All Century Team
Have been counting down from 50 announcing them over social media, 1 every other day. Here are the ones posted thus far:

50 Michael Roberts
49 Stephen Williams
48 Dan Molls
47 Mark Brandon

Can't argue about any of those selections, although I would have rated Brandon a lot higher. I have a feeling the choices will be tilted toward the more recent players.

Agree with both those points.

Molls and Williams were great players for UT but top 50 greatest? Not so sure...

Agree. Also, if you played at UT before the 1960's you're probably not getting many votes.

46. Adam Najarian

I have to admit, I was not at all familiar with him. Played 1932-34.

Well, Williams is #2 all time at UT in career receptions and yards. Also 5th in TD receptions and 3 time all-MAC. So, to me those stats warrant a top 50 spot.

Molls maybe not so clear cut. Twice all-MAC, 6th all time in tackles. Led the nation in tackles in 2012 and was a 1st team academic all-American.

lol, took a special skill to be a center back in the day. The guards must have been out near the hash marks.

"Najarian" probably first wave of Armenians.

Didn't Molls also miss most an entire season after an injury? Memory tells me that was the case, but can no longer completely trust my memory. Most of it is stored on a floppy disk in my brain and recalling it takes too long and usually skips parts of what was stored there originally.
