't an all-american as if other teams don't have great players too. Baker was likely the favorite for this award if anyone paid any attention. No one got "robbed"
