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! Today, we present:
Scraggly mop of frat bro hair optional.
Brandon Harris (LSU) — Leonard Fournette is going to get Derrick Henry level carries this year, which means Harris only needs to step it up when/if Fournette gets shut down (ahem, 2015 vs. Bama). His 2015 numbers look like they’re from a Doug Nussmeier led offense: 148-of-276 passes (53.6%) for 2,158 yards (7.8 YPA) with 13 touchdowns and 6 interceptions.
Some Dude (Stanford) — This offense has Christian Friggin’ McCaffrey. We didn’t even bother looking up the quarterback’s name.
Greyson Lambert (QB, UGA) — Lambert isn’t a playmaker, much less a game-changer, and yet Georgia fared well last year. That’s pretty much the epitome of a Game Manager.
(QB, Alabama) Be it Cooper Bateman or newcomer Blake Barnett, one thing is for sure…they are just the next player up in a LONG-ASS lineage of Game Managers.
Who are your preseason favs to win the nearly-illustrious Brodie Parker McCoker? 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!
One weekend of college football in the books, and there are lots of reasons to rejoice. Less so if you’re Stanford, Nebraska, or Penn State, and you might have to just lean on that “W” if you’re a Barner.
Carey & Jeremy take you through the weekend’s best (and worst) and lay it all out for you in small, simple words (cause those are the one’s we can pronunciate).
We hope you enjoyed the feast that was Week One of college football, because this weekend is slim pickins (not fun Blazing Saddles Pickens, either, but BJ and the Bear type Slim that you only watch because the corporate stooges at the networks wait until later and later in the fall before airing any new material, and — dadgumit — you’re just not going to spend THIS DAY trying to finish the last “Divergent” book).
Jeremy and Carey give you the lows-down on
BONUS: Play along with Jeremy in our new game, Know your SEC Cupcakes!
