- On Thursday night, Dalvin Cook lost out on yet another distinction as Texas’ D’Onta Foreman won the Doak Walker Award. The award is given annually to the nation’s top running back. In 2016, Cook had 1,620 rushing yards with a six-yard per carry average to go along with 426 receiving yards and 19 total touchdowns. Foreman ran for 2,028 yards with a 6.3 yard average and 15 total touchdowns. Cook also played against seven defenses in the top-50 compared to Foreman’s one. Should Cook have won the award, or did the voters get it right?
- Earlier this week, Cook was also not named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, another questionable decision.
- USA Today released its 2016 All-America teams with RB Dalvin Cook, DE DeMarcus Walker and OL Rod Johnson all making the first-team. Were any ‘Noles left out?
