Max Hall for Offensive POY
I know there's been a lot of Max Love on this blog lately, but I had to make one more plug for Max before today's MWC awards are announced.
Max Hall deserves to be named Offensive Player of the Year.
Currently, Max leads the conference in (get ready):
And he has been named MWC Player of the Week nine times, including an honor after the Air Force game in which Max threw 5 TD passes.
If Hall doesn't get the Offensive POY award for 2009, I will be forced to make some very hasty comments about the MWC officials who run the ceremony. Don't test me, MWC. Do the right thing.
Not surprisingly, TCU's Andy Dalton was named the 2009 MWC Offensive Player of the Year, and not Max Hall. This proves once again that the MWC awards are a complete joke.
These are supposed to be individual awards, but the MWC is instead using these honors to create more publicity for the undefeated TCU, who swept all post-season awards (Coach of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Special Teams Player of the Year).
This comes one year after Utah did the same thing, even though Austin Collie was clearly the MVP of the league (not Brian Johnson).
Disappointing, MWC. I thought you were better than that.
