Collie's place in the MWC record books looks impressive. He ranks fourth all-time in receiving yards, seventh in receptions, and first in receiving touchdowns. Just imagine what he would have done if he had come back for his senior year.
Collie's junior year was his best in a Cougars uniform. He caught 106 passes for 1,538 yards and 15 touchdowns. His gaudy numbers netted him All-MWC and All-American honors.
The Indianapolis Colts selected Collie in the fourth round in 2009.
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.
