Linking Laconically is being watched

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

Although Fourth of July weekend just ended, football is starting to feel closer and closer. Summer is great and all, especially after a brutal winter, but I still can't help but long for football Saturdays (and a Friday). One sign of the season approaching is the release of official award watch lists, and after many of the Spartans made a name for themselves last year, they're getting much-deserved preseason love heading into 2014.
