A 5-6, 190-pound halfback, Seymour was a first team selection while the 6-3, 250-pound Bazuin, a defensive end, was a member of the second team.
A true freshman, Seymour rushed for 1,117 yards and eight touchdowns on 205 carries. He played in just nine games, missing three with an injury. He
broke the 100-yard barrier in seven games, including all five since returning from a midseason leg injury.
Seymour, nicknamed "Bam Bam," also caught 13 passes for 103 yards and returned 16 kickoffs for 330 yards.
Bazuin, a redshirt freshman, had 70 tackles and led the nation's freshmen in tackles for loss with 14 for minus 53 yards. He also had six
QB sacks for minus 37 yards.
Seymour was named the Mid-American Conference "Freshman of the Year" and Bazuin was fourth in the balloting.
The Chippewas now have five members on their football team to be so-honored by TSN. Tight end Tory Humphrey was a second team pick and
safety James King a fourth team honoree in 2001, while place-kicker Mike Gruzwalski was a first team choice in 2002.
