The College Football Blogger Awards
Joel has posted all the details at Rocky Top Talk, including a full list of the awards and their discriptions. You need not be a blogger to make nominations, and if you are so inclined, you can suggest some nominees here.
Here are mine:
Dr. Z Award
FOR: Cogent, interesting analysis.
The Blue-Gray Sky -- BGS regularly features in-depth analyses of Notre Dame's statistics that are always interesting.
The Trev Alberts Quits To Do Construction Award
FOR: comic relief; overall hilarity.
EDSBS -- Tapping college football's comedic potential for two seasons now. Not only is the site a lot of fun, it's also good therapy after a bad weekend (or nine bad weekends...).
House Rock Built -- One of the funnier team-centric blogs out there. Plus, I really like this t-shirt.
The Sports Fans Don't Cry Award
FOR: The blog that has suffered through its chosen team's dismal season with the most dignity.
Orange 44 -- Matt's endured two painful years in a row and his team has an offense that is, statistically, worse than NC State's. That's some slam dunk give-him-the-trophy-now type stuff right there. How he manages not to cry, or to heave things at other, larger things, is beyond me.
Falcon Nation -- I mean, dude, they lost to Temple.
The Keith Jackson Circa 1995 Award
FOR: The blog with the most consistently expressive and excellent writing.
mgoblog -- I visit Brian's blog daily even though I'm not a Michigan fan. That's a credit to his writing.
The Brady Quinn Award
FOR: The prettiest blog.
The Communal Blog Award
FOR: The blog with the best community interaction.
Blogger Championship Series
The best from each conference.
ACC: StateFans Nation
Big Ten: mgoblog
Big XII: Burnt Orange Nation
Big East: Pitt Blather
Pac-10: Conquest Chronicles
SEC: Hey Jenny Slater
Non-BCS: Have You Met Tony?
General: The Wizard of Odds
I'm also supposed to identify what I think are my three best posts of the college football season. So here goes...
