Otto's Army Wants YOU...To Vote Them Best Student Section In The Nation

We can talk about football games some other time but when it comes to basketball, the Carrier Dome is one of the most inhospitable college stadiums in the nation. Yes, Pat Forde, I swear it is.

And a big part of that is Otto's Army, which has grown from the ashes of student sections past to become a dominant force in the Student Cheering Arts.

We all think they're the best student section in the country but now it's time to put our money where our orange is. Otto’s Army student section has been nominated for the Naismith Student Section of the Year, which honors exactly what you think it honors.

By visiting www.facebook.com/ILoveCollegeHoops, Syracuse fans can vote for the Orange as SU looks to defeat more than 80 schools that submitted a nomination. The Naismith Student Section of the Year Award, which is presented through a partnership of The Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC), a division of IMG College, and the Atlanta Tipoff Club, administrators of the Naismith Awards, is dedicated to celebrating fans that love college hoops and provide support to their college basketball team with devotion and passion.

Just like student-athletes, the student section will do all the hard work while the university gets the spoils. The winning student section will receive bragging rights while the winning school will receive $5,000 for its athletic association.

FYI, in case you needed extra incentive to vote, Georgetown, Villanova, Pitt, Providence, Boston College, Louisville and Rutgers are all up for the award as well.

Not on my watch, people. Not on my God damn watch.

UConn and Notre Dame are not amongst the award nominees. Draw your conclusions at will.

The Naismith Student Section of the Year Award will be determined through two voting rounds combined with scores from the way-too-fancily-named "Naismith Awards Board of Selectors," who review criteria such as the student section’s name and attendance, as well as photos, video, and a writing submission.

Go vote already!
