Waiting For The Reesurrection: Week Two Picks
Reason No. 475 Why I Love The Internet: ESPN Insider’s “Heisman Predictor” in which Notre Dame’s Tommy Rees was listed ahead of Georgia’s Todd Gurley and South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney, and tied with Oregon’s Marcus Mariota after Week One. Articles like this are only possible on a weirdish Venn diagram at the intersection of “Manufactured Metrics”, “Search Engine Optimization”, and “Embarrassing Overreactions”. Even Rees had to be appalled. To Rees’ credit, his 346-yard, three touchdown performance in a 28-6 win over Temple was certainly worthy of something.

Click Chorus: July 18, 2011
Today’s Chorus is brought to you by Miami attendee and Curb You Enthusiasm mainstay Jeff Garlin. Here’s to hoping that, at one point, Garlin yelled out, “IT’S ALL ABOUT DA U!” ***** • Former Georgia coach Jim Donnan is accused of profiting off of a Ponzi scheme. I, I, I just have nothing. • CBS’s Brett McMurphy thinks that if USF is FOR REALZ about succeeding in college football they need to leave Raymond James Stadium. For. Ev. Er. • Everybody, this is Russell Wilson … Russell, this is everybody. Hurray! • Is Cal coach Jeff Tedford going and making things . . .
