The Hurdle

I am told that this run by Georgia's Knowshon Moreno was not shown on either SportsCenter or College Football Final on ESPN.



This despite the fact that the redshirt sophomore is listed on just about everybody's Heisman Trophy candidates list.

Now, I'm no conspiracy theorist. Still, you can bet that if Moreno played for Southern Cal or Ohio State (when, oh when will media folks wake up and realize that if Southern Cal played in the SEC they'd have 2 or 3 losses every year and that there are at least six teams in the SEC that would challenge for the Big 10 title if they played in that league?) that highlight would have been all over the national airwaves.

I know, I know--I should turn my attention to some of the real injustice that takes place in this old world, but UGA football is one of the few things in life about which I let myself get irrationally emotional. It's therapeutic.

So true! And I do find it surprising that this run wasn't on SportsCenter...nice hurdle.

By the way, I'm still enjoying Vandy's win over South Carolina. That one will feel good for quite some time.
