Johnny Football - the unsportmanlike that wasn't called on him against Rice
TheSandTrap.com Top Picks
Problem is they did not have proof of him taking money.
And you're correct, ESPN wanted him to play this season...
He's gifted i give him that. But he doesn't have the arm strength for the next level. I think he's a tremendous College QB, but he's not all that. I could care less if he parties, more power to him, but RESPECT the GAME.. I wouldn't be shocked if he took a few late hits this year, or the ref's throwing a few extra unsportsman penalties on him.

There are a lot of quarterbacks on this list who were mediocre NFL QBs at best.
Johnny is fast and talented, but only one year - a sophomore on the field.
Let's give the guy a football break before we pronounce him the "next coming" or the next "Tebow."
Like a lot of players, the guy works hard on the game and has maturity problems.
Let's see where he is at the end of the year and chart the progress.
The team will probably not do as well this year, as it is a young team, so let's look at his arm and how he develops in maturity.
