There are still more than two months before the 2014 college football season finally welcomes us back with open arms, and we're doing our best to pass the time until those first kickoffs.
A lot of focus has been put on team expectations for this fall, with programs evaluated based on their chances of making the first-ever College Football Playoff. The quality of their rosters and coaching staffs factors into this process, but comparing individuals doesn't.
That's what the many awards given out are for.
Watch lists have already started popping up for the bevy of postseason college football awards given to the nation's best quarterbacks, linebackers, linemen and even kickers, not to mention for the best coach and several that honor the top overall player. The Heisman Trophy gets the most attention, but there are many more that are just as distinctive.
These awards will be based on the body of work put forth throughout the 2014 season, but it's never too early to start thinking who's going to take home some hardware in December.
