It is official, Nick Temple is the Rodney Dangerfield of AAC linebackers. He has been the Bearcats first choice at the SAM linebacker for the last 35 games or so. He started every game for the Bearcats a year ago, led all linebackers in the AAC in tackles for loss and was second among linebackers in sacks and he can't even get a preseason first team nod? Is anyone else watching what I am watching? There is not one linebacker who is better or more versatile than Nick Temple in this conference. Unbelievable.

In other slight's the receivers got screwed. One of the 10 best receiving corps in the entire country and only three of them make the preseason all conference list? None of them before the third team. OK. I don't even know where to begin with this, so I won't.
