College Football: Our All-Sun Belt ballot

On Monday, the Sun Belt Conference holds its annual Football Media Day in New Orleans.

Texas State will send its contingent to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, which includes head coach Dennis Franchione and senior wide receiver Isaiah Battle. This will be the Bobcats’ first year in the Sun Belt after spending one year in the Western Athletic Conference.

Judging by other preseason awards, Texas State should be well-represented on the 2013 Preseason All-Sun Belt Team, which was voted on by Sports Information Directors and members of the media.

Here is how one media member (Tyler Mayforth) organized his ballot.

Voters had been given multiple options for running back, wide receivers, offensive linemen, defensive linemen, linebacker and defensive back. Players listed first were of first priority, down to the last.

    For some reason I can’t get the rest of your thoughts beyond what’s below. Would you mind sending them to me in the body of the e mail?

    Thanks.

    Wayne Mayo It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. –Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States
