FOR: The prettiest blog, the best layout and design.
CRITERIA: An aesthetic appeal, whether from a stylish banner, a pleasing layout, or an eye-catching incorporation of blog technology.That's right, no foreplay. I'm getting right to the nominations.
Rocky Top Talk- You just have to include Joel for the world famous and groovy cool BCS animation. I think all the Sports Blog Nation pages are all very eye catching, and I have a hard time lifting one above the other outside of Joel's fancy flash work.
We Must Ignite This Couch- I'm a bit biased, but they keep it pretty fresh as far as the look goes. The pre-Sugar Bowl flash stuff was pretty good.
MZone- I just felt like there needed to be a blogspot representative. And while there aren't a ton of gizmo's and all, it's just a super clean look.
The New Blog on the Block Award
FOR: The best new college football blog.
CRITERIA: Must have launched sometime after last year's national championship game. Transitioning to a new blog or affiliating with a network mid-stream doesn't count.Fire Mark May- Talk about busting on to the scene. One of the most original blogs out there. I'll have what he's having. Unless there are no objections, nominations are closed for this award.
