And The Nominees Are...

I'm honored and pleased to be bringing you a portion of the official nominees for the First Annual College Football Blog Awards. Joel got the party started this morning, before handing off the first nomination announcement to Brian. Before reading on, please take a moment to see the first series of nominations.

Before I roll out the second set of nominations, allow me to note that the third series of nominations are forthcoming in one hour at Every Day Should Be Saturday.

Nominations after the jump...


Barbs is impressed with this year's nominees, too.



Editor's note: All links will pop to new windows. You know, to encourage you to check out all this good stuff without losing your place.




The Keith Jackson Circa 1995 Award

For: The blog with the most consistently expressive and excellent writing.

Criteria: Mechanical competency, yes, but the ability to turn a devastatingly funny phrase or write something compelling is probably more important. This isn't an award for copy editing; it's an award for kickin' prose.
