It's award time! Orchestra, bitte.
Now that your brain's thoroughly cleansed...
The College Football Blogger Awards are comin' round the bend. Joel's got the explanations and bylaws up at Rocky Top Talk; Brian's got round one of the nominations; and Peter's got a full bushel ready over at Burnt Orange Nation. The Mayor will be along with another round later today.
And without further ado...
