2016 Awards Watchlist: The Sauced-up Award

13 Jul , 2016  

To kick off the 2016 season, we’re introducing a slough of awards for the year — and with them, our preseason watchlist for each.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to get the latest!

Alcoholism is no joke, y’all. If you or someone you love is struggling with alcohol addiction, please call the Alcohol & Drug Abuse Hotline (800) 729-6686, or contact your local AA chapter.

This week, we look at coaches who — by dint of stress or personality — might succumb to the lure of Lady Liquor and stroll the sidelines while sloshed.

The Steve Sarkesian Sauced-Up Award


Our pre-season watchlist includes:

Les Miles (LSU) — From awkward interviews to outright madness in clock management, Lester never ceases to amaze. Maybe he’s a genius or maybe he’s just intoxicated, but he’s as close to a sure thing for this award as they come.

bill-musWill Muschamp (USC East) — If there’s one thing the 2015 Iron Bowl taught us, it’s that Billy is one (perceived) bad call away from jumping over the Cliffs of Insanity. Add to that the inherent difficulties of following the HBC at South Carolina, and you’ve got a recipe for disaster sauce.

partridgeCharlie Partridge (FAU) — Let’s count the strikes against the dude: (1) It’s in Florida, (2) the Owls have a history of coaches with drug-related incidents, and (3) the man is bested only by Muschamp for Resting Angry Face.

Who are your preseason favs to win the inaugural Sauced-Up Award ? Tell us over a beer you bought, leave us a comment here, or on social media. Catch all of our 2016 awards watchlists, and join us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to nominate your favorite players!
