QB's Shut Out of AP Player of the Year
Maybe it is a sign of a weak 2009 QB class or a standout performances for other positions, but rarely does a season go without a quarterback in the top 3 of the AP Player of the Year Award.
Former Heisman winners Tim Tebow and Sam Bradford didn't have outstanding numbers (Bradford injured for most of season), but you would think that Colt McCoy would have done enough in completing over 70% of his passes while leading his Texas Longhorns to an undefeated season and a shot at the national title.
The AP gave the nation's best defensive player its award, naming Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh it winner, followed by Stanford RB Toby Gerhart and this year's Heisman winning running back Mark Ingram from Alabama came in third.
