2007 Nominees


2007 RUNNER UP: Burnt Orange Nation

BON's great contribution to the wonkier outliers of the college football blogosphere was diarist Horn Brain's devastating, continued expose of Richard Billingsley's ongoing debacle masquerading as a poll, but Peter, et al., also cranked out a daily dose of Texas-specific analysis that makes BON one of the top team-specific anythings out there.

They did not win, no, but there's no shame in losing to...

2007 WINNER: Sunday Morning Quarterback

Le duh! Let's take a brief gander at SMQ's front page as of right now. It contains:

  • A detailed analysis of Boise State's dominance in the WAC vis a vis other intra-conference contenders
  • A "we can rebuilt it" analysis of Alabama
  • A detailed etymology of the term "single wing" (a guest post from MGoBlog-ite Tyler Sellhorn, but still)
  • The Big Ten edition of SMQ's gigantic, perpetual "Stats Relevance Watch"
  • An out-of-character but devastating fisk of Mike Freeman, aaaaand
  • that video of Michigan's women's basketball coach going loco.
Not included: "Best Recurring Feature" nominee "Life on the Margins," any of SMQ's penetrating insights into what will and what did happen during the season, or his Absurdly Premature, Reasonably Anticipatory, or Frantically Rushed team previews. The only shame is that MGoBlog was not eligible so that SMQ could give this space the thorough beating it deserves. Congratulations, here is an award.
