It don’t come easy, you know it don’t come easy…

According to certain college football connoisseurs, this resume belongs to one of the 75 best players in the country:

He completed 138 of 245 passes for 1,254 yards with seven touchdowns and six interceptions in his rookie season.

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen:  Jimmy Clausen has been named to the 2008 Maxwell Award Watch List.

In case your memory needs refreshing, here’s a taste of the stuff that legends are made from.

Don’t forget, that’s all a part of this stellar performance: “Clausen ranks second on Notre Dame’s freshman quarterback single-season lists for completions, attempts, yards and completion percentage.” Jimmy, you did a heckuva job.

The sad thing is, if Notre Dame goes to a bowl game this year, he’s a lock to be a preseason Heisman favorite in ’09.

    Another thing that will be a lock if ND does go bowling this year will be the Charlie Weiss love fest. Get ready because they have 6 winnable games on their schedule. Not saying it’s gonna happen but it’s a real possibility this year.


  2. The schedule is definitely ND’s friend this year.

    Jimmy Clausen may be good, but he’s no Ron Powlus. Even Beano Cook says Jimmy’s only a lock for one Heisman.


  4. Colt Brennan, who gave you a Notre Dame uniform!?!?

    …..performing in true Clausen fashion. He will suck. It’s in his genes.
