Leaving Donald Brown off the list of finalists shows how political the whole process is. These awards are a joke just like the Heisman selection.

It was good to hear Coach Edsall recognize the effort of Will Beatty. Beatty was a bright light in an otherwise dull UConn performance.

It's no surprise that Donald Brown was not a finalist. In the nationaly televised games that voters had a chance to see, UConn played poorly. Brown didn't let the team down, but the the team let Brown down.

Will Beatty made himself a lot of money Sunday night.

This is a surprise? He is a good runningback and thats it. Running against Hofstra, Syracuse and Baylor isn't that hard!

Not surprising that a UCONN "Hater" would try to tear down something positive like Donald Brown's outstanding efforts in EVERY game this season. Two things are consistent in your posts:
Lack of facts to support your spout offs and underlying hatred of the UCONN football program.
No one is impressed with your nonsense!
Think about this one genius--what would Donald Brown do if he was supported by the Offenses of the finalists for this award? If he were not the total focus of the opponent's defense every week what would his stats be?
Didn't think about that, did you?
I know, I know...it is easier for you not to think too much.

you cannt play the lowly teams in the ncaa - get inflated numbers and then expect to get awards for it?
thats almost as bad as this newspaper
saying browns in the running for the heisman?
well things could change...
bring back the army-duke and hartford public games and go 13-0 should put him over the top.....

So, since you are a professional sports expert, please enlighten us in what GOOD teams did Brown light up this year?

Donald Brown has gained 1633 yds in 11 games so far this season. He is an outstanding RB who will continue to excell at UCONN and then in the NFL. Your premise that he has not performed against "good" teams is, as usual from you, full of holes. If it is so easy to achieve success against teams you don't consider "good" why are there not 50 other RB's in the country with better stats? Or 25? Or 12? Or 5? Not every team plays against top 25 opponents each season.
Lots of RB's competing against opponents that are weaker than UCONN's every week with no where near the yards Brown has.
Check the stats of the other Doak Walker finalists and see where they accumulated their yardage (in most cases less yards than Brown).
Your arguement doesn't work---again!

When Uconn starts playing powerhouse teams consistently, and winning, only then will individual standouts be recognized. Their out of conference schedule is easier than Appalachian State's, and they're div. 2. Plus, the big east is a weak conference. Great Job this year so far, especially for Brown. But Uconn is going to have to play big names'Florida, LSU, USC, Ohio State, teams of that caliber, and win, before there are any national awards given to individual standouts.

Remind me; what school did Walter Payton go to? What power house schools did Payton face while in college? How did he make out in the NFL? Yes, I agree that UCONN is not a powerhouse playing in the SEC or the Big 12 but that in no way should diminish what D. Brown has accomplished this year. Especially when every opponent focuses 99% of the Defensive game plan on stopping him.
