    Awesome.

    Got Upset of the Year and Best Game of the Year.

    Of course, I can't imagine ISU-OSU not being the upset of the year.

    "Best Game" truly surprises me, considering the hype of the 9-6 game. I also expected ISU's upset would be dismissed as "purely accidental" and notable only for BCS-wrench-throwing, and ignore the actual on-field entertainment that almost gets lost in the mix — it was a freaking compelling game (yes, I'm biased). (And the final minutes of U-M/Notre Dame was unreal – probably runner-up, although I didn't see the 4OT A&M-KSU game or the Stanford-USC game)

    Funny thing, if someone saw that list of "finalists" in preseason, and had to guess which of the three, Tech over OU would've been, like, 90 percent of the vote. (And ISU ruined THAT upset-special, too, within a week. :smile:)

    Favorite line — Flop of the Year (non-team division)
    "The BCS -- So in review, every regular-season game didn't count, did it?"

    Should include "Surprise Team of the Year" category. As frustrating as Farm-a-Gotten has become, K-State wins that one hands-down.

    Wow ESPN is starting to turn on to ISU a little bit. They really like CPR

    There's probably going to be 1 or 2 big college basketball upsets. The question is, will our game still be in the minds of everybody so when voting rolls around they still remember the game and the impact it had?
