BJJ First stripe taking forever

I've been training in BJJ for roughly 6 months now, and have yet to earn my first stripe on my whit belt. I've missed about a month or so due to injuries, however, i competed in an in house tournament(lost), and consistently tap out 1 and 2 stripe white belts. I've also submitted 2 blue belts. I cant fathom why i haven't earned my stripe yet. My Academy is quite large (Gracie Barra) so we don't always get the most individual attention, however guys that have joined well after me, have already received their first stripes. guys that i still tap out. I definitely don't want to bring it up to my professor as that would be whiny and disrespectful, i know a stripe is just a piece of tape but it would be nice to be recognized for my effort. Any ideas or comments would be greatly appreciated.
