The List Of MAC Football Players On 2011 Award Watch Lists

This is the list to end all watch lists ... assuming there are no more watch lists to watch.

So far a total of 27 honors were given to 22 players. Northern Illinois leads the way with both four players and seven nominals. Roosevelt Nix wins the hoarder award by being on three watch lists. Buffalo, EMU and Ball State feel left out.

This does not mean that they're the only ones eligible to win shiny trophies. Rarely do MAC players win these things, but for some of the awards people can be added to the lists midseason or on the semifinal watch lists, which come out at random intervals.

(Yes, I am aware that the Walter Camp Trophy watch list comes out Monday. Not sure why they needed the weekend to dawdle on this. Because, see, I thought of this post today.)

The index of awards which feature MAC players (nerts to the others):

Bednarik: Defense (any)
Biletnikoff: Wide receiver
Butkus: Linebacker
Lombardi: Linemen (OL or DL)
Mackey: Tight end
Maxwell: Outstanding player
Nagurski: Defense (any)
