I mentioned a couple weeks ago when I chose not to make either one of the Rodgers brothers my player to watch that I would not pick the opposing team’s superstar players as the player to watch, but their lesser known role players who might have an impact instead. Well, it’s week 3 and I’m already breaking my own rule, because I think this is the perfect opportunity for a “Robert Griffin isn’t football Jesus and even if he is that great, Baylor still sucks” rant. Also, I’ll stick with 2 players, and pick 1 player from their defense as well, because there is a particular player on that side of the ball whos decision making and brain power need to be question...seriously. I’ll start on the defensive side of the ball and save Robert Griffin for last…
Ahmad Dixon (Fr. S, 6’ 195)
Some may question why a true freshman safety with 5 tackles on the season would be a player to watch, especially those who don’t follow recruiting. Here’s why. According to Rivals, Ahmad, who went to
He originally committed to
Robert Griffin (QB, Soph, 6’2 220, awarded redshirt after his knee was shredded).
Is there an NCAA cover jinx yet? Let's create one...
Alright, Robert, you’re good, you’re talented, and you’re athletic. I’ll give you that. But has there ever been a player pimped harder for doing less??? Oh wait, Jake Locker. I’m not even going to insult you as a player that much, because I really do think you’re a rare talent who greatly improves your team. This is more a forum for me to rip Baylor fans and their whole mentality towards football. Yes, Robert Griffin is awesome. We get that. He’s so awesome that he ripped apart defenses as a freshman 2 years ago. He did so well that he led your team to a whopping 4-8 record. The next season, supposedly the year RGIII was going to take over college football and lead Baylor to the promised land (by that, I mean the Independence Bowl), RGIII tore his ACL in a game 3 blowout of
It’s not that I hate you, Robert Griffin, it’s just that I hate Baylor and everything that it stands for. So I really can’t wait to hear Baylor fans running around the tailgate scene Saturday running their mouths about how Robert Griffin is the next big thing and the biggest bad ass in the country and a Heisman frontrunner. Maybe you will be great one day, RGIII, and maybe Baylor will too (haha), but it won’t be Saturday at The Carter. So this message is to you, Baylor fans: get the Hell of your high horse, quit acting like you’ve accomplished something, stop touting the Briles/Griffin duo as the saving grace of the Baylor program, and DON’T TALK SHIT UNTIL YOU CAN WIN A DAMN BOWL GAME!!!!!! If that’s too much to ask, then at least keep quiet until you reach a bowl, or beat TCU at something.
That is all, Go Frogs! Next week, I try to find an SMU player to pick on, and unfortunately Bo Levi Mitchell is gunslinging elsewhere now.
