Football Midseason Honors
Who's been the Big 12’s off/def MVP so far? Its biggest surprise/disappointment? Our Big 12 midseason review: http://t.co/5HJeFh4gzw— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) October 14, 2014

Figured going in DE would be the Big 12’s deepest defensive position. Turned out, it’s LB. Tough competition there for the All-Big 12 spots— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) October 14, 2014
The list is light on Baylor, which is perfectly understandable since half of Baylor's stars have barely played this season. Trotter's list indicates just how talented the conference is at this point - and I expect Baylor players like Bryce Petty, Antwan Goodley, Andrew Billings, and Xavien Howard to claim places by the end of the year.
4 Bears named midseason All-Americans by @SportsonEarth - S.Drango, B.Petty, K.Cannon, S.Oakman: http://t.co/cHGRTqt74m #sicem— Baylor Football (@BUFootball) October 14, 2014
We assumed going into the season that KD Cannon was a dark horse candidate for Big 12 Freshman of the Year. We had no idea that he'd be in the running for a place on an All-American team.

Petty won the Earl Campbell Award last year, given to the most outstanding college football player native to the state of Texas.
Clawing Back: @BaylorAthletics's Petty (@b_petty14) named QB of the Week for leading stirring comeback vs. TCU https://t.co/4CODIT4JZL— Davey O'Brien (@daveyobrien) October 14, 2014
Petty's huge day and ability to bounce back from a devastating turnover earned him this week's Davey O'Brien honors. Petty is a short list candidate for the annual quarterbacking award.

Do I miss the highlighters? Yes. Do I love the new Nike designs and think they'll be better for the program in the long run? Definitely. If Baylor can keep up their recent success, they should eventually earn more attention from the uniform giant.
What are your thoughts?
