I’ve seen a lot of really stupid Brandon Weeden/age jokes, this is not one of them. h/t @ThomasMatheson

They would have…

Yeah, this is not good…

Kevin DeShazo doing big boy things.

First – don’t make this video. Second – if you make the video, don’t use papyrus font. Third – if you make the video, edit out the throw at the 38-second mark.

    Fourth: If your gonna make the vidoe leave out the part where you had to beat KANSAS in overtime. lol

    Fifth, if it does take a comeback and overtime to beat Kansas, the level of celebration in the locker room should not reach that level. Celebrating that way after beating OU the way they did, yeah, I understand that. But KU? Come on!!

      Did anyone besides me notice Les Miles’ hair in the twitter video? Maybe it’s me but it looks like he is cutting and dying his hair to look like Saban’s.

  • Q

    Are people who believe Robert Griffin III (we don’t call him RGIII here, anymore) is a better pro prospect than Weeden watching the games?

    His dreadlocks remind me of Doug E. Doug in Cool Runnings, though an excellent movie, not an excellent look, especially in 2011.

  • True story, I got into an argument (nothing crazy) with one of the Baylor marketing guys yesterday after tweeting that I’m not sure I’d be showing a 4th quarter comeback against 2 win KU as a “Heisman moment”. His response was that a highlight is a highlight, that 267yds and 4TDs in the 4th Q and OT is impressive. I reminded him that Weeden went for 288 and 5 in the first 25 minutes and took the rest of the day off. That’s what Heisman candidates do against HS teams.

    I get that you want to show highlights. And that, against good teams, RG3 doesn’t have many (they can’t just show OU and TCU over and over). But goodness, don’t show a game where he had 50 total yards before the 4th quarter against the worst team in college football.

    The twitter thing with Matt Lynch is fascinating. As I’m sure most have found out, the original offender was @mattiynch but with the ‘i’ capitalized, and now the @mattlynch is getting a lot of flack. Poor guy.
