Kirk Herbstreit is one of the most respected college football commentators there is. When he talks, people listen. He's so popular, and his opinion matters so much, that he was able to create his own awards: the Herbie Awards.
Seriously, what have you done with your life lately to where you are able to create your own award show?
With the college football season set to begin next week, Herbstreit has released the top five candidates for each award. Now, of course, the candidates could change with great performances from other players. But this is just a preseason list of proven stars that we believe will have a tremendous year.
Still, like us all, Herbstreit made a few mistakes on his list and may have underrated a few players as well.
Here are a few of the hits and misses of the 2012 Herbie Awards.
