Because it’s tradition, dammit.

NCAA Football: North Carolina State at Louisville Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Look, I know that it’s been a bit of an ... uneven? ... year, but tradition is tradition, and there are still a number of people out there worthy of being the 2017 Card Chronicle Person of the Year.

Please remember that the person of the year does not have to be an actual person ("No Pants" was once a finalist). This isn't Sports Illustrated, it's much, much more serious.

This year's winner will join that elitest of elite Derby City fraternities, which includes:

2007 - Tom Jurich
2008 - David Padgett
2009 - Vacant (we forgot to do it)
2010 - Charlie Strong
2011 - Charlie Strong and Preston Knowles (tie)
2012 - Tom Jurich
2013 - Teddy Bridgewater
2014 - Russ Smith
2015 - Kelsi Worrell
2016 - Lamar Jackson

We’ll take nominations today and then do the vote with the finalists after the New Year. I hope everyone’s having a great holiday.
