  • jasartrip9598

    Only Ohio State could lose a player like Burrow who capped off a great title season and have their own QB sitting right next to him as a sophomore finalist. They are literally the only team that can do something like that.

    Not to be that guy, but he may have grown up in a poor town but his family was very wealthy. His dad was the defensive coordinator for the University of Ohio. According to a 2013 article his salary is approximately $125,000. It's pretty misleading to act like he's just some kid from Athens, Ohio

      That's why it's amazing to see that despite his stable upbringing, he still has concern about the community around him, knowing their situation.

      What's your point? He used this time to talk about others, shed light on kids who don't have a lot. He wanted to set an example and he made one. The Athens County Food bank had $500,000+ donated because of his speech. He could have talked about a zillion other things but chose to talk about something that matters to him. Good for him. He is realizing he has a huge platform to make a difference. What a great start.

    Wait a second. Are you trying to tell me there are poor WHITE people? How can we justify our “poor, discriminated BLACK folks” narrative if this turns out to be true? This is very troubling for the cause.....

    Even as an LSU fan I was starting to think Joe might be a robot cuz of how stoic he has been. Of course there was no better time to let it out. All of LSU country is thankful he chose us and we’re forever fans of him! Geaux Tigers!

    Even if he doesn’t do well in the NFL, this guy is a future man of the year contender. That’s a better award than an mvp in my eyes.

  • abiogenesis

    Joe is the kind man whose career I will follow to the end, no doubt. What a guy.

  • SooperFlye

    Though Jalen Hurts didn't win, his NFL prospects are going to be good. Hurts was almost a has-been at Bama after losing his 1st string QB position. Left Alabama for the Sooners and look what happened. Runner up for the Heisman.

    When he said “You can be here too” referring to the impoverished kids in his hometown area it really hit how humble and genuine he is. Not just some dumb jock. Wish him the best

    When you look at this kid he's the total package. He has accuracy, arm strength, can read defenses and he's mobile. Then the best thing he's a leader and a kid others will follow AND fight for. His character just shines you would be a fool not to take him #1 Cincy. Greatness in store for him. 🙏🏽

    No dis respect to coach o. But the Eddie Robinson award for coach of the year should go to Baylor’s coach that team lost 11 games year before last and won 11 games this year no team has ever done that before, coach o took a good team and only made them a little better Matt Ruth took a bad team and improved them emmencely
