I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
Dallas most underachieving team in history?
Manningham and NYG WRs playing well.

Part one is missing the first 90 seconds.
The Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award semifinalists were announced today. There are 16 semifinalists, and DRob is among them.
The Big Ten represents one-fourth of the list, and at least two more signal callers have legitimate gripes at being left off.
Here are the selections:
- Michigan State junior Kirk Cousins
- Ohio State junior Terrelle Pryor
- Michigan sophomore Denard Robinson
- Iowa senior Ricky Stanzi
All four players are deserving, and Stanzi is one of only four repeat semifinalists from 2009. The Big Ten and Big 12 lead all conferences with four candidates apiece.
Nice recognition for a first year starter like DRob.
FWIW, my brother who goes to Renaissance told me that a number of football players told him that the entire football coaching staff has been fired after another losing season. Journalism teacher confirmed it today to the kids on newspaper staff and they're running the story tomorrow in the school paper. Coach Watts always got so little out of lots of talent, and it amazes me it took this long.
I don't know what kind of impact this has on future recruits from Renaissance, but no longer having an irrational, grudge-holding coaching staff has to help. Chris Norman, Dana Dixon, Mylan Hicks are all current Spartans from Renaissance, and obviously Lawrence Thomas is headed there next year. Renaissance did send one player (Derek Knight) to Rich Rodriguez at West Virginia, but not since Carson Butler and Andre Criswell has a Phoenix played for Michigan.
