CFBA Ballot, Part II

Posted by: Avinash on Sunday, February 24th, 2008

Part I here.

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.

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.

You want my vote on photoshops, give me historical references and you win. Hooray for TheMZone’s Hindenberg.

Best Podcast/Audio
FOR: The best audio thing, podcast type thing of the year.

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
