Dennis Pitta Screwed!

Hard to say there was a better tight end in the country this year than Dennis Pitta, but the voters of the Mackey Award sure think there was. Pitta led the nation's tight ends in reception yards (789), yards per game (65) and yards per catch (13.8), and was second in touchdowns (7) and receptions (57 - two behind the award winner) yet came up short against Florida's Aaron Hernandez. Ridiculous. But, Pitta was named to the 2009 Walter Camp All-America team.

Also, Coach Edwards received the "Contributions to College Football Award." Edwards was honored during the ESPNU College Football Awards tonight on ESPN.
