The Experience Freshman of the Year The first FR I saw stand out to me after not finding anything in the Passing, Rushing or Receiving category (mainly due to Bailey being injured) was in the Blocking category with Illinois TE Tyler White. He has pancaked 3 people and has allowed zero sacks, not bad for a FR(RS) TE who is only 72 overall. The next two FR didn't really stand out until I hit KICKERS. There are actually two true FR kickers in the league that are impressing me. Michigan has a FR kicker who has hit one from 49 yards out and has made 6/6 on the season while Northwestern kicker Joe Bryant has hit one from 48 yards out and has made 9/9. Those are the only standout FR for now. EMVP Get your nominations in. Oopsman Cody Sokol is making another strong case with only 88 passing attempts on the season with 579 yards. He has 5 INT's and 4 TDs with a 51% completion rating. He has only fumbled once. Illinois WR Fritz Rock has only been thrown to 12 times this season but has dropped four more passes, that's a quarter throw his way. I get the feeling Coach jello1717 doesn't throw his way too often and for good reason(25.0 ypg). The entire Purdue O Line gave up huge amounts of sacks by this time last year and they are nowhere near close to that, nice job improving. On the other hand Illinois RT Scott McDowell has give up 6 sacks and has only managed one pancake. Northwestern RT Jack Knopka is breathing down his neck with 6 sacks allowed but has on more pancake.
