A BCS for blogs?

Thanks to this post at Law Dork, I see that I have the honor of being in great company as a nominee in the 2005 Weblog Awards for Best Law Blog.  As the cliche goes, it is an honor just to be nominated.  But even more fun is nit-picking notable aspects of (and omissions from) the list of 15 nominees.

Of course, I am very proud that Law Dork (an OSU law alum) apparently has the distinction of being the youngest nominee, and also that, with the inclusion of TaxProf Blog, two members of the Law Professors Blog Network made the grade.  But Chris notes the interesting righty slant of the slate of nominees, and I also see some questionable selections.  BeldarBlog, which has been quiet for nearly two months now, garners a nomination, while all the great work recently at blogs like Concurring Opinions and Crime & Federalism and PrawfsBlawg goes unrecognized.

Seems to me we need some new nomination metric which incorporates factors like regularity of posts.  Then again, if some sort of BCS system for blogs were to include a measure of total output, Howard Bashman at How Appealing would blow us all away.
