Welcome to the 1st Annual App-ademy Awards, where we celebrate the fact that there ain’t shit going on and we need something to talk about. (Is it football season yet?!)
I’ll be giving out various awards to the most deserving schools and players in the world.
How does it work? Well, first I come up with the category. Then I form a 1-person committee to determine the nominees. Then all of the writers of AppStateNation (AKA me) cast their official ballots to determine the winner.
It’s a very complicated process, but just know the winner is absolute Gospel and if you disagree you are wrong and also stupid.
Now for the first category/nominees:
College Football Team Most Likely to Go Undefeated in 2012-13
*USC Trojans – They return 17 starters after finishing 12-2 last year. Their schedule is pretty light with the exceptions of playing Oregon at home and a weakened Stanford team. Their first likely loss is in the national championship vs whatever SEC team feels like winning it this year.
*Appalachian State – You shouldn’t be surprised to see us on this list. I mean this IS an App State blog and I can pick whatever team I want! That being said if we can get past ECU it is very doable. We don’t play for moral victories here so don’t be surprised if we come out of week 1 with a W. However, my guess is we finish with 1 or 2 losses going into the postseason.
*North Dakota State – The reigning FCS national champion has a legitimate shot at an undefeated season. They should be favored in every game, their hardest one being at Colorado State, an extremely weak FBS school. They probably won’t lose until they meet us in the playoffs.
*UNC-Charlotte – Why are they on this list, you ask? I mean they don’t even have a football team yet, right? Well that’s the genius part. If they don’t have a team, and don’t play any games…THEY CAN’T LOSE!!!
