Josh Huff feels 'disrespected' by Pac-12 honorable mention selection

The Pac-12 conference released its first- and second-team all-conference selections on Monday — you can check them out here — and Oregon Ducks wide receiver Josh Huff isn’t pleased. The explosive wide receiver, who finished the year with 1,036 receiving yards an 11 touchdowns, was named as an honorable mention.

The first-team selections were Oregon State’s Brandin Cooks and Colorado’s Paul Richardson. The second-team selections were Stanford’s Ty Montgomery and Arizona State’s Jaelen Strong.

Huff vented his frustration on Twitter.

 

 

 

As you may recall, Huff has ruffled some feathers — Oregon pun not intended –  throughout the 2013 season. He blasted the NCAA earlier this year on Twitter after a party of he wanted to throw was shut down, and his comments regarding the Rose Bowl caused plenty of over-reaction from the Oregon fanbase. Huff clearly has no qualms about being outspoken, but the question remains: is he right to feel snubbed?

You can check out the stats for yourself here. It’s pretty clear that Cooks and Richardson are deserving of their first-team selections seeing as they were the only two receivers in the conference to average over 100 receiving yards per game. Strong, however, totaled only 31 more receiving yards than Huff, and Huff caught four more touchdown passes than the ASU sophomore. To top it off, Huff’s aforementioned receiving stats are superior to Montgomery’s (the Stanford junior had 868 receiving yards and nine touchdowns on the season).

It could be that Huff split some votes with Oregon teammate Bralon Addison. Or maybe the aspersions cast on Huff’s character throughout the year influenced the voting process. Either way, it seems obvious that Huff certainly has a logical reason to feel he was unfairly overlooked, even if you personally aren’t pleased with the fact he expressed such opinions.
