2016 Preseason Awards Watchlist – Crab Legs of Destiny

8 Jul , 2016  


As the mayflies die out, the ticks become more aggressive, and the long muggy summer drags slowly towards the finish line of Autumn, so too does Igno Rants of College Football emerge from its long off-season hibernation.

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!

The Jameis Winston “Crab Legs of Destiny” Award

This award is given to the player whose off-the-field antics represents a significant proportion of their total media coverage. Named for none other than FSU’s own “Famous” Jameis Winston, this award represents the pinnacle of “there’s no such thing as bad publicity.”  Unless it lands you with Tampa Bay. In that case, it sucks real bad.

The Watchlist

  • Kenny Hill (QB, TCU) — Famously flamed out at the school that made Johnny Manziel a hero. Still playing in the lawless Republic of Texas. (See: Baylor)
  • Dalvin Cook (RB, FSU) — What Texas is for lawlessness, Florida is for reckless stupidity. Bonus: hails from Miami.
  • The entire Colorado roster — Buff’s history + legal weed = Rocky Mountain High baby!
  • Anyone featured in the Netflix documentary “Last Chance U”
