From deadspin.com: How A College Kid’s Photograph Helped Launch Denard Robinson’s Heisman Candidacy.
We’re thinking of making a movie out of this story. Sort of a Rudy meets The Social Network. The photographer will be played by Michael Cera. Michael if you’re reading this, give us a call.
“He was, like, ‘Dude, you’ve got to put this photo up on the AP,’” Wolson said. “And I said, ‘Why? It’s a cool photo, but it’s not anything fantastic.’ And he said, ‘No, you don’t understand. It looks exactly like the f**king Heisman pose!’”
Reggie Bush is set to become the first player in the 75-year history of the award to be stripped of the honor. Meanwhile the Football Writers Association of America is preparing to vacate USC’s 2004 national championship.
Not to condone Bush’s actions but I find it pretty laughable that USC basically makes millions on the back of unpaid talent and a questionable education. USC is far more to blame here than Bush, but even more than USC, the college system is completely dysfunctional.
What say you?
