when talking about MVP, I seriously do not see how Braxton does not win this award. He is the catalyst to the offense.... I guess you can make the same arguement for TM, but I think braxton is more valuable than TM... Homerism? maybe....

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

One would think they would have someone that won a POY award, but look at the burning sack of hair that came from the COY award.

-The Aristocrats!

After BOb took down the COY, I think the award should go to Indiana long snapper Matt Dooley.

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

I had the Illinois 3rd-string holder at the top of my ballot

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Eh, this award usually gets it right. I'd expect Miller to win this one.

Do I come off as arrogant? Shame on me, I was hoping it would more obvious.

I'm expecting a Martinez win considering that this is voted on by the coaches and the coaches voted Martinez first team over Braxton.

After the CoTY nonsense, it wouldn't shock me if Braxton lost.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

Look at the photo accompanying this piece of Chicago drivel.Now who do you think is gonna win.If the coaches vote on it, no Buckeye wins.If UF Meyer flips on more recruit,you kiss anything voted on by the coaches goodbuy for the duration of his tenure.It's likely to late to kiss and makeup already.We on the B1G bad list.GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

It would be symbolic of a dismal year in the B1G if the lasting image of the Silver Football Award was Martinez's sickening throwing motion.
I don't often puke, but when I do it's thinking of that throwing motion.

I agree with Brewstersmillions -- this award usually gets it right. Braxton should win, which would give the Buckeyes the all-time lead for this award (now, we are tied with Michigan with 15 each all time)!
Here is a link to a nice article on the history and a list of all-time winners:
