h/t to our friend cowboy in the UT Tailgaters Batcave for uncovering this post from SEC land:
• Tim Tebow won the 2007 Heisman Trophy. Sam Bradford won it in 2008. Both are still playing college football. Neither will win the 2009 Heisman. Colt McCoy will.
• The national championship game will be staged in Pasadena. One of the qualifiers will enter unbeaten and ranked No. 1 and hugely favored to claim a second consecutive BCS title. Yes, this is beginning to sound like January 2006 all over again, and here’s where it gets eerie. Because …
• The team awaiting this colossus will again be Texas, which will again be undefeated itself and which will again be afforded little chance. And again the Longhorns will win a game for the ages, with their quarterback (McCoy this time, channeling Vince Young) outplaying the other team’s star (Tebow in this case; in 2006 the bigger names were Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart of Southern Cal). The final score will again be 41-38. I apologize for not being more specific.
I'm sure Colt just wants to win 'em all. Still, I'm rooting for him to take home some nice hardware as a result of winning them all. Like most, a few years back I assumed he was a scout team quarterback and was really lamenting the Perriloux situation on all levels. Amazing what this kid and his coaches have achieved.
Had we pulled that Tech (f dedfischer) game out, he's holding that trophy and facing off against The Tebow.
That said I don't for a second think that this nation's sports writing Illuminati will hesitate to award The Tebow the Heisman for a second time. He's anointed. He's also a hell of a good college football player. The fact that he cries at press conferences like Bernie Bernbaum helps too.
Anyway, a bit of football talk in the midst of Horns hardball heroics. f Chooky for being so indolent.
