Oregon State's men's basketball team lost by 11 last night to the Wildcats. See my accounts here.

The CFB Blog Award nominations were rolled out Wednesday on five different blogs. The list:

*Part One :: MGoBlog
*Part Two :: BON
*Part Three :: EDSBS
*Part Four :: DawgSports
*Part Five :: Rocky Top Talk

Building the Dam had the honor of being nominated for Best Pac-10 Blog.

I casted my final BlogPoll ballot as you know, and upon Brian's tabulations, was the recipient of the Coulter/Krugman Award, given to the blogger that ranks his or her team the higest above the average. As Brian descrobes:

Next we have the Coulter/Krugman Award and the Straight Bangin' Award, which are again different sides of the same coin. The CKA and SBA go to the blogs with the highest and lowest bias rating, respectively. Bias rating is calculated by subtracting the blogger's vote for his own team from the poll-wide average. A high number indicates you are shameless homer. A low number indicates that you suffer from an abusive relationship with your football team.

Brian then goes on to say:

The CK Award goes to Oregon State's Building The Dam for shoving the Beavers in... uh. For placing the Beavers #15 on his ballot.

In defense of myself:

Speaking of Polling, the AP and Coaches Polls have been released. The Beavers finished in the Top 25 in both polls for the first time probably since 2001. Here are both the AP and Coaches Polls. For a more in depth version, go here.
