KU’s Briscoe, Stuckey named to media’s preseason all-Big 12 team

Two members of the KU football team received Big XII preseason honors. The media selected the players as part of the 22 best players in the conference.


Kansas wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe and safety Darrell Stuckey were both named to the media's preseason All-Big 12 team Friday.

Briscoe had 92 catches for 1,407 yards and 15 touchdowns as a sophomore last season. Stuckey, meanwhile, led the Jayhawks last year with five interceptions and was second on the team with 98 tackles.

Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford was named the preseason offensive player of the year, while Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was selected as the preseason defensive player of the year.

Baylor defensive tackle Phil Taylor was picked as the preseason newcomer of the year.

KU and NU led the Big 12 North schools with two selections each on the preseason All-Big 12 team. Missouri linebacker Sean Witherspoon was the only other Big 12 North player to be selected on the 26-person All-Big 12 roster.

The full preseason All-Big 12 team is below.

Why does everyone underrate our QB??????

Once again, the Big 12 is the "QB conference".

jayhawkinATL 11 years, 4 months ago

...Bradford, McCoy, Reesing, Robinson, whoever at TTU...

The Big 12 may be the QB conference, but Tebow is the NCAA's Zeus.

Seriously, did anyone catch how big of an issue they've been making of the SEC preseason vote? One coach doesn't vote for Tim and everyone's up in arms about what a travesty it is he didn't get unanimous selection.

I'm rooting for two teams this year...KU and whoever lines up against Florida.

Whitechocolate you are SPOT on. The media has made me despise Tebow. I have nothing against him personally, but they are shoving him down our throats!!

Despise the media, not Tebow. It is encouraging to see athletes with character instead criminals. It is also part of the reason I am proud of the 'Hawks.

Tim Tebow claims to be a virgin. Any guesses what the over and under is for Div. One football virgins?

Wasn't Mangino going on a diet to lose fifty pounds last year? it looks like he found them!!

Season record estimates:

14-0 Only with Divine Intervention 13-1 Ditto 12-2 Gotta win in the State of Texas....tough, tough, tough 11-3 Getting warmer {If we win the North} 10-3 If we don't win the North 9-4 We lost a "trap" game or blew a Bowl 8-5 A disappointment 7-6 A REALLY big disappointment Anything below that...we won't even acknowledge!!

Should win - N.CO,/ T-EP./ Duke/S.Miss./ISU/ COL/KSU/MO/ Bowl Opponent Challenged to win - Tex.Tech/Neb Really Hard to Win - OK Really, really, really hard to win - Tex/ Big !2 Champ.

If you think Tebow is a virgin (which he claims to be), google "Tim Tebow girlfriend".

Tony Bandle 11 years, 4 months ago



Well, if they crash at sea, at least they can both use her as a floating device!!!

Maybe he is using the Bill Clinton definition of sexual intimacy?

buckleyhawk 11 years, 4 months ago just put a smile on my face.

KUFan90 11 years, 4 months ago

vmwsskywalk - wow. Ummm if Lucy Pinder is really his girlfriend and he really is a virgin...there simply is no justice in this universe.
