The 15-7-0 is Big Ten bound too…unless someone else offers even more money

The 15-7-0 is Big Ten bound too…unless someone else offers even more money

As always, this week’s 15-7-0 is brought to you by Roofing By Elite. Visit them at roofingbyelite.com. We make 15 observations about football that are ELITE, 7 that are “not so ELITE” and one “zero” who deserves to sleep on the roof from outside of football.

(As a reminder, we don’t do Baltimore Ravens game analysis here. We do PLENTY of that elsewhere. This is about the rest of the world of football.)

Here we go.

“The Elite 15″…

1. Johnny Manziel is going to win the Heisman Trophy. If only someone had been able to warn you that was going to happe….oh wait!

But that doesn’t explain why Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin let Johnny Football try an extra point. NOTHING will ever explain that…

Elsewhere in the SEC, Les Miles did this…

2. Quick. Name two receivers in the NFL right now that are DEFINITELY better than AJ Green.

I almost refuse to believe this was real…

Also, good luck stopping Jermaine Gresham…

Here’s Matt Cassel hilariously rushing downfield to spike the ball despite the fact the clock wasn’t moving…

Also…this is tragic…and hilarious?

3. Of course, one of those that MIGHT still be better than Green is Andre Johnson.

Exhibit A…

The Ravens REALLY liked Jags receiver Cecil Shorts III in the draft. I’m understanding why more and more…

Also, Danieal Manning is NOT going to want to see this again…

And Paul Posluszny’s bloody face is excellent…

4. While your team is busy worrying about their conference, Notre Dame is busy playing for a national championship.

Hate the Irish but love Manti Te’o? You’re just like the rest of the country, Steve. This moment in South Bend Saturday was pretty flipping awesome…

No Matt Barkley for USC in Notre Dame’s season finale. They’ll see you in Miami.

5. I’m happy Navy won Saturday and all, but I’m INFURIATED a visit from Texas State didn’t include Kathy Ireland.

Which would have been SO much better…

Unfortunately I didn’t see the Navy motivational video from this week posted anywhere. But I did see AWESOME new helmets…

    –While I’m terribly biased on grading helmets when using my beloved Miami Dolphins helmet as my standard bearer, I must say that Naval Academy helmet was a thing of pure beauty.

    –That underhanded throw from Josh Freeman was insane…but I wonder if he can throw a ball through the uprights from 50 yards out while on his knees?

    –You should hire those 3 kids to both write and perform your new theme song for The Reality Check…them not butchering “Hey, Jude” was stunning.

    –Lastly, my heartfelt thanks to you (my little brother) and to Ryan for the great show of support Friday evening…it was much appreciated :-)

    I’ll be in a much better “donation” position this time next month so keep me posted on what you may need from me as we approach Christmas.

  2. Kerry from Brooklyn Park Says:

    Towson absolutely deserved to be in the playoffs! I think Towson is the best college team in the state. Also Tavon Austin should be in the running for the Heisman trophy. He has had an incredible year topped off by that performance against Oklahoma. Our local paper should be making a big deal about him; but they are not. Possibly the best football player to ever come out of Baltimore. Future NFL first round pick!

    (Edit from Glenn: Austin’s day Saturday was simply unreal. He got married in the Heisman race early by his own teammate Geno Smith and unfortunately their record will probably keep him out of the conversation.)
