Regardless of whether you're a Badger fan or not, I believe most people in the know, i.e. media, fans, etc, would agree that Badger LB Chris Borland is one of the top-5 linebackers in college football .......

Apparently the Butkus Award committee didn't think so as they announced their 5 award finalists today and conspicuous by his absence on the list was Chris Borland.

One has to wonder if he's paying a price for missing 2 games due to injury. Either way, the Borland snub is complete bulls_hit! A huge thumbs down to the Butkus Award people! [:'(]

I'm not necessarily implying Borland should win the award, but he sure as hell deserves to be one of the 5 finalists. If Ohio St's Ryan Shazier is on the finalsits list, Borland certainly should be.

Meanwhile, Borland has been named a finalist for the Ronnie Lott Impact Award:

The national Butkus Award Committee be damned, .... because Tuesday, Badger LB Chris Borland was named 2013 Big 10 Defensive Player of the Year. That includes beating out Ohio St LB Ryan Shazier, who is a Butkus Award finalist. [headbang]
