There were four "chUMp-of-the-month" awards last year, and all monthly winners are automatic qualifiers for the annual finals. Two other chUMps will be selected from the "dishonorable mention" recipients for a total of six semi-finalists. Three finalists will advance to next week, with a winner to be named next weekend.
The 2013 "chUMps-of-the-month" were:
Based on early returns, we will remove three of the "dishonorably mentioned" to leave eight candidates to be narrowed to six this weekend. The three who have been taken off the first ballot include:
- A.J. Williams, because all he did was go out drinking with a bunch of Buckeyes after a ballgame, which is similar to what Taylor Lewan did, except Lewan was punching and stomping on them while Williams was playing quarter-bounce (then driving). Williams is out because he's young and stupid, though he still qualifies as a chUMp.
- Frank Beckmann, because all he did was print an incoherent rant about some social situation that was far over his uneducated head. That's what he gets for working in a university setting without a university degree. Beckmann is out because he's old and stupid, though he is undoubtedly a chUMp.
- Lloyd Carr, because he wasn't arrested for drunk and disorderly like Gary Moeller. He just mumbled some crazy musings about retirement life or something. Carr is out because he's an old fart, and because if the UM intelligentsia can give Carr the heave-ho from coaching, we can chuck him from our contest.
