Next Stop, Field Goal Return Team

Tim Tebow is repping with the punt team:

Tebow also got reps on the punt team, where the Jets plan to use him as the personal protector, and he seems fine there, to the extent that you can tell anything about a guy’s ability to be a personal protector on the punt team when they’re practicing in shorts in May.

It’s not hard to see where the Jets are going with this, but it still harkens me back to my high school days on the field goal return team.

SEC’s Mount Rushmore

The Senator continues Chris Low’s discussion of the SEC”s Mount Rushmore:

I agree with those three choices.  But who do you pick for the fourth?  Bo Jackson?  The GPOOE™?  Archie or Peyton Manning?  Nick Saban?  (Okay, on that last one, I keed, I keed.)

I agree with Blutarsky on Bryant and Walker, but I think a good case could be made that Spurrier doesn’t.

Sure, he’s won six SEC titles and a national championship, but Gen. Robery Neyland won four SEC titles, two Southern Conference titles and four national championships.  Heck, he even has a stadium named after him.  Also, Urban Meyer has won more national titles than Spurrier.

Jackson?  Nah.  He is iconic for folks growing up in the 80s, but statistically, he’s just not close to the mountain.  His teams only won one conference title and no national titles.  A better choice would be Tim Tebow.

I’m not exactly a Tebow fan, but his teams did win two conference titles and two national titles and he won a Heisman Trophy.  In short, he’s the greatest player of our era.
