Iowa took some real grief this past week from guys like Colin Cowherd, but frankly it was well-deserved. The Iowa Hawkeyes can’t say much here – they need to start scheduling real nonconference opponents. Until they do they’ll get little respect.
It’s interesting to hear a great coach like Urban Meyer explain the intangibles needed when you’re looking for a college quarterback. Arm talent just isn’t as high on the list, and that makes sense also given the type of offense he runs.
Of course that has to change a bit in the NFL. The intangibles are just as if not more important, but the arm talent and physical skills are more important given the level of competition.
Let the Brock Osweiler overreaction begin. He had a rough game Thursday night, and he’s rightfully taking some grief. He doesn’t look like a quarterback worth the big contract he signed.
I’ve never been a huge fan, so I’m still not impressed.
Still, the NFL is a weird league these days. Teams can look great and then lay an egg like the Texans did on Thursday. So you really have to give Osweiler time to see how he develops. To be a good NFL QB, you need to bounce back from games like this. Let’s see what Bill O’Brien can do about it.
Chris Bosh has failed his physical, and it doesn’t look like he’ll be back with the Miami Heat. The situation doesn’t seem to be a threat to his overall health, but the Heat don’t want to take any chances here.
I’m not a Miami Heat fan, and frankly wasn’t a Bosh fan either as I rooted against the Big Three in Miami. But Bosh earned my respect with his inspired play and willingness to take on the role needed to win championships. He would take a lot of grief when in some games he seemed to disappear, but that was a result of the role he played. Bosh stepped up with huge shots and huge games when the Heat needed him, and they don’t win any of those championships without him.
Let’s hope regardless of what happens with his career that he’s able to manage this clotting issue for his long term health.
#10 Louisville destroyed #2 Florida State this afternoon 63-20, and quarterback Lamar Jackson put on quite a show with five touchdowns and 362 total yards. Naturally the Heisman talk dominated Twitter as many were ready to hand Jackson the trophy right now, while forgetting how Leonard Fournette seemingly had it wrapped up last season.
The other meme pumped today had many comparing Jackson to Micheal Vick, which seems like a good comparison. Vick then got into the act as well with a very gracious tweet:
