Props to: Men’s volleyball star Cullen Irons and his moderately awkward rapport with speechless mascot Olé.
Fingerwags to: Asst. Athletics Communications Director Matt Hurst, whose booming voice and less-than-hilarious jokes made for some interesting slideshows.
Props to: Men’s basketball’s Greg Somogyi, who somehow found a suit that fit him and classed it up a notch.
Fingerwags to: The entire event, for not honoring the Nexus with several awards.
Props to: Athletic Director Mark Massari for making the whole thing a classy endeavor.
Fingerwags to: Baseball pitcher Mike Ford for wearing flip flops. Hippie.
Props to: Swimmer Anne Marie May, whose backless dress singlehandedly emasculated the entire men’s basketball team. Bravo.
