Can Pam Ward stay atop the standings as we approach the vote for Week 2 of the Pammies? (Hint: she has a decent chance. Also, her broadcast partner Dan Hawkins may be her top challenger this year.) It was a great week of exciting games all over the place, especially the insane Notre Dame-Michigan finish that showed us crappy defenses can be a lot of fun. As a reminder as to how this works, each week we’ll nominate 15-20 quotes for you to pick the best 10. The winning quote of the week will earn that person 10 points all the way down to 1 point for 10th. Remember, you can vote for your favorite five quotes. Here are your Week 2 nominees…
