I Have to Say It… Who Dat?

Drew BreesJust a blurb here, but I just finished watching Super Bowl XLIV and that was a great game. It was a lot closer than the final score of 31-17 made it appear and it was great watching the New Orleans Saints keep their heads up and after the Colts jumped out to an early 10-0 lead. The Colts simply dominated the first quarter and it looked as though they might be unstoppable. But Brees and his guys stuck together and turned things around in the second quarter. They didn’t score any touchdowns, but they started moving the ball. Kicker Garret Hartley was superb when he was needed and then Brees and his offense started doing what they do.

Sean Payton was gutsy throughout the game. It didn’t always work out, but when they recovered that onside kick, I think any doubters realized the Saints could win the game. Yahoo’s NFL blogger over at The Shutdown Corner is eating his words right now after posting a hast first-half blog about Sean Payton’s vanity. (more…)

Texas Has Done This Before

This is just a blurb, but I think someone needs to point it out and I haven’t seen anyone do so. In 2005 The University of Texas’s QB, Vince Young, was a Heisman finalist. That award went to RB Reggie Bush of the University of Southern California, who Texas would soon be facing in the national championship game. Texas went on to win that game.

It’s 2009 now. The University of Texas’s QB Colt McCoy was a Heisman candidate. The Heisman was won, however, by RB Mark Ingram Jr. of Alabama. On Janurary 7, 2010 Texas will square off against Alabama in the national championship game. (more…)
