Monday, December 19, 2011 All-Bilo FBS QB of the Year 2011

Welcome back to our Awards Season, as we begin the process of naming our All-Bilo FBS individual players of the year for 2011. We begin the FBS process with our All-Bilo QB of the Year award. There is no doubt that 2011 saw amazing QB performances across the landscape, but we also saw many performances either go unnoticed or underappreciated. This award takes all QBs from all leagues into account, as we average off a score based on 8 different passing categories. There are no votes, and conference affiliation has no bearing. Based on the information just given, here is a list of our 2011 finalists for the All-Bilo QB of the Year Award for 2011. There were 19 semi-finalist, and the list was scaled down to the following finalists:
Seth Doege, Texas Tech
Brandon Weeden, Oklahoma State
Landry Jones, Oklahoma
Robert Griffin, Baylor
Case Keenum, Houston
Geno Smith, West Virginia
Kellen Moore, Boise State
Matt Barkley, USC

In order to qulaify for being a finalist, the QB named to the list had to score at least 6500 points amongst the 8 categories mentioned once scores were averaged out. If you were wondering, as he was evidently left off of the list, Andrew Luck, a Heisman finalist, scored 6018.38 points.

At this time, we are proud to announce the winner of the All-Bilo QB of the Year Award winner for 2011! And the winner is...

Case Keenum, Houston
The Heisman voters chose to largely ignore the feats of Keenum all season long, but at the end of the day, nobody coud argue the accomplishments that he had on the field. Keenum missed all of 2010 after having major knee surgery, and came back with a vengeance in 2011 by passing for 5099 yards, 45 TDs to just 5 picks, and completed 71.72% of his passes on the season. With an average score of 8903 points, nobody came within 1200 points of Keenum amongst the 19 semifinalists on our list.
Keenum completed 29.46 passes per game on the season, and had a total of 383 pass completions in 13 games during the regular season, as the Cougars narrowly missed a BCS birth by falling to Southern Mississippi in the CUSA title game. Both Southern Miss and Houston are in our PRS FBS top ten heading into bowl games.
Congratulations to Case Keenum, and to the Houston Cougars program!
