Got to love the Ozarks voting bloc that corrupts these awards.

Of the 14 All-Region spots, 6 went to Ozarks players (7 if you count Hardingてカnot technically an Ozark team). Is that too many? Maybe so.

Are the two LS players (Abe and Matt) somehow not deserving? No way.

I'm pretty sure Jacob wasn't trying to take anything away from Abe or Matt. I think he was just wanting to point out that the team that effortlessly won SC Regionals only has 1 all region player.

Which is a valid point. It's a shame that Mickle is the only one who gets any attention on such a good team.

It's justてカin the context of a thread meant to congratulate a couple of guys for receiving All-Region recognition, calling that recognition 'corrupt' does tend to take something away from them. Doesn't it?

I think the team captains should have won all the awards for getting the roster in on time.

The awards are being invalidated by voters conducting themselves as fans of people they know more than respect for skilled players. It reflects poorly on the selection process when there are two UA players, two UNT players, and an OU player without their teams being represented on Sunday at Regionals (in contention for a bid). Getting all-region because someone likes your smile seems hollow. Doesn't it?
