I don't have more than a few links this morning (because of time), but I'll update as the day goes on.
- StiffArmTrophy.com has its latest update published this morning with 189 ballots counted (last year's last update had just over 200). The guy running the site says he's not comfortable calling the race until after he gets about 200, which would be between 20-25% of the outstanding ballots. This update still has Robert Griffin III in the lead, but the lead is shrinking somewhat. RGIII still has 3x as many first-place votes as Luck and still has a very healthy lead. It's just getting closer than it was, which gives credence to my fear that RGIII supporters were simply more vocal early on in the process.
- RGIII is the AP's Big XII Offensive Player of the Year after his incredible season. He received 14.5 of 17 first-place votes for the award.
- RGIII is also the Big XII's Offensive Player of the year in league voting announced just a few minutes ago. The All-Big XII first and second teams will be announced in minutes. If they are before I post this, I'll put them up here. Otherwise, I'll put them in the comments.
- They were posted, and Baylor placed 4 players on the First Team Offense (Robert Griffin III, Terrance Ganaway, Kendall Wright, and Phillip Blake), 1 on the Second Team Offense (Robert T. Griffin), and 1 on the Second Team Defense (Nicholas Jean-Baptiste). Bill Snyder was Big XII Coach of the Year and pushed Art Briles to second, it seems.
- David Ubben of ESPN.com's Big XII blog posted his Season Review for Baylor, and it is worth a quick look. He has RGIII and Elliot Coffey as the team leaders on offense and defense. Probably could have predicted that going into the season.
- ESPN.com has a number of things posted today about RGIII today, actually. They have an entire page dedicated to the "Rise of RGIII" with polls and videos and such.
- It is worth noting that the Big XII has altered its stance after what happened this year to support a move to a Plus-1 playoff model. This is the single change that makes the most sense to me of anything, so I hope it happens.
- Because it is Pearl Harbor Day, I thought I'd post a link or two about that for people to read if they have time. First is CBSNews, which has pictures and articles up on their site. Next is CNN.com, which has a touching video with interviews from survivors, who are predictably dwindling in number as the years go on.
