FTRS' Ballot For The 2010 Postseason Blogger Awards

New, 12 comments

The guys over at Bull Run are putting together the Postseason Blogger Awards. Why let the mainstream media have all the fun? We've included our nominees (mostly top-3) and the links go to the respective awards' finalists/semi-finalists. Should you think you have an argument, let us know in the comments.

Heisman - Most Outstanding Player (Finalists not yet listed)

We nominated Cameron Newton. Should you have any beef with this pick, let us know. There are lots of rumors continuing to swirl around him but he's put the results on the field and he deserves the Heisman Trophy. We believe the Heisman should be awarded to an individual who actually lives up to the definition of the award.
