Couple of days old, but the Biletnikoff finalists were named recently. They are:

Calvin Johnson, Georgia Tech - 57 receptions, 886 yards, 13 TD's

Jarrett Dillard, Rice - 76 receptions, 1031 yards, 17 TD's

Jeff Samardzija, Notre Dame - 64 receptions, 879 yards, 10 TD's

the rice guy's numbers are great, but i don't see how this isn't Johnson. Samardzija would have a great argument if his quarterback wasn't one of the 3 or 4 best in college football.

I thought there were several better candidates than Samardzija.

I haven't either, but you'd have to believe that the TD numbers caught alot of people's attention. He's #1 in the nation in receiving TD's to go along with fantastic reception and yardage numbers. Rice is only 6-5 this year. Dillard is a small guy, 5'11, 160 lbs and has caught at least 1 TD in every game.

Not to be too much of a homer, but I thought Robert Meachem should've got some love. 61 receptions, 1149 yards and 10 TD's. Oh well.

I've never even heard of Dillard. It's kind of hard to front on those stats though. It should be CJ given the double teams and poor QB, but It's kinda hard no to give it to Dillard.

Hell, you're not being a homer at all. Meachem should be on there before Dillard and Samardzija. He has been very productive and consistant and raised his game to a new level.

CJ unless Dillard commands half the attenion CJ gets every game.

Even though Dillard has the best stats he dosent face quite the competition johnson and samardzija faces. And samardzija is good dont get me wrong but he has the top qb in the nation throwing to him. Johnson deserves it the most

11-21-2006, 06:08 PM
I don't think anyone could make an arguement for Samardzija. He has the worst stats despite having the best QB of the three.

They still have another game left, what are you talking about? He could easily get acouple TD's in one game and make his case?

That being said, I dont think he should or will win.

Calvin Johnson has two games left (Georgia, ACC championship) and Dillard can make a statement with a big game against Boise State.

So its fair to say noone is out of it yet....

I don't think Samardijiza has much of a chance, but yeah.

I'm sorry I just don't see him getting 7 TD's against USC but hey it's entirely possible. :roll:

Well its pretty easy to see Calvin Johnson winning, but according to your recent TD theory, Johnson prolly wont even win because he is 4 behind the leader :(

Did you even read my post before? For Samardzija to even have a chance he would need better stats, which he does not have. CJ is in a completely different situation than Shark is.

not according to your post? TD's are what matter, lol dont post what you dont mean!

Keep argueing and name calling, if it makes you feel better.

I'll take that as admission of your illiteracy and incorrectness.

Were talking football my lad, not grammar, spelling, punctuation or whatever you need to use in order to get 1 up in an arguement!

and yet you consistently fail to argue anything. you've added absolutely nothing to any discussion you've been a part of. please think before just randomly hitting submit. i'm also curious where, in this thread, anyone called you a name?

Against his 3 best opponents (Texas, Florida St, UCLA), Dillard combined for a total of 23 rec, 306 yds, and 3 TD, with at least 7 rec, 90 yds, and 1 TD in each game. Thats pretty good right there, but again I don't know how much attention he was getting on him since I have never seen him play

that is impressive for a team that i can't imagine really has any talent anywhere.

All while being 160 lbs too, lol. I'd have thought someone like Michael Griffin would have broken him in half by now. Even I have 30 lbs on him.

When I saw his 17 TD's, I was thinking that he surely had to be a 6'4-6'6 redzone freak, so I looked up his measureables. 5'11 160...yikes.

I love Dillard, he's always in the sports section in Houston. Too bad he's the only player on Rice most know. But it should be Calvin, no doubt.

He'll certainly have a good chance, but with Mario Manningham and Desean Jackson it'll be one hell of a competition. Not to mention guys like Malcolm Kelly, Limas Sweed, Marcus Monk, Sidney Rice, Mario Urrutia, Patrick Turner, Todd Blythe, Dorien Bryant and James Hardy who may all be in the mix. (and that's assuming that CJ, Meachem, Ginn and Jarrett all leave early).

Give it to CJ. Everyone knows he is by far and away the best WR in the country. He doesn't have the stats because Reggie Ball is wildly inaccurate and an overall terrible QB, but does anyone honestly think if he was on ND he wouldn't blow Samardizja's stats out of the water? I know this is a college award, not pro potential, but it would be a travesty if the clearly best WR didn't get his due because he had the misfortune of being on a team that couldn't fully utilize his talents.

I believe CJ will win and deserves to win, but some are trying to make the argument that Samardizja has a better QB so he doesnt deserve it...

yes his numbers arent as good, and he wont win it, but since when is someone deprived of something because he has a great QB throwing to him?

and by the way...he's ridiculously clutch and has made some great plays

all in all...CJ will win it
