The one thing that distinguishes Hustle Belt, and really SBNation in general, from myriad other sites out there is that it is fan-driven, fan-focused, and fan-voiced. And there’s no better representation of that than the Hustle Hall of Fame.
For the last few weeks (check the backstory here), we’ve accepted nominations for the legends of each Mid-American Conference program and asked for you to help us pare down a list of nominees to the ten that would be put up for the vote. Today is that time.
Next up, the Northern Illinois Huskies!
The initial list of nominees was announced here, with a good discussion in the comment section ensuing to get us to our final ten names. The ten nominated for induction to the Hustle Hall of Fame are:
- Ron Conrad (Wrestling)
- Paul Dawkins (Men's Basketball)
- Ruth Fender (Field Hockey, Golf, Softball, Volleyball)
- Chandler Harnish (Football)
- TJ Lux (Men's Basketball)
- Jordan Lynch (Football)
- Carol Owens (Women's Basketball)
- Jean Pankonin (Badminton, Women's Basketball, Field Hockey, Softball, Tennis, and Volleyball)
- Fritz Peterson (Baseball)
- Michael Turner (Football)
Voting begins with publication of this post with the poll below and will conclude at 11:59PM on Sunday, June 25. Top two vote getters for each program become inaugural members in the Hustle Hall of Fame! We’ll announce the winners next week here on the site with the usual Hustle Belt panache and flair.
Get to it Huskies fans, your legacy is at stake. Choose who will represent you in the Hustle Hall of Fame wisely!
