An envy and jealousy twofer!

Yessir – two posts that caught my eye and made me gnash my teeth from bitter admiration:

First, there’s Sunday Morning Quarterback‘s brilliant look at Gus Malzahn that explores the whole “the man, the myth” shtick his supporters have been bandying about from the getgo, but, even more than that, perfectly captures the “WTF are those people thinking?” mindset of those Hog fans who believe Nutt screwed last season up by not giving Malzahn his head to run his “throw the ball first and ask questions later” offensive scheme:

… But SMQ has his doubts as to how new or hot this system is actually going to be. The furor over whether it was actually employed in any sense last year, and if not, why the hell not?, has built a kind of bizarre mythology around its singular brilliance. Ten wins, and SEC West title, the school’s first Heisman finalist, and why aren’t you idiots running this incredible offense? What are we talking about here?

Then, there’s Andy Katzer, who asks the immortal question

Is Tim Tebow a real quarterback or just a moose lined up in shotgun?

I’ll never be able to look at Tebow in the same way again.

That’s a good enough line to redeem Katzer for a rather stoopid post he made a couple of weeks ago. Ego te absolvo, my son…

A few spring football stories…

No worries, mon: His freshman phenom QB may or may not be hurt, four of his predecessors won national titles at the school in their third year (and a fifth’s team went undefeated) and his starting tailback was just moved from linebacker, after being moved from tailback to linebacker last year, but Charlie Weis is cool, man.

Lou Holtz won a MNC at Notre Dame in hith third year, and ith thtill honored for hith efforth…

“They’re all right there in a wad”: Once again proving that the most popular player on the South Carolina campus is the quarterback without a rap sheet, Chris Smelley is feelin’ it.

It’s Tim Tebow’s world, the rest of us are just sharing it: “He’s never been shy. It was Chris Leak’s team, but Tebow was right there with him,” Meyer said.

For you, $19.95: In the wake of its dramatic Fiesta Bowl win, Boise State is selling anything that’s not nailed down. And for the stuff that is nailed down, make ’em an offer.

Fire this, sucka: The University of Iowa gets preemptive on certain critics’ asses.
