The All Important Watch Lists

Well the all important “Watch Lists” are starting to make their way onto the college football scene.  The pundit poll predictions and various preview magazines are making their early mark on the newsstands and internet as well.  Recruiting has kind of dried up and most college coaches are hitting the links while freshman are getting acclimated to summer school, 7-on-7 drills and getting pushed by the conditioning coaches.  All is about to change next month.  Hurrah!
The dribble so far:

Zack Martin – OT – Outland Trophy

Braxton Cave – C – Outland Trophy

Tyler Eifert – TE – Mackey Award

Kapron Lewis-Moore – DE- Bronko Nagurski Award

Manti Te’o – LB – Bronko Nagurski Award

Manti Te’o – LB – Bednarik Award

Did we miss anybody?

Here are a few awards and trophies yet to dribble out:

Rimington Trophy

Lott Trophy

Butkus Award

Heisman Trophy

Don’t ask us all the specific areas of position recognition or what the awards mean.  We don’t know or care.  It would be fun to follow the money and see who actually benefits from the various awards and trophies.  Sure the players get a nice hunk of wood, chrome, silver, bronze, or pewter.  But come on now, nobody is doing this for free, who is pocketing money from all these awards?

Can you name who won the Dick Butkus award last year?

The only one we can remember is the Heisman. – RG III, simply because he was drafted by the Skins over here on the East Coast.

It does not appear any Irish will be in the running for the Heisman.  That’s a shame because the Heisman candidates normally coincides with a Team’s run for the National Championship.
