Tebow always gets two, can he on Saturday?

December 12, 2008
Does he do anything poorly?

You can be jealous, Timmy-boy always takes home two.  There was no difference on Thursday night at the 2008 College Football Awards.  Tebow won his second consecutive Maxwell Award.  Only one other player in college football history can stake that claim, Johnny Lattner.  That doesn’t mean anything to us, were 24, so basically Tebow is the first to accomplish this.  If he hasn’t made you throw up yet, being so perfect, Timmy was also the recipient of the Disney Spirit Award.

Logic would suggest that the best all-around college football player, who also plays quarterback, would by default be crowned top quarterback as well…but Lee Corso fires a pencil accompanied by “Not so fast my friend!” Sam Bradford of the Oklahoma Sooners walked up to the podium for the Davey O’Brien Award, and Colt McCoy received the Walter Camp Award Player of the Year Award.

It’s an exact science this stuff.

So as it stands we have Tebow is good at everything, Bradford is the best quarterback and McCoy is the best player.

Yes, an exact science.


Heisman Trophy Football

Now all eyes turn to Saturday night at the New York Athletic club. Tebow will be going for his second consecutive Heisman Award.  Bradford and McCoy are just excited to be engulfed by Times Square.

Please buy your tissues now you proud parents.


Quickie (football) Recap 11.23: Penn St wins Big10, Big12 South gets confusing

Sam Bradford now has a strong case to win the Heisman

Sam Bradford now has a strong case for the Heisman

The Oklahoma Sooners created a three way tie for the Big 12 South with their impressive 65-21 beat down of #2 Texas Tech on Saturday night in Norman, Oklahoma. So now that Texas beat Oklahoma, Texas Tech beat Texas and Oklahoma beat Texas Tech, the water gets a little murky. Do not forget that there is still one week left in the season and all three teams don’t play “roll-overs.”

Texas will host Texas A&M in their annual Thanksgiving weekend game.

Oklahoma travels to hostile Stillwater for the Bedlam Game.

Texas Tech gets the mediocre Baylor Bears.

Everyone seems to be looking past Chase Daniels (one of Preseason favorites for Heisman) and his Tigers from Missouri, who await whichever team floats to the top of the Big 12 South. Nothing is a given.

In the Big 10, Penn State rolls on Michigan State, 49-18 in State College. Everyone gets a rose!!! When do we get rid of that? We think someone killed that whole Sports Illustrated Cover pic. With the win the Nittany Lions assured themselves a trip to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl, with a possible rematch against Oregon State and NOT Southern California; Oregon State traveled to Penn State on September 6th, 45-14 Nittany lions. If Oregon State takes care of business next week at home vs. the #24 Oregon Ducks, then they are in the Rose Bowl and USC will be in another BCS game (thank goodness, we don’t know if we can stand another Big 10 vs USC game in Pasadena for the Trojan Invitational).

I (Matt) officially am done talking about Notre Dame, I’ll quietly hang to every snap of the football in which they are involved but you will no longer need to listen to me…until they show me something (at USC next week, wouldn’t that be nice?)
