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.

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.
