C2C - The Final MVP Award I'm doing it a bit different this final time, I've nominated the top 12-15 players, regardless of team, that at this point I feel have played well in user games as well as CPU games and have been instrumental in leading their teams to where they are currently. In my mind, winning trumps stats, so teams with 2+ losses at this point may not have anyone represented. Also, guys who are currently injured were not considered. I will trim this down to about 8 players by the bowl games and then we can hold a final vote. If anyone feels I've missed a guy that should be here, by all means start thumping the gavel for them. 2014 MVP Candidates - mid season (stats through week 9) Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5 Column 6 Name Team Position Year Key Stats Comments Thomas Marshall Alabama WR Junior 32 catches, 671 yards, 9 TD Had 129 yards and 2 TD in loss to Nebraska and 72 yards in win vs OSU.
