Who is next? Who will fill this vacant holes?
Gary and Verne’s Tebow immortal love affair with Tebow read like a torrid yet a romantically complex Nicholas Sparks novel.
I invite you to cast your vote (below) for the next pivot man of the 2012 season. Write in votes are welcome. There are three plausible candidates for the 2012 season, in rank order, are: UGA QB Erin Murray, Bama’s AJ McCarron and Tennessee’s Tyler Bray.
Murray: We love these supremely hyped UGA boys with great hair and the occasional football play that you can bop along to but who are also just a little bit naughty. He could easily grace the cover of Tiger Beat magazine. Make no mistake about it: UGA and Erin look good, but they don’t necessarily play good. Erin will be on CBS a lot as the Dogs are in the preseason over-hyped mode again. He plays QB, so Gary can talk about his feet and hips. Erin has solid name recognition, so he can be Freudian slipped with Erin Andrews.
McCarron: AJ or “Bama Boy” exploded into the T-Town Ghetto football scene with rock star attitude and really has remained a fixture despite being tagged as a “game manager”. AJ is a scruffy, grunting, but secretly sensitive rebel persona. Winning the BCS NC gives AJ a harder edge than your typical Bama QB heartthrob. Yet somewhere along the way, the unthinkable happened: cool people forgot that AJ really doesn’t have the arm to be a big time SEC QB. Because of this, I consider AJ to be a bit of an underdog in this competition.
Bray: The long-haired pretty boy swaggered onto the SEC Football scene with gun-slinging attitude, a lot of spectacular touchdown passes against shitty opponents, throat slashes, and weeping on the sidelines. He is a true bad boy in the style of Joe Namath. He is a reckless jet ski driving, with a sensitive, lonely rich kid attitude who tosses beer bottles at coed’s cars as he is getting his ladies’ man swerve on instead of facing his problems (like winning an SEC football game). Initially he won’t get the national exposure of AJ and Erin because he doesn’t play for an “it” team. This could change if Bray is able to overcome Dooley and win some ballgames.
