Brett Hundley appears on second Sports Illustrated cover in three weeks

Another week, another Sports Illustrated cover. Brett Hundley landed at the front of the magazine once again, this time as part of SI’s college preview.

Two weeks ago, Hundley was featured on a regional cover teasing a Lee Jenkins’ feature story — an appearance that already had teammates calling him “SI.”

The coming issue will be the 127th time that a Bruin has appeared on a Sports Illustrated cover. Other versions of this week’s SI magazine feature Ohio State’s Braxton Miller, Oklahoma’s Trevor Knight, Alabama’s Amari Cooper, and Florida State’s Jameis Winston.

Online sportsbook also released odds for various college football stats this morning. Brett Hundley’s over/under stat line looks quite reasonable: 3019.5 passing yards, 604.5 rushing yards, and 33.5 combined passing and rushing touchdowns.

As a redshirt sophomore last season, Hundley passed for 3071 yards, rushed for 748, and scored 35 touchdowns — including 11 on the ground.

      We have cursed the curse!

    According to top scholars from the Collegiate Athletic Superstition Research Institute, a dual-appearance on the cover of SI within a 21-day span does not foster a curse, but instead guarantees a great streak of luck until another isolated appearance on said cover comes to fruition.

    In other words, we are fine until December, when Hundley will once again appear on the cover of SI, hoisting up the Heisman Trophy after winning the Pac12 Championship, going 13-0, and earning us a spot in the 4-team playoff. It is then we will face the curse of the SI cover in full force, as we get blown out by Alabama in the Rose Bowl.

    UNLESS, we can re-appear on SI within 21-days of the the December issue, thus reversing the curse again and welcoming another string of good luck, which will carry over into basketball season, where we will see our Bruins go 36-0 into the NCAA tournament, winning another 6 in a row to hang #12 in Pauley Pavilion, resurrecting a struggling basketball program.
