PAC-12 Awards

COY - Whittingham
DPOY - Devin Lloyd Lloyd
FDOPY - Junior Tafuna
OPOY - Drake London
FOPOY - Jayden de Laura

What are the bonuses Whittingham gets for making it to the NY6, winning the PAC-12, and being the coach of the year? If I remember correctly they are pretty significant.


It’s funny to go back and look at some of the pre-season all-conference predictions, compared to how it actually ended up.


Would love to see Kyle donate any bonuses to the TJ/AL scholarship funds

:grimacing: Redding First Team Pac-12 kicker…


The all-conference teams are out as well:
Utes on 1st team:
O: Rising, Thomas, Ford
D: Tafua, Lloyd
ST: Covey

2nd Team:
O: Kuithe, Daniels, Bam
D: CP3

Honorable Mention:
S Cole Bishop, Fr.; DB Vonte Davis, Sr.; TE Dalton Kincaid, Sr.; OL Sataoa Laumea, R-Fr.; LB Nephi Sewell, Jr.


I hope Kincaid comes back next year - he could do something special and make a lotta money in the NFL as a result. Kuithe was amazing but I think that Kincaid can match him.


All very well deserved.

But let this particular one sink in: Cam Rising, 1st team All-PAC.

If that doesn’t represent our season, I don’t know what does.

I thought it was .5 mill for South title
A million or so for Pac-12 title
Significantly more for major bowls or CFP. But that’s off memory

Are the videos for each award not working for anyone else? It plays about 10 seconds then jumps back to the start for me.

Looks like he’ll get $400k (NY6) + $100k (PAC12 South Champs) + $100k (final Top 25) + $55k (PAC12 COY) + maybe some for APR & GSR? + can get another $100k with a NY6 win. So last weekend basically gave him an extra $655k. Good weekend in Vegas! :slight_smile:

I think this is a good list and don’t really have too many complaints. I think credit was given. I actually am surprised to see so few Oregon on 1st and 2nd team offense (Brown, Dye) but also don’t see who they would bump down.

3 All-Conference OL (+1 honorable mention)?! They’ve come a long way since early season. Award goes to Harding. And why Tavion is 1st team. A little surprised Pledger didn’t get honorable mention.


Thibodeaux loses to Lloyd for the third time this season.


Well, my predictions weren’t very good:

4th if you include PAC12 CCG MVP (Kayvon won it last year against USC when Oregon, the #2 North team subbed for U-dub and beat the 5-0 toejams).
