Countdown to Football Frustration

Next Frustrating Hoops Victory

Next Lacrosse Annihilation

It's an Honor Just to be Nominated

If losing is par for the course, Syracuse -- and anything mildly associated with the Orange -- is at least four-under.

The 2006 College Football Blogger Awards is now at its apex; nominations have concluded, the voting is complete, and the roster of winners is slowly, yet surely, making its way through the college football universe.

This notebook, appropriately, was nominated in a single category: The Job Award. Designed to honor faithfulness in the face abject failure, the award epitomizes the inherent purpose and valor of college athletics.

Fittingly, Orange:44 failed to take home the hardware. Doug Gillett, Georgia partisan and author of the canonical Hey Jenny Slater wrangled high honors in the category. The defeat is not surprising in and of itself -- I was torn between voting for Doug or Ian Cohen's Virginia FanHouse -- but the fact that enough people sympathized with this notebook's collegiate affiliation is heartening.

I think.

Anyway, a hearty "congratulations" to Doug. And to everyone who took time out of their day to cast a ballot for this notebook, "thank you."
