Wisdom, or Twitter’s fault?
Ohio State third-string QB Cardale Jones recently tweeted, “Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain’t come to play SCHOOL classes are POINTLESS.” He wasn’t allowed to dress for the game last week, and his Twitter account was deleted. Will he be on the sideline this week? Should he be kicked off the team?
Marching toward lunacy
Former New England Patriots whiz Charlie Weis is now looking like a desperate despot at Kansas. He was mad at the student paper for an illustration last week that showed Kansas State preparing to thump little Kansas (which it did). He also gave his seniors a recent practice off – another odd approach for the coach of a 1-4 team that has beaten only South Dakota State.
Can Nunes do it on the road?
Josh Nunes was mediocre against Washington in his first road start as Stanford’s quarterback. Then, he bounced back last week against Arizona to lead the Cardinal to its winning drive. This week, he goes to Notre Dame, which has allowed just 183.2 passing yards per game.
Can Vaz do it on the road?
Stanford had questions about its QB, now Oregon State starts life without its starter, Sean Mannion, who underwent knee surgery. Cody Vaz, a fourth-year junior, will make his first college start Saturday at BYU, where it’s always tough to work.
Clowney is no joke
South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has 61/2 sacks heading into this weekend’s battle with LSU. Clowney is just a sophomore, but he is starting to be projected as a top-five pick in next spring’s NFL draft. He’ll get a national stage this weekend.todd.dybas@ thenewstribune.com
