I’m too lazy to embed a link right now, but all media outlets are reporting that Les Miles finally had enough of CB Tyrann Mathieu a/k/a Honey Badger’s antics – now kicked off the team for good. That’s not just good news for SEC quarterbacks.
My immediate reaction has only grown stronger as the evening progressed. David Amerson is now clearly the best defensive back playing college football in 2012. Even if foes try to throw away from him (and hopefully, Glennon puts so many points on the board that won’t be a viable option), it’s likely that Amerson will walk away with some hardware this December. Even more exciting, I no longer see any other defensive player to split votes. Not saying that Amerson has a shot at winning the Heisman…but a dark horse to be invited to the ceremony and finish Top 3-5? Most definitely.
I can’t imagine better PR for NC State football, and I can’t think of a better kid to enjoy such well-earned acclimation for his ridiculous skills (with feet, hands, and brain). Football season…almost here. Thank God!!
