Bosa  2nd team what the hell. Good job AP you just keep on showing why you are incompetent and irrelevant.

Was thinking the same thing. Nonetheless congrats to all of them. Go Bucks!

Do I have to put something down here?

"THIS IS A JOKE. I can't believe _____ has been so disrespected. That's why this award is so irrelevant."

Thought I'd save some of our fans the trouble and just let them copy/paste the above for whatever the outrage of the day is.

Bosa just didn't have enough sacks, I guess. I'd take him over any other defensive player in the nation.

Also questioning how McMillan did not get any All American honors considering he was a finalist for the Butkus award...

I think Bosa grades 55+ points higher than Shaq Lawson by PFF. What a joke

I think they has Bosa and Buckner as the two best defensive players in the country based on film. Both were second team, but will get drafted in the top half of the first round.

Joey Bosa 2nd team?  Does the AP smoke crack?

But, but, but Peppers!?!?!!

Imagine if we would've had both Cash and Bell in the same secondary...wow.

AP must be spending to much time looking a stat sheets instead of watching many games.....

Seems to be exactly that.

There's an old saying - "Statistics are for losers" ..... This is the perfect example.  I can promise you that regardless of which two players were selected for the DE positions by the AP, Bosa will be drafted higher than both.  Fortunately, NFL GM's don't draft on the basis of AP results, as they prefer ability and potential to play successfully at the next level ..... 2nd team, my ass !!!!

Congrats to the honorees.

Wondering what the hell the AP is thinking putting Bosa on the 2nd team is overreaction to you? Or am I not understanding your post?

I think that Bosa was the best.   But I guarantee you the kid is not losing any sleep over it.   And every time a great Buckeye player doesn't finish first for some award, it gets a little silly around these parts.

Many people don't go overboard with that reaction… Many people do.   It's a beauty pageant; The other girls are pretty too.

Seriously...Bosa on 2nd team? Obviously the AP voters look only at the stat sheets because if they saw any of the games they would have seen how much of an impact that Joey had on the opposing offense. Oh well, You are still 1st team in my book!

Congrats to all the Bucks with their selections! I hope the coaches can persuade a few to comeback.

HS

I think the coaches responsibility is to help the Buckeyes do what is the best for their future. They should be persuading most to take the money and don't look back.

Thank you. You get it. Taking over the first couple rounds of draft would do so much for our football program.

HS

I think Meyer has said in the past that if a guy is projected as a first rounder he'll help pack his bags. 

HS

Any All-American List that doesn't have Bosa 1st Team is a sham!!!

HS

Maybe this first team snub is what it takes to convince Bosa to come back next year?

I'm sure he will be just inconsolable while sleeping on his massive piles of money. Somehow I'm sure he'll get over it though.

I'm glad you didn't.  For just a frac of a sec, I was able to suspend my disbelief and had this 'yeah!' feeling in my brain.  After last season it almost feels like our guys are getting punished for this season by the media.  I just don't get it.  These guys are great players and very decent human beings--especially in comparison to the garbage behavior that's gone on down south over recent years but has been rewarded nevertheless.

Congrats men. I'm a little shocked at Bosa's 2nd team selection. He's the best defensive player in the country. 

HS

Bosa second team! Best defensive player in the country! Name one player Double or Triple teamed every play? Bad snub!

These "All-American" teams are really spelling doom for ND...  Bucks are going to go out proving something to a lot of folks.

as much as I would like to jump on the AP for their putting Bosa 2nd team ; the stats for Nassib speak volumes. He had more TFL's(18-14)  and led in sacks 15-4 .  What was the AP to do?

HS

Cash really must not have liked Meyer. From what I read it seems he was pissed at OSU for burning his redshirt, but that was done in 2011 when Fickell was in charge. Shame he didn't stick around; him and Bell in the secondary would have been amazing.

Cash brought Shazier, he did a great service to Buckeye Nation.

Bosa second team??? That is THE most ridiculous 2nd team All-American selection that I can remember. If ANYONE is a first team All-American it's Bosa. These sports writers kill me... but then I remember that this is the group keeping Pete Rose out of the baseball HOF and file it under "consider the source".

Pete Rose signed a document that keeps him out of the baseball HOF. http://www.baseball-almanac.com/players/p_rosea.shtml

After all that's transpired over the last quarter century, if you think THAT is what's keeping Pete Rose out of the HOF I would say that you're being naive. He's being kept out for spite. Period. So, I do hope that all of the pitiless scribes and social media judges who refuse Rose their compassion never in their lives have to ask forgiveness and depend on the grace of others for absolution. He's an old man who has paid his penance and then some. Let it go...

Sport writers are keeping an individual who isn't eligible out of the hof? Interesting take. Oh, that and spite. One person and one person alone has kept Pete Rose out of the hof and his name starts with Pete and ends with Rose.

Stingy AP. You just couldn't bring yourself to add a 3rd Buckeye First Team AA without seeming bias. So you bump Bosa and/or Elliott to 2nd team to cook your books. We see right through your charade, your gerrymandering, your dog and pony show.

It's kind of insane to think that Zeke won't have a tree in Buckeye Grove (but I guess Beanie missed out as well)

The AP has been a joke to me since they gave USC a 'championship' in 2003. Now they're just throwing gasoline on the dumpster fire that they are.

SEQUOIA473's picture

There's no love lost with the AP but 2003 USC national champs is due to an overrated and undeserving Oklahoma who got smoked by K state and not winning their conference playing a good but not great LSU team. 2003 USC would've smoked both of those teams.

Congratulations to Decker and Bell and of course Joey and forgive me for being a bit salty here but what the ____ are these idiot voters watching? That PSU player may have better stats but only because he didn't get double and triple teamed EVERY play. Nasib can't begin to compare. And for that matter Zeke is equally screwed. You can't argue with a Heisman winner but Fournette? Please give me a break.

HS
