Carl Joseph and Myron Rolle

Have you ever heard of Carl Joseph? This might be some of the most dramatic sports footage I have ever seen. Meanwhile: you can hate FSU, but how can you hate Myron Rolle? Rhodes him!

(Speaking of wildly successful outliers, here's a very interesting Q&A Malcolm Gladwell did with ESPN the Mag. Hmm: Gladwell's next NYer piece is about college QBs?)

In a sports landscape dominated by the negative stories, both of these were great to hear. Thanks Dan!

My favorite part of the NY Times article about Myron Rolle was the criticism of Rolle by Mickey Andrews because Rolle wasn't totally focused on football. Uh, Mickey, you work for Florida State UNIVERSITY! That's a place where, you know, students go to CLASS in order to get a degree so that they can become successful members of society. I know that might be a foreign concept to Mickey Andrews, but as the ad says, most student-athletes wind up in careers that are not in the athletic field. I hope Myron Rolle gets the scholarship, but I also that the Gators beat the stuffing out of the Seminoles next week!

How about they call it the BCS tournament, have the 6 conference champs and two at large. This year it would probably be Florida, Alabama and the best two from the Big 12
