The Mackey Award, given annually to college football's top tight end, has released its watch list, and here are the Big 12 players who made it.
Tim Biere, Kansas
Michael Egnew, Missouri
Egnew was a finalist last year, and Biere has the pieces to be a playmaker for the Jayhawks, but I smell a big snub.
Where's Oklahoma's James Hanna? You probably last saw him sprinting down the left sideline at Boone Pickens Stadium for an 82-yard touchdown that put the Big 12 South on ice for the Sooners, but he finished the year with 18 catches for 292 yards and seven touchdowns.
Biere, meanwhile, had 19 catches for 228 yards and four scores.
Hanna's seven touchdowns were tied for third-most among tight ends nationally and were two more than even Egnew,
