Landry Jones Left Off All-Conference List - Five Other Sooners Make It

STILLWATER OK - NOVEMBER 27: Quarterback Landry Jones #12 of the Oklahoma Sooners looks for an open receiver against the Oklahoma State Cowboys at Boone Pickens Stadium on November 27 2010 in Stillwater Oklahoma. (Photo by Tom Pennington/Getty Images)

Your Big 12 first and second team quarterbacks are Brandon Weeden of Oklahoma State and Robert Griffin of Baylor. That means Landry Jones, who led the Big 12 in passing touchdowns (34) and was second to Weeden in passing yards (3,947), will be relegated to honorable mention. 

I really can't make an argument against Weeden even though he has only 90 more passing yards than Landry with fewer touchdowns and more interceptions. Oklahoma State was the surprise team of the year this year and Weeden was a huge part of that. 

I can however take exception to the second team pick of Robert Griffin. Yes, he's a phenomenal athlete and yes, he guided his team to a bowl birth for the first as a member of the Big 12 but come on, production is production. Griffin had 750 fewer passing yards and 13 fewer touchdowns than Landry. I know, I know, everyone is going to talk about Griffin's ability to run but when you include his 591 net rushing yards and his 8 rushing touchdowns he still doesn't equal the production of Landry Jones this season. I'm crying foul here and saying that the Big 12 gave Landry Jones the shaft!

On more of a positive note, five other Sooners made the list.
