The Davidsonies -year end awards - Part 1

These are just my own somewhat silly awards for the year. Some of them are relevant, some aren't. Don't take it too seriosly.

Best Performance of the Year: Brendan Winters scores 33 in the SoCon Championship game, wins MVP

Best Performance of the Year Runner Up: Jason Morton scores 27 to lead the Cats to a much-needed victory over The Citadel

Best Dunk of the Year: Boris Meno's alley-oop in the SoCon Championship game (this was no contest...picture not available, and ESPN took down the video link)

Worst bald head of the year: Phil Martelli

Most annoying mascot: St. Joseph's Hawk

McKillop speculation: Seton Hall

Apparently, Seton Hall is hiring someone not named McKillop.

Whew (slowly wipes brow).

Old news, but new news to me

Boretti Named Head Baseball Coach at Columbia University

Brett Boretti Named Columbia's Head Coach of Baseball

I played football with Brett at Davidson our freshman year. He is a good guy. I'm glad he's doing well.

Davidson posts from other blogs

The right way

Go Wildcats!

Always bet on black...and red

Pizza Parlor Madness: Davidson

Ohio State vs. Davidson - I met some girl Saturday night that went to Davidson. She was hot. Davidson still loses this game. (I thought this was funny, which is the only reason I posted it.)

Watch out for the Wildcats (old post)

Here's a post that uses Davidson (04-05) as an example:

McKillop speculation

Don't go, Coach McKillop!!!!!

For selfish reasons, I can't imagine not having the best coach in the Southern Conference anymore. However, if he feels he must pursue other options at this point of his career, then I would support his move 100%. I just can't picture "life after McKillop".

McKillop a finalist at Seton Hall

Seton Hall cool on Gonzalez

Hall job slipping away from Gonzalez

Larry Davis gone from Furman

In my opinion, this is good for Furman. Being from Greenville, I grew up with Furman athletics. I never thought Larry Davis was a good fit for Furman. But that's just my two cents.

From Furman website:
Larry Davis Leaving Furman For Associate Head Coaching Job At Cincinnati

From The Greenville News:
Furman's Davis takes Cincy position

Furman coach takes associate job at Cincinnati

Larry Davis Leaves Furman for Cincinnati Coaching Spot

Coming soon...

...a few goofy year-end awards (most annoying mascot, ugliest bald head, etc.)

I'm open to suggestions on awards to give out and recipients of said awards. I might even let you all vote on it. I'm just making this awards thing up as I go, so we'll see.
