CougarStats 2000s all-decade team: Special Teams


Last week’s voting for all-decade linebackers was a clear-cut choice for Aaron Francisco, Andrew Rich, Brian Logan and Jernaro Gilford. All of the other candidates only had single-digit vote counts.

This week, the final week of the survey, we have three polls, please vote in all of them. Kickers, punters and return specialists. Vote for whomever you like, but keep a few things in mind.

Kickers – Owen Pochman’s 2000 season should be the only one considered. 97-99 were in the previous decade.

Punters – Riley Stephenson’s 2009 season should be the only one considered for the same reason.

Return Specialists – Only vote based on Austin Collie’s kickoff and punt return abilities. Not his overall pass catching awesomeness.

The nominees are for 2000s all-decade team return specialists are O’Neil ChambersAustin CollieBryce Mahuika and Nathan Meikle.

So, the nominees are for 2000s all-decade team kickers are Jared McLaughlin, Matt Payne, Mitch Payne and Owen Pochman.

The nominees are for 2000s all-decade team punters are Aaron Edmonds, Derek McLaughlin, Matt Payne, CJ Santiago and Riley Stephenson.

CougarStats 2000s all-decade team: Offensive Line


The voting for Wide Receivers last week wasn’t very close. Austin Collie ran away with it receiving 145 votes. Reno Mahe also made the team with 65 votes. Todd Watkins was the only other WR in the running with 47.

This week is different. We’re voting for the whole offensive line.  We have 13 nominees — three with the same last name. If you want to consider positions, great. Or, just vote for the best 5 and if we end up with five centers, we’ll let them take turns snapping the ball.

Your nominees are:  Ben Archibald Sete Aulai Travis Bright Ray Feinga Scott Jackson Jake Kuresa Dallas Reynolds Lance Reynolds Matt Reynolds Dustin Rykert Brian Sanders Jason Scukanec and Scott Young.

Remember, VOTE FOR FIVE LINEMEN.

CougarStats 2000s all-decade team: Wide Receivers


Last week’s Tight Ends poll was much less dramatic than the previous week’s QB voting. Dennis Pitta ran away with it while Jonny Harline was a distant second.

This week we move on to wide receivers. If we were only allowed one vote, we might have a similar result. But we’re choosing two: Matt Allen,  Toby Christensen, Austin Collie, Reno Mahe, Michael Reed, and Todd Watkins are the nominees.
