My College Football Blog Award Ballot, Part I
Generally, in many elections and choices for big awards, I like to keep my vote private. In this case? No way. I’m not up for anything and have nothing at stake, so the process be damned. And you always need more college football sources to read in your life.
Best MSM Blog
Lord. I’ve never heard of two of these guys, and Spencer Hall has been stuffed well enough already with a turkeyfest of awards. Well, I’d probably give it to Feld, but the fact is I can’t read ANYTHING HE PUBLISHES BECAUSE IT’S STUCK BEHIND ESPN “BERLIN WALL” INSIDER. So Stewie Mandel it is. Don’t kill Mom with your new toy Stewie.
The Dr. Z Award
- Blue Gray Sky
- Burnt Orange Nation
- Sunday Morning Quarterback
- Saurian Sagacity
- Smart Football
- Statistically Speaking
If I had discovered Smart Football earlier, the blog might have had a shot–I’ve already put it in my RSS feed for after-hours reading. But SMQ wins this year. Great analysis of why LSU and Ohio State deserved to be in the title game clinched the vote here–and there was a strong volume of such posts for the entire year.
The Trev Alberts Quits To Do Construction Award
This might be retroactive, but that Simpsons-college football comparison is still one of my six favorite blog posts, EVER. And their presidential post ain’t too bad either. Time to reward them.
The Job Award
MGoBlog? Yes, I’m aware that Brian was a living shell after the first two weeks, but the Wolverines still finished 8-4. They were a win away from the Rose Bowl. They beat the defending national champs in their bowl game, AND they got the best possible coach for the Michigan job. I would’ve dreamed for this season. Sort of.
My choice is Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician; anytime you’re forced to write about Syracuse football, you deserve some merit for that award. There is no light at the end of the tunnel, there is no opening at the end of the tunnel.
The Keith Jackson Circa 1995 Award
Well, I’m trying to remember Keith Jackson circa 1995. SMQ grabs this one by a nudge over MGoBlog, just because I enjoy reading general CFB over team-specific stuff a little more. Which is probably why no one reads mine.
And with EDSBS ineligible for most categories, I can see SMQ racking up this year. Good times. We’ll move onto more interesting categories next week.
If you have a college football blog, you can still vote! Get to the polls! And point out any other blogs you like so I can add it to the blogroll.
