MWC Media Days

MWC media days are under way and the preseason conference poll and awards are out. We'll start with the one that didn't go to TCU, preseason offensive player of the year goes to BYU QB Max Hall. Big Suprise pre-season defensive player of the year is All-American DE Jerry Hughes, but the awards don't stop there. Preseaon special teamer of the year goes to Jeremy Kerley and preseason fresman of the year has been bestowed upon RB Ed Wesley. Oh, and lucky us the Frogs were picked by the media to win the conference. ESPN's Graham Watson will be following the events here. And videos from the event can be seen here.

TCU also placed 7 on the preseaon all-conference team:

Jerry Hughes - DE
Daryl Washington - LB
Nick Sanders - CB
Rafael Priest - CB

Marshall Newhouse - OL

Anson Kelton - P
Jeremy Kerely - R
