CFBA Ballot, Part II
The Brady Quinn Award
FOR: The prettiest blog. CRITERIA: An aesthetic appeal and usability. The best looking and most functional blog.
I like MGoBlog’s design–absolutely functional and works perfectly within the contours, but they asked for the prettiest, and pretty is such a superficial term. So I’m going with Gate 21, because you can tell LawVol has designed sites before. Good stuff.
Best New Blog
FOR: The best new college football blog. CRITERIA: Must have launched sometime after last year’s national championship game. Transitioning to a new blog or affiliating with a network mid-stream doesn’t count.
This one’s going to be a run away. I only read one or two posts from the Midwestern startup, and I knew BHGP was something special.
The Old Faithful Award
FOR: The best recurring feature of the year. CRITERIA: The feature should be posted weekly and be generally good and stuff.
- Upon Further Review, MGoBlog
- This Week In Schadenfreude, The Fanhouse
- The Weekly Top Ten, Snarkastic
- Life On The Margins, Sunday Morning Quarterback
- The Fulmer Cup, Every Day Should Be Saturday
- The Animated Blogpoll, Rocky Top Talk
Stacked category. I really enjoy all of these. But I nominated The Weekly Top Ten for this, so I’ll stick with my guns. Plus I have a terrible blogcrush on Holly. Forgive me darling.
The Jenn Sterger’s Rack Award
FOR: The best photoshop or other counterfeit gag of the year.
- Sparta Needs A Bigger Bottomless Pit, Mr Two Cents
- Bob Stoops Lays Eggs, Mr Two Cents
- Shed Scene, LSUFreek
- They Live, LSUFreek
- Fark Of The Covenant, LSUFreek
- Oh, The Humanity!, The MZone
You want my vote on photoshops, give me historical references and you win. Hooray for TheMZone’s Hindenberg.
FOR: The best audio thing, podcast type thing of the year.
- CFB Weekly
- College Football Podcast
- Seventh Day Adventure, Football Outsiders
- EDSBS Live (w/ Burnt Orange Nation), Every Day Should Be Saturday
- Dome And Domer
- In The Bleachers
Listened to EDSBS Live every weekend, got acquainted with Verne Lundquist, Bruce Feldman, Phil Steele, SMQ, Brian from MgoBlog, and all the usual CFB suspects. Easily the most pleasant experience of what was otherwise a depressing season for a Cal fan.
Leave your award thoughts (and other recommendations of good reads) in the comments.
Next weekend: The Conference Awards and the Big Awards
