These Are My 2010 College Football Confessions

So there is an EDSBS Confessional post up, and it is chockablock with schadenfreude, chagrin, and gleeful wishes for bon vivant BMOCs in the mold of Rex Grossman, as it should be. You can easily lose an hour over there.

It’s a brilliant concept—what better way to celebrate the slightly terrifying pride and passion most college football fans have than by asking them to flip it and examine their shame?—and I was happy to be a part of it in 2008. (Look, an outdated nom de blog!) I started writing out a comment there, got about 300 words deep, and realized it made more sense to write something here, at this blog that I have and sometimes write on, than to bury all of those thoughts in the EDSBS comments. (Sorry, Jim Bankoff/Chris Mottram!)

And that’s why, after the jump, you get to read my College Football Confessions for 2010. Continue reading

Joakim Noah on Tim Tebow: “He Could Play Anything He Wants”

He knows what being the center of attention is.

He knows what being the center of attention is.

I’ll admit that though Tim Tebow is probably the best land-based athlete the University of Florida has had this decade (I see you, Ryan Lochte), my favorite is still Joakim Noah, who made up in height, boundless happiness, and purported capacity for free thought for what his reign lacked in length, relative to the Tebowverlord.

(What that has to with Noah being a Tebow fan, and a huge one, I don’t know. But I needed to say it.) Continue reading

Vengeance for Before, Cheers for Now

I read this, on Tim Tebow, in Bruce Feldman’s always-a-must-read Sunday notes:

He also now has 56 rushing touchdowns in his career, three behind Eric Crouch for the FBS record among quarterbacks.

It got me thinking.

The Fog Poll: September 24th, 2009

I’m calling this the Fog Poll because it’s a Faux Blog Poll, and in no way affiliated with the genuine article. Considering how wrong it will no doubt be, I could also call it the Flog Poll. It will probably not run on Thursdays going forward. Please, feel free to leave arguments and opinions in the comments.

First, the methodology. Continue reading
