It's Christmas in March
Let's look at some facts here:
After having a steady but vastly overrated offensive leader graduate last year, your QB of the future left to play somewhere else...or join a boy band or whatever else Harrison Beck was going to do. Anyhow, in your moment of despair, a QB who actually had moderate credentials fell out of the sky and into your lap. (Are you with me so far) People are now talking Heisman in between hits of acid and forwarding tracks of their favorite Cyprus Hill CD. People who are normally completely irrational and without reason are even more completely irrational and without reason. Fans on the radio are demanding a BCS game, 11 wins or more....all because a QB fell from the sky and landed in Lincoln.
Have you ever heard the phrase, "If something is too good to be true, it probably is" ?
Do you think there might be a reason why this guy's teammates didn't want him to lead their team? Have you ever thought of the possibility that something isn't quite normal for a college football team to vote on a demotion for a QB that has started for a few years and put up some good numbers? Do you think it's safe to put your entire program's future on the shoulders of a guy who would quit on his teammates just a few weeks before the season?
What J.C. did yesterday happens all the time. Kids do stupid stuff, act like assholes and throw temper tantrums because some chick pulled into a parking spot he wanted...probably has happened 10 times since I started typing this.
So why is it a big deal?
It's a big deal, because it's all a part of a pattern. It's a big deal, because this is EXACTLY the reason he got demoted at Arizona State. It's a big deal because if his temper gets him into enough trouble that he would somehow get arrested or kicked off the team (yeah, Callahan would do that), then Joey Ganz is your quarterback...with USC, Wake and Texas on the schedule. Good freaking luck with that.
So let's do a quick review after the first 3 or 4 days of spring ball:
- Your best Wide Receiver came to camp so fat that he not only was asked to move to Tight End, but he has also taken up bowling. And we all know how fit bowlers are.
- Your only good running back was rushed to the hospital due to a mystery ailment that is rumored to be either drug or emotionally related. It may have been nothing...I don't know...but starting running backs being on the brink of death is not a good thing.
- Your starting all-world QB has a run-in with the police after going apeshit and threatening a GIRL.
Did I miss anything?
This is why I do what I do. Without me, you all would band together, circle the wagons and not only mock an altercation that involved the police, but actually go after the girl in the car who took his spot. You may think this isn't a big deal, and the incident itself is not. But when you have a guy who is the second coming of God, when you have a guy who has been labeled a cancer before, when you have a guy who has already been seen screaming at teammates...I'm guessing this isn't anything to chuckle about.
Oh, and for those of you thinking, "Boy, this must be like Christmas for you"...I give you something even better. Not every day you have an ex-husker get busted for improper relations with a child. Props to this story getting swept under the rug and congratulations to Husker fans for cheering on true scumbags like this.
(LATE EDIT - For those of you who think I'm making light of the situation, save your fucking breath. The "Christmas in March" theme has to do with Keller making an ass of himself, and not some sick fuck going to prison who used to play for your team. I'm simply stating a fact that was reported. I'd be less worried about me, and more worried how Tom Osborne found this guy. If I'm "Making light" of anything, it's the fact that the local media is completely ignoring this story)
