    You gotta love Espn. As I was driving home from work, I was listening to them on the radio. They cut to a sponsors/commercial break. During the break, one of the commercials was promoting the BCS championship game. Not verbatim but it went something like this: two powerhouse teams collide in the BCS championship game. "Will it be Auburn with their high powered offense, or FSU and their hiesman WINNING qb?" They're already promoting him as the winner.
    Now I know he will probably win it, but I just thought that was a little weak on their part. At least wait 'till the after this Saturday. I mean, the big game isn't for another freaking month. Lol if it wasn't for van pelt, I wouldn't listen to Espn radio at all. Mike and Mike is decent, but Golic rubs me the wrong way. And Colin is so full of himself it's painful.

    I get that. The other characters they bring onto the show are what make it interesting. Mike and Mike themselves are a pair of stereotypes in the flesh, the metrosexual fanboy and the dumb ex-jock. Golic isn't really dumb, but he strikes me as someone who considers it a failure to have to think his way out of anything.

    Winston has it made unless one of the other invitees gets accused of rape in the next 24 hours. If that happens, it could split the vote and give the Heisman to someone not accused of rape.

    Put Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame already. He was never accused of hurting anybody, Bud Harrelson notwithstanding.

    A. J. McCarron won the Maxwell award. Some are surprised that Winston didn't.

    If stiffarmtrophy.com is correct, Winston's winning total will rank him among the top-three winners of all time. They're projecting right at 90%, and the top two winners got just over 91%.

    Perhaps he will give it a ride around Tally on the back of his scooter.
