And kudos to the season Brett Gabbert had that he still was made 3rd Team All MAC despite missing the last several games. Personally I think he deserved 2nd Team All MAC but still quite a testament to the outstanding season he was having.
Gage snub is perplexing. I guess the argument is he only played in four MAC games, but he was still second in the league in receiving yards and led the league in yards per game. Not to mention it’s four receivers per team. Is he really not one of the twelve best receivers in the MAC?
Strader is the only other one I’d categorize as a snub. Second in the league in pass breakups. Freshmen though.
Ertl doesn’t have the stats but man he’s important to this team.
I think the actual truth is that Gage got injured against our FCS opponent and never returned full speed. He went from the fastest guy in the MAC to just a fast guy, and then he only got to play half the MAC games. His accomplishments in MAC games only was not all league caliber. Gabbert benefits from the UC win and his long history. People know how good he can be.
