Play of the year:

Okay, tell me where I’m wrong or stupid.

Note, for head coach, I assumed it meant coach of the year. Chris Creighton led an Eastern Michigan team, one of the worst programs in the history of the sport, and who went 1-11 last season, to a 7-4 finish and just the program’s third bowl. That’s simply amazing.
