at least it's not just us?
denard 4 heisman
Denard had a tough week, but is he still a clear-cut #1 in the Heisman race? Most of the Illegal Shift contributers think so, but we have a "non-believer".
I didn't see a post for today (you're slacking, Captain), so I'm taking the initiative to do it myself. Denard's actually gained a lot of ground recently, despite his downer game against Sparty:
To summarize the weekend of controversial diaries-Denard didn’t play so hot, why not play Tate (or Devin) like #16 did last year? Well you don’t bench the Heisman man (though we don’t endorse or even acknowledge his candidacy anymore-it makes us feel better), because our 2nd or 3rd stringers are there for a reason. Cullen Christian proved this Saturday, and he was behind James Rogers. Then we brought in another backup named T. Talbott (btw he is a frosh) who couldn’t tackle a player running a circle around him resulting in a key conversion and ultimately another touchdown.
Speaking of our D, OMG we hate them let’s switch schemes and coaches at the same time-it makes us feel better. Or alternatively everything is peachy in time, we just need to score more points on O this year. Let’s give RichRod a few more years to build a D (it takes offensive geniuses min. 5 years to build a D). His offense is sweet except against rivals lately due to our frosh/soph qbs though we don’t primarily blame them or the coaches though some of us still do blame-it makes us feel better.
God bless and (everyone please agree at least to say) Go Blue!
I found this website(http://he16man.spreadshirt.com/) through a facebook ad tonight. Based on the whole mgoshirt inventory purge of a couple weeks ago, I narced on this site to the Compliance Department with a cc to Judy Van Horn. Six minutes later (8:36 p.m. EDT), I got a personal reply from JVH.
I know, "cool story, brah." Sorry. I was just impressed with the speed and the personal touch. The only people who get responses that quick from me are old guys in black robes who hold my career in their hands.
Nestled on top of the heap, Denard sleeps soundly tonight, assured that come Saturday afternoon he will dazzle the national audience with another 500+ DenYard performance.
Note that Pryor is footnoted for his six TD's in a Tressel production of "Lets Run Up the Score on a Helpless MAC Team So That OSU Gets Some Style Points and Pryor can Pad Some Stats".
Incredible that Denard gets no love for his 12 minutes of work and 225+ QB rating performance.
