Today center J.D. Walton received a great honor by being named one of six finalists for the Rimington Trophy, awarded to the nation's top center. Congratulations J.D.

Also released yesterday was the annual Associated Press All-Big 12 teams, which included Derek Epperson, Joe Pawelek and Jordan Lake on the first team and honorable mention for J.D. Walton and Kendall Wright.

For off-the-field honors we need to mention that 16 Bears were named to the 2009 Academic All-Big 12 teams, including freshman quarterback Nick Florence, who was one of three honorees with perfect 4.0 GPAs. Very well done, guys.

Lastly, on the media front, local Waco Tribune-Herald beat writer John Werner's season wrap-up article was published today, you can read his "Baylor football looks to 2010" take here

Also a good chance here at the conclusion of the season to link to a nice Q&A with Baylor Athletics chaplain Wes Yeary, written by Matt Larsen of the Baylor Lariat.

In case you missed them, postseason All-Big 12 football honors have started to be released and include several Bears student-athletes.

Baylor's 2009 season officially ended with Saturday's 20-13 loss to Texas Tech in front of 70K+ in the Shootout at Cowboys Stadium, and as the calendar turns to December Baylor fans can look forward to the mid-month signing period for junior college transfers.

The Bears have already added a new player to the program, when local product Troy Baker from Connally High School, signed a financial aid contract.

In case you missed Coach Briles' season-ending discussion with the local media, read a transcript here.

In NFL alumni news, former BU kicker Matt Bryant was signed Tuesday by the Atlanta Falcons after kicking for Florida Tuskers in the UFL's inagural season.
