Rejoice, MGoBloggers. The Name of the Year 2015 bracket is out!
I am proud to say that two of my nominees made it into this year's field: Mussolini Africano and Charity Sunshine Tilleman-Dick. While I have no way of knowing whether it was my nomination that got them in, I'm going to pretend it was because doing so makes me happy. I love NOTY very much, and 2015 has got a really deep field.
Early favorites include Manmeet Colon, Flavious Coffee, Understanding Bush, Reverend Pierrebatista Pizzaballa, and Infinite Grover. But you've got to let these things marinate, I'm sure that when it's all said and done my favorite name will have shifted.
Brian has posted about this in the main feed, but Iris needs a little MGoBoost:
Voting ends Monday for the Name of the Year. Michigan is pulling for Iris Macadangdang, an '08 alum.
They're styling it an SEC vs Big 10 matchup because the other finalist is Barkevious Mingo, who bailed on Michigan for LSU.
Orson Swindle of Every Day Should Be Saturday reckons it's an EDSBS vs MGoBlog vote.
Let's show 'em how we do: http://nameoftheyear.blogspot.com/2009/04/2009-noty-final-barkevious-min...
