    Andrew Luck now calling own plays at Stanford

    Just for those who still have doubts that this kids is about as sure a franchise QB you can possibly get.
    Calling his own college plays doesn't automatically translate to success in the NFL. Suck for luck is a loser mentality, not guaranteed, and just plain silly. Dolphins would be better served by getting someone who can draft talent, and drafting well with whatever picks they get. Lots of teams are good year in and year out doing just that.
    In Philbin I trust:


    • As offensive coordinator (OC) of Green Bay from 07-10, his offenses ranked in the top 10 in both total yards and scoring.
    • Green Bay has reached the playoffs in three of Philbinís four seasons as OC.
    • As OC at Harvard (97-98), the Crimson established 15 offensive records.
    • Philbin spent four seasons (90-93) at Allegheny College, highlighted by two undefeated regular seasons and an NCAA Division III national championship in 90.

Luck vs Saban's defense... oh man. That would be awesome.
    Thats one more reason the bowl system sucks. Pac-10 champ plays the Big-10 champ. Other than the NC, you never get new matchups.

    The system really blows and I agree with you. But unfortunately the almighty dollar rules all. Saw what happened in college hoops this offseason right? Pittsburgh and Syracuse bolted the Big East to the ACC. And the ONLY reason is the football money. I've all but given up trying to understand it all and who it benefits and who it doesn't. All I know is most FANS absolutely love the college basketball tournament and hate the college football BCS. Yet here we are, destroying hoops conferences so some fat cats/big wigs in suits get fatter pockets. Can you even imagine if college football adopted a format similar to March Madness? It would dwarf college hoops, the Super Bowl, the NBA finals, and the World Series. But we still don't have it, lol.

    Good for him.


    - Hall of Fame Safety Rod Woodson on Dan Marino playing in today's NFL:
    "...the best quarterback I believe is Dan Marino..."

    Truly a man amongst boys.
    but when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was "Stannis! Stannis! STANNIS!"
