The TST Big Board, 31-35 (The Tiring)

Time to summon the will. Let's push it to 50...



Well, we've definitely hit a fatigue wall. The voting tallies were low enough that I left voting open for another day. It's to summon some strength, compatriots. Tell your friends. Tell your family. Tell that random guy on the street who when you start walking faster to catch up to him to tell him about the TST Big Board he starts walking faster and eventually he's running screaming "HELP" and you're just like "WAIT, NO. I JUST NEED YOU TO FILL MY SLOTS WITH YOUR BIG SELECTION." Definitely do that and tell him. Let's get these votes back up and see if we can get to 50 with a solid board to reference over the next two weeks.

Anyway, here was last round:


With the lower voter turnout, things obviously were much more compact. The battle among the top three was close, thought JERNIGAN could not JERNIGAN enough to maintain full JERNIGAN status. After the top three, it was kind of a glut of eight options. No real argument from me on any of the selections. The board, at this point, is heavy on random personal preference, so it's going to be wacky. I don't get this whole late-season surge by Tom Savage, but conventional wisdom is a thing. I was surprised though that Jace Amaro was so unpopular...which means Amaro is left to hold the torch of JERNIGAN moving forward. God bless ye, humble warrior.

So here's our top 30 board:

Position breakdown:

5 0 3 1 4 1 0 4 1 3 1 4 3

Nice blend of position needs and position value. Five QBs? Maybe Bradford's not as beloved as I expected...Is Van taking a toll on yall? Maybe this is as far as the QBs go.
