The 2012 Doak Walker Award Watch List for the nation's top running back was announced Thursday of this week. It is named after former Southern Methodist University and Detroit Lions football player, Doak Walker. Wisconsin Badger Montee Ball is an obvious favorite since he was a finalist for the award last season as well as a Heisman finalist. Last year's winner was Trent Richardson from Alabama which is now in the NFL, but the SEC still has strong candidates on the list returning including Marcus Lattimore for South Carolina and Knile Davis for Arkansas, both injured last year. The Pac-12 has the most with eight then followed by the Big Ten and Big 12 with seven each. The SEC finally trails the other conferences on the watch lists with just six listed. You can find more information about the Davey O'Brien Award at DoakWalkerAward.com.  2012 Doak Walker Award Watch List:Pac-12 (8):Kenjon Barner (Sr.), OregonJesse Callier (Jr.), WashingtonJohnathan Franklin (Sr.), UCLACame...

Badgers' Ball faced with lofty expectations

MADISON, Wis. All indications suggest that running back Montee Ball can't possibly replicate the masterful season he produced a year ago. Too many changing parts at Wisconsin, pundits note.
