If anyone would've told me at the beginning of the season that Sander would win the Ray Guy Trophy, I'd be homeless right now, because I would've bet the house that he wouldn't.

I agree Mililani. Everyone was hoping he would just be consistant this year and he came out booming kick after kick plus a lot of punts inside the 20. He was such a big part of the team this year.... congrats to BJ!

If the "Most Valuable Player" of your team is the guy who played "his" position better than anyone else on the team played "theirs" than I give the 2003 Buckeye "MVP" to Sander, in a fairly close vote over Smith and Hawk.

I think we all knew he had a season like this inside him somewhere. Which is what made it so frustrating (for me anyway) during his BJ Shankers days. As huge as Andy Groom (where are you DMC? I said his name, I know you'll find this) was for us, I think maybe his greatest feat was resurrecting BJ.

But like Mili, I would have bet the farm that the Ray Guy was out of reach. Very happy to be wrong.

We've been spoiled a bit by phenominal kicking on the part of Nugent, Groom and Sanders. I can only hope we can keep that up in the years to come.
