We're back with another installment of the Lowsman Watch. We are dedicated to uncovering the worst player in the nation by the end of the year. Unlike the national polls, we realize that the first few weeks should be extremely fluid for any ranking, so you won't see any of the original five on this list. Not even Michael Henig who threw six interceptions in week one, but he bounced back to go 20/31, 223 yards, 1 TD, and ONLY 1 INT. Good for him, but sadly it was against Tulane, so we will surely see him again, but we aren't here to talk about the past. Let's look at this week's rankings:
1) Sean Glennon, QB, Virginia Tech: 24/33, 261 yards, 1 TD, INTs
Just as there is a spot on our Heisman Watch for any QB playing against
I don't want to think about transferring right now, it’s not a good thought. I've had a good time in four years here. I don't want to leave here. But I feel like I'm good enough to play on any team in this country...
It's just unfortunate that I'm put in a position where, because my legs don't move as fast as Tyrod's, I'm not going to be playing...
Not to say I'll make it, but I feel like I have a shot at the next level...
I don't want to blame anything on anybody. That's the last thing I want to do, is say I'm not playing because of the line...
So, in summary, Glennon can play on any other team in the country (Brian Brohm, WATCH OUT), he’s not starting because Tyrod Taylor is faster (definitely not because he’s more accurate than 2/16), he’s got a shot at the NFL (maybe the Browns), he refuses to blame his performance on anyone else (except his O-line), and he’s a complete douche (I read between the lines). I absolutely cannot stand this guy.
2) Harrison Beck, QB,
Donald Driver gets hard just watching NC State play, no one has ever thrown for more garbage yards in history, not even Favre, than Harrison Beck did in the Wolfpack’s game against
3) Cody Hawkins, QB,
Here at Log’s Blog there is nothing we hate more than Sean Glennon, but a close second would be nepotism which makes this an obvious pick. Hawkins doesn’t have the interceptions or fumbles to match up with some people on this list, but I think he fits right in. Saturday night, against
4) Mike Turkovich, LG, Notre Dame: Sucked all year
5) Delbert Alvarado, K,
First of all, Delbert is an African-American kicker, so it’s pretty tough for me to write about him; it’s like criticizing the Yellow-billed Cuckoo Bird of being weird looking; they're both endangered species and you can't criticize what you don't know, but "can't" was erased from my vocabulary in 3rd grade gym class so I'll try. Delbert’s performance bears mention because it was so atrocious. I had a small wager on the South Florida, which I placed legally in
6) Todd Boeckman, QB, AN
Ever wonder what would happen if Michael Henig was quarterback of
7) Deon Palmer, S,
8) Devin Tyler, LT,
I don’t get too upset about the things I write about these young athletes, I don’t have much in the way of a conscience, but Devin’s situation really struck a cord. I mean, I can really put myself in his shoes. Devin was ranked as the 451st defensive lineman in the country coming out of high school, and decided to go to
9) Lyle Moevao, QB,
Moevao is part of a quarterback by committee situation along with Sean Canfield at OSU. As the old adage says, “if you have two quarterbacks, you don’t have a quarterback,” this situation is the epitome of that saying. Against
I’m not going to pile on here, after watching the Mgoblog’s slow spiral into oblivion the last two weeks, I don’t think they need anymore. As a Notre Dame fan, I know exactly how they feel, and we all handle these situations differently. I unleash my rage by putting my team’s players on this list (see: Turkovich, Mike); they post pictures of kittens and play emo music, but at the end of the day, our teams are still playing on ABC, Go Irish!!!
