SRI Interview - Q: It’s gotta be difficult when basically your fan base is
rooting against you guys? They basically want to see you lose every
game, so you can get the kid, Andrew Luck, out of Stanford. That’s gotta
be a little disheartening. Isn’t it?
A: “It’s sick actually. I can’t even fathom those thoughts of those
people that conjure up that stuff. They have never played sports and
pretty much aren’t really our loyal fans. I can’t really put any weight
into that and I know the players don’t listen to it. It’s a shame, but
people are going to talk and we just have to block that out.”
I would actually choose to call these fans the most loyal and educated fans. The smart fans realize how much you suck and want the FUTURE to be a little brighter. You are out of the playoffs at this point and all they have to look forward to is next year.
Anyone that would rather you win 2 games than 1 game and lose out on the best QB prospect in decades would be the worst
BEST OF MAXIM
For the fourth straight week Stanford's Andrew Luck is on top of the Bloguin Heisman Poll that I am hosting over at Crystal Ball Run. Make sure you head over and see the complete breakdown of Week Eight of the Bloguin Heisman Poll. As we've done the last few weeks I figured I would share how the voters from our site voted in the poll. It sould be noted that Pete sent me an...
The NFL is a Quarterback driven league where one man can make or break your team. We've seen an obvious example this year with how the Indianapolis Colts have performed without Peyton Manning. The same arguement can be made for college football and there is no doubt that the QB is the most important position on the field. This year the majority of the focus in college has gone...
Dolphins have made another move towards landing Andrew Luck. Today they put Sage Rosenfels on the IR and signed JP Losman. This move clearly helps the Dolphins as now they are just one big hit away from having Losman as their starting QB.
Move after move, the Dolphins organization has made really would make you think they are trying to land the first pick of the NFL draft next year...
In a move that could prove unpopular with his coach, San Francisco 49ers nose tackle Ricky Jean Francois said Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck's sky-high NFL potential will drop if he has to play a Southeastern Conference defense in a bowl game.
Last Saturday night was not a nightmare. It really happened. Stanford actually ran for over 400 yards and barely needed Andrew Luck to absolutely boat-race the Huskies out of Palo Alto with a 65-21 drubbing. But with a win on Saturday night against Arizona, the Huskies can turn last weekend’s farce into just a loss.
Halfway through the season and Stanford QB supreme/BMOC Andrew Luck is seeing his draft stock remain just as high as it was last spring. He’s told the media how dumb he believes the “suck for Luck” campaign is. Are NFL teams are really even intentionally sucking in order to take the most sought after signal caller in college football?.
Maybe. We explored this concept back...

Russell Wilson had the chance to make a big impact with a nationally televised game against a ranked foe Saturday, but unable to bring his team to victory, Wilson sees his national Heisman support stumble slightly.
Trent Richardson is there to pick up some of the support, seeing a widespread increase in his standing around the country.
With Andrew Luck holding steady atop many of...
Just when you thought college football was becoming predictable a wild Saturday night changed everything. Michigan State stunned unbeaten Wisconsin with a last second prayer and Texas Tech shocked the Sooners in Norman. How would that affect the Heisman race? Wisconsin's Russell Wilson was second place in last weeks poll and trailed leader Andrew Luck by a very slim margin...
