    The preseason polls and watch lists are bad enough. Can’t we at least get one game on the books before listing our Heisman favorites.

  • ProbationU

    Barkley is so great he should get 3 Heismans…his own, the one Reggie Bush had to return and the tarnished one sitting with OJ in his cell with him.

    Fight on!


    I just hope Barkley can win as many Heismans as UCLA has! Could be tough, but definitely possible!!! HAWR-HAWR!!!

    Such a meaningless gesture, and even more meaningless is reporting on it. But then what do we expect here. This whole site is meaningless. Even bill.

    Farty fart farts. Booger and Poop.

    This blog blows.

    Don’t you EVER equivilate me to meaningless. My existence is worth far more than yours. You will agonize because of your disrespect. I am here to inform you of your place, you are beneath me and do not forget that. I live the good life.

    Nice copy and paste by the way Wolfbag.

    I am the Great Gazoo from Zaitok. You are all idiots and will look upon my accomplishments with glee and admiration. Gold and money will come my way very soon as you realize my exceptionally large brain is no match for mere human.

    read my profile and you too will be impressed:

    The Great Gazoo was exiled to Earth because he created a doomsday machine which was capable of destroying the universe with the push of a button. He insisted that he had not intended to actually use the device. Still, one has to question his judgment.

    On earth, the Great Gazoo became an acquaintance of the Flintstone family. The only people capable of seeing the Great Gazoo were Fred, Barney, and their children, because they believe in him.

    Beyond simply being a scientist, the Great Gazoo is clearly guilty of Scientism. In creating his doomsday machine, he placed scientific inquiry above all other considerations. In doing so, he demonstrated a complete lack of both logical thinking and humanity.

    The Great Gazoo clearly possessed a brilliant scientific mind. He certainly knew he was brilliant and he prided himself on his intelligence, often castigating those around him (including Fred and Barney) for their relative lack of knowledge and intelligence.

    But to what ends did the Great Gazoo focus his capabilities? Few characters in any fictional universe have ever demonstrated such destructive inventive potential. But The Great Gazoo’s people did not herald him as a genius. They exiled him from their world entirely.

    The Great Gazoo claimed to have created the doomsday machine on a whim. He didn’t actually want to use it to destroys the universe (which might have marked him as a nihilist). He didn’t want to use the weapon as leverage to gain any kind of political or ideological or even personal advantage. If we take him at his word, the Great Gazoo made this vastly destructive device purely in the pursuit of the scientific challenge.

    Had the Great Gazoo done something beneficial or even mostly harmless purely for the pursuit of scientific knowledge (such as cataloging rare chemicals or charting the mating habits of a newly discovered insect), we might admire his single-minded love of scientific knowledge. But his willingness to put literally all considerations aside just to see if he can create something marks his philosophy as “Scientism” (not “science”) in a very frightening, fanatical and archetypal sense.

    Dude, you typed way too much. I understand what you’re trying to do but nobody would take the time to read all that.



    If you can’t say it in one paragraph then forgettaboutit.

    Of course, this blog has turned into a cesspool of half the posters doing a “aren’t I wonderful” routine to impress themselves.

    Regarding heisman candidates, my money is on the quarterbacks instead of the running backs because their longevity i.e. threat of injury, is less risk.
