    Who gets the Wuerffel? The QB that gets sacked in his own end zone two plays in a row, or, Qb that leads his team to the worst bowl loss of the year?

    Johnny and Dave started the awards named after them...WAIT FOR IT...themselves! Hopefully, they saw a good business opportunity and cashed in...it did help that they were deserving even though self-serving. Dave got his buddy/employer's foundation to help start it...IIRC, Johnny was probably on his own. I'm thinking of creating a GFOA National Fan of the year award, I'm expecting HMAX to offer to sponsor it any day now.

    What are the requirements to win the GFOA National Fan of the year award? What do I need to do to be considered? Who do I need to kiss up to? It would be an honor just to be on the Watch List.:)

    I mean, he did win the Heisman and a national title the following year which makes the 96 Fiesta Bowl beatdown that much more impressive
