Tell me you don’t get a chuckle out of this…
Maybe they can put Jimmy in charge of the team’s transportation.
Honestly, the only thing surprising about this was to discover that Jimmy Clausen is still occupying space on a NFL roster.
Gee, I wonder how this could have happened.
… As he prepared for this week’s NFL draft, (Jimmy) Clausen faced far more criticism about his attitude and perceived arrogance than he did his ability to lead an NFL team.
By most accounts, Clausen is the second-ranked quarterback behind Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford and most likely a first-round pick. But the perception that he is too cocky has dogged Clausen and raised doubt within league circles about whether he can become a franchise-type quarterback.
Well, there’s this.
On the day he announced he was going to play quarterback at Notre Dame, Jimmy Clausen marked the occasion by arriving at the College Football Hall of Fame in a Hummer limo. Then he crowed about winning multiple national championships.
A stunt like that never goes over well in the court of public opinion, and Clausen still is paying the price.
Poor Master James.
He’s proving himself to be a master of understatement, though: “I struggled my first year…” Yeah, “struggled”, that’s a good description.
Hopefully, he and Charlie Weis can hook up again one day. I’m just sorry that college football has entered its post-Clausen era.
The sun will rise, Georgia is only a seven point underdog against Tech (huh?) and breakfast is served.
Something to snack on while you’re putting on your game face…
Lots of goodies to pick from today:
The WLOCP draws nigh, but the buffet line is still open.
Here we go…
Want to add a reason to re-examine the football future? Of course you do. Start here:
Check out these numbers, from Quarterback A and Quarterback B.
Quarterback A: 406 of 685 (59.3 percent), 4,426 Yds, 32 TDs, 23 INTs
Quarterback B: 329 of 604 (54.5 percent), 4,272 Yds, 26 TDs, 23 INTs
Quarterback A — with the more impressive totals — is Jimmy Clausen of Notre Dame.
I don’t know about you, but I saw this one coming a mile away.
The No. 1 pick in April’s NFL Draft, Georgia’s Matthew Stafford.
And it’s a fair comparison, because
… Clausen’s development is as real as Stafford’s when you consider surrounding talent compared to strength of schedule…
Uh hunh. All that surrounding talent. Georgia placed a whopping two players on the 2007 first team All-SEC football team, Moreno and Velasco. That talent gap must come as a complete shock to Tom Lemming.
Now Sprow may be on to something when he mentions strength of schedule. Young Master James faced exactly one top twenty team last season. His passer rating in that contest? A magnificent 47.48.
Throw in the fact that Georgia won twice as many games in Stafford’s first two years as did Notre Dame in Clausen’s, which means Jimmy was likely forced into a lot more passing situations than was Staff, and you’re not left with a whole lot to gleam from those stats.
Of course, I could be completely wrong about this. Clausen, under the tutelage of the man with the Super Bowl rings, could be poised to surpass all of Stafford’s accomplishments as a junior (given Notre Dame’s schedule, that’s not as preposterous as it sounds) and then go on to sign the most lucrative rookie contract in the history of the NFL. After all, the numbers don’t lie, right?
More coffee, hon?
I thought I should share this with everyone. It’s from my stats page at a few minutes before 7 PM today.

“Jimmy Clausen Nude Photos”? Seriously?
I am one grossed out human being right now. And a little puzzled – what on this site draws up as a hit to a search request like that?
On the plus side, at least nobody’s looking for naked pics of his coach here.
