Name of the Year
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.
Round 2 voting for NOTY has begun, and Leviticus is losing to some jabroni that wasn't born with the name they're competing with. We need to fix this, vote here!
In this article, the NOTY bloggers have brought up that, much like EDSBS with Mingo and us with Macadangdang last year, the college football blogosphere has been active in campaigning for a winner again this year:
Pat Angerer, an Iowa linebacker, is getting blog-driven support from the fans over at Black Heart, Gold Pants and Black Shoe Diaries. While it's strange to see Iowa and PSU cooperating, I feel like this gives a good opportunity to flex our e-might/peen. The voting post is here:
Currently running neck and neck with Angerer is my personal favorite of the bracket, Furious Bradley. However, this isn't a personal army call, I feel like us either supporting Angerer for a show of Big Ten solidarity, or opposing him to see if we can beat Iowa/PSU would be equally entertaining. What do you guys think?
Also, I apologize if the post is a tad rambly -- I'm mid all-nighter for a math final, my head hurts.
Dick Smallberries, Jr. has been disqualified from the Name of the Year bracket. Bummer. He was a popular choice around here, but I still think Nohjay Nimpson is a shoe-in...
I didn't see anything already posted, but the 2010 Name of the Year bracket is out. And it's awesome.
The number one overall seed has got to be a shoe-in to win. Nohjay Nimpson.
Also, I'm proud to say I made a post on this very site claiming God's Power Offor as the best name ever...and he also made the bracket as a 1-seed. Along with Wave Ryder.
