    Some Background on the Rimington Trophy

    Not being as familiar with the Rimington Trophy as other awards, I did a little research. Winner is announced Thursday, Dec 6.

    http://www.rimingtontrophy.com/

    The winner of the Rimington Trophy is selected by determining the consensus All-American center pick from four existing All-America teams.

    While more than a dozen All-America teams are selected annually, the Rimington Trophy committee uses these four prestigious teams to determine a winner:


    *American Football Coaches Association (AFCA)
    *Walter Camp Foundation (WCF)
    *Sporting News (SN)
    *Football Writers Association of America (FWAA)

    Also, they recognize the winner during pre-game at the BCS Championship Game....so CNS should go ahead and plan on Barrett being distracted a bit during normal pre-game warmups!!

    Well, Barrett has to be named an AA by the other three because AFCA did not vote him one.
