Bruggeman Up For The "Rudy Award," And Yes, THAT Rudy

God DAMN it:

University of Iowa NOMINATES Hawkeyes senior offensive lineman
Rob Bruggeman FOR COLLEGE FOOTBALL RUDY AWARD

 

LAS VEGAS, NV (December 9, 2008) – The University of Iowa nominated Hawkeyes senior offensive lineman Rob Bruggeman for the SECOND ANNUAL COLLEGE FOOTBALL RUDY AWARD, it was announced today by The Rudy Foundation 501(c)(3) charitable organization.  The award honors student-athletes who demonstrate exemplary CHARACTER, COURAGE, CONTRIBUTION and COMMITMENT as members of their collegiate football teams. These same traits were immortalized in the blockbuster film “RUDY” in 27 seconds and against all odds on a gridiron in South Bend, Indiana, enabling Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger to carve his name into college football lore.

We're really not making this up. It's cool to see our players in line for postseason accolades, especially in light of last season, but given that either A) Bruggeman wins a totally worthless award, or B) he loses it to someone else; we'd really prefer that it never existed in the first place.
