Well, not in any way that counts, really, but I can't imagine that a part of Woodson isn't pleased that he was picked over Brohm by ESPN's Ivan Maisel as a pre-season first-team All-American. Pre-season honors are always nice, but the ones at the end of the year are the ones that really count.
Still, this has to be very satisfying for Woodson after laboring in Brohm's shadow (in football, at least) virtually his entire competitive life.

This is big news for Wildcats fans, and something we can revel in. I know that recognition by Barad Dûr may stick in the craw of some. But as Rick Bozich notes on his blog, Maisel isn't the only one who thinks Woodson is deserving -- NFL Draft Scout projects André as the #1 quarterback drafted in this year's NFL draft.
So congratulations, André, from those of us at A Sea of Blue, and I think we can speak for the entire Big Blue Nation as well. We can't wait to see you take the field this year for the Blue and White!
Hat tip to reader Run and Gun, who clued me in to this last night, but I was too fatigued to post.
I know it's early, but I just can't resist a little schadenfreude. If you can't take a little perverse pleasure in the pain of your bitter rival, what's the point of being a fan?
