There's no denying, the Most Hated Player Award should be named after long-time Miner nemesis Danny Ainge.

Now that the door is shut on the C-USA Regular Season, I think it's time to give out some end-of-the year C-USA Awards.  I thought it would be a good idea to get some community input on what the categories would be.  Then, starting after the C-USA Tournament, we can vote on one Rushie a day.   Please feel free to come up with new categories and to nominate players for any of the  categories you come up with or that I have listed here. 

I'll probably choose the best 5-6 categories based on the responses I get. I will do a write up each day stating each player's, coaches, or teams arguments for the award, and the community will select a winner via poll.

Here is a list of some of the award categories I have so far.

1.  The Mark McCall Award (Best Dunker)

2.   Best C-USA Game

3.  The Bears Award for the Best League Coach

4.  The Danny Ainge Award (Most Hated Player)

5.  The Bad News Barnes Award (Best league post player)

6.  Team Weaksauce Award (goes to the team with the worst non-conference schedule)

6.  Best C-USA Play

7.  The Hardaway Award (Best league guard)

8.  The Best Glue-Guy Award (best player who doesn't score a lot, but does everything else)

9.  The Culpepper Award (Best individual dunk)
