The LSC plays defense?

How could he not be? Who else should have won it?

It should have gone to Whiteside from ACU, Asiodu from UCO or Perkins from TAMUK before going to Hope. Hope went head-to-head with all three of those players, had worse stats than those mentioned all three times and his team lost all three times. As far as d-lineman are concerned, I don't think you'll find a coach in Texas that would take Hope over Whiteside. Not saying Hope is bad, but those other three proved to be better, IMHO.
