2013 FWAA All American Team: How I voted on offense

Derek+Carr+New+Mexico+v+Fresno+State+Bs_KItEkouilAs a member of the Football Writer’s Association of America, I get to cast a ballot for the FWAA All-American team. This year I wanted to be sure that my ballot was made public for anyone to see how I voted if they were interested. The ballots for offense were due Sunday, so I am aware that there are still games to be played. However, I feel comfortable my selections here would hold up after the completion of the regular season and various conference championship games where needed.

Today I’m revealing my All-American offense and explaining some of my picks. Next week I will do the same with my ballot for defense.


Quarterback:, Fresno State

Andre+Williams+Northwestern+v+Boston+College+3A9qY5LULi8lI have been vocal recently about how I believe Northern Illinois quarterback should be considered for the Heisman Trophy before Alabama’s AJ McCarron, so it may surprise you that I placed another option on the top of my quarterback depth chart on my All-American team. While I suspect Florida State’s will be the likely First Team All-American, I cast my vote for Fresno State’s Derek Carr and I will tell you why.

Getting carried away with big passing numbers is very easy to do. Often times a quarterback with the kind of numbers Carr has is a product of the pass-happy system he is in, and for Carr that is true to an extent. Sometimes a system builds around the talents they have to work with, and Carr is a gifted individual that Fresno State has been wise to work around. Look at Fresno State’s passing trends as an example. In 2009 Fresno State ranked 79th in passing offense. Carr was a back-up freshman that year. Since then Fresno State’s passing game has improved each season and it is not a coincidence that Carr has been improving along the way. As the ballots for offense were due, Carr led the nation in touchdowns with 39 to just four interceptions and he was fourth in the nation in pass completion percentage (69.7) on 502 attempts.

I like pro better but Football is Best by far

by pigskin

Football is, in my humble opinion, the greatest of american sports. It's big, it's loud, it's strategy and preparation, and good gawd how about all the pretty ladies?
College football is a great game. I love the rivalries, enthusiasm, and especially the contrasting playing styles. (like a Florida State v. Nebraska matchup) However I think the level of play at the pro level is far superior and I like following the various players throughout their careers. While some people hate the way money has tainted the sport I like thinking that any team can be an impact free agent or 2 away from the super bowl.

    I'm considering going to american military university apart of the american public university system but I'm worried about courses transferring to a regular university my alternative is regis university or regent university online
    i need more answers please!

    • AMU is a regionally accredited university.
      Any university/college that does not accept credit transfer from AMU does not understand the meaning of regional accreditation.

      Contact both Regis and Regents and ask them about transferring credit from AMU. You should expect no problems at all.

      If an AMU degree is good enough for the American military, it should be good enough for any other accredited university.
