Tim Tebow

Someone Explain Tim Tebow to Me

without comments

Tim Tebow is a conundrum, that’s for sure. He had seven or eight plays yesterday that were amazing. Against perhaps the best defense in the league.

Then, for the rest of the game, he looked approximately the way I would have out there.

But the seven or eight plays were enough to get the Denver Broncos the victory. I can’t explain it.

DJ Gallo over at ESPN looks at Eight Theories of Tim Tebow.…

Colt McCoy a Heisman Finalist

without comments

For the second year, Texas Longhorn quarterback Colt McCoy has been named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy. Other finalists include:

  • Tim Tebow, QB, Florida Gators
  • Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama Crimson Tide
  • Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford Cardinal
  • Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska Cornhuskers

Even after McCoy’s less than Heisman-worthy performance Saturday night, I like his odds of winning. Many of the votes were probably cast prior to the Big 12 Championship against Nebraska, when his stellar game against Texas A&M was still front of mind.

Texas versus Texas A&M Thoughts & Pictures

without comments

Order was restored to the universe Thursday evening, with Texas defeating Texas A&M by the largest margin of victory in the series since the 19th century, Mack Brown getting his 200th career win, and the Longhorns taking sole possession of the record for the second most winning program in NCAA football.

Was it enough to hold off Oklahoma in the BCS chase? Maybe. Maybe not. It was a impressive victory, and Mack Brown was able to maintain his classiness by calling off the dogs early in the fourth quarter. From here, we just have to let the chips fall where they may.
