Carr cracks the Top 10 and still has a season remaining to pad the resume. In his first season in the MWC, Carr led the nation in passing yards (4,104) and was third in the country with 37 touchdowns.
Carr was named the MWC Offensive Player of the Year and was an honorable mention for the Sports Illustrated All-American team.
Another standout season and the FSU signal-caller will solidify himself as one of the better quarterbacks ever to play in the conference.
I understand Urlacher only played a year in the conference, but 8 is too low for a guy who did it all in ABQ. Really can't argue with anyone else . . .
It's crap that Bradlee Van Pelt isn't on this list. I believe along with Dalton he is the only other play to win two play of the year awards in the MWC.

Thanks Catch. I'll say that if BSU was in the MWC forMoore's four years (or probably even 3 out of the 4), he would have dropped Smith to #2. Moore was incredible, but 75% of his career was in a different conference--including his best season.
An intelligent, well thought out list. Would be easy to put someone like Moore higher (he may deserve it) and forget guys like Hughes and Weddle. Of course, had Boise been in the MWC earlier, this list would look a lot different.
