Being a Red Head hurts TCU QB’s draft stock

Andy Dalton led TCU to it’s first ever Rose Bowl victory, but his draft stock remains uncertain just days before the NFL’s marquee event. Despite coming from a school of just 8,000 students, it is not Dalton’s experience that has scouts worried but instead his hair color.

 An unnamed director of personnel told Sports Illustrated, “Has there ever been a red-headed quarterback in the NFL who’s really done well?” a coach asked one reporter last week. “It sounds idiotic, but is there any way that could be a factor? We’ve wondered.”

It’s good to know NFL teams keep their priorities straight when it comes to scouting… a player who takes bribes and money illegally- no problem! But a red head? That’s a different story!

Little Sisters of the Poor congratulate TCU’s Rose Bowl win with billboards in Ohio

Despite going undefeated, Texas Christian University has been criticized for playing a weak schedule. Earlier in the season, Ohio State President George Gee denounced TCU saying, “Having been both a Southeastern Conference president and a Big Ten president, that it’s like murderer’s row every week for these schools. We do not play the Little Sisters of the Poor. We play very fine schools on any given day.”

Now that TCU has won the Rose Bowl and defeated Wisconsin, the Horn Frogs are not letting Gee forget his comments. 20 electronic billboards have gone up in the Columbus, Ohio area congratulating TCU on their Rose Bowl victory, from “The Littler Sisters of the Poor.”

Ohio State finished second behind Wisconsin in the Big 10 and instead went to the Sugar Bowl where they defeated Arkansas. There is no telling if the Buckeyes would be able to beat the Little Sisters of the Poor, but as my 90-year old grandma says, “It’s Catholic so it’s no monkey business.”
