Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Spencer Rattler is not happy with the All-Big 12 Awards that were released on Thursday.
Rattler was no where to be found on the awards list, as Iowa State QB Brock Purdy was named first-team All-Big 12 at the position, and Texas’ Sam Ehlinger earned second-team awards.
This is despite Spencer Rattler throwing the second-most touchdowns in the league behind Ehlinger, and he was the most efficient quarterback in the Big 12 with a rating of 174.7. Ehlinger was second in this category at 149.9. Rattler did have more turnovers than the other two, with seven interceptions, tied for the fourth-most in the Big 12.
But clearly there is a case to be made that Rattler should have been first or second team.
After the awards were announced, Rattler simply tweeted the following.
This appears to be Rattler’s way of saying he’s taking notes on who doesn’t believe in him and that many of the voters don’t think he is one of the best quarterbacks in the Big 12 conference.
Rattler walked into a tough spot as he followed up three-straight years of Heisman winners and finalists in Baker Mayfield, Kyler Murray and Jalen Hurts, who all started NFL games this past weekend. They were also all veterans, while Rattler is a redshirt freshman. And with the struggles of a COVID-ridden season, Rattler improved drastically and held his own.
And of course this comes just two days before the Oklahoma Sooners try to win a sixth-straight Big 12 Championship when they take on the Iowa State Cyclones on Saturday.
Oklahoma vs. Iowa State kicks off at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.
And for Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler, he apparently even has more of a chip on his shoulder heading into his first Big 12 title appearance.
