You Didn’t Know Why

Why did John David Booty play perhaps the worst game of his career? Because he could not grip the ball properly.
“When it was about to come out, it slipped off my fingers,” Booty said. “It’s really weird. It was kind of windy out there but the ball was really slick.
If my memory serves me correctly, Matt Leinart complained after a close win at Arizona State that the heat caused the ball to become slippery and made the grip tougher. Must be a quarterback code of honor thing.
