Last summer we brought you the blockbuster series that was the 2013 MAC Top 68 Football Player Countdown. We laughed. We cried. We argued a lot about player rankings. In the end, I think we can all agree, the story wasn't done.
After a long, cold winter (and some ridiculously muggy spring/summer months) of hiding out, trying to rebuild ourselves to a bigger and stronger version than we were before, the 2014 MAC Top 50 Football Player Countdown is coming to a browser near you...DRUM ROLL PLEASE...tomorrow.
Why 50 this year? Well, celebrating the 69th anniversary is cool and all, but quite frankly I don't trust your maturity level, so we went with a nice round number that doesn't inspire juvenile snickering on every mention.
Like last year's smash hit, the 2014 countdown features an epic list of the MAC's top football players, as voted on by an esteemed panel. A special directors cut has the painful montage of the voting process, but it hit the chopping block, so all you need to know is we had bloggers from Hustle Belt and from around the MAC blogosphere submit ballots to create the most comprehensive arbitrary list on MAC football talent the web has ever seen.
Each day we will profile a new player, counting down from No. 50 to No. 1. The profiles will be released at 10 a.m. every morning until August 23rd, a few days before the start of the 2014 MAC football season. You can guess who will come next, but the only way to know for sure will be to check in daily. Subscribe to our StoryStream here and get updates on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter (@HustleBelt) to be sure you know who the latest top MAC player is before Jon from accounting. Then you can spoil it for that dick when you see him at the watercooler.
Now let the prognosticating begin! Who will be No. 50?
