Ricky Stanzi calls award watch lists "bogus"

Iowa's Ricky Stanzi  has been put on several of the award watch lists for the 2010 season. They include the watch lists for the Davey O'Brien, Manning, and the Premier Player of College Football Awards. Not to mention frequent chatter of Stanzi possibly being a Heisman candidate.
So what does America's Quarterback think of all these watch lists? Not much.

"I think that watch lists or anything like that are pretty bogus," said Stanzi. "I mean, they put 30 guys on there. What's the point, you know?
"It's kind of stupid, if you think about it. Nobody even finds out who the winners are until the end, right? So, I mean - it's great to be on a watch list. It's awesome. We've got some guys honored that way. But we'd rather win the first game than stay on a watch list."

This is probably a good reaction to the pre-season hype that many players get. Stanzi is more focused on winning games, not awards. It's just more proof of how humble and level-headed Stanzi is.
